ellejelle’s review 

Don’t let his youth fool you. Corey Morgan is a true professional – from the bidding process, design, communication, follow through and delivery. I would use two words to describe Corey Morgan: a craftsman and a gentleman. He was sensitive to the natural materials as though apprenticed by Nakashima himself executing my designs and ideas impeccably. As a designer, I have worked with many trades. I often hear how designs cannot be executed, it’s not done that way or it’s not the style. It’s the exceptional craftsman that will work with a designer rather than against the designer. It’s thrilling to problem solve and brainstorm with someone that works towards solutions. Corey was able to take my rough sketches and even rougher pieces of incredibly heavy wood and refine them into elegant pieces of art. As a designer, I would not hesitate to use him on future projects or recommend him for the most complex interior design projects. The results of the two pieces Corey Morgan has completed for me were refined, timeless and absolutely stunning.

tpitell’s review for Slab Table 

We recently had a table made by Corey Morgan and we love it!
Corey was very easy to work with and had the table done
in a very timely manner.
He was very helpful with suggestions for our new table.

When we told Corey what we wanted he took the time to go through
many slabs and found exactly what we were looking for.

We are in the process of ordering a mantle beam from him and
would recommend him to anybody.

kramlee’s review for live edge walnut table 

Corey Morgan did a fabulous job on building a 10′ x 4′ walnut dining table for my lake home. From the beginning to the end, Corey was very meticulous, attentive, and respectful. My wife and I were extremely pleased with both his work and service.

daryltibbs’ review for custom made desk

Corey was more than helpful in the design process of our writers desk. He was very helpful in showing us many different slabs in which to pick our desktop, and then worked with us on our design until we had everything just right. He is extremely creative and has many great ideas. We were more than impressed when it finally arrived at our home and will be a lasting treasure in our home for decades to come. We will definitely be working with Corey in the future and look forward to many more heirloom pieces to dress up our home!

dkaplan91’s review for Dinging Table and Dresser

I had Corey Morgan build a custom dining room table and dresser, to my specifications. He worked with me closely to replicate a family heirloom, coordinating his selection of wood and how each piece would be laid out. The two pieces were finished as agreed and on schedule. We are very pleased with his work, and do not hesitate to refer others to Corey and order more furniture from Corey in the future.

thefells’ review for “Art Nouveau Fireplace Suround”

Corey did a fantastic job designing and building a fireplace surround for the library in our new construction house. Very easy to work with, and was able to translate our thoughts into a beautiful design idea. The wood he has access to seems to be of a quality far beyond what other makers have. I would hire him for another project.

pammcgillm’s review

Corey was a pleasure to work with on our project. We had certain ideas in mind and he did a great job helping us through all of the options to ultimately make the right decision on the final product. He always kept us in the loop concerning the progress of the work and was more than willing to make trips out to our house to ensure he had the correct dimensions for the bar tops. He would quickly answer any questions we had as they came up and was also great at supplying pictures for us to see as the bar tops progressed. Our project came out better than we could have ever hoped for and I would chose Corey for any other work we will need in our house. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!

Terry M’s review for “Live Edge Cherry Dining Table with Live Edge Trestle Base” 

The table is stunning. Corey was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. He sent us pictures of various options, kept us updated regularly, and shipped it promptly, carefully and well. Perfect!

Justyn Comer’s review for “Walnut Live Edge Trestle Table” 

Exactly as described. Beautiful! Very happy with it.

Priscilla Saynay’s review for live edge floating shelf 

Corey has been nothing but amazing. So patient and details. He made our shelf to a perfection. Even though it was not the original plan we had, we truly love it! Thank you Corey!

Priscilla Saynay’s review for “Live Edge Cherry Slab Table with Barn Beam Base” 

Thank you so much Corey! Our table is amazing and we simply love love love it! Everything that we want. Looking forward to our live edge floating shelf from you!

Corey is that rare combination of a talented and collaborative artist. I was looking for a craftsman to build a raw edged shelf for my kitchen. Corey promptly provided estimates, endless photos of wood slabs, photos of sample brackets, talked with me about the overall design aesthetic for the new space- all virtually, but still his warmth and interest shone through.

