Customers' Quotes

Glenn personally designed and then crafted a beautiful set of three Shoji doors for our dining room which hides a study area and which complements a rare table we shipped from Japan. We originally did try and source the doors elsewhere but the competition did not provide the 'total' measure and fit service which in the end was invaluable. The doors have been made of cherry wood and frankly are breath-taking. Glenn liaised with the suppliers of the new floors we installed as well as the builder and was painstaking in his detail and totally professional. He really is proud of what he creates and we are immensely grateful-we cannot recommend him enough!
