Darwin is a great talker, but we were disappointed with our experience. We bought hardwood flooring as well as beams and wall planks from him. The hardwood flooring turned out gorgeous, however he assured us that the wood we would receive was painted with our unique color. The wood he actually delivered was not the color we saw and documented in photos. He also under measured the amount we would need and gouged us on the remainder. The wall beams were supposed to be kiln dried, but we later found out that they were probably not. Darwin also told us he could rout one of the beams for a curtain rod, but later said he could not. We ended up not using about $1000 of beams. The wall planks were also not very good quality and we ended up paying for new ones elsewhere. If I had it to do over again, I would have bought elsewhere.

I presented MWT with a variety of challenges ranging from how to harvest the trees I had chosen to how to finish the final product. Each of my problems were more technical and complicated than the last and without fail MWT evaluated them, gave me a choice of solutions, helped me chose and then implement them. As a furniture maker having a source I can rely on is an invaluable partner. Credible and reliable.

I agree completely with the previous review. He build us a wood island which is curling up because it was not sealed correctly. Now it looks horrible and my wife and I have been calling him for help and we won't return our calls. This kid doesn't realize that reputation counts for everything. We plan to sue him in small claims court.
