Chris recently built a beautiful 3 shelf, 2" tiger maple rack for me. He also built me another set of posts so I could give my tube amps some more breathing room. Excellent work at a fair price, delivered when he says it will be. A little bit of a curmudgeon, but so am I. Scott
A few years ago he went through some tough times when his daughter died unexpectedly. I bought some maple platforms from him a long time ago and was very satisfied. He can be a little abrupt over the phone, but in the end you will get what you ask for.
I bought a couple of custom racks from Chris in 3" cherry a few years back, beautifully built, I even sent him the stain I wanted him to use. Thinking of having him build me another smaller 4 shelf one once funds become available .
His daughter died in a tragic accident about 12 years ago and I don’t think he ever recovered. Even before that there were numerous reports all over the forums regarding his service and workmanship. BBB is apparently inept, like the work TN did for me once upon a time.
I feel so fortunate to have a good friend that does high end wood work. I was able to work with him and do a lot of the work myself on a four shelf solid maple rack. It was a winter project so we had a lot of fun getting together on Sunday's and building this rack. It's beautiful! By the way, I sanded my butt off, but it was well worth every minute!
