Wow, Bob was great to work with. I took a chance by just reviewing him online, not having met him or seeing his work up close. I sent an antique desk to him by a third party, and we communicated via email about the project. He was super easy to work with, sent samples from which to choose, and then got to work. Yesterday he delivered the desk to me, and it is gorgeous. He repaired some cracks, strengthened the joints, sanded the drawer so it would open more readily, and did a beautiful job with a white stain that allowed the grain to show through. I am beyond pleased and hope to work with him again.
