Custom built-in units and mantle
Amazing quality and customer service | Kevin M in Toronto
After a long search, I decided on using Black Forest Woodworking for my custom wall units and fireplace. I live in an older home, so it was very important that the new built-in units and mantle match the existing floor and trim. Istvan was very professional throughout the entire process. He kept us informed of how things were progressing, provided various samples, and was even able match the wood colour we wanted. The quality of the unit is amazing and it has transformed our living room. We would not hesitate to use Black Forest Woodworking again in the future.

Master bedroom Fireplace Mantle
A perfect custom mantle by Black Forest Woodworking | Mark in Etobicoke
Steve at Black Forest Woodworking had great ideas for a custom fireplace mantle we wanted for our master bedroom. What he delivered was exceptional - great quality of wood, beautiful rich staining and a clever hidden drop down storage door for our Blu Ray player. Steve came and cheerfully installed the unit professionally and cleaned up perfectly. We recommend Black Forest Woodworking as an A+ firm.
Wood Mantel for Fireplace
Steven the Designer and Builder was exceptional | Anna in Kleinburg
Steven's customer service was fabulous. We knew we wanted a wood mantel but I didn't know what design. When he came in, he looked at where we wanted to have it installed and designed a beautiful mantel for us. We were extremely happy with the way it turned out and he had it installed by the date we agreed on.
Fireplace mantle with adjoining glass cabinets and bar
Black Forest surprised everyone who's seen the project with the quality and value | acullen in Etobicoke
We'd been working on a renovation project to a small living room that grew in scope, as these things do, and ended up requiring a new fireplace with a floor to ceiling mantle, dry bar, and built-in cabinets. While I have a stable of tradesmen for most things, I definitely didn't know anyone who could pull off the level of detail and finish required for this room. The interior designer wanted a granite surround around the fireplace and a granite counter-top for the dry bar so the custom adjoining cabinets and mantle had to be of high quality seeing as I was going to spend that kind of money on the stone. Knowing no-one who could make the cabinets I was referred to Black Forest Woodworking and its owner Istvan (Steve) who's shop was not far away in Mississauga. Steve worked with our designer from the initial sketches and produced a quote the next day. Steve gave us options on wood and finish that would affect the price but even the most expensive wood and finish was within our original budget and after a couple of meetings my wife and I felt it was a good fit and we hired Black Forest. The finished product was absolutely fabulous, beyond my expectations, and was finished on-time. It is now the show-piece in our home. I would, without reservation, recommend Black Forest for any cabinetry or fine woodworking projects. Excellent work, excellent value too. The owner, Steve, is very nice. He even brought me goulash for lunch once.
Custom audio/visual cabinet and custom dining room cabinets.
Black Forest was exceptional! | Andrew - Etobicoke
Black Forest, built three pieces for us. First was a custom cabinet to house our TV, stereo equipment combined with a fireplace mantel. It is truly beautiful and looks amazing in our basement. The second project were two custom dining room cabinets. The entire project was flawless from napkin design to final placement in the dining room. I strongly recommend Black Forest for all your custom cabinets, bathroom vanities, fireplace mantel ... etc.

fireplace mantel with built in side shelves and office filing cabinet
Craftsmanship at its best!!! | joanne romano in Etobicoke
Impressed would be an understatement when describing the craftsmanship of Black Forest Woodworking. Steve (the owner) takes the time to help design a piece of furniture that will custom fit in your home. He is extremely meticulous when designing and installing. I was amazed at how many times he would measure a piece to ensure that it fit so exact that you would have thought the built-ins were already a feature of the house. Not only is he very exact in his measurements and installation, but he is also conscientious in how he leaves your home....CLEAN. We absolutely adore our mantel and side built ins. The custom made filing cabinet meets out office needs. If your looking for an honest family run business that prides themselves in their work, then Black Forest Woodworking is the company for you.
excellent job | DANNY YIANNAKIS in Mississauga
Steve did an excellent job on our fireplace mantel and built in cabinets on either side. His workmanship is impeccable and he is truly a master craftsman. He helped us go thru various designs and was patient with us until we were absolutely sure about what we wanted. We have since recommend him to our friends who have complimented us on the work that he has done. Steve takes pride in his work and it truly shows!
Fireplace & Surround Shelving
Steve from Black Forest Woodworking | rose in Brampton
We were looking for someone to renovate our outdated brick fireplace in our family room for 3 years. Not only were we given run around by people, we were quoted prices that were more than double and some triple. A friend recommended Steve from Black Forest and immediately we felt confident that we could trust him to do the job. Very nice and down to earth and professional, he didn't talk down to us and brought lots of pictures. He gave recommendations based on his experience which we were very happy with. We will be adding more custom cabinetry to our home in the future and we can't imagine hiring anyone else to do the job. We've gotten so many compliments on the design and workmanship and we have no hesitation at all in recommending Steve to our family and friends. Don't bother going to anyone else…you will be very happy with the service.
Fireplace mantle, bar and wall unit
Exceptional workmanship | sdesouza
Steve's work was flawless and he has a wonderful eye for detail. We initially hired him to build a fireplace mantle, but we liked his work so much that we called him back to build a bar and wall unit. When it was completed, it is exactly what we envisioned. Steve was very neat and cleaned up well after the jobs were complete.
