I have been dealing with Richard from affordable woodworking for the past 10 years. Recently I asked richard to make a custom wine cellar and as always delivered an amazing product on time as promised!
I will continue to use Richard and would recommend his services for those who appreciate custom quality.

I've had very positive experiences , my projects have been extreamely custom and not your cookie cutter projects. Richard was attentive and discussed drawings in detail and was able to make suggestions and come up with approaches and methods that made the execution of the projects a success.

I would recommend him without reservations.

Richard from Affordable Woodworking is always my recommended #1 choice when offering custom woodwork to my customers. Richard is professional and offer quality products and services. As a professional contractor in home renovation, it is always important for me to provide my clients with top quality workmanship when it comes to custom-made cabinetry. I have referred and worked with Affordable Woodworking on numerous projects over the last 5 years, on both extensive and minor projects, and Richard has always delivered and exceeded my expectations.

I highly recommend Affordable Woodworking for your custom made wood projects. I can guarantee you will be happy with the finish products and services you will be receiving from Richard.

Andrew Grof from Toronto

Was recommended to use affordable woodworking and Richard. It ended up being a costly and disappointing mistake.

We ordered the cabinets and then the problems began. We were told the cabinet doors were made of solid maple. This was incorrect, they were just mdf. Once we found this out we wanted to refund. Apparently this was not possible and we had no choice but to stick with the kitchen.

When we were putting the cabinets together, we found that many of the pieces were not straight and most of the face components had some sort of damage. Some more than others. Then when we wanted to get the doors exchanged, we were told that we took to long to inspect and it was not possible. We reluctantly installed the cabinets.

Now that we have used the kitchen for about 2 months, a number of the drawer sliders stick and don't close all they way unless you push them closed.

The list goes on and I would be more than happy to provide further feedback.

At the end of the day, IKEA cabinets (we have IKEA cabinets in our basement for 5 years now and they look better than the ones supplied by Richard after only a few months) are far superior to the ones supplied by Richard.

My recommendation is to stay far away from Affordable woodworking and Richard regardless of the reviews or the impression of him. I would go as far to say that many of his reviews are possibly paid or fake.

On top of all of this, none of our concerns and issues were rectified. In fact, they were barely dealt with. Richard's customer service was terrible and he was unwilling to work with us to fix the problems. We are now stuck with a kitchen that we will need to replace in a few years.

Hope this helps you in your kitchen renovation.

Richard's work is of high quality and he is also very helpful. We provided him with a design and he was able to replicate the exact same design. I am very happy with his service.

I sent affordable woodworking a design of my plans. Richard came to our house to measure and review the space. Less than 2 months later, he installed the shelving and totally transformed our room. Everything turned out exactly as desired. He fit it shelving perfectly around bulkheads and electrical outlets; built a bench with drawers; built a hidden liquor cabinet. Friends and family are amazed!

Affordable woodworking built two wine rack units for us. The work was very complex. Affordable woodworking completed the work with a high degree of accuracy, and the units were completed on time. We were very pleased with the work.

We recently had our entire kitchen renovated. The custom cabinitry was all done by Richard at Affordable Woodworking.
With our kitchen project, I must say that I can't help but give an A Plus review to the exceptional service provided by Richard. There are many things that set Richard apart from the rest in the industry. To name a few ...Richard not only lends an ear to his clients but he actually thinks it out
loud to assure that he is on the same page as his
client. His attention to detail, ability to not only foresee the desired results but also the necessary steps and alterations needed to achieve the desired results, finesse in woodcraftting through precise and meticulous measurement and application are some of the key reasons why he always achieves perfection in whatever he touches.
Inspite of his busy schedule, Richard was very generous with his time not only during the designing, making of the cabinets, but also during installation. He went over and beyond to ensure our satisfaction. He was always punctual and cleaned up after his days work was done.
I could go on and on about the exemplary service provided by Richard but I thinks what sums it best is that I would love to have him back for any other project in our house and would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat!!
Thank you Richard!!!

Affordable Woodworking has been a "top drawer" supplier of ours for three years now. Richard came highly recommended through an industry colleague and I expect to continue our relationship for many years to come. Affordable Woodworking's attention to detail and ability to fabricate solutions in both design and application are a recognizable asset for my companies ability to service various client demands. Ours is a very "high end" business with lofty expectations and requirements always met with fabulous results. Thank you Richard!
