Testimonials & Reviews
After years of having procrastinated a kitchen renovation we finally committed to All Star Woodworking this fall. Since our original cabinets were in excellent condition, but suffering from that ubiquitous 80’s look of laminate and wood trim, we opted for a refacing. Not only was it less expensive, but ecologically it was more “green”, adding considerably less debris to our accumulating landfills. Now, our only regret was not having done it all years ago.
Thank you All Star for transforming our kitchen into a lovely, modern and relevant space. Laminate was replaced with solid wood doors painted in a soft white, and creative touches were added throughout. A boring cup ledge became an integrated wine rack, and a previously unusable space became an attractive bookshelf for our cookbooks. Pull out drawers were added, as were striated glass doors to add light and interest. Every detail was meticulously tended to, and it’s amazing how a few clever changes can so dramatically alter the look and utility of a room.
All Star is the ultimate in professional service. The very fabric of this well-run company threads its way from its owner, Peter, and his very talented designer Krista, to its truly skilled craftsmen. Peter oversaw it all, taking precise measurements and addressing any concerns. Krista proved invaluable in helping our choices of cabinet style, paint color, and cabinet hardware. We cannot overstate how much we appreciated her constant attention to all details, her prompt responses to any queries, her computer updates of what to expect, and above all, her impeccably good taste in all matters. She was a joy to work with.
As for the actual installation itself, Gabor and Flavio worked diligently and neatly and completed all in the promised 5 days. They were a pleasure to have in our home and their work is second to none.
Needless to say, we recommend All Star without reservation. We could not be more pleased with our new kitchen. Kudos to all concerned!

…and as the page reads… “Since 1978…reputation for providing outstanding craftsmanship, prompt expert installation…and kind and courteous service” My recent experience was ALL that. The kitchen needed a “cabinetry refresh” and on the stellar recommendation of close friends who had worked with All Star …I gave Jim Doherty a call. From that point forward…to final, installed product… nothing but professionalism, punctuality, acute attention to detail and complete “service with a smile”… all hallmarks of a business that is well-run with employees who revel in what they do. Should you be considering making a call to All Star…make it. You’ll be pleased that you did.

My husband and I just bought a condo and wanted to have a new kitchen installed. A friend recommended All Star to us. We went to the showroom, which is also where the cabinets are made and were quite impressed. We met with Krista and discussed what we wanted done. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We received an estimate and thought this was quite fair, so we hired them.
They delivered on everything promised. The quality of their workmanship is superior. The attention to detail is exceptional. We are so pleased with the outcome and would like to thank Krista, Peter, Les and the whole team for the wonderful job they did.
We truly love our new kitchen!

We could not be happier with our All Star Kitchen. Peter and team were very patient and meticulous in executing upon our vision. They worked well with our contractor and have been tremendously responsive in responding to the smallest tweaks. Their work is top quality and it shows. We definitely recommend them.

I had Kitchen Cabinet Refacing done in 2012. The entire staff, especially Krista Andry, the Senior Design and Sales Associate, were very professional, friendly and knowledgeable and made it a painless experience. All the work was done in a timely fashion. I had all white cabinets and fairly new white appliances and had some specific ideas on what I wanted the kitchen to look like, since I was keeping the appliances. With Krista’s help and suggestions, I was able to achieve the exact results I was hoping for. They also built a beautiful wood spice rack that fit perfectly on the inside of the cabinet door and added crown moulding on the top of the existing cabinet structure. I love my “NEW” cabinets and have and will continue to refer friends and family to All*Star Woodworking.

We just finished our second set of renovations with All Star and both experiences were amazing. In addition to their stellar and meticulous craftsmanship, the company conducts business with the utmost integrity. They always meet their deadlines, estimates and follow through on all their agreements. The cabinetry work they have done in our home is nothing less than superior on all levels – from the built-ins in all of our bedrooms and dens to the work they recently completed in our kitchen. They clearly take pride in their work and were not satisfied until we were satisfied. We wholeheartedly recommend All Star for anyone needing top quality cabinetry work in any room of their house.

