Introduction: High quality custom furniture and cabinetry is what I do best. I’m truly happy and at my best when I’m working with my hands and challenging my mind. My mechanical engineering background, my creative drive, and my love for building things all come together with woodworking. Woodworking is what I was meant to do.

Furniture Refinishing

Outstanding Experience, Quality and Workmanship! We had a solid wood bedroom set that we bought when my wife and I first married - but that was 30yrs ago - so the honey gold coloring was a bit dated to say the least. We contacted several potential companies to refinish and Ryan was by far the most impressive from his interactions with us, including providing suggestions on options for coloring (we chose a combination of painting and staining) , to his methods for applying (he sprayed on the coloring - so no brush stokes!). During the process he stopped by our house multiple times with samples of paint and stain helping us settle in on our final choice. He came and picked up the furniture- being very careful to make sure they were handled with care. And then - the final product came - and we couldn’t wait to tear off the bubble wrap! Wow - we couldn’t have been happier! Outstanding quality - like it came straight from the factory and was brand new! And the color choices he helped us with turned out to be super impressive! We couldn’t have been happier with the whole experience and the resulting product. If you have any refinishing work needed you can’t go wrong with Chestnut Ridge and Ryan, simply the best!

Furniture Refinishing

Ryan just refinished a damaged dining room table for us. He did a fantastic job. The table looks better now than it looked originally. He was very responsive to my many questions and took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for. He is friendly, professional and a pleasure to work with.

We contacted Ryan at Chestnut Ridge to build a custom storage unit for our master bedroom closet. This was to replace the basic reach-in setup we had. From day one, communication with Ryan was prompt and a breeze! He was great at helping us flesh out the design we had in our heads and was great at answering all my dumb questions! He kept in constant contact during the build at his workshop, and was considerate to swing by and pick up the drawer pulls from our front porch while we were out of town. Installation went smooth over a day and a half, and before walking away, Ryan touched up the stain in some small spots and made sure the finishing touches on the unit looked great! We love the unit/set up! And its high quality and the tailoring to our wishes really makes all the difference. I would recommend Chestnut Ridge to everyone I know. If like me, you are skeptical/tired of the big box stores or mass produced online options; treat yourself to Ryans craftmanship!

After months of looking for a TV stand that would fit our space, we were about to give up. Ryan custom designed and built a functional and beautiful piece for us. The install was seamless. Ryan was great to work with and we look forward to using him for future projects and highly recommend him!

I had contacted Ryan about building a cabinet to hold all of my vinyl records and record player. I sent some examples of what I was looking for, and he was happy to work with me on exactly what I wanted including color, finish, materials, and price range. He was professional, accommodating, flexible, and took the time to explain anything I had questions on. The cabinet came out wonderfully! Not only does it function as it should, it looks amazing. The level of detail, exact yellow color, and satin finish style are all exactly what I was hoping for. I couldnt be happier with experience and finished product. Ill certainly be commissioning Ryan for another piece of furniture in the near future.
