Great job by Fred. I had an antique rock maple bedroom suite that was not usable due to cigarette smoke being saturated in wood. Fred took bedroom suite sanded and refinished it and now it can be used. The job he did was outstanding and made by suite look like new. I would recommend Fred and his company Magic Touch Furniture Repair & Refinishing.

After lugging around my childhood antique dresser/vanity and stool, I finally decided to have it restored for my daughter's bedroom. I am beyond happy that I found Fred Stephens. When I brought him the dresser, it was in four pieces and very beat up after moving quite a bit. I found Fred to be hard-working, very talented, and fair. Honestly, he beat all my expectations and I was shocked at how beautiful this piece was when he delivered it to my home. Restoring antiques takes time to give the pieces the attention they deserve. I am glad that I was patient - it was well worth the wait. I can't thank you enough Fred & Alex for all your hard work. I can't wait for you to do my dining room set!

I have two unusual leather chairs and the seat on one of them tore after many years of use. I took them to a regular upholstery store and they were completely stumped on how to repair them and had to send me away. I went on line and found Magic Touch. I called and spoke to Fred Stephens the owner. During that conversation I knew I had found the guy! Excellent customer service, excellent workmanship, excellent turn around time, very innovative with the repair. I'll be back and will recommend him to all!

I recently had my kitchen cabinets refinished by Magic Touch. My experience was not good. Cabinet doors did not close, trim pieces were installed with flat head nails instead of finish nails, Doors were hung without measuring. You could see brush strokes and the doors that were painted. Prep before painting and staining was very little when I was given the impression that sanding and cleaning would be done. Each day I was told how the owner had 30 years of experience. I not tell by the quality of the work. Would not recommend this company.

Repairs were made and you can't even tell where the damage was. Fred has an appreciation of fine furniture and took care to preserve the value. We highly recommend Magic Touch Furniture repair and we will certainly call him again should the need arise.

We found Magic Touch on a Google search to paint our kitchen island, touch up the finish on the cabinet doors, and paint our crown molding. Fred did a great job on our kitchen. We found him to be extremely knowledgable, professional, and courteous! Our kitchen looks more current and up to date.

Found this company in a Google search. Knew nothing about them and took a stab in the dark at getting two Captains chairs repaired after the arms fell off. Wanting both to look like my side chairs - they exceeded my expectations.

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!

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.

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.
