Good morning, Jane and Team!

 Please forgive my tardiness in expressing our gratitude and sending pictures of our new table! We have just gotten our sunroom extension completed and everything put back in place from the construction.

 Our new table is absolutely stunning!  It fits our room perfectly, and our new chairs match and fit the scale of the table.  We have already eaten at it twice since we received it!  Thank-you again for a wonderful design experience, the ability to match the stain color to our chairs, and the exceeding of our expectations!  We truly have an heirloom table that will be used and loved for generations to come!

Thanks again!

Lu Lockwood and Vince Isaacson

Hi Barbara:

We received our tables last Thursday and they are beautiful. WOW!!! We are really pleased with them and they became family heirlooms upon delivery. Please thank all who worked on them, their work product is excellent. Had a family open house this week end and the star of the party was the big table. We sat 8, very comfortably for our first big dinner.  Many Thanks to all…… you for all your hand holding, and the workshop for their beautiful work.

Regards to all,

Sharie C.

Hi Jane! I loooooooove the table. It’s incredible! I haven’t had pro photos taken yet because I’m still in the process of decorating. Waiting on some more built-ins, custom furniture, etc. I’m hoping to pull it all together soon! Here’s a link on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/meaghanbmurphy/

I had promised to send you a picture of our wonderful table with lazy Susan in our 1820’s summer kitchen. We adore our table and it is admired by all who sit around it. Thanks!

Hi Jane and Barb,

Chairs arrived this morning and they are perfect.  Attached are some pictures but the morning light is so bright that I can’t get shots that show the color coordination between the chairs and the table.  Did my best.  What the pictures miss is that the driftwood shade pulls out  the splattered blue color in the table so the chairs really complement the table.  The chair size is perfect as well. 

Thank you so much for the outstanding craftsmanship and customer service. Also, the young men that delivered the chairs couldn’t have been nicer and were very personable and conscientious.

Hi Jane,

They just delivered our table and we are thrilled! It is beautiful and fits the space perfectly. I’m sending these quick shots but will send better pictures once we get the window seat cushion and pillows made.Thanks again! The entire process was so enjoyable and effortless and we got exactly what we wanted!

Take care,

David and Julie Van Scott

Hi Jane,

I forgot to pass this along to you yesterday. When the delivery men were assembling the table, one of them said “Is this table new or is it an antique”. I told him it was a new table. I thought that was quite a testament to the skill of your craftspeople that, by using reclaimed materials and finishing them in such a fashion, they can create a piece that has the quality and durability of something new but make it have a well preserved older look, which was exactly what we were looking for.

Thanks again for a job very well done!

I am in love….with my new kitchen table!! I cannot say enough about the entire process with Jodi and everyone at ecustomfinishes!!

I had lived with my old table for 15 years and although beautiful, it never felt quite right to me. I explained my vision to Jodi over the phone and she completely understood what I was looking for. I have to say, I was a bit nervous ordering such an important piece of furniture sight unseen. I had being doing research on what I wanted for such a long period of time, I was hesitant to actually pull the plug. But I have to say, just a phone conversation with Jodi put me at ease and I had complete trust in her from the get-go. Although over an hour away, she recommended that I make the trip up to see them and really get a sense of what they did and what I had for options. She took so much time with me, was extremely patient and I felt even more comfortable with my decision when I left. Jodi truly treated this piece as if it was her own and the result showed it!! It is EXACTLY what I had hoped for and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much Jodi, Barb and Jane for making my family a table that we will enjoy for many years to come!

I would highly recommend ecustomfinishes! Not only for quality of product, but the best customer service I have ever experienced!!


Thanks again for everything!!

“At last we have some decent images of the completed bar and restaurant.  Tanner Smith’s 204 W 55thStreet, Manhattan.  Thank you for very much for the wonderful service you provided as well as for the beautiful furniture.  Please share my thanks with your team.”

 Very best regards,    Aaron,   NYC

Jane, I hope you understand that having a custom solid pine dining table built by a firm whose work I have never seen is a major risk. This was not a cheap endeavor but I am very pleased with what you’ve been able to achieve with the design that I originally sent you and the color I specified. You guys are amazing and I mean that. My girlfriend was very skeptical of having a table made online, she thought I was crazy! Well done Jane.

