Client Testimonials

Thank you for creating such a beautiful piece for us. In the timeless spirit of the Arts & Crafts artisans you built our new table with care and skill. The meals our family shares at the table will soak into it and create the stories that make life rich. This table was something our family wanted for many years and our heartfelt thanks go to you for building it for us.
Dan and Kim and the Boys

Dear Michael,
We want to thank you for the beautiful table you created for us. We appreciate the care and artistry that went into every step of the process. The table is now the centerpiece of our "keeping room", anchoring the other arts and crafts style pieces we have collected. We are fortunate to have found (in you) a craftsman who still believes in the marriage of art and function. It was worth the wait.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We are absolutely thrilled -- our furniture arrived a few minutes ago and it is beautiful! And the workmanship is magnificent! The mirror and ottoman arrived in perfect condition and look great in our room. We can hardly wait to show our family and friends. Only one small problem -- now that we have the ottoman, my husband does not want to leave his chair!

It was a real pleasure to work with you and we look forward to our next custom pieces.

Again, thank you
-- Sylvia and Jim

Floating Stone built an Arts and Crafts coffee table and side table for our vacation home in Provincetown, Massachusetts. The excellent craftmanship is a beauty to behold. We already have gotten many compliments on the beauty of design and the attention to detail.

Two very satisfied customers - Paul and Tom - Manhattan

No surprise, the bar stools are awesome and a huge hit with everyone (Nick loves them and says his family will surely love them)! They are truly works of art. You have done it again. And Tony was a sweetheart - very nice guy. SO, stop reading emails and get to work on the other stool you laggard! Again Michael, you are an artist and we appreciate your work immensely. Thank you for your time and talent.  - JP

The stool is, of course, another masterpiece and it is perfect! Don't you ever screw anything up?! Well, don't start with me now for heaven's sake. Send me any table ideas you come up with. And Michael, thank you again for your artistry - it is a pleasure doing business with you. - JP

Hi Michael,

We so enjoyed meeting you yesterday and want to write to tell you the stand is quite magnificent. It is perfect for the sculpture and looks great in our home. When our son can take some photos of your stand we'll e-mail them to you for your web site.

Best of luck in building your business. You are a person of talent and imagination and we think many people--with good taste--will appreciate your fine designs and craftsmanship.

Have a nice Thanksgiving,

Arnie and Ellen

Alan and I wish to thank you for the magnificent coffee table that you created for us. The design, workmanship, and quality of the wood are absolutely superb. We have dreamed of a table of this quality, and with this authenticity, for years -- and you've made it a reality for us.

We wish also to thank you for your patience and professionalism in guiding us through the unknown shoals of ordering a custom table online. From the color samples, through discussion of fees, decisions on size, and working with me until I was ready to go forward with the final design, you have shown the integrity that is also obvious in your work. Please feel free to use us as a reference either for your work or to reassure other customers about the process of commissioning a piece based on a visit to your Web site.

We're starting to use the table more now, by the way, and finding again that the size is absolutely perfect. I was in awe and kind of afraid to put anything on it for the first week.

I want to write to one of those decorating magazines (like House and Garden) and suggest they do an article on small independent woodworkers like Floating Stone and/or ordering customer furniture over the Internet. I'll copy you.

Hello Michael,

I just wanted to let you know how much I love the custom magazine rack my husband ordered from you. It arrived in perfect condition. The solid wood, the craftsmanship and the wonderful finish really add up to an exceptional piece of furniture. I know I'll use and enjoy it for many, many years to come. Tim tells me that you were also wonderful to work with and went out of your way to be sure it got here in time for Christmas.

Merry Christmas,
Portland, OR

Thanks Mike I received the magazine stand two days ago, it's a wonderful piece with great workmanship. I'll enjoy it for years, thanks again and I'll contact you at the end of the month regarding the screen!



I have the Square Tabourettes in place in New York and they look fantastic-- just what the doctor ordered. Your work is very impressive. It was great to finally meet you in person and to have a tour of your studio and its environs. I'll be in touch about the other piece I mentioned...
Thanks, Eric

From the new owners:
Just a short note to let you know your three gorgeous end tables have been the perfect addition to our family room. A day doesn't go by when we don't admire them and marvel at your sense of design and craftsmanship. It was a treat working with you on our custom Greene and Greene round table, which exceeded even our highest expectations. We look forward to doing more projects with you!
