Superb, as usual. I know Frank well from prior experience. I have been looking for a nice office desk for many months to replace my old childhood desk. The prices out there are outrageous, and the quality is lacking, its hard to find a good 7 drawer desk as I am used too, most of them cheat with the drawers, and put a fake drawer front with a computer cabinet on one side, and use laminate or veneer on the sides or top. By chance, I went to a used desk furniture store, and there it was. the largest old solid oak desk I have ever seen, with beautiful hand carved handles, lovely side panels, and the double pedestals with full file cabinets, and drawers with real wood dividers! It must have been magnificent when it was new......however it had been used and abused.....big time, the finish was an old fashioned golden oak color, and it was faded and scratched and worn, and really beat up and filthy. definitley potential, though. and at only $175, I couldnt believe it. We called Frank and asked him to look at it, to see if he would be willing to take on the project and how much it would cost. Well, thankfully he agreed to the challenge, and he asked a very reasonable $600 to finish it. He went over the details with us, what color, the type of finish. So of course, to match the desk, we asked him to make a matching book case, one that was same height as the desk, and with the same finish.and others 7ft tall with crown molding detail at the top, so after a few weeks, he called and we set up delivery. He packed up all the pieces, and delivered and set them up himself. To be honest, my dad was really worried. He really was quite skeptical about what the desk was going to look like, especially since he had ordered the book cases as a surprise for me, and wanted me to be happy. He just kept hoping we would not be disappointed, like years ago we had to return some 'hand made' cabinets done by a yokel in arkansas for us, who was all talk! and so dad was having some flash backs I guess! But I was not worried at all becuase I knew, if Frank said it turned out beautiful, it was true, and.............of course we were amazed. simply thrilled with the results. The desk is just gorgeous. He must have spent hours sanding down and refinishing every inch of this huge monster, all the detail, he had to fix up a lot of dents and scratches, and he even reinforced some weak points, and gave me the custom cherry gloss finish I wanted. Truly an amazing job, we could not be happier, and I could not believe he did all this work in just a few weeks. The book cases are solid pieces of art, made to perfection, with no detail overlooked. everyone who comes to my house compliments them. they turned out to be so beautiful flanking the tv in the family room, just warm up the entire house. Ok, so this desk (72x36) ,which brand new, now a days, would probably have cost in the range of 2500 to 3000 alone (but was sold used for $175 , which tells you how badly beat up it was) was taken from a haggard relic to a fully restored better than brand new version of its original glory, a true piece of art, and I am simply thrilled. And for about the same cost a new desk of this quailty would have cost me, I also got three masterfully hand crafted matching book cases, all of which are custom to match and will last for many generations to come. So maybe it sounds pricey, but I think I got a fantastic value for the money, and for the kind of furniture you can not buy at a name brand store, I checked them all, Kanes, Havertys, Oak Wood. You might think custom work like this is a thing of the past, our out of your reach, but check with Frank first! - he might change your mind. All delivered and assembled with the same care and attention to detail we have come to expect from Frank. Simply Superb. I knew he was talented and did a wonderful job with the crown molding and cabinet making and installation, but I was blown away with the job he did refinishing this desk. I just Love it!! I recommend him highly and without reservation, you will be impressed. You can probably check out his web site for pics of the work done.
