Review of Bubinga/Wenge Coffee Table
by Seth Nov 27th 2012
I commissioned Mike to make me a Bubinga and Wenge coffee table for my living room and it turned out exceptionally! He had some of the most beautiful waterfall-figured bubinga lumber already in his shop, and we ended up using that. Mike is an expert when it comes to working with exotics, which is why I chose him. i wouldn't hesitate to use him again!

Michael is an incredible craftsman who has an amazing eye for detail. He designed and built the custom bar in my man cave and my wife and I could not be more pleased with his work. Michael is trustworthy and honest. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with him.
Review of dining table
by David L. Jun 27th 2012
Mike was fantastic from day one. He is a real craftsman and put a lot of thought into the design and worked with us on all the details. He is very tech savvy and kept us in the loop with pictures at every stage of the process. I would love to work with him and his team again. Custom-made was a great help in putting us together.
