Description of cabinetry work: Melvin [Satterfield, owner] and his crew stripped and refinished my kitchen cabinets, made repairs to drawers and did extraordinary woodworking to match the end pieces to the oak cabinets. They also rebuilt the area under the sink."
Garrett-Bell says after Satterfield stripped the wood on her kitchen cabinets, he matched the oak veneer pieces and applied coats of polyurethane before reassembling the cabinets and reinforcing their framework.
Member comments: "I never would have believed that my kitchen would finally look new after replacing the old laminate counter. The cabinets were always rickety with a dark finish, but Melvin told me I had beautiful oak underneath all that stain.
"He took the cabinet doors with him to begin stripping them. It was quite a process to totally disassemble my kitchen and have it redone, but it was worth it. I now have the new kitchen I've always wanted.
