Mark Burford's work is beyond outstanding. He is not only a superior master craftsman, but also an artist and a gentleman.
In 2012 I hired Mark to design, build, install, and oversee a complete replacement of a large gourmet kitchen, which owing to the original architecture was a prominent (if not dominant) space in a high-value house in Orange County. Throughout the project, Mark was a perfectionist. His experience and talent in all the relevant fields (design, materials, woodworking, construction, management, customer service) were evident from the beginning.
My kitchen space has irregular angles and my requirements posed challenges to design and fabrication. Mark met every challenge with unabashed expertise, including the challenge of steering the inexperienced homeowner away from bad ideas and suggesting good ideas instead. Mark supervised the work of the electricians, plumbers, installers of HVAC and exhaust equipment, and granite counter tops and appliances, and made the necessary adjustments on his end so that the finished product of a highly complex installation was flawless. Mark is a good leader as well as a brilliant producer.
The kitchen cabinetry that Mark produced is exquisite. The precision of his measurements, and the execution of the designs in his woodworking shop continue to amaze my guests and myself to this day (2014). The cabinets feature cherry frames and birch panels, with glass-fronted lighted display cabinets and display shelving, and built-in appliances. Every installation is precise and enduring, and the finish trim is perfect. The components that Mark incorporated from other manufacturers are all of highest quality and most recent design; I should cite in particular the finely crafted dovetailed carcasses of the drawers and the superior quality of the hardware throughout the kitchen. Mark made sure that an eclectic variety of knobs and pulls that I wanted were expertly and esthetically installed, as well as practically functional.
I could go on, but if you have read thus far you get the point: Wood Done Right has earned my highest commendation. Mark Burford will impart high art and master craftsmanship upon your project. And he's a really nice guy, to boot.
