Testimonials

My wife and I were interested in a custom reclaimed oak table and Saltwoods delivered. Dan was friendly, easy-going, and very accommodating to our design choices and changes along the way. He walked us through the trade-offs between different design choices and even after placing our initial order was able to update our design before construction began. The whole process was smooth and easy. I would highly recommend Saltwoods to others for their custom table / chair needs.

I received my new table last week and it is beautiful. It is well made, sturdy and I love the way it looks in my home. Dan was responsive to calls and emails, and I found him very easy to work with. The website has an "Info & Ordering" tab that contains a lot of helpful information.

We contacted Saltwoods about producing a custom sofa table to be used in our living room. I could not have had a better experience. Dan was very helpful and laid back while he explained all the options. We were extremely impressed with the quality and craftmenship of the table. We love it and would recommend Saltwoods to anyone!!

Dan was great to work with to bring our custom table idea to life. He was as passionate as we were about bringing our vision of a monster 72"x72" table together to host our family gatherings. The table is beautiful reclaimed oak. We couldn't be happier with the finished product!

We found Saltwoods online when looking for a reclaimed table that could be custom built for the banquette area for our newly remodeled kitchen. Dan was a delight to work with as we talked to him about the design and size of the table. It fits the area perfectly and is the item we receive the most compliments about in our "rustic glam" kitchen. While the table is not inexpensive, it is high quality craftsmanship and is a very unique piece of furniture that will become a fixture of our family for many years to come. The price was also in line with other companies that do custom tables. We truly love it.

I found Saltwoods online while researching authentic New England farmhouse tables, which are very hard to find in the SF Bay Area. I am from New England, and when I found Saltwoods, I knew that I had found the right place. Dan and I started to discuss what kind of table I was looking for, the style, the size, the color, down to every detail. He was very patient, and kept in touch with me throughout the whole project. The delivery service that he used to get my table to Ca. was top notch. The table arrived in perfect condition, and it is a craftsman's dream, just absolutely stunning! We are moving with it into a new house. The first toast that we will make at the table will be to Dan and his team at Saltwoods for making our beautiful family heirloom! http://saltwoods.com/shop/boxberry-white-oak/ Thank you so much Dan and best wishes for many years of continued success.

"Every once in awhile you end up purchasing an item that just exceeds expectations and brings so much joy you can't stop talking about it. Our newly delivered custom built farm table made out of 220 year old reclaimed oak by Dan, owner of Saltwoods is one of those possessions. We had been casually looking for a large dining room table for a couple of years and heard about Saltwoods right in our back yard. We checked out his shop in mid January and after a couple more visits, we finalized our decision to proceed with this purchase. Dan loves his work and his passion for his work sings through his craftsmanship. We found him to be a good listener, knowledgeable, accessible, and responsive to our inquiries. Dan kept to his timeline and personally delivered and set-up the piece with his lovely wife. My wife and I couldn't be happier and still can't stop talking about our new table which we hope will bless many people."

After much research of the vintage furniture market, I commissioned Dan and the Saltwoods team to produce a custom reclaimed dining table and matching bench for my home. I knew I was in good hands when meeting with Dan to design our project; his passion for and confidence in his craft is apparent from day one and remains through delivery and installation. Communication flowed freely from the Saltwoods team, I was never left in the dark about where we stood, and the final product is an amazing feat of craftsmanship. I plan to return to Saltwoods in the future and would highly recommend them for any custom furniture project.

We worked with Saltwoods to design a custom dining table for our home. We wanted something that would be highly functional but also beautiful and sophisticated. Saltwoods helped us understand all the different options for materials and finish, and we ended up with a beautiful walnut table that met all of our specifications. We are thrilled with the result and have received many compliments when we have people over for family gatherings and dinner parties. The table is also extremely well built and is durable enough to withstand three young children (and all their art projects). The Saltwoods team provided excellent service and came back to make minor modifications as needed to achieve the end result we desired. Working with local craftsmen who take pride in their work makes all the difference!

I ordered a custom dining table and bench from Saltwoods and they came out beautifully. They were both made primarily from reclaimed wood and made exactly to my specifications. Dan at Saltwoods was very knowledgeable and low-pressure, and was able to show me samples of his previous work (both in person at his workshop and with photographs). He was easy to work with and very communicative by email, which I appreciated. The table and bench came out great, and we're very pleased with them. The whole process took about 6 weeks between our first meeting and delivery of the furniture.

Dan Crossman and his team of designers / craftsmen custom made a beautiful table for us. We are so pleased with the results and know it will a last us many many years. Dan was professional and courteous and delivered our table well before the promised date. Highly recommended.

