A little about Dave.
Owner Dave F.
Born in 1959
I started out in Jr. High school in wood shop class back in 1972. That is when I
decided I would do something that involved working with my hands and wood.
I had two years of shop classes in Jr. High, four years of industrial
arts in High school, and two years at Grundy Area Vocation Center,
learning how to build houses in a class called Building Trades.
When I graduated from all of that, I worked at a large
cabinet shop in Will County for seventeen years.
I was their service manager and did all the touch-ups and adjustments on the
cabinets after the carpenters installed them. My job was also
to take all the complaints, and make the customer happy.
I remodeled kitchens & installed cabinets for two years in the evening for extra
money while I worked during the day at the cabinet shop.
I also attended classes to learn more about how to do Touch-Ups.
At the cabinet shop I worked mostly on new homes, but several of the homes
were lived in. I did approximately 16 service calls (homes) during
the day for the cabinet shop all over North Central Illinois.
After I touched up cabinets for the customer, I always had several customers
tell me that the work I did was so good, that they
wanted to know if I could look at something for them.
That is when I decided that there was a market for what I do & started my
I started my business in Channahon, Illinois, on January 1
& within 6 months I had to quit working at the cabinet shop.
I have been doing this ever since.
Most repairs involve complete refinishing, which I do very
well, but I also do touch-ups only if needed.
I stopped doing on-site work in 2012. I will bring the work to
my shop, which is at my home in Marseilles.
Estimates are free, but I do charge for pick-ups & deliveries.
