Customer Testimonials




Steve Perry recently built a kitchen cabinet for my husband and me.  It is  an addition to an existing cabinet and features beveled glass panels and Blum European style hidden hinges with a soft touch closer.  We could not have been more pleased!  The workmanship is superb, and you cannot tell where the existing cabinet ends and the new one begins.  Steve gave us a timetable for when each step of the construction would be done and stuck to it.  He said there would never be any cleanup for us to do, and there never was.  The cabinet is a beautiful addition to our kitchen and we would enthusiastically recommend his work to anyone who loves fine workmanship.

Steve Perry is a fabulous custom wood worker/designer.  I started with having Steve build a custom desk for me whereby I could have two computers hooked up and operational at the same time with plenty of space to work.  The desk is the most beautiful desk I have ever seen and will last a life time. The workmanship and detail is unlike anything else.  Steve is a perfectionist and everything is perfect.

He works on one job at a time, is reliable, professional and trustworthy.  Steve details out everything in advance so you know what you are getting and to ensure that it is what you want before he begins. 

Steve is now working on building cabinets for my garage.  Since the desk, he has redone my bar area into a counter and storage drawers, a custom shoe rack in my closet, a file cabinet in wood and drawers in another closet, and a linen closet with glass that gives an unusual and unique appearance yet very practical. 

What began as one project, has resulted in several more projects because of Steve's quality of work and dependability.  The only caution I have for you, is once you have him build one item for you, it will result in multiple ones because of his workmanship. 

I highly recommend Steve for your woodworking jobs.  I would be happy to discuss this further with anyone wanting a verbal referral as well.

Sincerely, Susan Malecki, Bixby Village

Steve Perry just completed work in our home which included kitchen cabinet refinishing and extensive cabinet refacing. He did a great job. He has a great work ethic and his attention to detail is impressive. He was accomodating to our personal needs and followed through on our style choices. He is a true old style craftsman and the projects look fantastic. We have already asked him to do another project.

Steve was very professional, prompt, and courteous. He explained the work to be done every step of the way, completed the job on time and within the price he quoted to us. The cabinet doors he installed look great and we will be using Steve again for a built-in wine cabinet. It was a pleasure working with him and we highly recommend him.

Trinidad Island, (Huntington Beach, CA)



Larry and I have lived on Trinidad Island in Huntington Harbour for almost 6 years in the beautiful castle.  We loved the house, but it needed some work since it was constructed in 1987.  We didn't want to trust this project to just anyone, but when we met Steve Perry, we knew he was just the right match for what we had envisioned.  He is so professional and creative and listens to what his clients want.  He first built a wine cabinet for our wine tasting room.  It is absolutely exquisite. Everyone who sees it is amazed at how beautiful it is.  Steve built it in his shop and then brought it and installed it in the room.  His work is truly an art.  It was so wonderful that we asked him to redo our Master bathroom.  Steve has great ideas and our bathroom is beautiful.  We still marvel at the superb workmanship. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone.  His work is custom and so worth the money we spent.

Steve Perry, of Steve's Wood Finishing, is a talented woodworker who has completed several beautiful projects for our home.  He first designed and built a floor-to-ceiling bookcase and installed moulding in several rooms for us. We were so pleased with his work, we hired him to design and build a wall unit with an entertainment center and ample storage for clothes for our bedroom. It is a showpiece. In addition, Steve built a stunning fireplace mantle to complement the wall unit.  We are planning to use Steve's knowledge, skill and expertise as we continue remodeling our home. 

Steve has the mind and skill of a master craftsman, and makes valuable suggestions about style and function for each piece he builds.  He builds and installs each piece himself, keeps to pre-determined schedules, and leaves the work space immaculate after each work day.  Most importantly, he is a perfectionist who takes pride in each piece he creates.  It shows.  We highly recommend him.

I am writing to thank you for the excellent service you provided in renovating my kitchen cabinets.  My home was built in 1987 and the cabinets were showing  their age.  After considering alternatives, I decided to have them refinished rather than installing a new set, avoiding the disruption, dust and inconvenience of a replacement, I contacted several vendors for the job and decided to contract with you for the work.  My decision was based on the range of your experience in several areas of home improvement and maintenance.  I believe the research served me well as your finished product made the cabinets look newly installed. I would be pleased to recommend your service without hesitation to any prospective client.  Thanks again for a most professional job.

Steve Perry has worked in our home on several occasions.  His workmanship is outstanding, with incredible attention to detail.  Upon starting a project with a client, he completes the whole assignment before going on to the next client.  What he says he will do; he does.  His pricing is very reasonable; he respects the home owner and their property, cleaning up as he goes and always leaving things cleaned up at the end of the day.  I feel very comfortable having Steve work in my home; I plan to use him for future work; and I highly recommend him.

When I met Steve Perry, I knew I had finally found the PERFECT CONTRACTOR! For starters, he is on time. He is neat and cleans up everyday before he leaves. He also respects homeowner’s property and he honors his bids without add-on charges. It’s obvious he is a master craftsman with years of experience and he does all of the work himself. I will only hire Steve to work in my home and recommend him if you want quality work at affordable prices.

Steve has done work for me in the past.  I was very pleased with his workmanship then, so now that my kitchen cabinets needed to be “renewed”, without hesitation, I called Steve again.  I would highly recommend him to anyone as his work is above reproach, he is very professional, and absolutely trustworthy.  Would I call on him again?  You bet!!!!!!

Steve has been refinishing our front door every two years since 2009.  Why so often you might ask?  Due to its location, our front door takes a beating from the sun.  Once Steve is done, the door looks terrific after sanding, fresh stain and two final coats of high-end product.  We also greatly appreciate that Steve is punctual.