Thanks again,

Darren- NYC

“Hi Jane,

   It was my plan to email you first thing this morning, but work and meetings got in the way — so, finally, now I can write. We       want you to know that we are absolutely thrilled with the table, chairs and cabinet that arrived yesterday!!  The workmanship, the wood, and the design features are all so beautiful and elegant.  We are so proud to have them in our home.  Once we have figured out how to get the old table out of the dining room (our mechanical engineer brother-in-law will be involved in that step) and a picture re-hung above the new cabinet, we will send pictures.

   Jane, again, you were really terrific to work with, and from start-to-finish our work with you has been such a pleasure (and that’s going back to the creation of our perfect  kitchen table/island last winter).  Thank you so very much, to you and to your team.  I don’t know of any more furniture requirements we have right now, but you will be first on the list when we do, and we’ve already given out your name several times, and expect to do much more of that.”    Sally and Charlie W.    Mass.

  • Barb,

    The table was delivered this morning, it’s great, just what we were looking for. This is the type table that you should crawl under during a hurricane, God forbid. Construction is out of this world, the finish is perfect.You folks did a great job, worth every penny.The folks from TLC Delivery were super, polite, courteous, knowledgeable and

    cooperative.I’m sure that when I run into folks interested in tables of this type, Lake & Mountain will be my advise.Once again, Thanks for your performance in the provision of the table.

    Paul A.  ,   Lancaster, NY



    Hello Jane-

    We absolutely love the dining room table.  I want to tell you how great it was working with you and your team.  You were so patient and very helpful throughout the entire custom process.  I have already recommended you to another client.  I would be happy to recommend or review your company if you ever need!

    Thank you again.

      Our table was delivered today. We love it! We can’t think of a single thing we’d want different. Thanks for everything!

    • Landy Plante Interiors,

      The table is perfect! We had friends over for dinner that night. Thank you again for a beautiful table!

    • Jennifer Coye,

      Just wanted to let you know that everyone has raved about the table. My husband loves it — he’s totally enamored of the extensions! It looks great in our house, and is the perfect gathering spot for friends and family. thanks again,

    • Ann

      The table is absolutely stunning. John keeps saying “I am marveling at the transformation”. We had a lovely dinner for two last night, have the Brady Bunch on Thursday, and now we have ABC News film makers coming for dinner next Friday. The timing couldn’t be better and we are so pleased. Pictures forthcoming 🙂

    • Chantal R.

      Excellent! By the way you are so helpful and responsive. Its appreciated and I will definitely make it known in our circles.

    • Diana Kennedy

      It took a little while to receive my photos, but I wanted to pass along the finished design for the Sanchez dining room. The family is so happy with their table and it looks beautiful in the room! I look forward to working with you again in the future. Happy New Year and I wish you a prosperous 2013!

    • Rachel Sarantopoulos

      In this day and age, it is a rare and wonderful thing to have someone so willing to accommodate our time-pressed schedule. It made a world of difference to my father. I am so glad he was able to have his questions answered, and see the beautiful old oak wood for himself. Quite frankly, it is so much nicer than I ever envisioned…I know they will be heirloom pieces, which I will use with my family for many years to come. Thank you for enabling us to host those future family gatherings in such an elegant fashion.. Your genuine warmth, compassionate accommodation of our pressing schedule and your graciousness has made a very difficult time much less so. Rest assured, I will not forget it. Your tables will come highly recommended by me, and I will be sure to spread the word far and wide.

    • Holli K.

      The table arrived this morning and is absolutely perfect. Easy to put together, HEAVY, gorgeous and shipped excellently. Thank you

    • Stacey H,
      Estes Park, CO

      We can’t thank you and the entire group there for handling our order so quickly and with such tremendous customer service. You really made our selection an easy one, and we couldn’t be more pleased with our entire experience. Please do not ever hesitate to use us a references should any of your customers have questions about the kind of service you provide to your clients. Thanks again.

