I recently had Gabe create for me two wooden dining chairs, a wooden shaker dining table, and a wooden bench to fit underneath the table when not in use. Gabe nailed the specs I gave,  and workmanship is first rate.

I specified highly figured walnut, which is just beautiful with these pieces; classically understated at a distance, becoming more involving with closer observation. There is a wide variety of color and hue with this highly figured walnut.  In some through joints, Gabe incorporated tasteful contrasts between joint tongues and surrounding wood. His eye for wood design is apparent, and you can see his skillful hands at work, as your eyes flow over the pieces.

I am completely satisfied with this purchase, and would be happy to send pictures, or communicate with anyone interested in purchasing Gabe's wood work.

I absolutely love my media console, it is beautifully crafted from walnut and shows careful workmanship and attention to detail. This is my 2nd purchase, the first being a beautiful mid century lamp. Everything about my transactions have been seamless, I look forward to working with Gabriel in the future.

Gabe is a nice guy and a true craftsman who has made furniture building his art and his lifestyle.  He's built three pieces for us now—a bed, and a matching bookshelf and dresser.  Each has been custom designed to our specifications, and all three of the pieces are beautiful and functional additions to our home.  Gabe's designs have always been his own—we've given him sizes and a rough idea of what we wanted, but the final design was always a surprise.  Each piece we have has a balance and simplicity to it that is uniquely Gabe, and I'm very pleased to have some of his pieces in our home.

"Gabe Sutton made two wonderful pieces of custom furniture for me, a hallway credenza and an entertainment cabinet.  Both pieces were of the highest quality and so stylish.  The craftsmanship is amazing!  He worked with me to design and create the perfect pieces for my home.  Both pieces were delivered and hand carried into my home and both were even better than I had expected!  It is so wonderful to have such unique one of kind furniture."

Gabe made a beautiful custom media cabinet for us.  The whole process was incredibly easy.  It was a bit of a leap of faith working with someone whom I had never met, and whose furniture I had only seen in photos, but it was totally worth it.  The cabinet came out exactly how I wanted it.  It was delivered on time without any headaches, and it was very reasonably priced for a custom piece.