In the end, he completed the work a week ahead of schedule and delivered it to my door for a fraction of what a delivery service would have charged.

And the shelf is spectacular! I cannot wait to work with him again, I’m dreaming up projects as I type this review

pmg2001’s review for “Live Edge Cherry Desk with Dovetailed Waterfall Edge” 

Live Edge Cherry Desk with Dovetail Waterfall Edge….All happened on time, on budget and fully met/exceeded my expectations. We designed together a very beautiful and functional desk. Corey added personal aesthetic, craftsmanship and artistry. I am very happy with the result. He also went above and beyond in getting the finished product to me. Highly recommend all to reach out to Corey.

abriggs73’s review for “Reclaimed Chestnut Cabinet Doors”

I was exceptionally satisfied with the services provided by Corey on our reclaimed chestnut cabinet doors. I’m an engineer who deals with contractors constantly in my line of work – thus I’m very demanding and quite fussy when it comes to craftsmen and tradesmen. In other words, contractors that act like they don’t need my work really tick me off. First let me say that Corey was the consummate professional; he returned calls and e-mails promptly, and completed his work on time and on budget. Secondly, he is a true craftsman when it comes to woodworking, and our doors were the highest quality. Corey has an eye for color, tone and texture that the average person does not, which was very helpful to us in the decision process. I give him my highest recommendation, and we will be using him again for slab wood countertops and hardwood furniture.

angrbrain’s review for “Live edge Walnut Bench with Shelf” 

This was a custom order, the item that I actually received is the other walnut bench with shelf you can find in master’s portfolio. Corey was fantastic throughout the process, easy to reach, quick communication; gave valuable input, suggestions and was able to accommodate all my requests. Work was ahead of schedule. Shipped quickly and arrived well packaged.

Bench is absolutely stunning in quality of workmanship, materials and appearance beyond any imagination.

Thank you!

Corey created the most unique bed and nightstands for our new home. The quality is impeccable and we are very pleased with his work. This kind of quality takes time, so patience is a virtue. But we were not in a hurry. The price was fair and what would be expected for this caliber of craftsmanship. I have seen much higher prices for furniture that is not as beautiful or unique. Corey is creative and really listens to his customers.

We love the quarter saw white oak coffee table Corey made for us. If you are into wood these guys know their stuff and can do anything custom you’d like. I wish I could upload photos on, the table looks amazing in our space and the live edge is one of a kind and unique.

fredryan’s review for cherry table 

Awesome live edge cherry table, great response time, good communication, great quality would highly recommend!

I researched many and Corey had the best designs and excelled at customer service.

dtoombs1’s review for dining table

Corey was professional in every manner, from estimating the work through to flexible scheduling for pick-up. During the course of the project, Corey had questions about my preferences for a dining table and he provided images to guide decision-making. The quality of the craftsmanship was outstanding and I am extremely pleased with the end result. Very important to me, Corey communicated proactively about the status of the project and was customer-focused in every regard. Five stars easily.

charlesflach’s review for bar top 

We hired Corey to make a walnut bar top. He communicated well, was willing to work with our ideas, and completed the project on time. The quality of the work is impressive. We would use Corey again for our wood working needs.

Tomika F’s review for live edge table

Our live edge table is a work of art! I was a little apprehensive about not seeing it in person prior to purchase. Corey provided us with pictures and samples and videos. He gave exceptional customer service. Corey was easy to work with and truly wanted us to be happy with our project.

Dan Brockett’s review for “Live Edge Dining Table”

It was by chance that we stumbled across the CustomMade site, and serendipity that we found Corey at Corey Morgan Woodworks. We had been searching out a craftsman in our area for sometime without success. Once we saw the photos of Corey’s past work, we knew that our quest for a artisan was over. Corey was quick to respond to our inquiry, and the process on selecting a style and slab was clear and concise throughout. His vision on the table top construction was described well, and we are so happy that we trusted his suggestion. It could not have turned out any better for us! Corey was very accommodating on our completion time frame, and pickup schedule. We wanted to have the table in our home by Thanksgiving, and he made it happen! We would recommend Corey’s work to anyone interested in a custom, quality, locally sourced piece, you will not be sorry.

