Mark was wonderful. He called me back to schedule a time that accommodated my complicated schedule exactly when he said he would – not once but three times. And when the agreed upon time arrived, he arrived. The plan was that he would come look at the big antique linen press (think armoire) which has a heavy door with a 7′ tall beveled glass mirror on it and give me an estimate of the cost to repair its hinge for a $100 trip charge which would be applied to the cost of the repair if he did the job. Instead, in 2 hours, starting at 6:00 pm, he repaired the stripped out screw holes, made new screws, and did so in such a way that there is no visible sign of the damage that had been done. His willingness to work well into the evening saved me from scheduling a second visit. Mark is a true gentleman and a master craftsman. I highly recommend him.

Mark picked up my chair the same day I made the request, fixed it and returned the chair two days later. Very professional, prompt and efficient.
-Susan T.

He was very informative, quick, knew his business and we will use him again!
-Miki F.

Mark does fabulous work! He was able to rescue my dining room chair leg from the wolf-dog teeth marks left on one of the legs. Actually my dog had actually taken some nice chunks out! And now it looks like new. Mark’s work is worth every penny he charges!
-Cate R.

Mark replaced the bottoms of 6 drawers for a dresser. The original ones, the bottoms fell out. The new ones are beautiful, and built better than the original. The bottoms are made of a strong maple plywood; I expect they will out last the original; the support is better than the original. Mark picked up and delivered them. I highly recommend him for furniture repair.
-Deanna B.

Our chairs came back looking like new with newly caned seats, we are impressed. Would recommend Mark, he does careful perfect work.
-Heidi B.

Mark fixed our recliner which was having trouble with the footrest. He did the job in three days, which was a happy surprise, and now everything works fine.
-Rusty S.

I called for a desk drawer repair. Mark came promptly after the call. When he saw the problem, he told me how to repair it myself. He could simply have repaired it and charged me a lot more. Instead, he saved me the $$ and built up good will.
-George R.

My table had several,scratches on it. It was an old dining room table with a pecan veneer. The scratches were very obvious but Mark was able to refinish the table top to look better than new without disturbing the pecan veneer.
-Marie M.

Quality work
-Anne T.

Fixed the legs of a water damaged Buffet, and some 1/4 decorative molding on the front. Picked up, fixed in only a few days, dropped off, I considered the price fair, not cheap but reasonable for Silicon Valley. Not a full restoration. I did not deem if worthy of spending the money, but looks much better than it did before, while not new looking, that was not what he was tasked to do, it looks very nice and hard to tell it ever had a problem.
-Richard H.

Mark repaired a twin sleeper for me and had the work completed far ahead of schedule. I am very pleased with the quality of his work and highly recommend him to anyone in need of furniture repair.
-Polly F.

Mark’s a pro from the old school. He made our old sagging porch swing look new again. We are pleased with his work and his old world charm.
-Karla N.

I just had three chairs recanted. They were very well done and I am very satisfied with the work!! I recommend him highly.
-Charmion B.

A true craftsman. Work he performed was excellent. He is not cheap, but you get quality work that makes him a real bargain.
-Graham W.

Not only did Mark repair my antique chair beautifully, but he also did it very quickly. It was a pleasure to do business with him. I am happy to be able to recommend him.
-Nancie S.

I was a little skeptical going with a person I didn’t know, but I needn’t have been worried. I was completely blown away by Mark’s customer service, his high quality finishing work and the amazing turnaround time to fix my favorite recliner. The value was extremely reasonable and I can’t wait to hire him again to fix my futon!! I don’t think five stars are enough to express my happiness with the job! I’m telling everyone I know, it’s so hard to find a good, reliable repair person. Mark is worth his weight in gold!!
-Kathleen N.

I had moved a dining room table from my mothers house and when the movers opened the table to put the leaves in, they overextended the table witch in turn broke the rail system underneath the table. I called OM furniture and spoke with Mark. He was available to come to my home to see the table that day. He came over around 5pm, looked at the table extensively and said he could fix the problem. This was December 20 and I was hosting Christmas Eve dinner four days later! He said he would try to get it back to me by Xmas Eve. I told him to take his time and not to rush just for the holiday. Well, he called me Friday the 23 and said the table was ready for delivery! He brought it by around 6pm. It is perfect! He showed me where he repaired it, he showed me how much to extend the table and he marked the opening so that in future I will just open it enough to place the leaves inside. He has been working in this field for years and is a true pro! I will definitely call him again for other furniture repairs. The price was beyond reasonable for pick up, repair and delivery.

