Testimonials


"I wanted to formally thank you and your team for the outstanding work on our cabinetry in NOTL. You have exceeded our expectations in craftsmanship, attention to detail and execution. I am thrilled with the overall appearance of the kitchen. Your design and input throughout the process has been spot-on to our requirements and taste. You have our highest recommendation and we will be talking soon I hope re perhaps some basement cabinetry. Thank you again very much and much continued success to you and your team." Dennis B

"Working with J. Sinke Wood Interiors was the highlight of our recent renovation. Jonathan's attention to detail, dedicated craftsmanship and respect for our ideas and plans made it a pleasure to work with him. In our century old home with crooked floors and challenging angles, Jonathan skillfully adapted the cabinetry to these challenges and worked with us to create an efficient, pleasing kitchen that is built to last." Laura Mullet Koop


"Jonathan built our office/library which consisted of a large, custom made desk, multiple book shelves, wall units and surround wood paneling. I have lots of experience with renovations and I have learned that it is imperative that the job be done right the first time. Nothing reduces stress more than finding the right individual--someone thorough, competent and who understands the job well. I chose well. My office turned out beautifully. Considering the amount of wood work, technically sensitive veneering and difficult lay out to the room (odd bulk heads and awkwardly placed windows) the end product was nothing more than exceptional. Jonathan was meticulous, reliable and reasonably priced. A job well done. I will definitely be using Jonathan again in the future."

"Jonathan built a beautiful custom bathroom vanity and matching mirror for my bathroom renovation. They were made of cherry wood and were finished in a rich walnut stain. His work is flawless and his prices are very reasonable. Jonathan is very personable and great to work with. I would definately use his services again and recommend him to anyone looking for custom wood furniture."
