Dear Chris,

Words cannot express the gratitude I have for your renovation of two old precious family pieces of furniture! My corner hutch came up a treat, and my great great grandmother's dresser will hold pride of place in my home. I know she'd be pleased with not only your refinishing but also your carpentry refurbishment of the interior so that I can now safely use the furniture daily.

I highly recommend your work to anyone who is interested. I will always return to you when I have refinishing to do!

Dear Chris,

I just wanted to thank you so much for the work that you recently completed.
I seldom burst into print but on this occasion I wanted to thank you for the incredible restoration that you achieved with various pieces of furniture at my home. Firstly my furniture did not have to ‘leave home’ for the work to be completed (a huge factor for me) and secondly your incredible attention to detail and obvious concern that the ultimate result would be the very best was refreshing, to say the least. Not just refreshing, totally unusual in this day and age. It was a pleasure to deal with a craftsman I did not know that they still existed!
Please feel free to give may name as a reference should you wish to do so in the future. I would be delighted to speak to any potential clients.

Kind regards,
Beris Anderson

Dear Chris,

Just a brief note to thank you for the work you did in my showroom last week. After you worked your magic on my cedar dining suite it sold within the week . !!!
I will certainly use your services again. I will also pass on your details to my friends and any potential clients.

Dear Chris,

We sincerely thankyou for the job you did to the interior timber work in out Wentworth Falls home. Your french polishing skills have given new life to the extensive wall panelling, the doors, skirting, architraves and some of our furniture as well.
What's more you completed all of the tasks within the time and the costs you initially quoted.
Already I have recommended your work to others and will continue to do so. Well done.

Wentworth Falls.

We have had two pieces restored by Chris and have been extremely happy with his work. One we had nearly taken to the tip believing it to be beyond repair but the result after Chris' attention has been amazing. As this piece had been passed down through the family, we are so pleased to have it restored and now part of our lounge room furniture.
We would recommend his work to anyone.
