"We are a moving company, and we handle tens of thousands of items throughout the year. Once in a while minor damages occur no matter how careful we are, by the nature of what we do. John is our exclusive furniture repairman. He always takes good care of our customers and does a good job with repairs. If it is a small scratch, or a broken piece in need of repair, his work is always excellent. He keeps his appointments on time, and his demeanor with the customers is always friendly and helpful. I would recommend his services whole heartedly."

"Dining room chair had broken piece. John custom made a new piece to replace broken piece. Did a very good job to match shape and coloration. You would not know it had been repaired. Picked up chair at my home & delivered to me when completed. He is very good and reasonable for this kind of custom repair work. Very well. Could not have been any better."
"I have a set of twin beds that belonged to my grandmother and I cherish them. The footboard on one broke where the side rail goes into it. I was devastated. My husband knew someone at our church that makes and repairs furniture. His name is John Haywood. He came to our house picked up the footboard and took it with him. He returned it about a week later and it looks as good as new!!! Very pleased with his work!"
"Everything repaired looks great - you can no longer
tell there was any damage even under bright lighting. I
contacted John on 8/3 and he agreed to come take a look
the following day (8/4). He was able to do the repair
work that same day since it was all relatively minor.
He was very professional, friendly and polite. He even
offered advice on furniture care while he was here.
On a side note, I had contacted several furniture repair companies prior to this. The moving company we used for the long distance relocation does not have an office here and therefore did not handle the arrangements for these repairs. I had trouble finding a company that wanted to do onsite repairs. One company even wanted to charge me a large amount of money for an estimate. Other companies wanted me to haul all my furniture to their shops for these minor repairs. Finally, I contacted several local movers to ask for their recommendations. John was very highly recommended by one of the movers. I would definitely recommend him and would hire him if I need any repairs in the future."
"We used John T. Haywood Custom Furniture. He did a couple of jobs for me. He refinished the top of a desk, and he did a superb job. He also refinished the top of two tables for me. John was fantastic. The guy is really good."
"Previous refinish of table yielded so many compliments that we had more pieces repaired and referred family and friends to him. Family heirloom furniture badly damaged and John restored it, provided tips for long term care."
"Contacted John and asked him to come to my house and look at an end table that had been ruined. I put a cheap fan on it and the rubber tips of the fan adhered to the table. The damage was down to the wood. He came over and took a look and said it was a veneered table. I bought the table from Macy's and I thought it was a quality piece of furniture. I used furniture polish on it (which John told I should have never done). He offered to repair it for $200 but I think he probably should have charged more because he had to completely refinish the entire top which had (don't know the correct word) a border painted on it. Anyways, after a few weeks it came back better than new and beautiful."
