I can't say enough good things about John and the work he did for us.
We hired him to build us a large, modern, floating cabinet for our living room. It needed to be custom built to fit around a 74 inch electric fireplace, and we wanted cabinet doors on either side of the fireplace. John showed us pics of work he had done, wood samples, and then took our ideas and his expertise and created a MASTERPIECE. I'd post pics if Thumbtack would let me because it's beyond beautiful.
We loved it so much we hired him to make us a custom dining table with a custom bench. Only a month later, and all the pieces are finished, in our condo, and look stunning. The attention to detail John puts into his work is impressive and impeccable. Also, I can honestly say he is the BEST communicator of any contractor we have ever used (and we've used a lot for many different projects). We texted him with LOTS of questions and photos and we never waited more than a few minutes for a reply. I didn't expect such prompt replies EVERY time, but he always made himself available and was always friendly, knowledgeable, patient, and accommodating. AND he cleaned up after the installation (even when I told him he didn't have to, he insisted.)
Last but not least, we love his work so much that we've also hired him to make us new kitchen cabinets and I KNOW they are going to be amazing.
True story: My father (who had been in the furniture business for over 30 years) saw the dining table today and said, "I'm astonished and happy to see that furniture like this is still being made, because I haven't seen anything close to this quality in stores."
Not one complaint, or suggestion for improvement. We were impressed from start to finish. We wish we could give more than 5 stars.
