At AJC Woodworks we are proud of our many satisfied customers and appreciate their offers to share their comments here.
"If you are looking for quality woodworking craftsmanship, you will find exactly that at AJC Woodworks. In November 2002, we had the opportunity to work with Tony Casanave of AJC Woodworks as part of a major Government contract Northrop Grumman Information Technology was completing for the Department of Defense. As part of this project, AJC Woodworks prepared 20 wooden mounts which we used to display biometric fingerprint readers, electronic door strikes, and associated electronic hardware."
"The mounts, produced with Red Oak, were professionally prepared and completed in a clear stain that truly highlighted the craftsmanship employed at AJC woodworks. These mounts were key in providing the Government with professionally prepared and professionally displayed demonstrations. During our installations at the government facility, everyone commented most favorably on the quality woodwork preformed. The mounts were key to a successfully executed demonstration, and we will certainly call upon AJC Woodworks should we require their unique skills in the future."

"My wife and I wanted to let you know how happy we are with the bookcase and work area you installed for us. The wood and staining are exquisite. Fiddletone cherry was just the right choice. Its richness and depth are better than we dared hope. The design and workmanship on everything is excellent. Your recommendations for paneling, fluting, and crown molding could not have been finer. And you exceeded my expectations in your ability to achieve a superb fit in the space available. In a word, we are extremely pleased with the results!
Thank you very much."

"Just a letter of thanks for all the beautiful work you have done for us. As I look around my store at the gorgeous custom cabinets and woodwork, I can't help but remember all the past projects. I believe our association began in 1998. We were in need of some improvements in our store in Merchants Square and another shop owner recommended you to me. The rest is history. I am still amazed at your ability to design and create something that fits so perfectly into an existing space and decor. Many thanks for helping to make such a beautiful environment for our 100+ year-old business."

"Tony Casanave has given us two beautiful, 9 ft. tall built-in bookcase and cabinet units that flank our fireplace. What an impressive focal point in a room with a 20 ft. high ceiling! As you approach the bookcases, you see all the careful detail work in the pieces... the handmade fluting, the dentil molding, the handcrafted doors that line-up perfectly and the exquisite, complex, crown molding combination along the top. Every angle and corner are flawless. The hidden touch-on, touch-off lights make the display shelves come alive and at night provide
wonderful mood lighting.
Mr. Casanave brought our project in on-time and on-budget and we are thoroughly pleased with his craftsmanship. We hope to have him create many more beautiful pieces for our home in the future. Thank you, Tony!"

"Tony Casanave, an artisan of the first order, designed and constructed the beautiful bar-pass-thru for out kitchen-sunroom, matching the existing cabinets perfectly in wood, color and design. We have enjoyed his workmanship over the years at both our home and our church. Thank you, Tony, for your pleasantness and your expertise in accomplishing such excellent work."

"Tony with AJC Woodworks Inc. is the kind of professional craftsman that it is rare to find. He is responsible, punctual, responsive, and a master at his job. He has integrity in his work and his dealings with his client. I could not recommend him more highly, and hope the community will continue to support him as we are fortunate to have a craftsman like him here."

"Tony designed cabinetry to hold a collection of ceramic figurines for us about 6 years ago. They are beautiful. Tony came out to the house, did some measurements and listened to what we wanted. He then went back home and designed the cabinets. He brought his design to us and it was and still is perfect. His construction, installation and clean up was perfect, not a scratch or speck of dust after he was done. Several months later we had Tony come out and design and make a shelf unit for a separate collection...again perfection. We recommend Tony for any cabinetry, shelving or furniture you want him to make, his work is great."

"At Hickory Neck Episcopal Church, we have been delighted with the ambo (combination pulpit and lectern), altar, altar rail, and cross that Tony Casanave designed and hand-crafted for our New Chapel in 2006. He selected the best mahogany and English oak for the purpose, and assembled them to display the best facets of the wood grain. The pieces of furniture he produced have held up well for over three years to a heavy schedule of more than 200 worship events each year. We have no doubt that they will continue to glorify God and help facilitate our worship for generations to come. In fact, our confidence in Tony's work has led us to commission a Bishop's chair to complete our compliment of altar furnishings. Tony has also designed a set of wooden candlesticks for our altar, which we look forward to commissioning as soon as memorial funds are available."

"I have been working with AJC Woodworks Inc. since 1992 for custom cabinetry, custom office furniture and more recently custom computer kiosk cabinets. Tony has been excellent to work with. He listens to the requirements and all the small details that are so important to producing custom woodwork in unique applications. AJC's work is of the highest quality at a very reasonable price and backed with professionalism!"

"AJC Woodworks Inc. is the best. Tony Casanave is honorable, creative, and an expert craftsman. Tony worked with me in sorting out how to make the best use of my space--building cabinets that were custom made in the best sense of the word. Fifteen years later, his work looks as good as when it was first installed. More than that, Tony went out of his way to make sure I was 100% satisfied when the job was first done. When I realized that the color of a piece of furniture that Tony built was not quite what I wanted, Tony took the piece back to his shop and made sure that I was happy with the final color. Tony puts the customer first in other ways. When I asked Tony about building a stereo cabinet, he told me that an item I had spotted on the internet better matched my needs than the piece he could build for me. I cannot imagine a better person to hire than Tony Casanave. His creative high, his sense of craftsmanship, and his professionalism set him apart."