Chris’ review For “Live Edge Slab Dining Table”

Corey is an artist and a professional. He was more than willing to answer any question, send samples, and suggest options. He is also a complete perfectionist, and the table he made is absolutely beautiful. I am thrilled to have it in my home, and to have had the chance to work with Corey.

emschoeb

Corey, worked with us one on one to help us decide exactly what we wanted. He spent a lot of his time initially prior to the build discussing all the options and what would look best. There was communication through the entire build. He knows his stuff! What a wonderful experience. This is a masterpiece and those guys truly are artists at their craft. Top notch! Highly recommended! I am going to have them design me more furniture. Everyone compliments our our table, bench seats and chairs when they walk in the kitchen. 100% American Made! That was important to us! From the trees to the mill to the artist! They are absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much guys. I appreciate what you have done for our family and we are excited for the next piece we are going to get!

I am the lucky owner of the Elm Burl and Walnut bar in the photo albums pages. Corey was great to work with. I stopped in to the Hardwood Mall and left my name and contact information. He called me back and we discussed what I was looking for. He made sure he had a real understanding of the concept I was trying to accomplish. He then sent me some drawings, we agreed on a price and he did the rest. I was able to see pictures of the lumber before it was cut so he could make sure we were both on the same page. The bar is exactly what we were looking for. Corey is a real craftsman and you can tell when you talk to him that he really loves what he does. I am looking forward to working with Corey and Corey Morgan Woodworks on other projects in the coming year. I truly can’t say enough good things about my whole experience!!!!

Corey Morgan at Corey Morgan Woodworks will build you high quality wood pieces. My husband and I ordered desks for our offices and he built me a credenza to match my desk. They are very unique pieces that keep the natural edge and create a beautiful centerpiece in the rooms.

Custom made wooden desk stops people in their tracks when they visit my home and walk past my office! Now I have to keep from cluttering it up. Corey is a PLEASURE to deal with, strongly recommend.

We couldn’t be more pleased with every aspect of working with Corey of Corey Morgan Woodworks! With a general idea in my mind about our whole project, I contacted Corey about the possibility of creating a custom counter top for our powder room. I had no sketches, just thoughts. Corey responded quickly to all of my emails with understandable comments and questions. He then welcomed us to his shop to look through the various wood grains and he helped us come to a decision. After giving him general dimensions, Corey created a GORGEOUS live-edge counter top that will surely be the show piece in the powder room. Throughout the process, he communicated quickly and clearly with us, and provided us with a number of options when questions arose. His work is stunning! I feel lucky that we found him.

From beginning to end Corey who is truly a master craftsman listened to my vision and walked me through the process on how he would bring it to life. It was not just a table, or any basic design. It was a gathering place for 16 family members and many guest to my kitchen. Almost 13 feet of Cherry wood in length. The legs came from an old barn complete with crooked nails embedded in them. Pieces of the tree bark are sealed in places along the edges.

Corey crafted a customized walnut bar top. He is a true artisan–it is a spectacular piece that has become the centerpiece of our living area. Every person who visits our home comments on the beauty, elegance and WOW! factor of this piece. Corey was extremely professional, and delivered the work on time and on budget. He is very proud of his craft and has tremendous talent. I would highly recommend Corey and look forward to working with him again in the near future.

We were provided excellent customer service. After our intial discussion of the project, we were provided descriptions and drawings, which were reviewed with us. They provided wood and finishing samplings to help us make the best choices for our needs and budget. Products were completed on time. They were even more beautiful than we imagined. I would highly recommend Corey Morgan Woodworks!

Laura Accettullo 

Corey at Corey Morgan Woodworks was very helpful, professional and delivered a great product! We are a Montessori Center and asked Corey to custom-build a number of birch shelves and tables for our children. We absolutely love his beautiful hand made furniture and have received many compliments on it; the wood grain was lovely and the construction was solid. Corey additionally guaranteed the finish by pledging to come to our location and re-finish if ever needed in the future (our children work with water at the tables!) The furniture was delivered in the time frame needed and Corey worked hard to make this happen for us. Kudos to Corey Morgan Woodworks – we will be happy to do business with this company in the future!

Corey Morgan created the most beautiful table for our 3 season room. The table and bench seating is not only for dining- it is artwork! 5 stars and more if available!!
