Live-edge black walnut coffee table:

"Hi Will!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I just wanted to let you know how much I love the beautiful table! I was so surprised! It couldn’t be more perfect and I was so happy to see your signature card underneath. What a lovely addition to our will Eick collection. A friend stopped by to see the house today that we haven’t seen in months and she was blown away by the furniture. She’s asked for your contact info for a future project which of course I will give her

Thanks again for being part of the surprise Will!

Happy new year!

Godes - Goodman kitchen

Project Date: May 2012

Project Price: $10,000 - $49,999

HomeComing Woodworks (Will Eick) built and installed the cabinetry for a kitchen remodeling project that we did in late spring 2012.

We wanted a contemporary kitchen using tiger maple with an amber stain throughout the kitchen. HomeComing Woodworks specially selected the tiger maple so that doors and drawer fronts displayed a high degree of figure – which is what we wanted. We are very pleased with both the appearance (it is stunning) and the quality of the construction.

Will Eick gave us a firm fixed-price for the project, and stuck with that price. There were no price surprises.

We found Will easy to work with throughout the process. The installation went smoothly, and having Will and his installation assistant working in our house was a comfortable experience. A kitchen remodel is, of course, a disruptive event, but Will arranged the installation work such that we had a working kitchen (sink, range, refrig) every evening during the process.

We would definitely hire HomeComing Woodworks again.

Will started by visiting us at the house and spending quite a bit of time listening to what we were looking for. He also took a complete set of measurements. From there, he began sending us CAD drawings of proposed kitchen designs. Through the communication and feedback, we probably went through 7 or more drafts. He was patient and thoughtful throughout the whole project.

His design included everything we wanted and many features we wouldn't have thought of without him. He definitely knows kitchens. Some highlights of his design are the fridge "hidden location", use of an outside corner under the counter to store the blender and other counter hogging tools, and a stove location we hadn't thought of (but it is perfect). He even laid out the lighting.

It is almost two years since the project was finished and we are still not saying "I wish we had...". We do say, "I love this kitchen" and "There's nothing I would change." We had a unique space to use and Will designed an efficient, working, beautiful kitchen. He advised on appliance placement, storage, and styles. It was a full service experience.

This year, we had him build us nook and table to match. Excellent as well.

We worked with Will Eick of Homecoming Woodworks from the fall of 2011 until early the following year on a complete redesign and remodel of our kitchen. Throughout the entire process, which encompassed an initial meeting, design iterations before settling on the final design, and the construction and follow-up, we were very impressed with both how well Will listened to our needs and how well adapted to our desires the finished kitchen turned out. Two and a half years out our kitchen remains a joy to look at and work in.

After conversations with us Will came up with several design options, one of which we chose. He then made very clear which decisions about materials had to be made when in order for construction to proceed smoothly. Cost estimates were provided and updated as needed. The project came in on budget.

Will provided us with extensive literature from which to come up with design ideas and, eventually, to choose actual colors, finishes and hardware. He made recommendations on where to go to choose tiles, flooring, countertops, hardware, lighting, etc., all of which worked well.

At the end of each work day Will and the subcontractors with whom he worked left our kitchen as clean and useable as possible. Despite a complete gutting, rewiring, some plumbing work, flooring, and painting there was only one day out of about 6 weeks when we could not use our kitchen.

In short, we are very pleased with how our kitchen turned out and highly recommend Will Eick and Homecoming Woodworks for any kitchen remodel, no matter how extensive.

Project Date: June 2013

Project Price Range: $10,000 - $49,999

Upgrade of existing Kitchen (no appliances involved). Converted most lower cupboards to drawers, repainted all doors & drawer fronts, new lighting, New Quartz counter tops. Will Eick is the owner and operates alone with subs for electrical & counter tops. He is highly professional in decisions, contracting, estimating and customer relations. His pricing was reasonable, presented broken down by major elements and he stuck to his prices. The only changes were for unforeseeable minor items with a couple owner generated. His scheduling worked well for us. The most striking aspects of his work is the high quality and attention to detail.
