After arranging to see the piece he was more than enthusiastic to start on it, however he first insisted that we come down to his shop to look at his other items before we proceeded. His work was exquisite and professionally done. Our piece was done in a timely and efficient manner and looked brand new when it was finished. My grandmother and I were very happy that we decided to work with him and would recommend him to anyone. Again, thank you for bringing a classic piece back to life and helping my grandmother appreciate her memories of our original farm house.
