My client Margo Baxley had her home remodeled in 2006, with all new cabinetry custom made by a cabinet shop, she wanted me to finish all the woodwork as she had been so pleased with my work before.  All the pieces were hand finished and hand-rubbed in the workshop,  the finish consisted of sealer coats, fine sanding, and then satin lacquer coats applied, hand rubbed and lemon oiled, reassembled and installed.  The client wrote this letter for me:
