I have worked with David Calvin Furniture Studio on multiple projects. David is wonderful to work with. He loves what he does and takes pride in the quality, craftsmanship, and appearance of the pieces of furniture that he builds. David is always enthusiastic, and I appreciate his suggestions because they always make for a better product. If you are looking for someone to build you a beautiful piece of furniture, look no further.

“Working with Dave Calvin is an honest delight. It was a great collaboration that resulted in a beautiful, custom teak powder room vanity. Dave is that hard to find combination of exceptional craftsman and designer. I’m very glad to have worked with Dave and highly recommend his services.”

“While Dave has created many pieces for me, I especially love my bar cart. He took my childhood dining room table and turned it into a unique, functional work of art. Dave’s professionalism and attention to detail is exceptional. He carefully listens to your ideas before beginning a project. And he’s great about sharing updates at each step of the project to be sure you are happy. In the end, I wasn’t happy … I was ecstatic!

“David is a true professional. I contracted him to build a new kitchen island made of wine crates. David worked with me on some unique requirements. It turned out really well, and I get many compliments on it. I highly recommend David.”

“As new residents to St. Petersburg, we were interested in finding pieces created by local artisans for our new home. We saw David Calvin’s exquisite woodwork at a gallery and called him to ask about custom pieces. He invited us to his studio and led us through a series of design questions with photos and wood samples. He asked about our expectations and told us how he could execute wonderful results to match. The quality of our hall table and matching mirror is wonderful. We are very pleased to have our very own David Calvin original.”

“David Calvin is a master craftsman and, best of all, an impeccable listener. He took our 35-year-old dining table and recreated it with secret ‘codes’ incorporated into the table design. For every idea I had, David had two that were better! He was genuinely excited to be a part of my vision. As David made our table, he kept me in the loop throughout the process. Now I’m sitting at this beautifully custom-created table that will never be replaced, nor will there ever be another. It will serve my family for many decades. It makes me happy every day, every meal, every board game, every talk, every wipe down. Thank you, David Calvin!”

“I wanted to give my boyfriend something special: a cigar-box desk. Working with dozens of our cigar boxes, David came up with some great designs. The top of the desk is made of every part of those boxes, encased in wood, and then covered with epoxy. He added wrought iron edges, drawer pulls, and other exceptional details. David called me into his shop to see every step before moving forward. David is wonderful to work with. I love his art and his passion for making beautiful furniture.”
