The Cabinet looks beautiful. I am ecstatic about how it turned out. Thank you so much for all your patience during this most arduous endeavor.
I want to thank you for your shop's masterful work in crafting my new writing desk. Like your people did with my kitchen and bathroom cabinets, my writing desk is a quality piece of furniture I proudly show off to my friends. Thank you again for personalized service and quality woodwork.

When the cabinets were installed the attention to detail was no less than what we had come to expect. Nothing was too much trouble, and the installer easy to have around at a time when there was a lot going on and a lot of people around. Budget was important to us, and we had to negotiate items on the budget, and what was important and what wasn’t. Jonathan was open to revisions, took time to give us the pros and cons from his perspective on changes, and listened patiently to what we wanted. He did not overrun the budget.
-Chris and Rod Stacey
We love our new cabinets. We consider them our biggest splurge in the project & we couldn’t be happier with the design & workmanship. Not only do we feel good that the materials are environmentally friendly, we were also happy to hear that cutting wheatboard didn’t give the builder headaches like when using standard materials.
We have used WoodWaster many times for several various projects. Not only were the final products beautiful, but the staff was always friendly, courteous, and on time. The attention to detail is also much appreciated. We would recommend WoodMaster to anyone or any company that is looking for a professional contractor to produce and/or create custom jobs.

I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the built-in cabinets that you built and installed in my family room. The combination TV cabinet, bookcases, drawers and display cabinets all look so wonderful- in spite of the difficulties of changing measurements and design due to the new gas fireplace!!
Jonathan worked closely with us throughout the design process as we picked our way through magazine cutout pictures we had collected. The final result was nothing less than outstanding! The quality was that of fine furniture with dovetail corners, fine hinges and a German made slider. Crown mouldings were exact. We receive many wonderful comments from friends and neighbors.
-Pete and Donna Pearson
Jonathan is a pleasure to work with. He responded to my requests and accomplished the look and features I wanted. I would feel very positive in both using him on future work or referring him to a friend.
My wife and I had and ideal experience with Jonathan and his staff. They were always available and solved all questions quickly and accurately. We started with a few sketches of what our kitchen might look like and all those ideas were incorporated into the final installation. Our project was a little different from some of his previous kitchens. The installation crew kept the perfection goal in mind until the job was finished.

Rob and I want to express our appreciation for your beautiful work on our cabinets. I especially want to thank you for all of the time you and your assistants spent working with me on design and materials. You went out of your way to be accessible and helpful. The result was beautiful, everything fits and any adjustments that were needed were made promptly. Thanks again for your exceptional work.

