I think you already know, from our personal contacts, how highly I regard the work that you have done on my furniture. When I saw the damage that had been done by fire, smoke and water to some of my pieces of antique English and Irish furniture I was in despair. Imagine my delight when I was put in touch with you and saw some of your work. I am so pleased with the restoration that you have done that I cannot thank or praise you enough. Some of the furniture that you worked on is now in better shape than it was before the fire. I would have no hesitation in having you work on any of my other furniture or in recommending you to other people who need restoration of fine pieces of furniture. Thank you for your excellent work.
Thanks again for all you have done and for your love and care of that "old" organ. I love it. Also, only if it could talk, what a story it would tell!
Thanks for the great work and all your help with my customer. You are great!
If you ever need a recommendation, it would be a pleasure to recommend you for your skill as a master woodworking craftsman. Thank you again for all the work you have done for me and particularly in constructing that superb, furniture-quality stained glass window frame for the First United Methodist Church in Auburn, Washington.

You have done a beautiful job! I am so pleased - it's bringing to memory the times of childhood when the set was used in our dining room when we lived on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, for a short time, and then for a time in White Center! Karen and Dale are excited to have it in their home - so the memories of family will grow even more!
I was over at one of my customer's today, tuning her piano, and I thought you did an outstanding, professional job on her piano. Someone called later today asking if I knew of any refinishers and I said that 'you did the best in the area.' Keep up the good work."

I love the rocker! I couldn't believe it was the same one. I'm at my moms working with her to put a yellow & white cushion on it - then it's going in the baby's room. I wanted you to know how much your efforts are appreciated!!
Everything Paul has done for us has been top quality work. He has matched woods and finishes to perfection. His finishing is impeccable and his repair work is undetectable. You can trust Paul with any treasured piece of furniture because he is truly a craftsman who takes great pride in his work.

I wanted to thank you for the beautiful job you did restoring my grandfather's chair to match the other one. I've had that chair 24 years, hoping to have it re-done! Thanks so much for your help!
I want to thank you again for your outstanding work. You know how horrified I was when the heavy chandelier prisms fell on my antique dining room table, leaving those deep gouges. I was sick that it couldn't be fixed. Now it is even more beautiful than it was and the places where the damages were are completely gone! I will highly recommend you.

Paul built a custom cabinet for an add-on to our existing kitchen island. We wanted to expand the island and add a wine rack/display cabinet with lighting since the island seems to be the gathering place when we have company. I was interested in appearance and cost of the final product.
As you can see by the picture, the new cabinet is striking and appears as though it was part of the original island. I received an estimate from Paul before work began and pursued several estimates from Home Depot, etc. for factory made cabinets. All the factory estimates were approximately 10 % less but they did not include lighting and I would have to assemble three different cabinets to get my desired add on. The bottom line was....Paul gave us a bargain. Customer satisfaction is what you will receive from Paul.
I wanted to let you know I just got home from teaching school and saw the chairs. You did a magnificent job on them and we would highly recommend you to anybody and thank you for having the chairs ready for the Jewish new year! Take care and have a nice weekend."

This is George Anas from southern California. You did that awesome job on our hutch a few years ago. It recently got damaged and I don't want anybody but you touching it. Will you please call me?"
"Hello, Mr. Hander,
This is Mrs. Allison in Federal Way. My husband just brought home the chair with the arms refinished and I want to tell you I am thrilled with the color that you did. You did a beautiful job and I thank you very much."
I want to thank you for the nice job you did on the furniture; it is lovely and we are very happy.

When our 1980's vintage television needed replacing we were faced with the dilemma of finding a cabinet that would fit our new television and not block our picture window. Using our end tables as a model, Paul Hander was able to design and build a cabinet that not only matched our tables but was a perfect fit for our new TV. With his excellent woodworking expertise he was able to reinvent the "console television". We have already scheduled for Paul to work on our next project - converting a glass fronted gun cabinet to a curio cabinet.

This is Marie Roberts. I just wanted you to know that my son and his wife saw the finished stereo cabinet you refitted and refinished and they just thought it was so beautiful and I do too. You just got a perfect match and I just wanted to tell you it is very beautiful. Thank you."
"Hi Paul, this is Nancy Becker. I wanted to tell you that my chairs are gorgeous. They are so pretty and they are much sturdier. Thank you very, very, very much!"
Dear Mr. Hander,
I wanted to tell you how beautiful you made my grandfather's dining room table and chairs. I'm so proud and excited to show it to people - especially my siblings who were just here visiting from Virginia. Thank you for your hard work and expertise!
