Dear Valarie and Russell,

Once upon a time, when I was a new mother, I rocked my infant daughter in an old painted chair given to us by my husband's family. Over the years, I grew to cherish it more and more because of the precious memories it evoked.

Only today have I come to realize its exquisite beauty. With arduous and painstaking attention to detail, you met the challenge of transforming a once pathetic piece into a treasured family heirloom. How fortunate I am to have entrusted you both with so monumental a task.

In a matter of days, the rocker will be passed down to my daughter, who is only weeks away from the arrival of her first baby. Then, gratefully the cycle will begin again and two mothers' hearts will remember you forever.

-Sincerely Peg Daigle

Dear Val and Rus,

What a wonderful job you did on my dining room set. When our son called us to tell us it arrived he said I probably would not allow him to eat on it. To impress him is a major deal! Once again thank you and yes the wait was definitely worth it.

Dear Val and Rus,

I want to tell you how pleased I am with the desk you refinished for us. It is absolutely beautiful and I know we will enjoy it for many years to come. My husband Steve, enjoyed meeting you and was very impressed with your work and professionalism. I will certainly recommend you for anyone looking for an excellent job of refinishing and service. Thanks again.

-Sincerely, Angela Casalino


We just wanted to express our appreciation for the fantastic work done on a very old secretary's desk. Originally we had planned to place this desk in our bedroom but, after seeing the workmanship and finished piece, we promptly moved it to our living area.

-Thanks so much
Jack and Bev Toolan
