I recently moved to the area, and the footboard to my grandmother's bed was literally broken in two by the moving company. Fred did an AMAZING job putting the footboard back together (and in record... time) ... no one would know it had once been broken! Thank you, Fred!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

We had a formal table with more 50 years of dings and aging and a tea cart with a nasty water stain. Fred made tham both look new and delivered them when he said he would. I would highly recommend Magic Touch to anyone considering repairing or refinishing nice pieces of furniture.
Re-upholstered and refurbished old chair: I loved my chair....but, after 7 years it was falling apart. Fred did a fantastic job refurbishing and reupholstering my old chair. And, now it is as if it is BRAND NEW!!!! He did wonderful work, delivered on time, and was easy to work with. I highly recommend him!!!! And, I will use him in the future! Very Satisfied Customer!
I was searching the internet for someone who could reupholster the cushions on my wicker chaise lounge. The "Magic Touch" web-site told me they did kitchen cabinet refinishing also, and I had very ugly dark cherry finished cabinets that have depressed me ever since I moved into my current home. So I called Fred. He seemed interested and knowledgeable, and agreed to come and give me an estimate, even though I lived pretty far away. His quote was within my budget, so I had him do both jobs. He kept in touch, kept appointments, finished on time, and the results are beautiful. My chaise is good for another 20 years, and my kitchen is so much brighter and more cheerful. I'm sure I'll use Fred again in the future.
Fred has repaired two couches for me in the last 5 years. It's been a pleasure working with him. Honest. Reliable. That's all I can ask for. I don't always remember what I buy, but I always remember how I was treated and if my kids have anything to with it I'll be calling Fred again in the near future.
I am even a bit reluctant to let anyone know how good Fred is as he is almost too good to share. Once his quality of work and great customer service becomes more widely known he will be so busy he wont' have time to take on the many more projects I have lined up for him. Fred did some very difficult federal chairs for me and a Baldwin piano refinish with true master craftsmanship. I swear buy him.
Fred refinished our Open Hearth dining table purchased from Sears 26 years ago. It had a lot of water damage from an upstairs leak and a lot of 'love' from 4 children and 9 grandchildren over the years. We did not have high expectations because of the damage and materials it is made of. Our table is beautiful - better than it was when new. And returned before the projected date. Fred really does have the "Magic Touch". We plan to use him again.
Had 2 chairs reupholstered and they are extremely well done/pattern matched. With that said,there is more to the story. Picked fabric that the fabric store could not id the right side and suggested asking the upholsterer. Fred id'd the "more green" side (what I wanted)as the right side. However,when the chairs were returned "more cream" side was out. I was very disappointed. Fred took the chairs back,redid the chairs in another fabric and worked around the clock to return them in record time. Actually I think he got them back before the original projected date. Fred was apologetic, deducted the cost of the first fabric. Fred also tightened webbing on the frames of my outdoor gliding chairs. He promised he'd make it right if we had any problem since we reused the exsisting webbing. I feel I can trust Fred and would recommend him.
Fred refinished various pieces of furniture for my girlfriend and I before we moved into to our apartment. his work was high quality and EXACTLY what we were looking for. He's an honest guy and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him to anyone!
Fred comes across as a "likable" guy up front, but soon disappoints. Our job took a long time to get completed and I had to follow up several times when promised date did not come to fruition. Also, do not let him look through your home...ONLY AT THE JOB TO BE BID FOR REPAR!!! He will do his best to talk you out of your furniture and or collectible or to "trade out" for his labor. Again, be very vigilant if/when dealing with him and be careful! Also, his "pricing" is very negotiable -already had a quote when he came out and he was quite higher and and then ended up way below the initial quote -interesting!
Fred and his team did a fantastic restoration of the stained kitchen cabinets in a high-end investment home I am working on. He repaired scratches, dings, dog bites out of the molding, etc. The color match when they reglazed the cabinets was perfect! The kitchen cabinets now look new! Fred is a very skilled craftsman and has a very experienced understanding of all the different wood finishes. I am very picky and I highly recommend Fred. I will definitely hire him again for any new projects that I work on.
SO nervous about having my MIL's dining room set refinished and brougt up to date. She passed away, and it felt odd making any changes to it. Fred talked me through the entire process, explaining options, changing my mind on a couple of things that I hadn't understood. I know his prices were more than fair after doing some research. The quality of work was outstanding. I can't thank him enough for making taking such good care of us!
We had a Cedar Chest that came from VA. The top broke. Fred did an excellent repair. Matched the colr perfectly. Great price, great service. May 2012.Reliable!!
Fred restored a 1920's table and a 1930's cedar chest back to their original condition. I am so pleased with his work and how he listened to my wishes. He really knows how to work with people!
