Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have a BA in Interior Architecture from UC Davis, and two masters from California Collge of the Arts: one in Industrial Design and the other, an MBA in Design Strategy. I specialize in high-end work and custom creation in the shop as well as on site. I design and build custom woodwork, cabinetry, furniture, trim, and molding. I also repair and refinish fine furniture. I have years of experience doing drywall damage repair, interior and exterior painting. I'm available for smaller projects that might include faucet and plumbing fixture installation, as well as the installation of lighting fixtures that have been pre-wired by an electrician. I enjoy being challenged by design problems that require a creative solution. I specialize in the repurposing of materials, upcycling and restoration. I have spent years working on LEED certified projects while at the same time restoring some of the finest craftsman and Victorian homes.

Dave did an amazing job creating custom cabinet doors for us recently. We needed to replace the door fronts on a rental and needed to get it done quickly. We first looked for ordering our own but quickly realized that was a daunting task with fulfillment times of 3 months. I found Dave on Thumbtack and he came out the very next day. He provided options for helping me order the doors and hardware and then installing them and also options for him to build the doors from scratch. We ultimately decided to have Dave build the cabinets doors for us and I couldn’t be happier with the results. He painted the interior of all the cabinets to match the new paint on the doors as well and the doors look even better than anything we could have ordered and it took 1/3 the time of ordering. I highly recommend using Dave for any woodworking project. He is responsive, professional and does awesome work!

Details: Kitchen • Bathroom • 21-25 • No, my cabinets are already assembled • Both wall and base cabinets • I need help choosing cabinets to purchase • No existing cabinets to remove or I will remove them myself • Residential

We needed some trim and polish work done in our kitchen after a full DIY remodel and Dave came to the rescue. You get so stressed about the big things that you often forget about the little things that need to be fixed when doing a remodel (e.g. installing trim and baseboards, refinishing the ceiling where the upper cabinets were installed, sanding and caulking edges, etc). Hiring Dave was the best decision. He not only polished everything with amazing craftsman quality so we could move on to the next big install but was also willing to teach you if you happen to want to do things yourself in the future — a homeowner’s dream!

Details: Casing • Plaster • Yes, I will provide the molding or trim • This is just an installation job - no design needed • Solid wood • 41 - 80 ft • I would like it painted

I hired Dave to do some dry wall and baseboard repairs for damage caused by a water leak. He was very good about discussing the work up front, describing what he could do, and suggesting ways to minimize cost (obtaining materials myself, etc.). While the work was being done, he also kept me informed about options and decisions to make. He went through cans of paint left by the previous owner to see which were still good and find the one to touch up the patched area. The quality of the work was very good and the price was very reasonable. I'd definitely hire Dave again if I needed similar work done.

Details: Patch damaged drywall • 2 rooms • Wall(s) • Residential

Dave handled our paint job with a level of professionalism that far exceeded expectations. He was extremely responsive and patient in helping to determine the best colors and application for my project. I'd have him back again. He was the easiest vendor I had the pleasure of working with on this project.

Details: Commercial • 3 rooms • Trim • Walls • 2,500 - 3,000 sq ft • 10 - 14 feet • Repainting - color change • Excellent - clean and smooth • No, I would like the professional to supply the paint • No, I will move the furniture or wall hangings myself
