Testimonials about Mike’s work

“Mike is a perfectionist. He pays attention to detail and turns out very fine work. We are very pleased.”
— Robert Baskerville, Attorney at Law
“highly accommodating. Mike wants you to be supremely happy with the final product, even if it’s for a highly utilitarian purpose like basement storage. He also made a mirror, vanity and wardrobe and all the pieces are truly beautiful; the wood grain comes alive in his hands”
— Jane Howard, M.D.
“Mike was resourceful in the initial cabinet design process, suggesting various options and also ways to minimize expense. On one project, in fact, I changed my mind on the design when Mike had nearly completed construction, yet he was able to make the alteration I wanted at very little extra cost. Mike always executed my designs beautifully, and delivered the pieces on time and on budget. I recommend his services highly!”
— John Woodmansee, Seattle
“Mike builds quality cabinetry at an affordable price. We have used his services for our home many times, building cabinets for our bathrooms, a large built-in bedroom wardrobe closet, a matching dresser drawer cabinet and night stands for either side of our bed, matching floor base and door & window frames and trim, etc. As an architect, I have designed all of the work that Mike has built for me; his ability to read drawings is great, he is easy to work with, makes good suggestions for optional ways of putting pieces together, and does his own installation work quickly and efficiently. I have recommended his services to friends and clients, and would not hesitate to continue to do so.”
— Jerry Fleet, Architect
“We hired Mike to do trim and shelving in a basement bedroom. Mike’s woodworking skills were top-notch. We were equally impressed with how easy it was to work with him. Mike listened to what we wanted and helped us refine our ideas, drawing on his technical expertise and sound aesthetic judgement. Not only was he responsive to our needs, but he made the process comfortable and straightforward. Although we were initially intimidated by our awkward space, Mike really transformed it into something polished. We’re looking forward to having him build cabinets for our upcoming kitchen remodel.”
— Matt Wood, Seattle
“Michael built and installed our kitchen cabinets and we couldn’t be happier. He perfectly matched the cabinets to the style of the kitchen, asked the right questions and saved us from making some dumb mistakes. Plus the cabinets were done on time and on budget. What more could you ask for. You need this guy!”
— Beth Bylund, Seattle Realtor
“Our six-by-seven foot eating nook was transformed into an efficient pantry/prep area. The whole job was pretty efficient: we drafted a rough design of what we wanted; Mike reviewed it and made some useful suggestions; he made all the components, transported and installed them; we paid him. The quality was high, the price was reasonable, so consequently the value was good, which is what I’m generally interested in. I’d recommend him.”
— Russell Sullivan, Corvallis, OR
“Mike made us a handcrafted window seat that fits snug in the corner of our upstairs room overlooking Lake Washington. The work was thoughtfully designed and well constructed with handsome finishing touches. He has also done some tables for us. We really like his work!”
— Molly & Tom Reid, Seattle

"Mike has collaborated with us on several projects. "Collaborate" being the operative word. Mike is fantastic to work with, as he is creatively minded, and is as skilled a craftsman as he is a designer. For us, he has created a beautiful kitchen full of attractive and functional cabinets, as well as a built-in dresser and a multi-media storage system. You bring your ideas, Mike will perfect and execute them. We couldn't possibly recommend anyone at a higher level."
