This table was a lifetime dream of ours. This was also our first project with CustomMade and Alan, and we couldn't be more pleased! The wood he suggested and used was gorgeous, the tooled designed legs perfect, the puzzling surface and and the mechanics of it were incredible, the inlaid chess board just lovely....everything was beautifully thought out and executed. As it was our first piece of really good furniture, we were a wee bit neurotic, Alan was so patient and kind with us and our many changes! He worked closely with us, sending drawings and pics as we progressed through to the final piece. Alan is more than a furniture maker...he is truly an artist. We were so lucky that it was he who we worked with! The piece is everything we could have hoped for. It was shipped beautifully and arrived yesterday, and now sits in it's place of honor. Thank you Alan! We will be more than happy to give recommendations whenever you need them! And if we ever want another custom piece we will, without hesitation, come to you!
