"Don does beautiful work - definitely feels like you receive much more than what was expected, and he gets it done in the right time frame! In addition, he is easy to work with, exactly duplicates what you want and will then give you suggestions of what else can be done to make it better. He also cleans up after his work which is rare for people in his trade."
