Dr. Seth Whitelaw | West Chester, PA

“I cannot say enough good things about working with Chris and C.Z. Woodworking. Living in a historic home that dates to 1850 has its challenges, but none more so than closets. With a large attic on the fourth (4th) floor, we had plenty of space to build the closet, but we needed someone with both the vision and ability, which brings me to Chris.

When we first met Chris and discussed our need for a large, cedar walk-in closet, he was extremely excited at the prospect. That enthusiasm never waned even when we showed him the location and the fact that materials had to come up four flights of stairs through a house that my wife had perfectly restored. Nor did it diminish, when he realized nothing was straightforward or easy because of the age of our home.

The project came out PERFECTLY with no problems, no issues, no damage and all in record time. Chris even approached us with ideas we would never have thought of to get natural light into the space reusing an antique window that was period for the home to allow light to come in from the unfinished part of the attic! The bottom line, is I believe Chris and the C.Z. Woodworking team can tackle any project and execute it to perfection.”

Linda Jaffe | Rosewood Design | Media, PA

Jaffe – Bedroom Oasis “Our experience working with Chris Zumpano of CZ Woodworking was first-rate from start to finish. Chris is patient and professional during the design phase, material selection and acquisition phase, and construction phase. Chris conveys a sense of authenticity and caring about his work, while truly taking an interest in each project. He maintains a bright and cheerful attitude throughout and always responds to emails in a courteous and personal manner. I relied on Chris for his professional input regarding reclaimed wood selection, availability and construction details. He is extremely knowledgeable about all three. In the end, our built project was exactly the way we had envisioned it and we could not be happier with our new bedroom. Chris stands behind his work and it was a pleasure to work with him. I look forward to our next project with CZ Woodworking!”

Steve and Kate Adams | Glen Arm, MD

“We initially reached out to Chris (CZ Woodworking) because we were looking to have a kitchen table and mantle built for our home. We wanted something with a rustic look that would stand the test of time, especially with two young girls running around! Chris’s work was nothing short of amazing! Working with him was an absolute pleasure from the initial time we reached out via the website, through design discussions, and then with delivery & installation. His communication was consistent throughout the project, as he provided updates through each step of the project. I would absolutely recommend Chris for any project you are considering!”

Keri T. | Lansdale, PA

Keri T. – Deck “CZ Woodworking (Chris) was recommended to us for a project to replace / expand our rotted, existing deck. As a very picky, business-owner, I was surprised that I was immediately impressed by Chris’ professionalism, expertise, and rapid response time. He handled everything from obtaining the permit to ordering the delivery and removal of the dumpster. In addition, he completed the project in a very aggressive timeline (3 weeks) to accommodate our desire to open the deck on New Year’s Eve. He and his crew were tidy, efficient and ALWAYS on time. The best part of the experience was the final result. It is absolutely beautiful and exactly what we wanted. Thank you CZ Woodworking! ”

Jim and Jackie Giovanoni / Glenmoore, PA

Giovanoni – Contemporary Cabinetry “We are so pleased with our family room built-in entertainment center that Chris designed and installed. As a family with two young children, we had two needs: 1) a unit that could store numerous toys, games, DVDs, and books; and 2) something that would make our living area feel warm and welcoming. Chris met our needs and exceeded both goals, completely knocking it out of the park.

The design consultation was thorough, and Chris worked patiently with us on fine tuning every critical component of the project. He expertly added his suggestions while always respecting and reflecting our vision and design preferences. The quality of the products used set our built-in apart from others we have seen. It’s solid, clean, crisp and impressive. It “pops” when you first see it and all of our family and friends have complimented how it “warms” our home. He and his team’s attention to detail and the beautiful craftsmanship have turned our family room from a blank space into a beautiful living area that the entire family can enjoy.

We can’t wait to work with CZ Woodworking again. We already have a number of future projects being planned and know that we are in good hands with Chris and his team.”

Greg Otis | North Wilmington, Delaware

Otis – Distressed Built-In

“Chris Zumpano is a true artisan and professional. I called Chris and he came over just once to take measurements and discuss our project. I gave him an inspiration photo to start from. He returned a design and professional project back to us in a timely manner. The space was challenging and in a 100+ yr old home with all the nuanced quirkiness that brings with it. He completed the project on time and end result is stunning. From the detail of each joint, hardware and finish. Our built-in is beautiful. Chris remained accessible through the project and was easy to work with. I highly recommend CZ Woodworking”

Tracy & Glen Gibson | Annapolis, MD

Gibson – Maple Dining Table

“Chris did an outstanding job coming up with the design and fabricating a 108″ L x 50″ W dining room table. Chris was extremely patient helping me decide what type of wood to use, what the design of the base should be to meet my needs, etc. In the end, Chris made a beautiful maple top with a metal base, which enabled me to put chairs all around the table without any interference. Chris was extremely pleasant to work with over the phone, and since I live several hours away, I didn’t meet him until he delivered my table. He spent awhile putting my very large table together and made sure it was perfect. I couldn’t believe how beautiful it looked! He was able to match up my new table to my existing kitchen cabinets and the metal base to existing hardware. I can tell he was very proud of his craftsmanship, as well he should be, but what really impressed me about Chris was his honesty and intelligence. I cannot mention enough good qualities about Chris and his beautiful work. This table will be with my family for many years to come.”

