Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
has an eye for detail and understood what I was after. He is very pleasant and personable and I felt very comfortable leaving him unattended at my home. I am very happy with the outcome. This came through in the bidding process and was the reason for selecting him - though I almost went with someone else due some lack of responsiveness on questions i was asking to clarify the bid. I was worried about potential flakiness on the job as a result of this. However it wasn't a problem once the job started. He seemed to start slow and it took a little longer to complete the job than originally expected. This did not bother me as it was a fixed bid though this may have caused some rushing towards the end. It also meant for some late evening working (until 9:30pm one night) which is not what I was expecting - it caused more upheaval in our days as a result.

does seem to prefer starting a little later and working later than my normal experience with contractors. The lack of responsiveness has resurfaced on a quote I asked for on additional small jobs.

was always on time and always kept the work area (and the rest of my home) very neat. The quality of his work is very high and customer satisfaction is obviously very important to him.

Simply stated,
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
is a class act. Look no further. He's not only a gifted in the work he does with his hands, but he's got vision and design skills that can

that of any architect or designer. He's prompt, honest, thoughtful, reliable, and easy to work with. He listened to our needs and was able to bring them to life in his work. I recommend him to everyone who needs work on any aspect of home repair or remodel. we've done two major whole house remodels--one here in Portland and one in Los
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
--and
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
is, hands-down, the best person we've ever hired. In fact, the idea that he could work on another house for us makes us want to do another remodel. I wouldn't want to do anything else without him. We give him our highest and most enthusiastic recommendation.

Our overall experience was very good.
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
looked over our initial drawings and requirements and provided an estimate for the cost per cabinet. We thought it was very reasonable for custom work. We sent him a graph paper drawing via email and then we went over it in person before he started. He was up front when he said he was busy with other jobs and would take a while, and we were OK with that, we appreciated the honesty (instead of promising a sooner date and then not delivering). We requested that he cut just the cabinet side board (where we had asked for some tricky detail), and he did this so we could come look at it. We were able to OK the design and give him clarification on some of our criteria, along with being able to look at and select the top molding to use. Then after he was almost finished, we were able to come out another time and inspect the work to make sure there would be no changes. Everything looked great.
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
and his crew then came out and installed the cabinets where we wanted them (we did have to cleanup a little bit after them). He took care of a minor flaw in one of the doors right away and gave us a cup of touch up paint just in case. The end product was exactly what we wanted and very nice looking. We will definitely contact
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
in the future if we have other custom woodwork projects.

I only called once to check on the status of the furniture and
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
promptly called back letting us know that everything was on schedule. We also wanted to use matching hardware and so
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
worked with us to select a very close match. The furniture arrived on schedule and was sent directly to the local store that stained our furniture. Old Friends was the store that stained our furniture and delivered it to our house. We were so impressed with the quality of the wood and workmanship. The stain was a great match as well. We plan to order more furniture in the future as our household expands. We also bought some artwork that was displayed at
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
that fits beautifully in our home. We were very pleased with
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
Woodwork's professionalism and courtesy they showed to us as clients.

Overall, it went very well. As one would expect, there was dust, etc., during the fitting, but not bad. When we had a small problem with one shelf area,
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
came out personally to bring a new shelf and put it in. We love the bed, the look of the wall, the whole unit!

We?re been married 25 years, and in our present house for 20 years. Throughout that period we weren?t entirely pleased with our bedroom furniture. Occasionally we?d get up enough dissatisfaction to go to various furniture stores and
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
for replacements, but nothing we saw excited us either. Recently we remodeled the house. Spurred by the remodel, we looked further into getting furniture that really pleased us, and we found
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
? a local furniture maker (nussbaumfurniture.com).
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
apprenticed and worked at the local high-end custom shop, but has now struck off on his own. His particular interest is the use of local, sustainable materials in his craftsmanship. Part of the issue, for us, was that we didn?t know exactly what we wanted (apart from identifying the desired pieces themselves - a bed and matching bedside tables).
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
skillfully guided us through the process of discerning what would really suit us ? offering suggestions from time to time, but mostly helping us discover our own wishes. Several iterations of alternate drawings were produced, until we finally converged on the form of the pieces. In choosing woods (we ended with pacific madrone from the
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
coast range ? some pieces strongly patterned, some clear) he was similarly helpful ? repeatedly providing different samples, and alerting us when a supplier received a new tree for milling. (Some of the local wood isn?t farmed but comes from happenstance ? a tree is uprooted in a storm, is taken down due to interference with a power line, etc.)
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
was prompt, professional, and attentive. He delivered our furniture on budget and ahead of schedule. The pieces are beautiful and finished with exquisite workmanship. They are exceptionally solid, but graceful; they?ll be heirlooms ? for as long as we have heirs. We
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
?t have experience in assessing the price charged, but the amount seems fair in view of the service and furniture delivered. We?re pleased with the value. We
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
?t have any immediate plans to commission more furniture, but having been through the process once, it is no longer intimidating. For our next furniture, we?ll give
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
another call.

Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
said he was a licensed, bonded, contractor with the State of
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
, so after problems with
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
, we turned to the state to help.
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
has never been a licensed contractor. According to the board, based on the work he performed in our house and for other clients, he is requuired to be licensed. Dealing with
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
and getting a quality product with fair service has been a nightmare. After the initial meetings,
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
turned completely unprofessional, had poor follow up skills, terrible record keeping and his craftsmanship of delivered product, although beautiful in design, lacks in quality. Other then the initial appointments, EVERY appointment he was either grossly late, sometimes a no show and a reschedule weeks out. It was typical at some points to have to wait up to 2-3 weeks for a return phone call or email. He never made a single deadline and at one point was over 8 weeks late. When we would reach
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
, he acted bothered by our phone calls. At a later date, when we would refer back to the phone conversation with phone logs & notes, he would deny the calls ever took place and called us liars. Kitchen Cabinetry:

and one of his workers were installing a cabinet insert, they dropped in on it's end. The end was crushed and instead of replacing it, the installed it with a promise to fix it; it never has been done. The inserts were right/left specific.
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
made them wrong and instead of going back and redoing it, he tried to put a bandaid on them. He tried to cover drilled holes with stickies, but it doesn't cover them. He used the wrong paint on the insides of the inserts. The inserts are not finished. Bedroom furniture that is mounted to the walls: It took us 3 weeks to get in contact with
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
to talk to him about a new mattress because our furniture wasn't into production yet. When we finally did reach him, we went over in detail with him about that change and the other things his plans left out. When he installed the bedframe, it was the old measurements.
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
denies ever having the phone call about the mattress! Although we have records to prove it. Because we had other product paid for to be delieverd, we compromised and paid a fee to have the frame redone. The first dresser top started to crack within the 1st week. He replaced it, with a top that had water spots on it and the finished hadn't "set" - he claims we spilled water on it and didn't wipe it up. I wasn't here for the install because he was late, so I left a key. The dresser wood is splitting again.

personally measured our staircase before we ordered a desk.He said it would fit. When he finally delivered it, it wouldn't fit up the stairs. He took it back to his shop, twice to make it fit. In the meantime the desk looks beat up and he tried to fill in the dents with spackle! Rough saw

refused to remake it, even though he was at fault and said so. We upheld our agreement to pay

what he asked for, in full, but he didn't keep his agreement to fix his mistakes.

I received outstanding customer service from
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
two weeks ago. My husband, son and I were playing hide and seek and in an effort to roust the boys from their hiding place, I jumped on the bed. Much to our surprise and my chagrin, a supporting piece of the side rail broke. I brought the broken side rail to
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
, expecting to pay for a new one to be made, expecting to have to wait the usual length of time for custom furniture (8 to 10 weeks) and hoping they wouldn't laugh too hard. I was astonished to be told that; 1. They would replace it within 20 minutes. 2. They would replace not just the one we broke, but the other one, because the rails are made somewhat differently now. 3. And, they would accept no payment because they guarantee their furniture for life. Not even when I protested that the break was due to abuse, not normal use. Everyone who helped was professional, friendly and even kept their
Portland Unique Furniture Makers Provider Name Locked
to a minimum. All they asked was that I bring in the other side rail when convenient so they could keep the old hardware should someone else need it. I still can't quite believe what a great experience this was, but it certainly emphasized the importance and value of shopping locally and investing in quality. Thank you!
