Commissioned Doug to build a custom kitchen island table that was supposed to be ready in time for the holidays. Not only was it not completed in time, but Doug hadn't even ordered materials for it. Supposedly his supplier had run out of walnut and oak for the past 2 months. Claims he needed my job for cash flow purposes, which makes me think he was using my deposit to buy material for previous jobs, and needed more orders for the cash to complete my job. Not sure if this was actually the case, but after 2 months of waiting decided just to cancel my order.

Thank you very much. I enjoyed working on your project.
I am updating my review. Doug built solid cherry & birch cabinets for my kitchen. I was actually breathless. I never realized that cabinets could be a work of art. So beautifully done and very reasonable (I was probably undercharged)He is a blessing and an artist in the truest sense.

I really enjoyed working with Doug of Turner Custom Furniture on my last project - a table made from Mahogany. Doug made a nice 3d computer drawing during the design phase so that I could see exactly what the finished product would look like. The finished table is beautiful. I would definitely recommend working with him on your next project.

My new bonsai garden display benches are just perfect! I had never had custom furniture made before so I was a little unsure how to go about it. Mr. Turner was very patient and helpful - he even helped me figure out the best configuration for the benches in my garden - thorough, prompt, responsive and upfront. I'm always a little nervous about tackling large projects, but this was actually easy and fun!

Doug Turner of Turner Custom Furniture designed and built a beautifully elegant writing table exactly to my specifications, in a timely manner, and at a very fair price. When I asked for Cherry wood, Doug suggested trim in a contrasting Brazilian cherry. The plans were drawn meticulously so that it was easy for me to see what I was getting. The table is a piece of art that graces my living room. Doug's background in art serves him well. He was rec to me by friends Bill and Margie in Atl, for whom he's done quite a bit of work. Mr. Turner is a perfectionist and I can't wait for our next project!
