Client feedback

A Sample of what clients have to say about Ross and his work

“The trees have been thanked and the table and her maker much blessed over the last few days. May you continue to create such beauty in this world, Ross! Thank you!!” (Peggy Campbell from Chelsea, Quebec)

“I’ve recently reacquainted myself with the fellow who made our bedroom suite for Marg and I a few years ago. This guy is an artist, a nice man and likely one of the most talented woodworkers in the country.  Our bed is the one you see under the Fine Furniture section (made with walnut and pin striped with maple).  As we are heading east, I thought I’d pass his name to those discerning friends and acquaintances I’m leaving behind, just in case you need or want a bullet proof guy to do custom furniture or high end cabinetry work. BTW, VERY GOOD VALUE FOR $ spent.” (Bill Meldrum from Ottawa, Ontario)

“During the course of renovating our home, my wife and I have had the opportunity to use many tradesmen/craftsmen within a substantial radius of Ottawa but Ross Rooke was far and away the most gifted and professional artisan we had the pleasure of engaging. From the beginning of our project to the very end, he proved to be extraordinarily diligent, keeping us constantly in touch with the progress of his activity, is meticulous to the point of perfection and has the keen and innovative eye of a master craftsman. His work in creating a large and beautiful door dividing our living area from the library has substantially increased the value of our home, saved us thousands of dollars in heating costs and has generated more positive comment than I am able to mention. His expert eye for detail interwoven with a sense of aesthetics gives him a definite edge over any of his competitors. My wife and I unhesitatingly recommend Mr. Rooke for any task that requires the services of a gifted and professional craftsman.” (Al Skaw from Wakefield, Quebec)

“Hear, Hear for local talent — A shout out for Ross Rooke, local custom cabinet maker extraordinaire. We just had Ross install another piece in our home and it’s absolutely beautiful. The dining room cabinet and shelving unit is so elegant and follows kitchen cabinets, loft railings, living room benches, vestibule cabinets and a gorgeous front door. It’s obvious that we’re fans! Ross has been amazing in adding creative elements, retro fitting, balancing function with beauty and it has been worth every penny as an investment in our home. It’s rare to find such craftsmanship from someone who truly loves wood and we love that he’s just around the corner. If you’re looking for something unique in your home we highly recommend meeting with him. There’s more to his work than what you’ll find on the site!” (Georgina and Andrew from Chelsea, Quebec)

Tree-soul“Thank you for your last work at home! Such a luxury to have doors and cupboards that work!!! ” (Chantal and Mark from Aylmer, Quebec)

“Dear Ross, just a quick note to thank you once again for the solid cherry door. We are so happy with the result. We are very impressed with the design and the way you integrated it into our log home. Your creativity, professionalism and attention to detail have been wonderful. We are recommending you to all our friends. With thanks” (Lindy and David from Ottawa, Ontario)

“Thanks Ross for the beautiful drawer and shelving unit! It will be well used and loved!” (Shona and family from Chelsea, Quebec)

“I hired Ross last September to custom build a new kitchen for me by Christmas Eve. I have to say that I was impressed by his work ethic, attention to detail and commitment. I really appreciated that he took the time to plan out every detail with me and that he respected the vision I had for my kitchen. Not only was the job completed on time but there was very little clean-up required and not once had we been inconvenienced during the job. In addition the price he quoted me was the price he charged. We were very pleased with Ross’ workmanship, attention to detail and the ‘little extras’ he added.
Our kitchen is beautiful now and I’m proud to show it off. If you’re looking for a contractor who is professional, innovative, dependable and who does quality work, check out Ross Rooke – you won’t be disappointed.” (Penny A. from Farm Point, Chelsea, Quebec)

“Thanks Ross, it was truly a pleasure working with you – and your work is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much. If we have future projects, we will certainly be in touch. And we will show off the doors to all of our friends!” (Louise from Chelsea, Quebec)

“From start to finish, from designing to installing, working with Ross Rooke was a very enjoyable experience. Ross listened to our ideas, observed how we live and then designed an elegant office that exactly fits our needs. His workmanship and attention to detail is outstanding. Each section of our cabinets has elegant ‘book match’ grain that runs from floor to ceiling through several doors. You cannot buy this kind of quality; it has to be custom done and done with care. Ross transformed our dingy, unused family room into an elegant, efficient and cheerful office. We are happy to serve as references and glad to show off the work Ross did for us.” (M & D from Nepean, Ontario)

“Thank you for being so easy to work with and accommodating. The craftsmanship in the desk and block are way beyond our expectations and will happily be with us for the rest of our lives. You can bet that I will be telling anyone who will listen about you.” (A & S from Ottawa, Ontario)

“Thank you so much for the great work you’ve done. We really like it. Thank you also for all the extra touches. It has certainly made things better around our home. And it was all so easy.” (T & D from Ottawa, Ontario)

“Ross Rooke is a master cabinetmaker & woodworker…we are quite impressed with his work…he did an excellent job on our piece of furniture, on time and within budget.” (F& M from Chelsea, Quebec)
