    Steven at Custom Woodwork & Design is truly the best person I have ever hired. He was meticulous in his design work and attention to detail and fully exceeded our expectations. I am a real estate agent and would recommend him for any of my clients. Here is a description of my project: I had purchased factory made cabinets used and retrofitted them to my kitchen.I ended up purchasing two additional cabinets to get everything to fit right in the space, but it still left two awkward gaps. One was a tall 9 inch space next to our pantry cabinet, and the other was an 8 inch space at the end of a row of cabinets. We talked to about 5 contractors before we reached out to Custom Woodworking and Design. All of them said they could do it, but couldn't seem to figure out a design that worked and gave up. Within 24 hours of meeting with Steven, we had drawings to scale that incorporated what we wanted and so much more than we could have envisioned ourselves. He was able to incorporate adjustable bookshelves, a wine glass rack and a wine rack into the tall cabinet. His drawings alone were evidence of the type of care Steven puts into his work, with the bookshelves lined with books of all different colors in his sketches. And the final product is amazing. The two custom cabinets with all of the amazing elements cost me LESS than one factory built pantry cabinet. The exterior of the cabinets were painted white (sprayed) to match my other cabinets, a shaker style panel was built to match, the interior was all maple with an oak detail on the front of the adjustable shelves. And the turnaround time for all of this was a couple of weeks from design to install. Unbelievable. Words can't describe how thankful I am to have found Steven and how beautiful the final product is. Please feel free to reach out for pictures.I love showing off my beautiful kitchen. lyndsey.daigneault@gmail.com.

From design to completion Stephen was always there explaining and detailing what we wanted . He was willing to please and easy to work with . We have nothing but good to say about Stephen .

    Don't be so trusting when hiring from the internet. This company is Not what they profess to be. My cabinet is functional, but the work is shoddy. A custom designer does not know how to install magnets??!! Really??? The doors do not close properly. The left side looks warped. He n his helper scratched our silestone counter tops. Were totally disgusted. This company may have done good work in the past, but for us we will not be calling them back. The lack of concern really upset me. Live and learn.

    Steve is a excellent custom woodworker. He made us the most beautiful fireplace mantel. I'll also mention he is easy to work with. I made two big changes to the project and he was always willing to make me happy. We would definitely recommend him to others.

    5.0 Carole M. Narragansett, RI

    He is very diligent, an excellent craftsman, loves his work and is eager to please.


    The cabinets look very beautiful, and I get many compliments. However, there are some functional problems he had to come back to fix, but they are still not right, so I will have to have someone else come to tweek them. I also found him difficult to communicate with. He was defensive and took every question as a criticism.
