  • The tables are amazing! We are thrilled. As Scott said, "We could not have imagined anything this beautiful."

  • I finally got my table in the house. It is perfect!!

  • Thanks again for all your efforts in building our table. The table is just Awesome! I don't think we could quite picture it until we had it fully assembled in the dining room. It just turned out great. I honestly don't think I've ever seen Dana so excited about a piece of furniture.

  • Really a great site.

  • My husband and I are renovating our kitchen and I was looking for the finishing touch – something that would be unique, beautiful and make our room have personality. I found that with our table from Wood Genius. As soon as we started working with Clyde we were impressed with the attention to detail, the concern for meeting our expectations and the care given our table. From the very beginning each step was photographed and explained by Sheri via email. We looked forward to the updates and it made us want to go down to NC and work on our table too!! The process was wonderful. As our table progressed we loved the photos so much that we decided to add a bench. The bench is fantastic. It is wide and sturdy. In retrospect I wish I had gone for two benches and not done upholstered chairs on the other side. Perhaps that will be my next “Clyde Project”. I don’t think that I have ever written a review for anything but I think our table is such a work of art that I had no hesitation in writing this review. Clyde is beyond a furniture maker or even “wood working genius” – he is a true artisan. Our table is something to treasure.

  • Last year I began my search for a maple coffee table to match some Ethan Allen furniture I had purchased some years ago. I searched the internet and could only find the usual rectangular ones. Then I came across The Wood Genius and I knew immediately that I wanted to purchase one of Clyde’s unique coffee tables.

    My experience dealing with both Sheri and Clyde was one of the upmost professionalism. The table I had chosen was unfortunately sold so Clyde spoke to me and said he could make me a custom table. Clyde sent me various photographs of pieces of ambrosia maple he had in stock for me to choose from. He marked up the photographs with detailed markings where the wood would be cut and where the beautiful turquoise would be inserted.

    Being out in California I could not visit the show room but I knew instantly that both Sheri and Clyde were wonderful people and I felt at ease putting my trust in their workmanship. Sheri kept me up to date with the progress of the table. The whole process from introduction to receipt of the table went so smoothly and I received my table just before Christmas packed so very carefully in a custom made box.

    I am so happy with my coffee table – it is just what I wanted; it is a beautiful piece of furniture. Thank you Sheri and Clyde for making me such a unique coffee table which I will cherish always. I would not hesitate in recommending your wonderful work.

  • I love the desk, it's beautiful and turned out just the way I wanted. Clyde did a wonderful job and the finish is very nice. Sheri, I really appreciate your help throughout the process. You guys are great!!

    Already thinking of another project.

  • I chose to work with the "Wood Genius" on a custom natural-edge dining room table because of the beauty and the quality of his creations--as based on reputation on online presence. The experience was absolutely wonderful from beginning to end, and I am more than pleased to write a review for this fantastic shop.

    Despite the distance between us, Sheri and Clyde were warmly engaged and made the entire process straightforward and absolutely delightful. From the first consultation, they expertly answered every question and guided the whole process from the initial slab selection and overall design through inlay and final touches. They kept me in the loop with regular emails, phone calls, and even pictures of the table's progress! The final piece is simply gorgeous—in fact, it’s hard to come up with the right adjectives to do it justice. I have simply never seen a more beautiful table. I still stop and marvel every time I walk by do all of our visitors!

    Masterful work AND terrific service! We could NOT be happier, and I would recommend the Woodgenius for any custom project without hesitation.

  • I can not imagine a more perfect dining set! We LOVE it! Thank you and clyde so much!!! =D

  • I just wanted to say thank you. The table exceeds my expectations and I couldn't be happier with it. Clyde did a fantastic job

  • The piece arrived and it is spectacular!

  • We received the desk yesterday, and cannot stop ourselves from walking to my husbands office over, and over just to admire this amazing piece of art. It is absolutely stunning! What this man can do with wood is truly amazing.

  • I could not be more thrilled with my live edge table with turquoise inlay. Clyde has a masterful gift! I had to rely on him and Sheri for their artistic insight as I am lacking in that department. I simply described high level what I was thinking and like magic . . . they made it happen.

    They kept me in the loop throughout the process with email and photos. I never felt “iffy” about ordering such a large purchase online as you can instantly tell they are wonderful people to work with.

    I cannot believe that for at least a dozen years I have had a picture in my head of my dream table. Shopped so many stores and never found anything remotely close. Now Clyde and Sheri have made my dream table come to life. And I cannot thank them enough!

    It beat our expectations 10 X.

    Very very beautiful. Workmanship excellent.
    Attention to detail outstanding. Can't thank you enough.

  • My table just arrived!!!!!! I was beyond excited as it was "unveiled" from its wrapping... and it was seriously even more beautiful than I imagined!! I didn't think it was possible, but it's better than the pictures; absolutely STUNNING!
    Thank you so much for your suggestions and help along the way; you were wonderful to work with and I couldn't be happier with the result.

  • My table arrived, and it’s even more beautiful than I had imagined! Thank you so much!

  • It's fantastic!

    The pictures on your website only provide a general idea of the workmanship and details of your offerings, but after seeing the table, I understand why they call you the "Wood Genius" .

  • The coffee table was delivered this morning. It could not be more beautiful!! I can't wait for our cabin to be done so we can place it!! Thank you so much for this special piece. Now my husband said, hrmmm, they make tables too?

    The table is just what I wanted. Thank you so much!!

  • The table is in my house. My house is now an art gallery. Where do I begin?
    First, your site is aptly named; Clyde is a wood genius. And he is more — a truly gifted artist and craftsman. I am moved to tears at the sight and touch of this table. It resonates God’s creation, the astonishing beauty in nature. When my friends and family gather at this table to share a meal, I will thank God for His blessings and also I will thank Him for the gift of my table-maker.

  • The table arrived in mint condition!! Please tell Clyde that I am speechless! It is absolutely beautiful!!!!
    Thank you both for everything!
