Dear Jon White,

You recently refinished a teak chest that I've had with me for 25 years. Those 25 years of extensive use were clearly evident in the stains, fading, scratches and assorted blemished that covered the chest surfaces. When you returned the piece I was astonished at its transformation. If it's possible, that piece of furniture looked better than when I originally bought it.

After my recent move I called to you my distress about a scratch that appeared on the piece. You immediately sent someone out to repair the damage. Your workman quickly refurbished the piece and it's now impossible to locate where the scratch was. I have never received such prompt and courteous service.

I want to compliment you on the quality of work and service that your company provides and the professional manner in which everything is handled. It was great doing business with you.