“Working with Chris was an absolute pleasure – not only because of the beautiful pieces he brings to life, but also because his level of professionalism. Every step of the process from start to finish exceeded all of my expectations. Chris spends extra time getting to know your personal style and preferences to ensure his designs fit with the rest of your decor. He kept us updated throughout the building process so we always knew the status of our pieces. He scheduled delivery times based on our schedules, was extremely careful and professional during delivery, ensuring that the pieces were installed and set correctly in our home and spent extra time explaining care instructions for the pieces. It is clear from the extra care and attention that Chris is extremely passionate and proud of his work, as he should be. We get compliments on our custom hutch and dining room from everyone that sees them, and couldn’t have imagined more perfect pieces ourselves. The quality is outstanding, the detail is unique, and we love knowing that they are completely custom and unique. Chris is clearly extremely talented, and will not disappoint with his custom designs!”

The IPE wood deck looks beautiful and we look forward to years of enjoyment on our deck. The team was very receptive to our requests. We had the pleasure of having them over for lunch one hot sunny afternoon and get to know them better. All in all, a great experience and we wish them continued success.

From the beginning it was easy and enjoyable working with Chris. He took my ideas and turned them into the most amazing, one of a kind table. He kept me posted on the progress through the whole process and delivered it exactly when he said it would be done. I can’t express how much I love my table!

“Chris built the ‘Newel Post’ for my home. It sprung from a design by my wife and I. Chris then enhanced it, made and mounted it to be really rigid with the existing railing and new walnut flooring/stairs. Chris was terrific to work with, worked clean and efficiently. Price was fair, and the result speaks for itself. We’ll hire him again, and I’m already referring him to my clients. More pix when the lights come on!”

Chef Danny Wells | Owner of Republic Restaurant

Wells - Black Walnut Dining Table

“My wife and I had a great experience working with Chris Zumpano on the design of our dining room table. We had seen another table that Chris had built on the CZ Woodworking Facebook page. It had a beautiful farmhouse feel to it with a dark tone wood top. There were also unique details at the legs that caught our eye. I wrote to Chris and told him how much I liked the table I had seen and that we were interested in having one built for our new home. We promptly agreed on a day that was convenient for us to have him come to our house to discuss design options. Throughout our meeting Chris was very attentive and took careful notes on our wants as well as needs. He made several suggestions and offered us an array of options on style and price. After we chose the materials we wanted, we were given a very reasonable lead-time for our table’s completion. Chris was spot-on with his delivery date and not only brought the table to our home, but helped us arrange the dining room around it and walked us through care and maintenance. In short, our experience with Chris at CZ Woodworking was very enjoyable. We received friendly and professional service, accurate lead times and a gorgeous finished product. I would highly recommend CZ Woodworking for any custom woodworking project.”

Manny – Live-Edge Poplar Dining Table

“When I got in contact with Chris about our desire for a live edge farmhouse table we had an idea of what we would have liked to receive. We had seen the style and thought that it would be a great way to bring our newly purchased home together. Soon after, Chris was able to get our desired wood from a local mill. Within weeks we were presented with more than we could have ever hoped for. Chris’ work not only produced us our desired table, but a freestanding monument to the cause of local carpenters and artists. We are very thankful that we chose CZ Woodworking.”

The attention to detail and the quality of craftsmanship are what really stood out to my wife and I, and we could not be any happier. Chris was great to work with, from start to finish, and now we have a custom piece to call our own. Thank you CZ Woodworking!”

Kevin and Marnie Keenan | Springfield, PA

Keenan – Built-in Office Shelving

“Whether for home or business if you are considering a woodworking project you need to speak with Chris Zumpano at CZ Woodworking.

Chris recently designed and built a bookshelf in our home office. At every step in the process – from concept, into budget, through design and final construction – Chris exceeded our expectations.

Chris is a true craftsman and his attention to detail is obvious in all aspects of our project. The quality of his workmanship is of the highest level. During the installation Chris showed me features and specifics and how they enhance the piece and to speak frankly it knocked my socks off.

Chris uses quality locally sourced materials. The bookshelf is built soundly and I’m sure will stand the test of time.

When my wife and I began with the concept I told Chris I wanted a sturdy bookshelf. Chris responded ‘sturdiness is at the core of everything’ he builds and the bookshelf should go one step further and be a centerpiece of the room.

Well I am happy to say that Chris built us a piece that did just that and we are looking forward to filling this with memories for years to come!”

Doug Reinke | Philadelphia, PA

“Chris and his team were a pleasure to work with. His talent and attention to detail is matched by his conscientious nature and professionalism. They did a fantastic job updating and restoring my roof deck and now have a whole list of interior carpentry jobs for them. Great resource!”

Johnny McCartin | Founder, XeRo Media

“I work with Chris Zumpano regularly and I must say that you will not find someone more kind and professional. I see every piece of work he puts out for his customers and it’s truly the best of the best. Look no further than CZ Woodworking!”
