Rick,

Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the work you did on my oak china hutch. I love the new doors, trim and hardware; you completely transformed the "antique" look of the piece and made it look modern and new! You did the job so quickly and it looks just great! I couldn't be happier.

Thanks again,

Rick,

I researched woodworkers for quite a while before I found you.  After talking to you and looking at your work, I knew I had an expert.  As a result, my expectations were set very high.  You more than met my high expectations--I must say Darla and I love the TV built-in and the cabinetry work you did for us. Further, the process was very enjoyable, from the planning stage, to your project updates and to your approach to the job and sense of humor, you made the process professional and enjoyable.  I truly can say that I do not think anyone could have possible done a better job than you and Noel did.  Thanks!

Rick,

We are writing to thank you for the wonderful built-in bookcases you made for our house.  Not only are you a really nice guy to work with, but it goes without saying that you do amazing work with wood.  You and your assistant Noel came out to our house before beginning the project to hear our ideas for the space, then gave your suggestions and sketched out a design for the bookcases.  You built the bookcases just as quick as you promised, and invited me out to your shop to see them fully constructed before the paint was applied, which I appreciated.  Then you were able to install them just days later, and did a fantastic job dealing with the challenges our house threw your way (like crooked walls and an uneven floor!).  Now that the bookcases are in, I still can't get over how great they look and what a great job you did.  My wife and I want to thank you and Noel for all your help with this project.  In my mind, what sets you apart from most of the other contractors I have worked with is how accessible and responsive you are to the customer.  I was always able to reach you by phone, and you were always taking the initiative to call me and keep me up to date on how the work was progressing.  I appreciated that more than you can know.  I hope that we can work together in the future.

Many thanks,
Steve & Megan

Rick,

Thanks so much for transforming our bookcase into an entertainment center to fit our new 46" TV!! My objective with the project was to retain the details that matched other woodwork in the room, and make it look as though the cabinet was original to the house. The stain and trim you added complimented the existing woodwork, and houses the new TV and its components beautifully! Thanks so much for your attention to detail, and you and Noel's hard work!

Rick,

I wanted to take the time to thank you for the great job you did on the bookshelves. I had spent months looking for something to fill the (2) 108Hx63Wx26D holes that flanked my fireplace. I think i may have visited just about every furniture store in the metroplex. Luckily, I found your site and I must say I was hesitant at first until I read the testimonials. From the first visit, I could tell you knew what you were doing. From taking measurements to weekly updates over the phone, the process was so easy. I definitely was not expecting what I received. i was so impressed with the product you delivered. Even my 11 year old daughter had to say you did an excellent job and she doesn't like anything. I have sent pictures to my family and friends at work and they are all in awe of your work and what a difference a quality piece of furniture can make. I will definitely be contacting you for a restoration on a 30 year old table my mom has been saving for me.. Rick, you are the man!

Hi Rick,

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for our beautiful entertainment center. From the first time we met to discuss the project, I could tell that you were paying attention - you knew exactly what I wanted and how to build it. This was a complicated project - dealing with dead space under the stairs - and many contractors had either not "gotten it" or did not make me feel confident that they could build it and keep our stairs structurally sound. You got the idea right away and knew just what needed to be done. The finished product is beyond our expectations - our family room looks completely different and we love spending time there now. The other projects you showed us in your workshop made us wish we had more room so we could have you build something else in our house! You and Noel were a pleasure to work with and I appreciate your quick response anytime I had a question for you.

Thanks again and one of these days, we'll come up with another project!

Rick:

I am writing this letter to thank you for the outstanding work you did in modifying our entertainment center so that our new, and larger, television set would fit. I liked your approach to the process. You came to our house, saw what I had, and then asked what I wanted. After I described what I had in mind, you made suggestions to improve upon my concept. At first the improvements were broad in nature, and then progressed to finishing details I had not considered. In less than an hour we had agreed upon a concept and you had sketched out the project.

The finished product is not only beautiful; it is extremely well made. It blends in perfectly with the other sections of the original entertainment center. In fact, the entire unit looks better than it did before! The bonus was that the work was completed much earlier than you had originally projected; a very pleasant surprise!

In summary, it was a great pleasure to work with you not only for your excellent craftsmanship, but for your responsible work ethic as well. Please feel free to use me as a reference.

Yours Truly,
David

Rachel says...

Rick's Woodworking recently constructed a built in desk system for our home office. We say down with Rick and explained our specific functionality needs for our home desk system. Rick offered some creative design suggestions to achieve the look and functionality that we were unable to find in a pre-fabricated desk unit. We are extremely impressed with the craftsmanship and design of the desk unit. The desk, cabinetry and shelving exceed our expectations and look absolutely stunning in our home office. Thank you Rick for your commitment to service and quality. These are not enough craftsmen like you around these days !

Respectfully,
Rachel G.

From Mark,

Dear Rick,

Once again I want to thank you for helping us out of our dire situation. We had our hearts set on a wonderful set of living room furniture and due to unforeseen circumstances, were left without a hope of obtaining it locally. After much searching through our various furniture emporiums and outlets, talking long distance with our deserted furniture manufacturers and perusing and evaluating multiple online local custom builders, we had you into our home and lives.

It has been three weeks since you came to our house to discuss the possibility of custom crafting several pieces of furniture for us. During that time, you have never been anything but gentle, reassuring and kind with us. You looked at our desired furniture online and the pictures we had of the designs we longed for and said, "That would be no problem." After much discussion of size, desired woods, stains and styles, the decision was reached that you would indeed be the fulfiller of our dreams. In addition, you gently encouraged us to see beyond the mundane and add the finishing touches that would make our new pieces outstanding.

What a wonderful job you have done! In less time that projected, you were able to construct and complete several units for us. The four piece entertainment center, which stretches thirteen feet across a main wall and soars over eight feet toward our cathedral ceiling, the wonderful credenza which graces the entry view to the room and the matching enclosed bookcase are all wonderfully crafted, beautifully finished and will be a lasting testament to the extreme joy and pride you place in your workmanship. You never once made us feel uncomfortable in handling our questions and frequent calls to check progress. Your professionalism in handling and installing our new pieces was second to none!

Words cannot express the pleasure, the pride and the complete satisfaction that fills our hearts at this time and I know that we will forever remember how you treated us. God bless you in all your endeavors. May your business flourish and your heart find peace in your obviously God-given talent.

Your friend,
Mark Johnson

From Kathy & Jim,

Thank you for the lovely addition you built for our living room. When we bought this house, we were faced with the dilemma of what to do with an existing, awkward cutout space. Our new built-in entertainment center fits beautifully and is just what we needed for all our TV components. You and Noel did an excellent job and we're very pleased with the results.

Kathy & Jim
Las Colinas, TX.
