From start to finish, John was responsive, helpful, kind, willing to help with any other small thing that came up. I am so happy with the work quality with he did replacing my door and making it work for my home. He spent days making it top quality and I couldn't be happier. I will work with him on every upcoming project I have at my home.

Finish Carpentry

John was fantastic. He did a thorough assessment of the requested job and gave a very fair price and quick timeline. He did a beautiful job transforming our built in cabinets to reflect our current needs, the stains and finish matched perfectly! He was very kind and talked us through the whole process. I’d definitely recommend John in the future.

Door Installation

John did a beautiful job. I hadn’t been able to open this door for years because the laundry machines protruded too far, but it turns out switching a door from swinging on the right side to the left side is actually quite difficult and I was having a hard time finding anyone willing to take on the task. I finally tried Thumbtack and John came through. Hallelujah! The first picture is of the blocked door, the second and third pictures are detail of the door successfully installed on the opposite side. The same door and hardware were used.

Door Installation

John did an AMAZING job replacing and retrofitting a new door leading into our kitchen. The door he replaced was an older one, he cut the new door down to size to fit, and adjusted the jamb to make it work. His quality of work was way better than I anticipated. John was friendly, extremely skilled and professional, and more than fairly priced. I highly recommend John, and will utilize his services again in the future.

Closet Remodel

John was so great and easy to work with!! He assisted with renovating my closet shelving and added more rods to allow me to utilize the space. He was sincere and genuine about what he could do in order to make the space work and seem larger, and was extremely affordable. I would HIGHLY recommend John!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Most of the time I work on a time and material basis. I will issue a 'Not To exceed' figure upon request, so the client knows there is a limit. On occasion that figure is exceeded, I usually stand to my quote. I will flex from some bids depending on the situation. I just had a client that wanted a novelty 'Gnome' door built for her grandchildren to enjoy. If I had charged my set rate the job wouldn't have been done. The enjoyment I received by completing it was something money cant buy.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Keeping the client at ease and informed of what the process will be. Go over details before work starts. Prepare the site and protect existing plants or furniture, assist with pet control if needed.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I started my career by attending cabinet making classes sponsored buy the Univ. of South Carolina on the GI bill. After moving to the SF Bay area and joining Carpenters Local#22 I took advantage of many training programs and seminars. I was then hired by UCSF and continued my education by attending many door and hardware seminars. In my lead position there I led many saftey and work related talks.
