Jill and Neil Meyer: We purchased this chair through a live-auction at the Escondido Municipal Gallery in 2011. It was the first new acquisition for our new home. The chair seemed to be a perfect fit for our Craftsman style remodel vision. We love its mix of cherry and quarter sawn white oak. Our staircase was built based on the same combination. We recently ordered the same mix from Brian for a table base for our dining room table. Our chair – we refer to it as a Morris Chair – now sits in its own sitting room surrounded by large windows overlooking San Pasqual Valley.
Denis and Carolyn Royer: We commissioned a kitchen table for a renovated kitchen. Brian came to look at the space, the style of kitchen, and the wood surrounding the area, took some measurements and began creating. We had to wait a bit longer than planned, but the finished product is well worth the wait! My table was delivered this morning and is exactly, perfectly correct for its place in the kitchen. As with the other comments, the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and design are "top drawer". Brian's creativity designed a table I had not even thought about....the end result could not be better! He is going to build a curio cabinet for me after the first of the year!!
Jeff & Nancy Matloff: After researching several retail and commercial sites for a platform bed that met our functional needs as well as added to our existing décor (early American), we decided that our best option would be to have one custom-made for us. After discussing this project with several contractors, we contracted with Brian to build our custom platform bed frame with drawers to go with the early American antique furniture in our bedroom. In this process, he impressed with his commitment to detail and helping us both develop a design as well as adding all the unique features that we have in this beautiful piece of furniture. We enjoyed working with him throughout and he kept us informed every step of the process. In addition to being a highly skilled craftsman who creates beautiful works of furniture, we both felt very comfortable with him. He went the extra mile to ensure that we would be happy with the final product. We continue to deeply appreciate the beauty and function that this platform bed has added to our master suite. We would recommend Brian to anyone looking a craftsman who can create and build quality timeless furniture products of unique beauty.
Don & Candy Zech: I have known Brian for 30 years. I have actually done some woodworking myself but when it came to building and customizing some pieces for our home there was no other thought than Brian. He has done at least 7 pieces for us over the years. He has built coffee tables, side tables, a library table and an Entertainment Hutch that looks like a Buffet. But his coup d’etat would have to be working with me to convert a ten-foot-tall built in entertainment center made from solid oak into a shelving wall unit with “Murphy Doors” that open to expose a 300+ bottle refrigerated wine cabinet! Fine craftsmanship, attention to detail, great, beautiful, artistic pieces. ~ Cheers!
Debbie Tammariello: Beautiful custom wood work is hard to find. But Brian has designed and built a gorgeous mission style leather chair and amazing cradle for our first grandchild and we are so pleased with the finished product. His eye for detail is superb.
Linda Doll wrote: I have loved and admired Brian's chairs each and every year at the Arts Partnership auction. In 2015 I finally was high bidder and purchased my chair, I loved it so much that after it was delivered I called Brian and ordered a matching piece. They are now the center pieces of my living room and are definitely works of art. My favorite place to relax is in one of these chairs. Thank you Brian