    • Matt D.,
      New Suffolk, NY

      The tables and chairs arrived today and they are fantastic!!! Can’t say enough about the trestle table. It’s just what my wife and I wanted… It has been a pleasure dealing with you, and I will try to emulate your service at my own business.

    • Adrienne, Concord Mass

      We love the huntsboard. It came out awesome and is perfect for the space. I’ll definitely be in touch for future pieces.

    • Shawn & Judith Bills

      My wife and I love our new hutch we purchased yesterday. It was very nice meeting you in person after many times talking on the phone. I also wanted to thank again the two young men that help load it and strap it in my truck they were great to talk to and they also did a beautiful job on the finish on the hutch.

    • Mary Lee Dunn,
      New Hartford, CT

      I love the portrait and have already sent your web address off to friends. Thanks also for your prompt service it gave me plenty of time to get it framed before the holidays! Thank you so much, tell George he did a fantastic job!

    • Deb,

      I’m very much in love with my canopy bed, and have now seen it in commercials and in catalogs (Crate and Barrel) although none are as beautiful and unique. I’d like to have you make a bed side table for me and have attached a picture. My best

    • Judy C.,  Ct.

      I ADORE it!!! Can’t believe how PERFECT it is!…You are the best! I wish you all continued success with your brilliant niche in a mostly boring furniture industry. Everyone at E Custom is such a delight to work with. You, Barbara, Brad and George were so patient with this slightly crazy person whose concept was out of the box. Jane, you really understood my vision and translated that into the perfect expression. I thank you so much for such a special experience. I feel like I have discovered a new family of friends. And, how interesting that we have both moved from similar professional backgrounds to other forms of expression!! My sincerest appreciation

    •  Jill Collier Indyk,
      East Hampton, Long Island

      It’s here! And I love it. It’s color is the perfect match for my Syrian antique chest and ALL the elements you helped me resolve: oak vs pine, wide planks, breadboard ends, especially the legs, just have it fit in that space like it’s meant to be. The extensions are so beautifully executed…the craftsmanship of all of it are beautifully detailed. Who’d have thought I’d have found my table on line. Without your help it wouldn’t have happened.

    • Ginger Finelli

      I didn’t get a chance to speak with you since our table was delivered. I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you how much we love the final product. The table and chairs are beautiful and we get compliment after complement on the set. In addition, you were amazing to work with. Thank you for being so patient and understanding and helping us pick out exactly what we wanted. I will refer you to anyone in the market and I hope to do business with you again in the future, I’m still hoping to have a sideboard made to match the table!

    • Michelle Murray,
      Philadelphia, PA

      I was totally speechless when the table was delivered!!!! I’m really happy with the way it turned out. It is everything I wanted and more. Thank you for all your help. I’ve never seen such a beautiful piece of furniture!!

    • Darren ,

      it’s just awesome. The color is spot on and I can see a real nice texture to the wood…not too rough…perfect. I hope you understand that having a custom table built by a firm whose work I have never seen is a major risk. This was not a cheap endeavor but I am very pleased with what you’ve been able to achieve with the design that I originally sent you and the color I specified. You guys are amazing and I mean that. My girlfriend was very skeptical of having a table made online, she thought I was crazy! Well done Jane.

    • Ryan,
      Rye, NH

      My mother is an interior designer and gets a lot of business in Nantucket…she thought that given the price I paid for the furniture it wouldn’t be very good…[She’s never one to hold back her thoughts..] When it arrived she was shocked to see how good the quality is and plans to start using you as a resource herself. She too thinks it looks absolutely stunning. Can’t tell you how thrilled I am.

    • Andrea B,
      Bayhead, NJ

      The table is even more beautiful than in the photos you sent. The wood top (2″) was the right depth, the wood pieces and finish are incredible. It fits perfectly! And everyone who sees it raves over it. Thank you again for all your advice and guidance. We are already looking forward to our first meal on it.

