"We are a family that loves craftsmanship so when it came time for a new family table we just couldn’t stomach what we were finding in the stores. Besides, I do some woodwork myself and I knew that there were some great woodworkers out there that would love to build us a table. I did a lot of internet searching and found Mark and we fell in love with his work. Mark is a true craftsman but more than that he is a genius at design. The woodworking here is very complex, functional, beautiful and truly unique. Beyond the aesthetics the table is very practical as well. Our table can be a simple round pedestal table or can be dramatically expanded by adding six 16” leaves. The table can be expanded to fit a huge family gathering!
Mark has also been phenomenal in supporting us after our purchase. During hurricane Harvey I damaged the table top moving it to higher ground. Mark was planning to come through Houston and added on extra time to repair our table - it is now back to new condition!
If you choose Mark to create your heirloom you won’t be disappointed."

"I have had a chance to really go over the desk and live with it for a couple of days. It is a wonderful piece of work. Beautifully done and incredibly well thought out. I am a very tough critic on this type of project and I am truly delighted. The care you put into details and the precision work is apparent to the trained eye. The design of the keyboard draw is excellent and I will be using it for my keyboard. The joinery on the drawers is outstanding.
Thank you for doing such a tremendous job. I am very, very pleased. Can’t wait for the next pieces!"
"My husband wanted a desk made out of mesquite, something rugged and native that would honor his Texas heritage. We had no idea that what we'd end up with was a piece of art. Mark turned "firewood" into something that seems lit from within. We've totally rearranged our front room to make it the focal point, which it deserves to be."
"I just wanted to let you know that working with you has been a fantastic pleasure. As a fellow craftsman, you created for me a watchmaker's desk that is truly a one of a kind work of art. Each time I sit down to work on a timepiece, I surround myself with elegant beauty, style, and function.
Mark is passionate about his work and truly cares about his customer and his creation. I look forward to working with him in the future!"

"This is a good opportunity to tell you how much we love and admire the table you made for us. The wood, the proportions, and the finished table are perfect! At breakfast, lunch, dinner, or bill paying time, we love sitting, eating, and working there. It's a beautiful -- and functional -- piece of art that we are enjoying every day. Thank you for this treasure."

"Mark really listened to what our needs and desires were for these benches. He designed and created an extremely high quality product that we were delighted with. From concept to finished product, Mark was wonderful to work with and even went above and beyond."
Sonya and Kristen, Austin
"We wanted to let you know how happy we are with the furniture you've made for us over the years -- the dining table, the coffee table, and the stools. Your care and experience really show. All your designs are constructed superbly and are holding up well. We have received many compliments for your work. Thanks again for all you've done, your work keeps getting better and better."
John and Malou, Austin
"I absolutely love my furniture that Mark made. They are so beautiful and comforting me every day. They delight my days. I'll treasure those pieces of furniture...actually they are more than just furniture but art. And they will be gorgeous antiques 100 years later. They will be inherited in my family. Thank you so much Mark for your great work! I'm sure I'll ask more furniture for me in the future!"
