Review by Pattie M. Columbia Station,Ohio
We were very pleased with the outstanding craftsmanship Scot and his crew did with our 4 heirloom pieces. (Carved Sofa, Love seat and Chairs)They looked as if my grandma had just bought them. The care given to every detail of both the wood refinishing and the upholstery was as if these pieces were Scot's personal pieces. Thank you Scot. Looking forward as we have more chairs and furniture for your craft for the future....Pattie M.

Hi there Scot, it's Ken  from Parma, you guys really did a wonderful job on the bedroom set. It has not looked so good since new over 30 years ago. It really had all of its nicks and dings and cracks and I never thought it could look like that again. you are very meticulous and detailed oriented and I really appreciate that as I can see you really take care of your customers. I am certainly going to recommend you to friends and family of mine and will be doing more business with you. I will call you and looking forward to you doing my chair upholstery. I also wanted to comment that it was great you completed everything in a timely manner with my calendar and timeline...thank you again

Review by Art and Pam M. Chagrin Falls,Ohio
We recently decided to remodel our kitchen and lighten up our dark wood stained kitchen cabinets. The existing cabinetry was in excellent shape and terrific quality with a lot of detail and crown molding. The thought of tearing it out was more than we wanted to take on. I had heard about The Finish Smith versus replacing cabinetry. I met with Scot and decided his service was ideal for what we were looking for. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and focus to ensure we were receiving the end result we were searching for. In addition to the terrific service & finished product, he was also able to complete the project early and at a cost savings versus a traditional remodel. We are very happy we chose The Finish Smith for our project.

Good morning Scot, Just calling to say I am amazed to see what you did with our leather sofa. From picking it up, helping with the material choice which I love, to the new padding, look, feel and foam it's really amazing to see the transformation. My husband loves it and we really appreciate a great idea  that you made the special arm covers to protect it, they look great. We have decided that we want you to do our other chair to match now along with my mothers dining room. Thank you and see you soon...

Review by Todd C. Golf Pro. Avon, Ohio
Good day, we started our process searching for the right contractor with Home Advisor to refinish and renovate our kitchen. After all of the estimates and then getting a call from Scot at Finishsmith, then meeting with Scot, we knew from that moment, we were gonna go with his company. Scot was very detailed and very professional. from start to finish. He explained how the entire job would get done. Everything he promised, FinishSmith delivered. They started by picking up the doors and drawers to our cabinets while getting measurements for everything else. They came back and completely refinished our kitchen cabinets, stair railings, banister post and hand rail all of the wood trim around all of our doors and windows, and also fabricated new granite counter tops, with new lights, sink and stove top. Again the job was done exactly the way he explained it to us and beautifully. If we ever need anything else done, we not hesitate to call Scot and his crew with Finishsmith. Thank you...Todd

Review by Joe B. in Willoughby, OH.
Hey Scot, this is Joe in Willoughby, I just wanted to call and thank you again for the fantastic job you did with our kitchen cabinets. You basically took our 1950's style kitchen with the lightly stained wood cabinets and transformed them into a modern kitchen. It's actually the first thing you see when you walk into our home from the side door and everybody that walks in here just comments on how fabulous our kitchen looks. The other thing i wanted to share with you is how much we appreciate your services. Over the Christmas holiday, one of our guests gouged one of our doors along with the drawers getting scratched as we gave you a call, you came out, took a look at them stating you could fix them, we got them back today and they look great...just like new. Also the price was right as you took care of us at no extra charge. If you have any customers that need a reference in regard to what you do and how you handle your work along with you customers, please have them call....thank you again...Joe

Hi, just a quick note, after getting my delivery today, the refinish work on my dinette set is superb. it's beautiful! The dinette chairs were also upholstered and switched over from rushing to upholstery and it adds so much to the overall look and comfort.The color of every thing is exactly what I wanted as the color of upholstery coordinates so well with the soft washed look. I just want to say that Scot was so easy to work with, his service was superb and always made sure I was notified and satisfied every step of the way. I would recommend their work to anybody looking at having refinishing and or upholstery done. They are the greatest...thank you

I’d like to send some deserved praise to Scot Chatron and his group at FinishSmith. We contacted Scot about restoring a heirloom china cabinet that has been in our family for about 100 years. It was in pretty rough shape. Scott and his crew did an amazing job restoring this priceless heirloom to it’s original charm and beauty. When he first unveiled the chest in my home a huge smile took over my face. It was perfect! We’ve already engaged FinishSmith with another heirloom piece for restoration. My wife and I couldn’t be happier. Tim and Marguerite L

I wanted to share with everyone, that when Finishsmith dropped off my desk, it is is far more than I expected. It is Beautiful!!! Scot and his assistant went far beyond what was needed to take the time to disassemble parts of the desk and also remove my door and all of the trim from around the doorway to be able to get the desk into my office. Yes, they were able to get it into the room!!!! Extremely professional and left everything clean and straight before leaving. I look forward to having additional pieces done by Finishsmith. I also wanted to add how impressed I was with Scot's knowledge about my desk, when it was built, the style, how it was made along with the years and what the approximate value was at pick up and value when it was refinished. I was quite amazed learning about the history of my desk and again just wanted to share a big thanks!!!! Ellen

I was invited in to see other kitchen work they were doing and was very impressed.

 Good Morning -I want to thank you for the refinishing and repair of the secretary and chair you completed for me recently.
The secretary was very old and in terrible shape. The chair had a broken arm, several coats of varnish and a ratty seat cushion.
The secretary is just gorgeous and you were able to repair the cracked and chipped areas without losing the character of a very aged piece of furniture. And the finish stays true to original finish and is very rich.
The chair looks fantastic with the new chair cushion and the arm repair was so well done it's not even visible. The removal of all the layers of varnish has really improved the look of chair and it's no longer "sticky" to the touch.
I will most definitely share these pieces with friends and recommend you to all.

