Carpenter Creates Custom Entryway Piece for Homeowner

Angie’s List member Kevin M. didn’t like the look of the entryway to his Severn, Maryland, home.

“I was looking to replace the original linoleum in my home’s entryway and create a bit of a ‘wow’ factor,” he says in a review. “I wanted a curved transition between the slate mosaic tile that I was planning to put down in the entryway and the hardwood flooring of the front room. There were some commercial products for creating such a curved transition, but they looked cheap and awkward in the installations I saw online.”

Kevin decided to have one custom-made, and says he spent almost a year looking for someone who was interested in doing the work. He says most places weren’t interested in doing a specialty item for one time only — they wanted him to buy them in large quantities, but he only needed one. Finally, he says, he found highly rated TCS Woodworking in Baltimore.

“They responded to my email very quickly with a quote and a can-do attitude,” he says. “A few weeks after I first contacted them, I had my transition strip.”

While he says it wasn’t cheap — the strip cost him $575 — he says it was worth it.

“It was an absolutely quality job, and you could tell they care about the pieces they make.”
