In planning our move from Northern Virginia to our home in Florida, My wife and I faced a potentially costly issue with having to replace our dining room table and buffet set, because the 104" long table would not fit into the considerably smaller dining room in our new home in Florida. Although we really did not want to replace the set, we had already conceded that we would have to run a local Craigslist ad, and hopefully be able to find a buyer who would offer us pennies on a dollar for the set, or have to give it away for free before the movers show up in 30 days. My wife was already looking at $5,000 replacement sets. Ouch! Running out of time, I thought if I could find a skilled woodworking craftsman that would take on a small but challenging project such cutting down a table top by about 20", we may be able to make the dining set work in the new home. Through Thumbtack, I described the project, received a list of potential woodworkers, and solicited to a half dozen furniture builders for the project. I received a response from only one individual, Gerry Hurley of Max Min Design. I read the reviews of Gerry's work, and impressed by the photos of his past projects, we hired Gerry. Gerry's price to do the project was very reasonable, and in addition, he said that he would be able to complete the job in ample time before the movers show up. Gerry got right on it. He came to the house with the right tools and was able to do a fantastic job; cutting down the table top, making the necessary modifications to the under supports, shortening the finished side rails, and stained and finished the end cut surface to perfectly match the rest of the table. Gerry even used scrap from wood removed to make a number of matching wood plugs to cover all the new screw holes in the shortened side rails, to look exactly like the original construction. To look at the table now, it is impossible to detect that the table had ever been modified. In addition, Gerry also stained and finished the 20" section that was removed so that I can possibly use later for a nice sized matching coffee table. All I need to do is add the four legs. Gerry, I welcome you and your good ethical nature to this USA. The end product and the professionalism you show in your work clearly portrays the pride you take in your skill and craftsmanship. A great job Gerry! Thank you!
HB Woodworking was professional, courteous, and did an excellent job!
Tim worked on various installations and assemblies, like assembling a stepping stool, wooden futon, and installing towel racks and curtain rods, etc. He is a hard worker and seems to have endless energy. I have been very happy with the above mentioned work, and found that he was willing to go the extra mile to deal with problems encountered along the way, e.g. a weird plastic piece appearing on what was supposed to be a bronze metal towel rack, so he did nifty things to hide the plastic. However, more recently, an assignment he had happily accepted--to build two side tables and a coat rack--had to be aborted. Unfortunately that was after lots and lots of time had passed, I wished he had called it off or not accepted the assignment in the first place unless he could see it through, so that I could have had the items done by someone else long ago, as I was desperate to get several home improvement things out of the way. The side tables--which are pretty--were done for the most part but not fully (I still need to find another woodworker to do the unfinished business) and the coat rack was not done at all. Somehow his heart was simply not in it anymore, but would have been better to just straightforwardly cancel a job rather than dragging things out. This is why I am giving 4 instead of 5 stars. He did feel bad about how things went with these three pieces and therefore didn't charge me for one of the side tables.
Craig did an awesome job of restoring a very old teak coffee table. We asked him to take his time with the job and he kept us regularly updated with photos as the work progresses. We are very happy with the results and would recommend Craig to anyone looking for wood refinishing work.
Rob seems to be a jack of all trades who understands how things work and will perform small jobs. He installed adjustable shelving in my pantry and a bedroom closet. There were metal strips with brackets and the laminated shelving had to be custom cut. The pantry was tricky because there was an immoveable bracing board in the back, so each shelf had to have a notch cut into it to fit against the wall. The finished product is exactly what I wanted. The shelves are perfectly level in both the pantry and the closet. He worked very neatly and paid a lot of attention to measuring and cutting. I also hired him to assemble a large desk which I ordered from a catalog. It has five file drawers and a slide-out keyboard holder. He unpacked the boxes and assembled the desk perfectly. He was very careful to ensure that the cherry finish didnt get scratched during assembly. I have also seen some of his other work. He builds cornhole boards and finishes them with custom colors and logos. He creates original signs for basement bars and game rooms using fine hardwoods, hand carving, and a router. He seems to have a real talent for fine woodworking.
David went above and beyond for our job. We were on a serious time crunch, he came out for the estimate over a holiday. He didnt upsell, he didnt push a specific product or service. We interviewed at least 6 companies and David was one of the most knowledgeable and articulate of the candidates. We chose him because he was able to explain the reasoning behind his recommendations, was thorough, and offered a fair price for work. We hired him for interior and exterior paint and refinishing wooden cabinets, but he also helped with some cleanup around exterior windowsills. We were quite satisfied with all of the work, and he finished 3 days ahead of his projected schedule (he worked weekends to expedite the job). Onsite during the job David was courteous and professional. He was also punctual throughout, and a day before completing offered a walk through to call out any additional work. We hope David will be available the next time we need to paint!
Julius is the consummate professional. He is an artist in woodworking and meticulous in his work. He deserves my highest recommendation.
Sam and his team were great! The entire process from start to finish was very professional. We had 3 rooms painted and it was it was a total transformation. Ronny and his painters were very respectful, always on-time, worked hard, cleaned up and were a pleasure to have in our home. Truly a quality job from start to finish. We recommend them to all our friends and family!
Joseph Jordan (Joe) was a true professional and mild humble man. I bought paint only and he used his brushes, rollers, sanding machine etc as needed and completed job as expected and to my complete satisfaction. He is a keeper. I will hire him again anytime 👍 Bhasker Tripathi (6-6-2018)
Saul Lopez installed Crown Moulding through out home, and it looks amazing. He is a true craftsman, I would highly recommend him.
I first met Ron for a custom home office desk project. I had seen a picture of a wonderful contemporary design, but it was too large for my space. Ron was able to do a reproduction to my exact demensions, Walnut species and expresso stain. It' is truly beautiful and something I will have for years. He took the time to send me sketches, come out to show me wood and stain samples, and delivered on-time as promised. Everyone who has seen this piece has complimented it and inquired as to where I got it - I refer them to Ron. We were so thrilled with the results of the desk, we called Ron for a second project - stripping and refinishing a credenza to match the desk he built. We received the same great service. If you are looking for fine wood furniture, you will not be disappointed with Ron!
Dave did great work repairing some old wooden chairs that had been neglected. He was super easy to deal with, responsive by phone and text, showed up on time, and was nice to talk with. Highly recommend him for any woodworking or other projects you may have.
Marvin was great! He gave me a very competitive quote for a full home paint job (wallpaper removal in 3 rooms) and was able to come the very next day for an estimate. I looked at about 4 painters and Marvin definitely is the best deal. He will be starting on my home at the end of the month- I can't wait!
