-"Adam built a wardrobe for my new studio. He was really easy to work with and immediately understood exactly what I was looking for. He had terrific suggestions regarding the type of wood to use and the design of the overall project, offering multiple versions for me to choose from. Everyone who has seen the finished project comments on the high quality of the work and how natural it looks in the space. I am really pleased with the entire experience. I'll definitely be contacting Adam for future projects and would happily recommend him to anyone looking for high quality work from a professional guy."

-"Adam (and his team as needed) are spectacular. We are interior designers and having good contractors is essential to our business' success.

We have seen a lot of contractors in our years and are only able to build a "family" of sorts with the ones who:

1- Provide an excellent product
2- Do so at a reasonable price, on budget and on time
3- Communicate efficiently and effectively
4- Execute ethical and professional practices
5- Are able to overcome challenges that present themselves in a smart way that keeps both us and our clients happy, every time
6- We trust, as we are often held accountable for our contractor's actions

Adam and his team do all of the above. Their product is always flawless. They have not missed a deadline or gone over budget.

We have had several occasions where a design needed to be changed and Adam has come up with solutions without affecting lead time or cost to our client.

Adam is detail oriented, flexible, smart, and creative. He has a great design eye, and the talent to execute it.

In short, he makes our lives easier - he and his team are a pleasure to work with and they inspire us again and again. No need to micro-manage, which is usually a huge part of our job. When working with Adam, we know we can sit back and relax - everything will be taken care of to the level that we (and our tough clients) expect.

Many thanks to Adam and his team, we are lucky to have them in our corner. We look forward to the next successful collaboration."

-"I really can't say enough about how great working with Adam is! After spending a ton of money on designers for an office reconfiguration, my CEO decided to scrap the whole plan and left the redesign to me. Adam took my vision and created a beautiful custom workstation. After the initial project, we worked together on several other projects that made our use of space far more efficient. It was a great collaboration and we will be working together again. Again, he was great all the way through from communication to timing to the quality of work, Adam and his team can not be beat."

-"Adam and his crew did a great job designing, building, painting and installing a very large built in dresser. Adam was easy to work with on the design and accommodated all my requests, answered all my questions and was very flexible in all cases. He addressed my concerns with thought and adapted the design accordingly. The finished product is amazing. The craftsmanship far exceeded my expectations. The paint finish is so smooth its unbelievable and the drawers and doors open and close perfectly. Vorrath Woodworks is a top of the line custom cabinet builder and furniture builder. I would recommend Adam for any custom woodworking project and know that he will do everything he can to exceed your expectations."

-"Adam did a spectacular job. He worked with us on the design, from sitting at table measuring books and art objects, to putting the plans on line so we could visualize and make changes. We visited his Oakland warehouse work space where he and carpentry partner Greg were building the large sections. A bonus was that the picture John had made to cover the wall bed bottom was beautifully complemented by the transformation of the rest of the room. Adam was patient, creative and helpful as the concept of this combined guest room and library took form, and the execution was stellar. Kudos!"

-"Adam and I have been working together for a few years now. He is my go to guy when it comes to fine detailed carpentry. His skills range from functional cabinetry to finely detailed custom pieces."

-"Adam is a very talented woodworker, artist and furniture maker. I searched for a dining room table for 10 months. He set deadlines and he hit them. He discussed cost up front and never deviated. In fact, he finished it prior to his own deadline.
Now, about the table - it is gorgeous, exceeding my hopes. There were many details that were important to me and they mattered to Adam, as well. He allowed me to obsess over stain color, dimensions, the grain in the wood...everything. The table has a pedestal base and I was worried about wobbling. This thing is a rock of stability!
Finally, his design sense is wonderful. He added an edge detail that is very special. I love Adam and his work... and you will, too."

-"Loved working with Adam!! Not only did he produce top-notch final products for me, but his creativity and design aesthetic made everything come together superbly. I will definitely call on Adam again, and I highly recommend Vorrath Woodworks."