  • Peter,
    Cape Cod

    I need to tell you that I am loving the table more every day, everyone really did a beautiful job with it so please extend my thanks all around. I am going to send you some pictures in the next few days. May be looking around for a coffee table next fall (given that I can find a new sofa) so you’ll be hearing from me rest assured! If you’re ever in the Falmouth area, look me up at The Glass Onion. Pics on the way!

  • Kathleen,

    We absolutely love, love our dining set. Thank you so much for a beautiful job!!

  • Kathy Spier,
    Weston, MA

    I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how beautiful the table and chairs are! The table is gorgeous, and is the perfect size for the kitchen. The chairs came out beautifully as well. Jim, Jamie and I are all delighted. Thanks again! You all did a great job, and I am very pleased.

  • Cathy U.,
    Norwalk, CT

    I am in love with my table!! Your company did a top notch job and we have a family heirloom in our home now. Thank you so very much for all of your help. The wait was well worth it.

  • Lisa Green,

    Love, love, love the table. it is so perfect. your delivery guys were wonderful and we tipped them in homemade cookies. think it took them by surprise. thank you so much. don’t be surprised if you hear from our neighbor, he LOVED the table, too. thank you so much.

  • Shannon Lurkins,

    OMG! How beautiful is my island workstation! My kids (adult kids) love it! My entire family will love this, and my kitchen reveal is going down. I can’t thank you all enough.

  • Bobbie T.,

    You have has been outstanding and your services and kindness has been greatly appreciated. Your services will be well recommended! Here are a few pictures 🙂

  • Sue C,

    I am sending some photos along of the beautiful table with chairs and the two counter chairs I recently purchased from you. I love it!!! My kitchen looks absolutely beautiful with these additions. I love the color of the stained wood and the two tone black with the fruitwood stain. They are very nice and fit perfect in the counter space. Thank you for working with me to develop this beautiful set.

  • Megan

    Chris and I want you to know that the table exceeds our expectations. We are so pleased. When I used that exact quote of exceeding my expectations to my mother she said “Megan nothing ever exceeds your expectations.” So that should tell you how much we love it. The movers were fantastic, thank you for recommending them. We could not be happier!

  • Glenn,

    I just wanted to write and let you know how very pleased we are with our new table and chairs. They arrived in perfect condition. They are even more beautiful than we expected! I can’t believe how solid they are. The attention to detail and quality craftsmanship is evident in every piece. We look forward to recommending your custom work to everyone we know. Thank you!

  • Brenda H.,
    Falmouth, MA

    I can’t thank you enough for the magnificent outcome of our custom table. The workmanship is superb and the details and color perfect. Jane, you help and support were greatly appreciated as well as overall reliability. We are looking forward to many years of enjoying our trestle table.

  • Pat O’Shea

    I just wanted to let you know we are very happy with the table and server. The pieces are beautiful, just like you said. The wood is gorgeous and the workmanship is great!

  • Gary

    Thanks for all of your help on this. I appreciate your efforts and cooperation in getting it right and getting it here on time. It has been great working with you and would recommend you and your company anytime.

  • Stephanie Broome,

    We just had our first family meal at the table. It is just AMAZING! LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! Looking forward to having an exciting weekend with family and friends. I have a feeling someone will be wanting a table like mine! 🙂 I hope to give you some referrals.

  • Doreen & Jerry Walsh,

      Thank you for our unbelievable table – our whole family came over today and raved about it.We will definitely call you within the next couple of months in regards to our hutch. Thanks again

  • Cheryl

    Thank you! FYI, over the last 8 months during our major home renovation, I’ve done business with dozens of companies. Now that the end is near, I must say your team ranks up there in my top 3 for customer service. I’m sure when we see the table, we will be equally pleased with the quality and workmanship that used to be identified in the phrase “MADE IN AMERICA”! I am hoping to bring this message, our home and your table to the attention of the folks at Southern Living! Many thanks,

  • The Churches,
    N. Dakota

    “We love it! It looks like it should have been there all along… We really do eat 3 meals a day as a family. It is perfect for meals, homeschooling, playing games, or for a little boy to hide under when he wants some peace and security. Pictures of the table are attached, as promised. Thanks again for all your work.” Pt 2 – I wanted to follow up with a blog article I wrote about our new table and what it means to our family – http://the-churches.blogspot.com/2012/05/heirloom-table_08.html

  • Julia M.

