Client Testimonials


I enjoyed working with Charles and his former partner on many collaborations from 2008 to 2013.  I used to call them my secret
     weapon!  They never missed a deadline, and delivered design and fabrication beyond my expectations.

                                            Elizabeth Ghaly   -   Sr. Designer Corporate Facilities, Starbucks Coffee Company



Charles is a professional.  His work shows his ethics in all ways.  He takes his time and does it right from the start of a job to the
     end.  His creativity comes from the heart and resolves itself in the end product that he produces.  I can't say enough about this
     man whose precision working skills are evident from the time you meet him.
                                                                       Ellen C. Freeman    -    Homeowner Seattle, Wa.

I really enjoy working with Charles. His design for mounting and framing my hand-crafted, figured modern tiles from Greece has
     a simple balance that sets the picture off perfectly. He also invented a way to display Turkish rugs on my curved wall. In both
     projects, Charles tested materials to make sure they met up-to-date standards of conservation and environmental safety. It's
     fun to discuss ideas with someone so responsive and creative. I admire Charles' skills and appreciate how trustworthy he is
     both personally and professionally.

I met Charles several years ago when he came to be part of the parish I pastored.  He responded quickly and creatively to
     building projects presented to him…always with grace and style typical of all his work. Charles is the most congenial craftsman
     I’ve ever known…respects his customer’s thoughts and molds them into extraordinary works of art. I’ve seen several of
     Charles’ furniture designs…functional and artistic...incredibly beautiful!
Charles’ warm and caring spirit is obvious in all his work.  He gracefully maintains artistic integrity while being responsive to his
     clients’ design thoughts and ideas. Extraordinary sensitivity to our design needs…Charles listens, ponders and comes up with
     unquestionably the best solution. His creative genius designed a simple and graceful standard for windchimes that respected
     the limited space of our condo balcony and our view of Puget Sound.
