We have a kids picnic table, a king size headboard, and a helping tower from Oak and Axe. James is the best! He worked with me in creating our king headboard and took my vision and made it a reality! I cannot thank him enough. I recommend him to everyone! Anything you want made, just ask him!

James was great to work with and did an excellent job disassembling, moving and reassembling our playset! He worked quickly and efficiently and made sure every detail was exactly the way we wanted it. I would certainly reccomend his services and will definitely reach out to him again for future projects.

We love our mud room shelves! When we moved in, we had full shelves and hooks on one wall, but just shoe cubbies on the other. James matched the other side and it looks amazing! The space is so much more functional and looks beautiful. The price was very reasonable too!
