The stool you made us up is excellent. A rare piece of furniture that is always admired by the people who visit our home. The clean lines, color, and gorgeous grains of the wood make a statement of giving a life to the piece. It makes a statement of what can be done when superior workmanship is evident in the final product. We enjoy it for its beauty and practicality. If you need a stool, this is the one to have.
Thank you very much.

I had a small bookcase that my grandpa built years ago that needed some rehabbing. Michael went above and beyond and offered to teach me some basic skills for restoring a piece that had taken some abuse over the years. He was very patient, knowledgable and fun to work with. Great finished product - I think it would make my grandpa proud.

I needed an exterior door replaced. But before that could be done, a lot of planning had to be done. It needed framing, which led to a series of things that needed to be done before the door could be hung. That's where Michael Childs' ability not only as a carpenter, but his creative thinking came in. He was able to take a job that might have stumped someone else. He was able to resolve the problems and I know a door that is hung properly. Michael Childs showed up at the time we agreed upon, and I will use his services again. Michael is an artistic woodworker and carpenter. Having a good experience, at the moment, I can't think of a thing to improve your service except I hope your craftsman is as good.
You responded: Nelkane was/is very good customer. She was involved with the work. She understood the problems. She was supportive, kindly, intelligent. She paid me promptly. When I ended up working extra hours because of the complexity of the job, she volunteered to pay me extra. You can't do better than that.

Great service, very professional & honest. Well over-qualified for many handy-man jobs. Punctual, dependable and fairly priced, what else could you ask for? Would definitely recommend to friends and family!

5/5 stars RespondVery meticulous in detail and very professional. Michael's talent and commitment to doing the job correctly should not be underestimated. Detailed craftsmanship takes time and the finished product is something that will last (and be cherished) for generations. The boys enjoy their new corner beds
