    Dave and Charity of Twisted Willows are an excellent team! The day I contacted them and explained what I wanted, Dave replied with 3 pictures of possibilities. One picture was exactly what I wanted! They listened to all my concerns and brought me into the "Team." Dave created my beautiful Glider Swing without blueprints and Charity added to the beauty from staining and sanding to keeping me posted. The results are exactly like the picture I have had in my mind for the last 5 years. When any problems or adjustments arrived (and there were only a few), Dave and Charity both put themselfs out to rectify them. I could not be happier with the process and the end result! Their creativity, expertise and work ethic is excellent!

    I had a kitchen island made from metal workshop cabinets and needed a top put on it. Contacted Twisted Willows Custom Wood Fabrication & Finishing to have a top made for the island. They decided to put the cabinets back to back with a cupboard in between to hold all of my baking sheets. The wood top and finishing on it turned out beautiful, even the cupboard in between the finish matched the metal perfectly. I am very happy with the workmanship and professionalism from both David and Charity. I would highly recommend them for any job, matter of fact I will be hiring them to build countertops to match the island.

    When my husband Jason was a teenager, his mother (Pat) gifted him a drawing table. Recently divorced and financially strapped it was a hardship but one Pat was determined to bear because of Jason’s artistic interests. Fast forward almost 25 years later, Jason still had the table however, it was in dire need of some serious refinishing. We contacted Twisted Willows after seeing the beautiful refinishing work they have done for some close friends, and were not disappointed. Gone were 25 years of gouges, stickers and sharpie drawings. In their place is now a beautiful blue green, glossy table that is showroom worthy. My husband was ecstatic with the beautiful color. Dave and Charity are knowledgeable, hardworking and stick to your timeline. From custom entertainment centers, spice racks and curio cabinets this duo is ready, will and able to tackle your custom design and finish needs!

    Outstanding woodworking and fabrication. These people think out of the box and are very creative. They have helped me with the design and construction involving my new home. They have also given me some great ideas for smaller projects.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am constantly reading and learning from others. I am in constant contact with my finish supplier. You can never know too much in this industry. Things are always changing and improving, and the only way to offer the top qualities we are known for is to stay in the loop.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Our pricing is based on 3 parts: Lumber, finish, and time. We have access to over 100 different species of lumber, offer 4 levels of finish quality combined with the different sheen options and thousands of color variations, and in some cases have to guess at how long the project will take to produce. To say the least, it can be slightly complicated. Lumber markets are very fluid and are heavily based upon supply and demand. Lumber prices can vary at different times of the year, sometimes daily and without warning. The different finishes that we use can also fluctuate and can vary upon the level of quality that you're looking for. Custom pieces take time. The more specialized, the more time it can take to finish the project.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was tired of the day to day grind in an office. I have always wanted to own my own business and use my creativity to provide amazing, unique products. So one day I just did it. And I regret nothing. It has been one heck of an amazing ride and I wouldn't trade this for anything.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Flooring and trim are the two most common jobs we do. We can do the everyday, run of the mill trim to the very custom designed trim. Painting trim has become very popular, so we do paint a lot. We can match existing trim or run enough to redo your whole house. And with flooring, we can make it so it is unfinished or prefinished. It is an amazing process to take rough lumber and turn it into a beautiful, durable floor for your family.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A customer stopped in frantic. She had picked up a door with a beautiful peice of glass in it at a antique shop. She was desperate to use the door in her home, as she was restoring the home and the door was originally from that house. She had been trying, with no success, to find someone to refinish the door for her. I told her it would not be a problem and got to work. I sanded the door, restained it, sealed it, lacquered it and gave her a call. She stopped in to pick it up and when I rolled it out for her, she started to cry. Tears of happiness. I have never, in my life, been hugged that hard. She was beyond happy. And so was I. It looks beautiful in her home!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you are asking a professional for their advice, please, take it to heart and use it. We are here to help. Not hinder. Trust us. We will keep you in the loop the whole way through the project.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Custom products take time and are not mass produced. If you want it to be done right, we need more than a day to design, manufacture and finish your order. Please plan appropriately.
