|The cabinet of course I just love as I do all your work. Matched the chest perfect. And those two guys that delivered it were wonderful. They even set it on top of the chest for me.... And they offered to do it. They were so kind. Exceptional service. Thank you.... Ya'll are the best!|
|Rebecca||Friday April 27, 2012|
|The TV cabinet is absolutely FABULOUS!!!! Well worth the cost and wait!! The workmanship is so solid and the cabinet is so beautiful!!! I will try to send you a picture when I get to taking some, but it is one of the main focal points in my main room. By the way, the people that you had deliver it were delightful! Very polite, capable, and kind. Kudos to them. They put everything together - the white glove treatment. I compliment you on your selection of carriers. They are worth waiting for, as well...! Thank you so much for your wonderful work!|
|Kathy||Saturday March 10, 2012|
|I do love the dining set-sometimes I just stare at it especially the table top-it is pretty much my dream table and chairs-silly huh?!|
|Sham||Tuesday February 28, 2012|

(assembly was also remarkably smooth).
thanks for all your help!
|Linda||Thursday February 23, 2012|
|Kandas I received the dry sink Saturday and it was beautiful!!! I was so pleased. Thank you so much!!!|
|Grace||Friday December 23, 2011|
The table is lovely! I absolutely LOVE it!!! It looks so nice I almost don't want to use it and getting it dirty ;). We will be testing it out for dinner this weekend.
Thanks again to you and your team for a fabulous job.
|Kathryn Roberts||Tuesday December 13, 2011|
|Our bed arrived this weekend. It?s awesome. Thanks!|
|Mary Ann Lovett||Monday November 21, 2011|
Incredible work! Julie, making the delivery of the table, called to say they were going to be delayed....but that the table was extraordinarily beautiful. I wasn't here when it arrived, but.....I can't think of enough superlatives to throw your way!
Of course having other pieces of your work, I'm not surprised....but truly grateful that you picked such exquisite pieces of tiger maple to enhance the brilliant finish on the table. I had requested tablecloths for my new table on my Christmas wish list. After receiving the table I immediately emailed the family to change that to place mats....'cause I want the table to show and not be hidden underneath material!
Thank you for working so hard to create not just a piece of furniture but a work of art.
|Truyen O?Leary||Tuesday November 8, 2011|
|We received the cricket table last week and it looks wonderful!! Thank you so much for the great craftsmanship!|
|Gina||Sunday November 6, 2011|
|I took Debi her itty bitty chest yesterday and she loves it! In fact, all the scrapbooking gals were oohhing and ahhing over the quality of the finish and the chest itself. Thank you again!|
|Kristi||Wednesday October 19, 2011|
Kandas, I haven't taken the time to say how beautiful the beds look! They came packaged so well and easy to assemble.
There is a lady that may photograph our home for her book. I will make sure to list your business as a resource for our furniture.
|Heather||Friday September 16, 2011|
|Kandas we got the TV cabinet it looks great!!! We are so excited to have our piece.|

|i have recieved my bed and have set it up already. it is GORGEOUS. thank you so much for a job so well done.|
|Hugh and Renae Duncan||Wednesday June 22, 2011|
Dear Shane and Kandas,
We love our bed! Thank you for all the many hours you took in crafting it. We get to sleep on a work of art each night!
The finish is gorgeous - smooth to the touch.
The lines are simple and smart. It has a vintage and modern feel at the same time.
It is the focal point of the room without being pretentious.
It assembled very easily - followed common sense.
I keep looking down the hall into our bedroom and marveling at the beautiful bed standing where there was only a mattress on the floor. Quite the contrast. We were so used to sleeping on the floor that it took some adjustment to the new height when getting out of the bed in the morning. The first morning our alarm clock started beeping Hugh rolled out of bed to go silence it, but the floor was much further below his feet than he had groggily calculated. There was a loud thud and a startled Hugh (and me too). We've got the hang of it now.
Just a note to possibly help future clients:
It is scary to send money electronically over the internet to someone you have never met ordering furniture that you have never seen. More communication and maybe even some emailed photos to let us know and see the progress would have made us feel more at ease about the many weeks and months without a tangible object for the money we spent. We will gladly recommend you to anyone, but that would have been helpful from our point of view.
We did spray paint the bottom bare wood slats brown on the ends because they show a bit when covers are pulled back. Now our eyes are not drawn to the new wood slats sticking out under the mattress, but can enjoy the lovely lines of the whole bed. Thank you for the extra slats you included. We were able to place our mattress right on top of them without buying and cutting plywood. The plywood would have made the mattress rest too high off the side rails, I think, and probably would have been even more visible than the bed slats. I like what you did better.
We are very delighted with our bed. Thanks again,
|Greg||Tuesday June 21, 2011|
Sorry I haven't emailed earlier -- the furniture arrived safe and sound on Friday and we set it up that night. It looks great!
The finish and distressing is impressive -- and very convincing. It's all very sturdy and it was a snap to assemble. The finish is darker than I thought, but I'm glad -- it makes the room. I were to order again, I'd probably go for the red-black-red finish on the bottom of all the furniture (it's simply awesome). All of the pieces are perfectly proportioned, and once we had my mother-in-law help us rearrange the room, everything meshed perfectly. I will send pictures of everything in place ASAP.
Overall, we're delighted with the furniture!

|The chair is perfect.|

|Just letting you know how adorable the toddler bed is. I will send you a picture when I get it all decorated with the bedding. We found the perfect mattress for it last night. Can't wait for this weekend when the grandkids arrive. The baby will love it for sure.|
|Mary Lakhdari||Monday June 20, 2011|
|I received the dresser and just love it.It is exactly as I pictured it, even better. Thank you for such great work and service.|
|Peter Sloan, Banjo Maker||Sunday June 19, 2011|
|Shane, I'm really glad I happened to discover you and, as a result, young master Matthew. It's nice to have made a friend who uses his imagination as effectively and with such powerful results as you do.|
|Brant Miller||Friday June 17, 2011|
|We love the bed - it's beautiful and very enjoyable to look at when going to bed and waking up.|
|Shirley Herman||Tuesday June 7, 2011|
Just received the bedstep today and am totally thrilled with it! I did the 'safety tip test' and it passed with flying colors. Please pass along my thanks to whomever designed/made this with safety in mind! I am so very pleased with this extremely well made and beautiful bedstep. Thank you for your patience, Best,
|Linda Kelsh||Saturday June 4, 2011|
|I (we) LOVE the bed, it is amazing, beautiful and sturdy- everything I could ever have wanted! I appreciate your extraordinary effort to make me happy - finding wide board tiger maple from the same tree - Wow!|