    Thank you so much for our beautiful table! Your service has been phenomenal, between encouraging my design ideas, going out of your way to make the purchasing process enjoyable and convenient, and being so understanding about my last minute changes. I love your showroom/factory – it is truly an inspiring place to visit – not only because it is filled with such wonderfully finished furniture, but because of your friendly and totally engaged service. Thanks a million! I can’t wait to bring future clients to you.

  • David Dicenzo,
    Haverhill, NH

    I wanted to let you know that I have never seen such a beautiful piece of furniture in my life! My wife and I are blown away, we truly are. You and your team were such a pleasure to work with and we could not be happier. We will recommend to to our friends and do not hesitate to call if you ever are in need of a referral. Thank you so much, you guys are great!

  • Kate Phillips Connolly

    The hunt board arrived last night, safe and sound- and fantastic! It is wonderful. In my most nit-picky mood I couldn’t find a fault: this is a rare example of something being even better than it looked online (and you can imagine the grief I got for buying furniture off the internet, from a unfamiliar company, without even seeing it). The corners are just the way I like them. The drawers are open and close smoothly: tight enough that they don’t wobble, but loose enough that they glide open. The wood is beautifully finished, and cuts the difference between highly polished formal and rustic farmhouse furniture perfectly. It does in fact look like something that has been around for a while- in a good way.

  • John M,

    The tabletop and bench looks great, thank you so much for your attention and help!!! We could not be happier

  • Judy Dwyer,

    From letter at top of page “Dear Jane, Barbara, Brad and George, What a wonderful adventuresome journey! I had nearly given up on my attempt to find a partner in creating a funky expression of the table I had in mind! But, you guys got it-right from the start. Although you must have thought I was nuts, you worked with me (or allowed me to work with you) to resurrect wonderful old wood and infuse it with a fanciful new life. How fortunate I as to discover E-Custom Finishes! You offer a brilliant niche in the furniture market. I am so delighted and proud to be one of your customers; and, I am singing your praises to everyone/everywhere I go. What a pleasure to work with such talented artists as Brad and George while having such faith and confidence in your business ethic! You are such a wonderful professional family and delightful people. You were so gracious..and how I’ll miss you. I need a new project! Leo was most impressed too. Than you for such a wonderful and unique adventure. Sincerest appreciation,

  • Jason,
    Portland, Indiana

    I received the chairs last night. The pictures online sold me, but to see and feel the beauty that radiates from each of these chairs is breathtaking. They are truly immaculate. My wife was blown away. Thank you so much!! Thanks again and WOW, I’m totally blown away.

    LETTER TO CHRONICLE BY CLIENT says: From: Carole Misticawi To: ‘chronicle@TheBostonChannel.com’ Subject: Possible Show Topic… Hello: I am constantly shopping for the best finds and wanted to share my experience with eCustom Finishes, a local business in Harvard MA. Though I have watched Chronicle segments focusing on “made local, or bargain hunting,” I am hoping that you may find an angle for this piece in one of your future segments. They have a wonderful story to tell which I am confident would be highly informative yet entertaining to your viewers. eCustom Finishes is both a workshop and a retail location of custom furniture. The highlights of this experience is that it enables customers to speak with the workshop directly to create the custom piece of furniture that you want in various designs, and stains. With the talent of their resident artist, they will also fuse artwork and furniture to create the perfect piece for your home. When touring the workshop last week, I was in awe when the owner Jane showed me a dresser with a painted picture which depicted a Greek Legend on the dresser. It only made me think of all the possibilities that I could have created. I am in the process of ordering some custom pieces myself which won’t break the bank! Overall, here are the highlights of this workshop: local business, customized pieces, hands-on opportunity to tour the workshop and develop the perfect piece, below retail prices, owner’s interesting story of transferring out from the business world to take a chance at this business, opportunity to fuse custom artwork tailored to whatever you want. The following is a link to their web site: https://www.ecustomfinishes.com/index.php Regards, Carole M.
