 Finding qualified professionals to work in your home can be quite a challange. It is a good idea to check previous projects. Not only will it give you an idea of the quality you can expect but will also indicate whether or not they have completed their jobs in the past...
 I have worked very hard building a reputation of high quality work, timely completion and trust with my clients. A large part of our work is repeat business and almost all new customers are from recommendations.
You need reliable experts to give you the information you need in order to make informed decisions. Remodeling any portion of your home can be challenging and stressful. No matter how large or small your project is can produce a mountain of decisions and finding answers is, at best, difficult.
 I can provide you with the expertise of over 3 decades in the woodworking and remodeling industry as both supervisor and craftsman on a very broad spectrum of projects.This gives me a unique working knowledge in a number of diverse construction techniques and provides solutions to many of the problems that arise on virtually every job site. I will answer any questions you have to the best of my ability at no cost or obligation.
My strategy is simple.
 The more informed you are about woodworking, the more likely you are to have me build your next project.

 Originally from New York, I have been a high end custom cabinetmaker in San Diego for over 30 years
The first thing you need to know is, if you can find what you are looking for, in a furniture store, it will almost always be cheaper than having it custom made.
 Furniture manufacturers make hundreds if not thousands of the same piece and buy their lumber by the trainload. It is impossible for any custom cabinet shop to compete with that type of volume production.

 On the other hand, if you have found what you were looking for but it is the wrong size, there are two options. Custom cabinetry/furniture or, in some cases, modification. There are times when a given piece of furniture can be modified to fit your needs.
In the case of modification, it would be wise to check with a professional before purchasing the piece to be sure modification is cost effective.
 This is a recent effort designed by the
homeowners. It took a bit longer than
I expected but came out great and they
were very understanding.
 I love the color and the granite they chose for around the fireplace looks like clouds floating by. It's perfect on that wall. It was not going to go to the ceiling originally but I'm really glad they did. This was a fun one. The homeowners were very cool.