All Star Woodworking is a small company with big Talents and Excellent Work Ethics. We refaced our kitchen cabinets, replaced the countertop and the kitchen sink.
Krista is not only a gifted designer but also a patient and considerate person. She spent hours helping us decide the right materials, colors, shape and details for each item:
from cabinet doors, to drawers, to the texture of glass on fronts of doors… Then Peter came and verified all measurements (they were perfect from the first time) and the work starting day was decided. Everything went as promised. Workers came early, they showed competence and great attention to every detail. The whole project was finished exactly as promised, in time! Workers were respectful, prompt, and every person acted in a professional manner. Now we have a beautiful kitchen….no wonder everyone who comes in says..”WOW!”

All Star Woodworking refaced our kitchen cabinets a little over ten years ago and we have been delighted with them. Recently we had to modify one of them and again you came through. All Star responded to our request quickly, resized and reinstalled the cabinet. Today we are admiring our kitchen once again.
One of the cabinet makers who did the resize/reinstall remembered doing the original job and commented on how well everything had stood up to ten years of pretty hard use.
Thanks again for a job well done.

Our new wall unit is outstanding! The quality of the construction, the attention to detail, the fastidious installation: it is so at home in it’s space. Thank you for working with us to evolve the design, and kudos to the rest of the All Star team for making it happen. It’s a fabulous piece of furniture.

I wanted to thank you all for a truly stellar job on our kitchen. Krista, you were so instrumental in helping us shape our vision. The cabinet refacing gave a much needed lift to the look of our kitchen. Though we had white cabinets before, the ones you have made for us have a bright, yet soft, look. The custom island that you built for us has made a huge difference. I love that I can use my electric appliances on it. The pull-out drawer for the garbage is fabulous. The extra drawer space and shelving underneath has cleared our counter top space making all of the space highly functional. The look is bright, clean, cohesive, and timeless which is exactly what I hoped for. Thanks so much again. We look forward to our next project with you.

All Star is one of those gems of a company that appear from time to time. In my experience there aren’t too many of them. Adequate companies, yes. But companies that stand out, just a few. And you never know what sector they will appear in. All Star seems to be led by the motto of “We aim to please” doing so both in the personal contact and manufactured product spheres. They were responsive, helpful, courteous, timely and priced their services well. The quality of the work they did on our kitchen was outstanding. They left us with kitchen cabinets that look like they are ready for a glossy magazine photo shoot.

We were so impressed with Krista and Joe we hired them to also plan and construct the bookcases in my husband’s home office; shelving in the office storage room; design and construct bedroom drawers and shelves for one bedroom; design and construct a complete amoire wall unit of drawers, shelves, and doors for a big bedroom wall; design and construct a 3-computer workspace; design and construct the cabinet and sink area for the children’s art space; and design and construct a full wall unit housing a TV and lots of shelves and base cabinets. Each area was installed when promised and when some adjustments were needed, Joe made them without any issues. When a few of the door closures broke, Joe came right away to replace them with no questions asked. All Star is the real deal and does a quality job. You will be happy you chose them.

I contacted All Star by phone initially and spoke to Krista. We talked over the work I needed done (I originally planned on just doing the counter tops) and I emailed her a sketch of the kitchen layout; she responded promptly with a quote for the counter tops. I set up an appointment to come to their showroom/shop to discuss in person and look at laminate samples. Krista gave me a tour of the shop as well.
I set up an appointment for Krista and Peter to come to my home and see the kitchen for themselves. During that meeting we added a few more things to the project including the drawer under the cook top, etc. Gave them a deposit and discussed time frame for fabrication and installation.
We arranged an installation date once I had my new cook top and sink. Peter and his guys showed up on time and went right to work. They spent a full day doing the work and did an outstanding job. There were several tricky details involved and they dealt with each one very nicely.
The finished job looks great. These guys are actual craftsmen. Peter is amazingly sharp on noticing details and discussing any concerns ahead of time. Krista is wonderful and very professional. I couldn’t be happier. I would hire them again without hesitation.

We had a very unusually shaped space under a staircase that was going unused. All Star Woodworking came up with a design that used a large triangular shaped cabinet and several larger drawer. They suggested different design and material options that would accommodate different prices. Joe brought various doors and molding choices to the house so we could select items that fit in with our existing doors and trim. Most importantly the whole area was framed in with molding to connect directly with the floor molding so the built-in looked as if it was an original part of our 125 year old house.