I contacted Scot at FinishSmith last year for the first time right before the holidays looking for my dining room chairs to be fixed and refinished. Scot came out and gave me the estimate and took the chairs with him, promising delivery by Thanksgiving and sure enough came through in flying colors. My family could not believe how nice they came out. Scot took my antique rocker with him that same day as it was in need of major repair and restoration. After some time, he brought my rocker back and I could not believe my eyes. Wow! Amazing! Well, he also gave me a quote when delivering that rocker on my chair and sofa I purchased over 20 years ago from Sedlack Interiors. We arranged a pick up and I supplied the material as my sister is a decorator. That same chair came back a few weeks later and again, I could not believe how beautiful it is. This brings me current, which is why I have shared all of this, as Scot had picked up my sofa a few weeks ago and brought it back to me today, and honestly, it is nicer than the day I bought it from Sedlack. It sits better, and looks better and I wanted to say, if you are looking for someone to do any of your refinishing and upholstery work, you just found your company. I highly recommend FinishSmith & Scot to get the job done right. Thank you.....

We have had several pieces of furniture refinished by Finish Smith and have been totally delighted with them all. I trusted Scot with furniture that my grandfather made back in the 1930-1940 era, mostly walnut that he cut and dried himself. They are all special pieces that will be in the family for generations to come. We were especially happy with the large dining room table that seats 12, a one of a kind table with two pull out extension leafs. It had been refinished two other times by other companies, the WRONG way and the finish was peeling and cracking. Now that Finishsmith has done it right, it is absolutely stunning!

Their ReviewScot and his company did extremely professional work and treated us as valued customers from the first phone conversation to the delivery of the product. It took 16 weeks to complete the project which we were well aware of from the beginning. I never imagined this antique upholstered oak arm chair of close to hundred years old could and would look so awesome!! When I saw it , I almost cried. The chair looked as if just came out of the showroom. I am so grateful to Scot and his company for the most excellent craftsmanship on this piece of furniture. I have a desk from my grandmother and possibly a cedar chest from my mother that I am considering have them refinish in the next year. Scot and I have already discussed the refinishing of the desk and the cost in the near future. I would recommend them if you have a furniture repair, refinishing, or re upholstery project. It may take a little while, but it is certainly well worth the wait!!!

Well, amazed is an under statement! What we expected and what the final results were was a total transformation. We could not believe our eyes when the plastic protection was removed and we were invited in to see our new cabinets. Scot and his crew started at 8:30 am and after protecting our floors and walls, Finishsmith completely changed our kitchen cabinets from an old fashioned dingy 80's oak color to a modern off white all in one day! We proceeded with new granite counter tops and our kitchen was transformed and it was like we just installed a new kitchen. Our hat's off to the crew...Thank you....

 Hi Scot:
I've attached a recommendation and review of our couch re upholstery. When our kids were here for Christmas, they all approved--and they are a critical and discerning bunch! Thanks for your work and for managing to complete the job well before Christmas! 
After thirty years of heavy use (four children, who knows how many dogs and cats!), we faced the decision that many have to make, whether or not to buy a new couch or have the old one reupholstered. It’s a typical dilemma because the cost differential seems almost insignificant. But we had to factor in that we have always loved the couch, it has been a steady part of our living room décor for nearly the lifetimes of our kids (at least), and it was originally a very good piece.

After some research into the best firm with the strongest recommendations in the area, we decided to go with Finishsmith. It was the right decision from the outset. As is often the case with work of this sort, we wanted it to be done before the holidays—as does everyone else! Scot Chatron promised us that it could be done (we discerned no crossed fingers or sly winks) and, with time to spare, he and his people had removed it from our living room, redid it, and returned it. Our faith in American workmanship is restored.

The couch “looks like new,” which I realize sounds like a cliché, but it really does. We were given a book of fabric samples to choose from (one, by then way, of many that are available from them), as well as the key to the all important information on what the various codes signified as to wear and durability. It is daunting to find just the right covering; when we bought the couch in the 1980s we took it from the floor. No choices then. On his first visit to our house, Scot understood our needs and provided what proved to be the best selection of fabrics for us to choose from. 

Bottom line: the couch has been beautifully rebuilt and reupholstered. It is as handsome as the one we originally bought, with the added advantage that it is exactly the couch we had always had and wanted! We are very happy that we decided for the remake and are completely satisfied with the work of Finishsmith.
Happy New Year!

Review: Had an antique chair and ottoman upholstered. Scott said it would take 4 to 8 weeks. When he called 3 and 1/2 weeks and said it was done we were shocked! Absolutely beautiful, quality craftsmanship! Beautiful job! Pleasure to do business with and would highly recommend to all! This is a family heirloom and will now be around for more generations to enjoy! Thank you Scot!

Review: Scot, the chest is absolutely gorgeous. My husband added beautiful antique-looking knobs and it looks beautiful. You did a wonderful job making my grandmother's old chest beautiful again..My kids love it to. Feel free to use me as a reference although your artistry speaks for itself.

Comments: The quality of the work was superb. My dining room table looks like new. Scott was courteous and professional. I didn't do any price comparisons, but I suspect Scott's was on the high end, but well worth it, probably because of the high caliber of his work and thus the high demand for it.

Comments: My cabinets look beautiful. The result exceeded my expectations. Took a bit of time but I was made fully aware of the timeline at the outset and Scott and his support staff stayed in touch with me throughout. Very professional. Worth the expense given the cost of new cabinets.
