New in-person bids will be delayed for some time. After looking at the above pricing, you may send us
an email requesting that we add you to the call list. I need a paper trail of everything which is why I
request the email. Within the email please note your full name, address, and phone number. Tell us
what pieces you have, what you need done, and that you have already seen ballpark prices via our
website. For wood pieces -- we can then plan to only set one appointment ... for a firm quote and pick
up at the same time. For upholstery pieces, we will then plan to set the firm bid / yardage appointment.

As of 7/2 the city of St Louis mandates that masks must be worn to enter our building. We appreciate
your cooperation.

* Woodwork -- current jobs are booked into May. New people being added to the call list would be
called to set an appointment for APPROX April. At that appointment you would receive a firm quote
and we would be prepared to pick up. See below for completion times once in shop.

* Upholstery -- current jobs are booked into July. New people being added to the call list would be
called to set a firm bid / yardage appointment for APPROX June. Once you have your fabric we will
add your job to the next available opening. We do not pick up the items until we are ready to work on
them. We do not have the room to bring them in sooner than that. Please give us a call if you would
like to look through our fabric sample books. We are trying to limit the number of customers in our
front office to one person/one family at a time. I am setting fabric appointments for M-F with either a
9-11 time frame or a 1-4 time frame.

measure for exact details
**NOTE** We place a foam order about once a month for jobs that are
already on the schedule. The best way to get onto our call list / schedule for
new foam cores is this: Bring ONE cushion into the shop We will then measure
to determine the exact size that we need to order. We will also have you sit on
2 samples to determine if you like the medium or firm density. Once we have
done that, you will bring your cushion back home with you until we are ready
to work on it. When we receive our foam order I call customers in order of
first in-first out to bring in their cushions for a 1-3 day turnaround (depending
on what we are doing)
