Tomasi was very knowledgeable and great to work with. He came up with stylish solutions as well as a great finished product. We had a fairly difficult space we were working with and a unique custom designed media center. It turned out beautifully, I would definitely use them again!

I enjoyed working with Chris of Tomasi Design and both our client and myself are very happy with the built-in cabinet he fabricated. I provided him with detailed CAD drawings and he produced 3D renderings based off those. The 3D renderings were super helpful in particular for my client. I can highly recommend Tomasi Design and will use them again.

We hired Chris to build a free-standing custom cabinet in mahogany (11’ long, 7’ high) and a 3’x11’ table top and matching bench tops out of walnut. We handled the entire process over email and phone up until delivery and installation of the finished items. Chris was a pleasure to deal with and did a spectacular job on all pieces. We couldn’t be happier with the results.

Chris Tomasi of Tomasi Design is a talented and skilled master craftsman. As a professional, Mr. Tomasi brings a high expectation not only for quality, but also for artistry.

In my 20 years of experience as a designer and working with contractors, Chris Tomasi stands as my top resource. Many of my projects being in the scope of fantasy environments require much more than carpentry skills. They require the imagination and creativity necessary to transform spaces from conceptual ideas into physical realities. For this level of vision, Chris stands at the top of his field.

Also, for installations designed specifically for use by children, durability and safety are key factors in my design decisions. With Chris’s high level of standards, I can assign a project with complete piece of mind.

Chris Tomasi built a beautiful round kitchen table for me. Chris worked with me closely to make sure all the details were in place. He was methodical and precise, and took all necessary steps to executed a beautifully crafted table. In addition, he was perfectly reliable, professional, all while being laid-back, super nice, and easy to talk with. I absolutely recommend him without hesitation.

Stefan Welter

 

Chris is very detailed oriented and a lot of fun to work with. I love the custom pullouts for all my shoes and the hidden compartment in the back of the open shelf area. As an Interior Designer, Tomasi Design will be my new go to Cabinet Maker.
Andrea Vollersen

 

Chris Tomasi was a delight to work with. Chris translated our bed room furniture needs and interests into a creative design exercise that produced a beautiful and useful Art Deco styled bed with storage and matching cantilevered night stands that fit perfectly into our floor space limitations. The quality of the furniture and the workmanship were exceptional. The hidden, under-bed, storage became the amazing equivalent of two, large, three-drawer dressers. Chris met all the project deadlines and he delivered and set up the furniture personally. Chris is more than a master craftsman, he’s a creative conceptualist, an artist, a superb communicator, and a good and honest businessman. We are thoroughly delighted with our unique bedroom set.
Jackson & Francesca

 

I provided Chris Tomasi with a basic design for a cabinet /bookshelf. Chris worked with me to refine details. He presenting me with a finished drawing and estimate. He was very helpful and easy to work with, explaining options for both design and production. The finished product is beautifully made. I am happy to recommend his work.

Tomasi Design is a preferred subcontractor for the GC who was responsible for the extensive remodeling of our fire-damaged home.

Chris Tomasi worked with us on the design and layout of cabinetry in the kitchen, pantry, living room, and bathrooms. The scope of the work was, therefore, considerable, requiring cabinetry designs for rooms with very different functions.

Chris constructed all of the cabinetry and then pretty much installed all of it himself, down to the placement of the knobs and pulls.

Well, let me just say that the quality of work was exceptional. The cabinets were wonderfully assembled, with the most advanced hardware. Chris ensured that the cabinets were flawlessly installed--even with the inevitable unevenness of walls and ceilings. He arranged for the cabinets to be spray painted, ensuring a superior finish for the wood.

I mean, all the cabinetry looks just grand. You could go over them with a fine tooth comb (if you were so inclined) and not find any imperfections. The cabinetry blends seamlessly with the counters, fixtures, wall
space and appliances; in a word, the cabinetry seems as if it has always been there. You have to remind yourself of the consummate skill required to yield this ‘natural’ appearance.

Chris Tomasi is a genuine craftsman, utterly meticulous and wholly committed to the client’s satisfaction.

Christy Vaile

 

Chris did a wide variety of projects for us in our remodel. He built cabinetry, custom railings for interior staircase, custom dining room table, custom coffee table, custom slab desk and cabinets, installed closet interior. Everything he did was done thoughtfully, cleanly, precisely, and was better than we expected. I couldn’t give him a higher recommendation.
Rich Gallen

 

Chris is terrific to work with and does beautiful, quality work. We are thrilled with our large built- in shelf/cabinet project that he designed and built from our rough sketch. He spent quality time working on the estimate with us to accommodate our budget and followed through on every detail in the promised time-frame. A fun, can-do attitude with exquisite taste.
Jane Kriss Studio

 

I am a general contractor in Marin and have worked closely with Chris since 2005 and I recommend him to all who ask me, “hey, do you know a great cabinet sub?” and of course I do. To start, to be an excellent cabinet maker/craftsman you must have talent and Chris is full of that quality. There is no substitute for talent and he brings all he has on every job from design (can do onsite sketches for you) to material selection, to fabrication and finally to installation. He brings it all and for a cost that I always thought was affordable and competitive for the perfect piece of cabinetry or millwork. Nobody does it better.

I highly recommend Tomasi Design for the collaboration, fabrication and installation of custom millwork and furniture. His work demonstrates great attention to detail and a very high standard of craftsmanship.

The work was intricate, but was accomplished timely, within budget and in a professional manner. Easy to work with (always find a solution when there are issues, specially on a custom project), get along with all, very organized and left the site clean. will use again.
Namir Faidi

 

Chris Tomasi & Tomasi Design are professional, reliable and one of the most talented woodworkers I have worked with in my 30 years of being a professional interior designer. I have given him challenges that his work as always exceeded beyond my wildest expectations. I would recommend him highly in all facets of a project from start to finish. The quality of craftsmanship, the technical knowledge of construction and the shear fun of working with someone who truly loves his craft, I can’t praise enough.
Lolli Design

 

Chris did an amazing job of customizing our beloved 1950’s built-in cabinet with a modern tv lift system. We gave him the difficult task of cramming the biggest tv we could find into a tiny, narrow cabinet. Then he encased the tv with a beautiful frame, which perfectly matches the original wood of the cabinet. He also updated the vintage speaker grill and thoughtfully repaired broken hinges. It was a very difficult project that required someone with strong technical skills, talent, and good taste. Chris is fast and affordable for the quality of work he produces. We will definitely be using Chris again for our kitchen and bathroom remodels, as well as some custom furniture pieces.