The man finished his work in record time (1 1/2 weeks earlier than expected)! Mark does high-quality work and would HIGHLY recommend him.
-Barbara G.

The reclining mechanism on an old La-Z-Boy chair was frozen in the “recline” position. We called La-Z-Boy and they gave us an estimate of 3 weeks out to have someone show up, but wanted $100 up front. We called OM, Mark called back the very same day, and came out that evening to pick up the chair. Three days later, the chair was back and good as new. Would definitely hire again!
-Anne T.

Mark repaired two hand carved side arm chairs. One had a broken leg and both had broken frames. Picked-up and and delivered in a timely manner. It is so well done; I can’t tell where they were repaired! Highly recommend for a quality job; he knows furniture repair. I will use again!
-Rosemary G.

 This is the 2nd time I have used Mark’s service(s). Mark tightened (read disassembled, clean joints & reassemble -while re-gluing- all joints for 3 “OLD” cane bottom chairs. Mark also re-caned one of the chairs. Then he was kind enough to deliver same to my home. If I have future repair needs, Mark will be the one I contact.

I have a very expensive leather recliner and I needed repairs and replacement to the springs (seat). I contacted Mark and he was able to come and evaluate the repairs. He took the chair to his shop and called me within 2 days, made appointment to return it and was very punctual. His work is beautiful and I love my “new” recliner!
-Mike A.

Excellent work. We weren’t sure the damage would be corrected but Mark did such an excellent job you’d never know it had been refinished. The turnaround was quick and efficient.
-Ralph M.

Excellent workmanship. Timely delivery.
-Jerry B.

Entered my project on a Thursday night and Mark called on Friday morning and was at my house Friday afternoon. Had to take my two giant recliners to his shop to repair and agreed to do it “rush” without additional cost. Expected to see them in a week or two, but called me Monday morning to tell me they were ready. No one was going to be home until 7 pm, and to my surprise he agreed to deliver them at 8 pm. Great work, great customer service, and great guy. I am lining up my next projects now that I know I have a guy I can trust and who will go the extra mile to make me happy.
-Sandra W.

Mark preforms miracles, my son scratched a coffee table that was my father’s, it was a special piece to me, and I thought it was ruined, Mark picked it up, and refinished it quickly! It looks brand new, I can’t thank Mark enough. It looks great! I will be hiring him again for my side tables. Your furniture is in good hands with Mark.
-Harriett F.

He did a great job on repairing a foot board on a very old bed. The wood was lifting and he was able to make it look just as it did when we were given the bed over 20 years ago.
-Laura M.

Mark did a remarkable job in repairing a nearly 200-year old chair, where the wood frame had begun to crack and break,. It is impossible to see where the damage was. In addition, his fabric man completely put back the very expensive Italian cut-velvet covering without a single trace of any work having been done. As I said it was remarkable workmanship. And his price was very reasonable. I highly recommend him!
-Daniel L.

This chair was picked up on a Thuirsday and returned the next day all fixed. A new chair would have cost me $2400. The problem was inside the back of the chair.
-Jim F.

Mark is an excellent furniture restorer. He worked with me and the insurance company to come up with an estimate that we both could live with. Not only was his work good but he had the project done is a very short time. He even gave our family a jar of honey from his bee keepers business. Thanks Mark. Thomas E in San Jose, Ca

Mark O. arrived on time to pick up the chairs to refinish. He took less time that projected and returned the chairs in beautiful condition. We were so pleased we had him refinish our kitchen table and chairs. Again, he picked up the furniture and returned it very quickly. We were very pleased with the quality of his work. The price was fair and we would recommend him to others.
-Pat L.

Mark called promptly when I requested repair service for a recliner. We thought at first that the problem was simply a broken spring, and he tried to fix it on site. But there were additional problems. Mark took the chair with him and fixed it perfectly, returning it the very next day. And all of this for a very modest charge.

Efficient, thorough, quality and inexpensive. I had two broken windows replaced. The guy was really nice, did a great job and the job was done the same day that I contacted him for a low price. I know it sounds too good to be true, but I’m being completely honest about this. The whole process was actually very easy. He even made a written contract at the beginning of the job so that the terms of the agreement were in writing. I would highly recommend this company
-Adrian M.

Mark was very good and did everything he said he would.
-Mark M.

I hired Mark to repair a wooden dining chair that had broken. He came to the house, gave me a quote, took it away and and returned it back to me the next day better than new. He really went out of his way to work around my schedule which I appreciated and he clearly has a lot of pride in his work. I’d hire Mark again.
