I wanted a platform made for my bed and The Philadelphia Woodworking Company was suggested to me by a friend. Matt came out and we worked on a design together. I hired him to do the job and I am extremely pleased with the results. He even took a drawer from my dresser so he could match the stain. The bed is exactly what I wanted. He completed the job on time and for the price he quoted me. I would definitely hire Matt again for any woodworking job that I have
