Scott was a pleasure to work with. The beautiful custom mahogany daybed he designed, built, and installed for me turned my back porch into a comfortable reading oasis. The daybed is a testament to his design and carpentry skills, and I was pleased to receive it within the quoted lead time. I look forward to enjoying the daybed for many years to come and wish Scott the best with his future projects!