Where to begin? Dan of Saltwoods worked with us to design our table, patiently dealing with our indecision (hard to choose between so many beautiful tables!) and delivered a customized product that exceeded all of our expectations. We love our table -- absolute perfection -- and can tell that it is built to last forever. Do not spend your money on "high-end" mass producing furniture companies that can only offer expensive and disposable stuff. Order from your local craftsman who doesn't know how to cut corners -- for Saltwoods, making furniture is art.

"Our experience with Saltwoods was amazing from start to finish. The product is amazing - both in appearance and in quality, and everything was highly customizable. We were able to choose dimensions, colors, designs, add-ons, type of wood, style of table, reclaimed/distressed, etc, etc. Dan met all of our needs, was very friendly and professional, quick to respond and eager to help, as well as very fair with his prices. We receive compliments constantly on our tables, and after one summer out here on Nantucket they are all still in great condition with no significant signs of wear and tear. I would definitely work with Saltwoods again. Thanks Dan!"

We had a really wonderful experience with Saltwoods. We worked closely with Dan -- who was so generous with his time and knowledge and who helped us design a contemporary farm table with benches. The set absolutely "pops" in our Boston condo. Everyone who walks through the door says "Wow!" or something like that!

My wife found Saltwoods in her search for Boston area custom furniture makers. We were specifically looking for farm tables that are made of reclaimed wood. After two conversations with Dan we decided to visit the showroom to get a good feel for how the tables look. We fell in love with the reclaimed oak farm tables and placed an order during that visit. The table was ready in a matter of weeks. It is absolutely the best furniture purchase we have ever made. The table has so much character and charm. It's also incredibly sturdy and solid. We couldn't be happier with this table.

I'm a kitchen designer in the Boston area and had the good fortune of discovering Saltwoods while working with a client who needed a custom-sized table to accommodate a built-in banquette bench in the breakfast area. Over a period of a few weeks, I spent countless hours trying to source a local furniture-maker who could offer us a high quality product at a reasonable cost on a tight timeline. It seemed everyone wanted to make the project more elaborate, expensive, and time-consuming than it needed to be. Except Saltwoods. When I spoke with Dan for the first time, it was immediately apparent that he is a can-do kind of professional. He understood what the client wanted and had us settled on the Annie Oakley reclaimed tabletop in no time flat. (The client lives in a beautiful historic home, so we were particularly taken with Dan's passion for keeping reclaimed pieces of New England homes in New England homes.) To boot, we had already sourced our own cast iron bistro-style bases and Dan not only welcomed them into the design, but also offered to attach the bases himself so that he could ensure the structural stability of the table. When the table arrived at the client's home, it exceeded every expectation, from the stunning selection of reclaimed wood to the family-friendly finish on the tabletop. Saltwoods made it easy. I foresee many built-in banquettes in my future clients' kitchens!

The table made for us by Saltwoods is exactly what we wanted. It is a fantastic piece of furniture and so much nicer than anything we could have bought at a furniture store. The craftsmanship is outstanding and the entire process was painless with Dan's help and the samples he showed us in the showroom. We could not be happier with the table! Thanks..

We absolutely love the gorgeous table we got from Saltwoods! Dan made the whole process of figuring out what kind of table we wanted, what wood we wanted, and what finish we wanted a joy. He spent an entire evening with us in the Saltwoods studio, which had a range of beautiful tables to see--a much easier and more satisfying experience than trying to find a table at a chain store. Each day I enjoy seeing this custom table in my house!

It was such a pleasure working with Dan at Saltwoods. He was incredibly patient and knowledgeable. And now I have my absolute dream dining room table! Amazing craftsmanship and customer service. We get tons of compliments on the table and the whole experience was just so easy and comfortable. Thank you Dan!

Our Saltwoods experience was great! Dan was very patient, letting us visit his studio multiple times to look at different types of wood, finishes, and designs. He listened carefully to our goals, answered our many questions, and worked with us to create a custom table that fits perfectly in our odd-sized room. Dan was very clear about every step of the building process, even sending us pictures of the table top as it was being built, and he delivered the finished table exactly as he said he would. We feel good about using reclaimed wood and supporting a local craftsman, and we have a beautiful reclaimed oak dining table that will last for years to come. Thanks!

We were tired of going to big, brand-name furniture stores with limited choices, mediocre quality and foreign-made pieces. We wanted something that was made locally and could be customized without breaking the bank, something that would last and could be passed down. We worked with Saltwoods to build a beautiful farmhouse table that matched our lifestyle needs and couldn't be happier with the end-result. We had a great overall customer experience and would highly recommend them to others.
