Don't take our word for it, see what people are saying about Chicone.

When we built our house, Chicone Cabinetmakers did all our trim work, vanities, medicine cabinets, complete kitchen, and other furniture. The quality and craftsmanship was the best we've seen. Vincent was very creative and receptive to our ideas. David, Vincent, Jen, Deb and all the crew helped make our house feel like home, and we made new friends too!

Tom & Roberta (Penn Yan, NY)

We met Vincent at a local art show and were immediately impressed with his work and knowledge. We commissioned him to design and build a mission oak style end table. After visiting our home, he was very prompt quoting a price and giving us a completion date and our piece was delivered ahead of schedule. It is worth a visit to his workshop/studio where you can see his designs and fine workmanship in progress. Vincent is a very accommodating young craftsman who takes into account your ideas and wishes without imposing his own. We are thrilled with our finished table and the entire experience was extremely rewarding!

Robbie & Jim (Ovid, NY)

Doug and I are so pleased with the beautiful oak Windsor chairs that you made for us. We especially appreciate the "extra mile" you took to research a New York Windsor. We had brought you pictures of New England and Lancaster, PA Windsors; never realizing that there is a NY regional styled!!! Your attention to detail is outstanding. We appreciated your follow up also.

Susan & Doug (Horseheads, NY)

In 2001, we decided to do a complete restoration and renovation of our mid 19th century home, so we put our architect's plans out for bid. After we'd spent a few hours listening to the proposal of David Chicone, we decided that Chicone Builders was our only choice. The firm's ideas, originality and commitment were noteworthy and apparent from the outset. In early 2002, the work began-and from total gut to shining restoration six months later, the men from Chicone's came through, doing what they had proposed, and more! They never missed a day even in bad weather; David worked with them; careful planning kept them on task. Every person was always ready to consult, explain and accept changes-working with Chicone Builders was, from start to finish, a superior (and educational) experience. They accomplish the ordinary meticulously; they craft the unusual, especially cabinetry and millwork, with the eyes and hands of artists.

Mary (Watkins Glen, NY)

My wife and I put an addition on our house in 2001. We only needed one more thing to complete our dream: We needed book shelves for cook books, CD storage, a place to but files, a built in desk and also a space for a laptop computer and printer. This piece had to fit along a nine foot wall and we wanted it to go up to the ceiling. A friend of ours knew Vincent and suggested we contact him. Antiques are a passion of ours and we had several ideas floating around. Vincent came to our house to discuss our project, we told him we wanted to mimic some of the aspects of our antique cupboards and stepbacks. After talking to Vincent we realized we also wanted him to use his imagination and ideas as well. Have you ever purchased something, gotten it home and said, this far exceeds anything we have ever imagined. After Vincent installed this beautiful piece of furniture, and I do mean a piece of furniture, that's how we felt. The craftsmanship and the woods are spectacular! The attention to detail, we still come over and stare, thinking WOW!

Jane & David (Corning, NY)

The Serving trays and bowls hand carved out of tigered Maple add warmth and style to our dinning room. The craftsmanship and unique style of Chicone Cabinetmakers creations are second to none.

Rose (Oostburg, WI)

If superior craftsmanship and professionalism is your priority then you need to consider Chicone. Their knowledge, experience and attention to detail far surpass the norm in this industry. With Chicone I always know my project is important and will be done to a very high standard.

John (Watkins Glen, NY)

Lucy (Columbus, MS)

Over the past several years, I have watched Vincent grow into an incredible artisan. His love for unique woods, combined with his woodworking expertise provide all the elements for truly beautiful, one of a kind pieces. Quality craftsmanship and reliability make working with Chicone Cabinetmakers a great experience.

Sallie (Wilmington, DE)

Vincent demonstrates a real appreciation for his material with each piece. He captures the natural beauty of the wood to create a truly unique and inspired work of art.

Georgie (Montour Falls, NY)

We have had Chicone Builders do several projects for us over the years. Those have ranged from foundation repair, to replacing a porch to completely remodeling our kitchen and family room. We have always been extremely pleased with their work and their professionalism. They are at the job site when they say they will be there and if something comes up where they can't be, they always call. Their work is of the highest caliber. We are very happy to recommend them to anyone who is looking for a professional contractor who always does an outstanding job.

Steve & Lynda (Montour Falls, NY)

The custom made five panel dining room doors Vincent created for us fits in perfectly with the existing decor of our carefully restored 1900 Victorian mansion.

Josh (Milwaukee, WI)

My family has been associated with Chicone Builders for over 40 years. The staff has performed many projects on my home over that period, all of which were done to our full satisfaction. As I think back on the service we received, the words which come to mind to describe both staff and workmanship of this company are: professionalism, trustworthiness, durability and reliability of the work done, sensitivity to the customer's needs, willingness to negotiate in favor of the preferences of the customer and promptness in responding to emergencies - above all, long-term dependability and trust.

Mary (Rochester, NY)

Would we use Chicone Builders again? Absolutely, first class workmanship and a first class company.

Bill (Seneca Lake, NY)

Chicone Cabinetmakers built a custom-made desks and library for our home office. They did an excellent job both designing and craftsmanship of our high quality furniture; moreover, everything was completed on time! Our office has become our favorite place in our house. The completed furniture is of such a high quality that we have seen nothing of comparable quality in any showroom. There is now such an easy visual harmony between our custom-made desks and our other furniture that our office has become so comfortable, we spend time there even when we do not have any work to do. Thank you Chicone Cabinetmakers.

Elizabeth & Voytek (Elmira, NY)

Jefferson may have had Dinsmore BUT we have you. We spent all night moving furniture around to best show off the tall desk while it is waiting for its new home. We love it. Such a work of love.PS: We are thinking of our next piece.Thank you.

Patty & Ed (Colts Neck, NJ)

In assembling a team to complete the diverse and challenging exhibit program for the Griffin Discovery Room at Monticello, USA chose Chicone Cabinetmakers to make select pieces of reproduction furniture for the gallery. Led by Vincent Chicone, they did a great job from start to finish. Vincent met us on site in Virginia to measure and discuss the original furniture with Monticello's master carpenter. Back in their shop in Montours Falls New York, they crafted reproductions of Thomas Jefferson's rotating table, rotating chair, and Windsor foot bench. Chicone's fine craftsmanship and attention to detail was surpassed only by their enthusiasm for the project, responsiveness to our needs and the client's satisfaction. Chicone Cabinetmakers was an invaluable asset to our success at Monticello. We look forward to the same success in future partnerships.

Barry

USA worked with Chicone Cabinetmakers (Vincent Chicone) on a project at Thomas Jefferson's estate, Monticello. Vincent was a knowledgeable asset to us and our client, making replica Jeffersonian furnishings for a children's gallery. His craftsmanship was the perfect combination of artistry and structural integrity.
