After being turned down by several other wood crafting companies who were not interested in my small job, Turntech said "Yes" and made the chair bottom spindles needed to repair my favorite colonial style maple chairs. Thank you! Turntech, i have my beloved chairs back good as new.

I ordered and received a porch post in 2020. I'm sorry I'm so late writing a review. Due to the weather and a broken ankle I haven't been able to install it yet. Customer service was great, The quality of the post is fantastic, I sent my own drawing copied from the other 150 year old posts on the porch and they matched it. I still need to paint the post and install it , I will upload a picture when I get there. An excellent woodworking company. I will use them again if I need a top quality post.