Woodmaster gets our "best contractor" award for our kitchen remodel. From start to finish, they were fairly priced, on time, and professionally installed. Our remodel was a challenging one as our choice of cabinets for our kitchen demanded exacting construction and installation with very little "wiggle" room. For final adjustments after install, they were more than willing to accommodate our very particular tastes. Their attitude was always customer oriented and always willing to satisfy. Their quality was exceptional. We highly recommend Jonathan and his welltrained professionals. We couldn't be more satisfied.
-Louise and Deb Michelotti
The cabinets you made for us are rich in color of the stain you matched perfectly to the ones we already had in our home. Your installation and resulting look have already gotten many compliments and I will let you know in the next house I build of the cabinets which are needed. The workmanship and obvious quality of your cabinets rank with the best cabinets I have used in my 20 years as a general contractor. Thank you for a superior product!
-Mark Boudart Construction, Santa Cruz
Excellent job! We were totally pleased with the cabinets and installation. The job was completed on time, neat and tidy. Use them, they’re great!
We Love our custom built-in buffet. Jonathan & Steve were a pleasure to work with. I presented a simple line drawing & explained the look & feeling I wanted this piece to have. Every detail was considered, including a perfect color match to another piece of furniture. It is an absolute show piece.
-Matt & Peg Guerrieri
I thought your company was very professional. I thought the work was high quality. I am glad I called. The kitchen looks fantastic!
-John Filighera, Santa Cruz
For our kitchen cabinet reface project Jonathan Leys and his WoodMaster staff worked consistently to give us exactly what we wanted (even when we weren’t clear on what THAT was!). We so appreciate their attention to detail and perfection... as well as their patience. They show a great balance of professionalism and personal attention. You would never guess that it is a REFACE and not new cabinets!! We highly recommend them for their artistry, craftsmanship, courtesy, communication, and efficiency!
-Karen and Skip Gill
The cabinets are so Beautiful.Your crew installing them were so nice and just got everything to fit and line up perfectly. But I really love how the kitchen turned out with the pull out drawers, the beautiful bathroom vanity. I so appreciate the craftsmanship of what you and your crew did for me. I really love it. Thank you so much.
I am very happy to announce that Woodmaster transformed our dark and outdated kitchen into a warm, bright, and cente parary kitchen where family and friends truly enjoy a woodmaster's efforts in using natural maples which added a refreshing elegance to our home.
-Haheim Kardevani, Aptos
Thank you for doing such a wonderful job on our cabinets. The quality of craftsmanship is superb. We have gotten so many compliments on how beautiful your work is.
-Greg Mussallem, Carmel
Wow! Not only do the cabinets look great & exactly match the color of our existing cabinets, but were finished and installed ahead of schedule!
-Scott Smith, San Jose
WoodMaster was very detail-oriented throughout all the phases of the project- design, measurement, fabrication, finish, and installation. Jonathan contributed good ideas during the design phaseThe schedule for the project was adhered to very well in comparison to most we have experienced.
-Robert and Linda Powers
Our experience with Woodmaster was excellent from the initial customer interaction on design through final installation. The final project is everything we expected and the installation went very smoothly. All of the folks at Woodmaster were great; professional, courteous and friendly.
I am very pleased with office staff, field crew, finished product, follow up, and management. I look forward to a long term professional working relationship.
We are very pleased indeed with out built-in drawers and cupboard. They are a beautiful addition to our newly decorated bedroom. We have had many compliments from other people and would like to thank you for doing such quality work that will no doubt last for years to come.
Our colors were unusual, and we changed our minds a number of times. With your excellent advice and customer service, we ended up with a splendid kitchen.
-Jeau & Maurice Norcett, Seascape
Jonathan Leys worked diligently to create custom cabinetry throughout our new home and it was a pleasure to work with him over the course of this project. He and the staff at Woodmaster were able to offer many ideas in how to make the cabinetry as functional and beautiful as possible. We are pleased with the final result and would highly recommend Woodmaster to others.
I have worked with woodmaster on several jobs, and will continue to do so in the future. They do fine work and stay on schedule and budget.
-Dennis Grist Construction, San Jose
The work was done on time. The staff is friendly and courteous and I appreciate their attention to detail.
-Kim Tschante, Aptos
Jonathan Leys at WoodMaster produced beautiful custom cabinetry for our remodeled home. He was responsive and professional and went beyond the call of duty to build and maintain our cabinets. It was a pleasure working with Jonathan and all the staff at WoodMaster.
-Rachel and Doug Abrams
Ryan and Seth installed the cabinets in my office last week. I wanted to tell you how beautiful the cabinets are and how much I appreciate the work your shop did as well at the excellent installation. I am really happy the paint finish. The whole office looks really great. Thanks for all the attention to detail.
We have had a very positive experience in doing business with WoodMaster. Jonathan and his staff have been a pleasure to work with from design consultation, working within our budget, and offering design suggestions, to expert installation! Our custom kitchen, dining room and family room cabinets are a centerpiece of our remolded home.
I am writing to thank you for your excellent cabinet work that you provided for our new residence at 1751 Glenwood Drive in Scotts Valley. Your company did outstanding work, and the resulting kitchen and bath cabinets were spectacular. I would like to acknowledge the craftsmanship that your company produces, and also the professional manner in which your staff carried out the contract with us.
Dear Jonathan, We are absolutely thrilled with our cabinets! They turned out even better than we expected. The quality of craftsmanship is superb, and the cabinets have received nothing but the highest compliments from everyone who has seen them.
-Barbara Powell and Joseph Doniach
WoodMaster, and especially Jonathan Leys were extremely pleasant to work with. We were very satisfied with the attention to details and the level of craftsmanship. Whenever we had modifications of suggestions, Jonathan was always flexible and did his best to accommodate our schedule. We have recommended WoodMaster to friends and will definitely call them again if we have other projects.
Dear Jonathan, Steve, & Everyone at Woodmaster, Thanks for all your extra efforts in making over “green” cabinets - they aren’t completely installed yet, but already they look great and we are very pleased with their look and craftsmanship. And we love that we could keep it as “green” as possible!
- Kathy and Matt Derstine
We greatly appreciated Jonathan and his friendly staff for their patience during our many consultation visits. We had some pretty specific ideas on what our kitchen redesign and cabinets would look like but Jonathan and team helped us solidify our options and advise us on hardware. The installation crew were very neat and organized. They were mindful of our new floors. The quality and craftsmanship throughout the cabinets is a testament to the pride and care at WoodMaster.
-Paul and Agota Obleas
From design to execution my kitchen is more than I dreamed for. Three years later, and I still can’t think of anything I’d change. It was a pleasure working with woodmaster. They believe in perfection and achieve it.
At the end of 2006, we had WoodMaster construct wine racks for our new and oddly shaped wine cellar. We are extremely happy with the result and with their professionalism. The work was done in a timely manner and with special care.
Jonathan, You did a fantastic job! I’ll love recommending you to clients. High kudos to Ryan for the installation job. He was a real pro.
We are very pleased with the staircase bannisters and rail that you installed recently. Leon and I appreciate your fine work and efficient and courteous manner. We will enjoy this beautiful addition to our home for years to come.
