Fireplace mantel and built in wall unit

We hired Matthew to design and build our fireplace mantel and built-in wall unit and could not be happier. He was very professional to work with, we explained what we wanted and he provided us with various design options and an upfront quote. There were no hidden costs. The work itself is very high quality, we are so pleased with the end result and have received many compliments. We would not hesitate recommending Matthew.

Built in entertainment unit.

Matthew was very professional. He provided a thorough detailed quote and description of work needed. He also acted as a liaison with electricians and painters during project. He followed up after to make sure we were satisfied. His carpentry is excellent. Will definitely use again and recommend to all.

Dining room built in cabinet

We hired Matt to create a dining room built in unit to blend in with our 1929 wainscoting. We were looking for a unit which would house our wine glasses and more importantly - our poker chips! Matt created a gorgeous cabinet - including drawers sturdy enough to easily take the weight of the poker chips. We are thrilled with how the cabinetc turned out - we highly recommend Matt - attention to detail, he had excellent suggestions and provided detailed drawings before starting our job. We will use him again!

Fireplace mantel and surround

We hired Matthew to create and install a custom surround mantel for our gas fireplace. Matthew helped us with the design and ensured the surrounding woodwork met the specifications for the gas fireplace.
Matthew created the surround and mantel offsite so the install was quick and seamless. No mess! He delivered on time and on budget. We love the design and the small touches he gave it to fit the existing mill work in the room. He is a joy to work with and we’ll hire him again in the future.

Custom Cabinets and woodworking

I have been a renovator in the Toronto area since 1996.
I have asked to Matt create custom cabinets for my customers for many years, and all have been very happy with his professionalism, work ethic and skills. The finished projects always look great.

Entertainment Bench

Matthew Tormey designed, built and installed an entertainment bench for our basement den for us to place all of our sound system components, including custom drawers to fit CD's and all the wiring for our flat TV just above it. We reviewed several designs which he developed for our review so there were no surprises! He helped us shop for barn wood (on a Sunday) for the top of the bench. He assembled the top by joining pieces from several different barn boards. He lacquered the top about five times to get it smooth. We are pleased!

Custom built-in height-adjustable desk

I contracted Matthew to construct a custom built-in desk and cabinets. The design is pretty unique: the desk is electronically height-adjustable, and the counter-top is made of Corian. Matthew was patient and thoughtful during the lengthy design phase and ultimately produced a build that met my high expectations. Highly recommended!

Thanks for your kind review. You definitely had a clear picture of what you wanted - there were a number of elements which needed to be incorporated into a small space which presented a number of challenges. It was quite satisfying to be able to put everything together in a way that met your needs and tastes.

Built-ins and Fireplace Mantle

We hired Matt to create two walls of built-ins, and a fireplace mantle in our family room, and truly could not have been more pleased with him. We are complimented daily on his work. He is conscientious, meticulous in his artistry, extremely reliable, unexpectedly tidy, and a pleasure to be around. He was patient with us in designing the concept before he started building, and then was present daily until finished. The finished product is absolutely stunning. We will most certainly be hiring him in the future. We have never had the pleasure of dealing with a more talented and likeable craftsman. Very strongly recommend.

Building stairs, shelving and fireplace

Matthew removed old stairs and built new ones. He even stained the top of each stair to look like the hard wood floors. He also built shelving under the stairs for which we continuously receive compliments. He made great use of the space. In addition, he rebuilt the fireplace mantle to suit our style. He was professional at all times - he included computerized sketches of the work prior to beginning. He was always clean and courteous. I wish everyone showed the same respect and had the same degree of craftsmanship. I would highly recommend him.

Custom built-ins

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

We have hired Matt to complete many woodworking projects for us over the years. Recently, we had him build two custom built-ins incorporating several types of storage including hanging space, drawers and shelving. The overall style of the cabinetry fits in seamlessly with that of our house. Part of the project included combining the space from two existing closets in order to maximize the storage space in one of the bedrooms. As as result, we lost some linen storage in the hallway. Matt's corner cabinet linen storage solution was perfect and adds a beautiful focal point in our hallway. Matt also effectively managed several other contractors in order to complete an overall cosmetic facelift for our house. Matt is highly skilled, prompt, clean and reliable. We have no hesitation recommending him for any woodworking project. Barry and Joan
