5.0 Simone P. Fresh Meadows, NY

Captain Max was referral and I could not be happier. He responded to my initial call within one day, asked appropriate questions to make sure he understood what I needed and came up with a plan. He was completely transparent with how he did his pricing and made a time to come out to my home within the week. His reliability and punctuality was only the beginning. I was so happy with the repair job that he did and I ended up asking his advice on a few other projects which led him to have to come out a second time. Again, besides the creative and attention to detail work he did, he is really pleasant to work with. I wasn't sure how to find a solution for an area in my house, and Max thought about it, presented some ideas and really had that "mind's eye" going. He has an easy going manner and humble way of talking. I had no idea how accomplished he is until I researched him a bit further. He has no airs about him and really enjoys what he does. He did not leave until he completed every thing that I asked. His pricing was very fair and he was as "out of the way" as he could be. He was so happy with some cold seltzer while he worked and that's all he asked for. I am so happy that Captain Max was sent to me. His work ethic, work product and pleasant professionalism are the complete package and I happily would recommend him for any project large or small.

5.0 Jocelyn K. New York, NY

Max did a lovely job fixing some damaged molding. So happy with the work he did. He is generous, communicative, and has a great eye. Thoughtful, knowledgable, and talented. I highly recommend him!

5.0 Fredlee K. New York, NY

He has not yet completed the work. So far so good

5.0 Neil R. New York, NY

A few years ago, Max built some great bookshelves for our apartment in NYC. Today he helped me out by installing some sliding shelves in our under-counter kitchen cabinets. He does wonderful work, and is a real pleasure to deal with. And very engaged with the upper Manhattan community.

5.0 Ferah C. New York, NY

This review is long overdue however, I would be remiss if I didn't write something. I had an ikea wood table top that needed to be refinished due to food having spoiled and penetrating the wood. Max was honest and upfront about the cost. He even gave me a discount which I sincerely appreciate. The ugly stain was removed and then refinished to protect my table. Would definitely recommend him. He is reliable, flexible and genuinely nice man.

5.0 Jenni S. New York, NY

Max was so professional and knowledgeable about furniture repair. He is truly gifted. I highly recommend him!!!

5.0 San Diego, CA

Max is a consummate professional. I ordered a kitchen table and benches that were way too big for my space and he came, picked it up and sized everything down beautifully. You would never know it was altered. He delivered it back to me sooner than expected. Terrific to work with.

5.0 Esther L. New York, NY

Max is great and efficient with tasks that need to be completed. He thinks outside the box and is quick on his feet to further fix the problem. Max is honest, reliable, and to his word. He'll finish tasks on time and is passionate about his works. We admire his fast pace efforts and respect how excellent he gets the job done. Would recommend to friends, family, and business partners.

5.0 Larry L. Westminster, MA

Captain Max is a cherished friend and man of the highest character. He is a consummate craftsman who not only efficiently installed ceiling fan lights in our home but also fashioned the combination yellow and white gold wedding rings my wife and I are pleased to wear and about which we have gotten many compliments. I have also several times met him for lunch or dinner in Manhattan and often on those occasions got to see the exquisite work he was doing in several of the top pubs and restaurants in high end areas of Manhattan. I recall, as well, his being featured in a Village Voice article awhile back which brought out his incredible knowledge of the great variety of woods and their appropriate uses based on their differing inherent qualities and characteristics. He also loves boats and sailing and as a result has extended his craftsmanship skills into the marine realm. I have on occasion worked with him on boats including on Reid Stowe's incredible record setting 70-foot schooner, the Anne (1,152 straight days without stop on the open sea). I do have to admit that I did find working with Captain Max to be a mixed experience as I discovered when he is on the job what a serious, hard-nosed, tough task master and SOB he can be. Larry L

5.0 Keith K. Brooklyn, NY

Max is the consummate professional! He and his team did a wonderful job in designing, building, and installing a series of built-in bookcases. Not only is the craftsmanship of the finished project of the highest standard, Max himself is responsive, friendly, and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.
