Client Testimonial’s

“We couldn’t be happier with our new library! We’ve received so many complements. The bookshelves are exactly what we envisioned.  You listened to our needs and nailed it.”- Pratt  &  Steven

“Don shomaker has designed and crafted several important pieces for my home…integral to my home (a restored 1920’s home on the National Register) These aren’t just “pieces”….they include a table at which I eat and share dinners with friends, cabinets housing a whole house entertainment system in an old paneled den where you can’t tell “old ” from “new,” and a display “beam/shelf for artwork that is art in itself, and finally some floating shelves. I can’t recommend Don too highly. He loves and knows wood…his medium of art . He also hears    your thoughts, your designer’s or architect’s. Integrity, artist, craftsman… that’s Don Shomaker”Jon Ritt

“Don, I can’t tell you how happy we are with our mantel.  I know it    was a difficult situation, with the stone cropping and mortar, but the finished masterpiece looks like it’s been a part of the wall forever! It’s beauty and elegance are finishing touches. Even our contractors marvel at the craftsmanship. Thanks so Much!”- Art & Calland
