Our Process

Once you contact us, and we determine what exactly you are looking for, we will take the necessary measurements and work up a bid. We will send you a simple one-page contract that outlines your job details and our price for this job.

If you feel our price is fair and want to proceed, return the signed contract along with the requested down payment and your work will be placed into our job schedule/queue. It is good to note that because we are a one-man shop, jobs are often scheduled several months "out". Your down payment insures your "spot" in the job queue.

Once your job begins, we will focus our shop time on your job. How long we work on your project largely depends on the scope of the job. On average, jobs take 3-4 weeks; new doors and built-ins generally take more time, door restorations take less.

I had a friend of mine say to me when he drove up to my house, "Wow, did you get a new storm door? That door really stands out and looks fantastic." Andy S.
"We love our Rhodes Avenue Woodsmith door. It adds so much to the front of our home. " Patrick C.
Eight years ago I surprised my wife with a garden bench you created for our 25th anniversary. We loved it then and still enjoy it as a focal point on our deck. Beautiful craftsmanship and still as attractive as the day we brought it home. ~ M & MA
Tom made two chairs and a table that sit on our front porch. They are very sturdy and quite comfortable. I like that I can set a drink on the chair arm. They look like new after surviving several winters and summers. Tom is a craftsman with many years of making things from wood. The quality of his work is excellent and I would recommend him to make almost anything from wood. ~ Randy S.
We live in an older University City home with a heavy wooden entry door with art glass insert, original to the house. Over the years, the door has deteriorated considerably. Tom restored it for us, even preserving the art glass. It is beautiful! His craftmanship and attention to detail gave us a door even better than we imagined. He completed the project on time and was very easy to work with. We are so proud of our beautiful door and love how it enhances the appearance of our home. We highly recommend Tom and Rhodes Woodsmith. ~ CB & JS
