Read what our many satisfied customers have to say about their Marin County and San Francisco custom furniture and cabinet projects with Tomasi Design.


A master craftsman

My wife and I are homeowners in the Country Club neighborhood in San Rafael. We recently engaged Chris Tomasi to re-do our cabinets in our kitchen and family room. Chris took on this formidable job and did a thoroughly professional job at a reasonable cost. He is a master craftsman and we couldn’t be happier with the finished product.

Chris makes very precise measurements and is able to be innovative when faced with an unusual problem. We had an ultra-narrow space for our kitchen garbage bags, and Chris devised an ingenious solution which gave us adequate space. He also faced some tricky hinge problems in a corner of the kitchen, which he also solved to our satisfaction.

Chris was attentive to our concerns and brilliant in the execution of his tasks. We recommend him highly.

Ahead of schedule, right on budget

I had the pleasure of working with Chris Tomasi during my bedroom, master bath and dressing rooms remodel. He took my crude drawings and made them an elegant reality. His craftsmanship and attention to detail were evident in the finished project.

He always seemed to complete the pieces ahead of schedule and right on budget, and addressed any of my concerns and wishes. He also built a complicated curved molding for a staircase that had been left undone by the previous owners, probably because it was either too complicated or expensive to do correctly. Voila! It is perfect.

Looking forward to working with Chris in the future and would heartily recommend his beautiful work.

Solutions for previous construction issues

Chris was a genius when it came to our remodeling project. He deftly solved our finishing details of crown and base moldings, and came up with various tasteful solutions to dilemmas created from previous construction.

He designed and created an absolutely perfect built-in bookcase/entertainment center cabinetry that fit our space and equipment needs. All projects were completed quickly and professionally with the skills of a fine woodworking master. Absolute delight to work with!!

Value for the money spent

After living with furniture that just did not meet our needs, we finally decided that in order to get efficiency and comfort we would have to have the cabinetry in our home office custom built. We interviewed three cabinet makers; two were very similar in price, and the third was much higher.

We decided on Chris Tomasi for a number of reasons. First, he is a one-man operation who designs, builds and installs all of his creations. The others were companies that would have one person or team design the project, another build it and a third install it. We felt that it would be better and easier to work with one person than several.

Second, he was more than willing to listen to and incorporate our ideas; and third, he is very low key and although quite an artist, not a “temperamental” artist.

Chris worked with us on the design, made suggestions and sent us off to look at and choose the wood we wanted. He stuck to the proposed schedule and was flexible when we had to delay the installation because of house guests.

The quality of the workmanship in our cabinetry is excellent and all in all, we are very satisfied with the finished product and feel that we definitely got value for the money spent. We recommend, without hesitation, Tomasi Design for any custom cabinetry project.
