Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is a deposit required?
A. Yes. When I send you the quote, I will include the deposit required. It is typically one-third the cost of the project.
Q. Can you make a piece of furniture if I don't have any plans?
A. Yes. All my work is custom. For each project I draft an overall drawing based on pictures or sketches the customer has sent to me. The drawing is included with the quote.
Q. Can you make custom built-ins for me?
A. Yes. The customer is responsible for the accuracy of the measurements for any unique built-in piece.
Q. Is shipping included with the price?
A. Yes. The quote will include packing and shipping costs. Large items are shipped ground freight.
Q. What type of wood do you use for your pieces?
A. I typically use Cherry, Walnut, Birch, Red Oak, White Oak, Soft Maple, Hard Maple, Cypress and Mahogany. For painted projects I use Poplar. If the customer has a preference, I need to know that to determine the pricing.
Q. How quickly can I expect my project to be completed?
A. After I receive the deposit, I will provide you an approximate completion date. Because I complete one project at a time, the time will vary depending on my workload and scheduling.
