In April of 2004 I had Ferrari Restoration come to my residence in the Richmond District of San Francisco. I contracted with Ferrari to have my entire 10' x 15' kitchen cabinet doors and drawers removed, sanded, refinished, restained and reinstalled. I also contracted to have the cabinet frames sanded, refinished and restained. The workmanship was excellent and our 35 year-old cabinets look wonderful. The color matches throughout from the doors, drawers and frames. I would recommend use Ferrari Restoration again if and when need arises.

I have worked with Amilcar Ferrari several times in the past year. I have hired him to do some refinishing work on several pieces of antique furniture at my home. Mr. Ferrari did a beautiful job on a 150 year-old dining room set. It had been a lovely set but obviously had not been treated well over the years. Mr. Ferrari lovingly brought the finish of the furniture back to life; now it is a real conversation piece! He is a real artist, and takes enormous pride in the finished product. In addition, Mr. Ferrari has done refinishing work of office furniture in my office here in San Francisco (damage during a recent flood as a result of a broken air conditioning unit). The pieces which he restored now look like new pieces and we are extremely please with; his work. Mr. Ferrari is a pleasure to work with and the quality of his work is superb. I am happy to recommend him to any future customer.

I am delighted to provide a letter of enthusiastically recommending Amilcar Ferrari's services. He refinished a cherry-wood baby grand piano in my home last month and did a superb job. The piano had unfortunately, suffered a great deal of sun and water damage, and had uneven bleaching, cracking, and peeling of the finish. I wasn't sure it would be possible to restore it. By its nature, the work required multiple visits to prepare for and apply multiple coats of varnish, but Mr. Ferrari started the job quickly after I first contacted him and completed it in a very timely manner. During the process, I found him to be a very easy to communicate with and highly professional and reliable. The piano now looks like new, with a beautiful, even, original-tone finish an no evidence of the old damage. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. It was very convienent having the piano remain in my home, and the price, which Mr. Ferrari set prior to the work, was extremely reasonable.

Just a quick note to say how pleased my husband and I are with the various wood finishing projects you have completed for us at our Russian Hill apartment. The refinished chherry kitchen cabinets turned out beautifully! Our antique CHippendale table that you refinished to a "French country" look is absolutely stunning! The fireplace mantle that you painted to reflect true wood grain is gorgeous! Several friends have been very impressed with your woodworking skills and painting techniques. Your attention to detail, efficiencey and thoroughness in each job are reflected in the final product's beauty. We are so pleased with your honest quotes and reliable service. We look forward to using your talents again, and would highly recommend your services to anyone.

Mr. Amilcar Ferrari refinished an antique dinning table and 6 chairs. He removed the six individual back suport pieces of each chair and reglued each one. One chair had been broken and he rebuilt it so well that it looks new. The refinishing process was professionally done and the finished job was exactly what we wanted and more so. We can definitely recommend Mr. Ferrari as a professional finisher.

Amilcar Ferrari of Ferrari Restoration stained six new windows for me, and also refinished the surrounding wood and moldings. He struck me as someone who takes pride in his work and wants his custiomer to be satisfied. I found him fair in his pricing, honest and easy to work with. I would use him again.
