Cliff Spencer


We’ve been in the design business for over 30 years as a manufacturer/supplier and a specifier/purchaser/contractor. It’s very hard to find a business who is equal amounts craftman, businessman, and professional. Cliff embodies all of these qualities and has provided us with excellent service for our own offices as well as for our numerous design projects. Our clients come back to us consistently with positive feedback for their work.

We’ve been under construction on our home for three years now, so I feel like I speak with some authority when I say that we’ve had a range of experiences with craftspeople from the ridiculously disappointing to the sublimely satisfying. Our experience with Cliff falls firmly in the latter: He has that rare combination of vision, precision, talent and skill that make him a true artist with wood. Beyond that, he is an utter delight as a person—as collaborative or as independent as may fit a client’s style… And I knew when I first saw him get to work that his expectations for himself were higher than my own, and that I could set him free in the house to do the work without a second thought. That is just what I did, and the results were stunning. I would recommend him to anyone for the smallest or largest of jobs.

In the hectic and crazed business of remodeling, it is comforting to know that people like Cliff Spencer exist. I knew from the moment I met him that I was in good hands. He set my mind at ease by his attention to detail to the very end of the job. I have never worked with a skilled craftsperson who cared so much about his art and making sure the client is happy.

Just wanted to let you know that we moved in upstairs and are LOVING the wall of wardrobe art you created. Our lives have been transformed. Each time we walk into the room we feel a lot of joy.

The custom furniture Cliff Spencer made for the Casa del Mar Sea Wellness Spa is exquisite and integral to the success of the space. Cliff’s attention to detail and commitment to his client is impressive and invaluable. It was a pleasure working with him and I look forward to many more collaborations.

We have been staring at the dining table, just enjoying it. Thank you for helping us design and build it. We will have many years of enjoyment and have no doubt that there will be endless raves.

Cliff’s work is original, beautiful and perfectly crafted. He created a desk for me that is a work of art and completely functional. I came to him with some ideas, but we ended up collaborating, because he had BETTER ones. He was patient and creative.

When I saw Cliff Spencer’s wood creations I was very impressed by their beauty, style, and workmanship. I immediately commissioned him to design a music stand for me. The result is a masterful work of art made with wonderous choice of woods, beautiful style, and precise detail. I enjoy it daily.

Wow! is what I say out loud every time I look out at our deck to see our beautiful benches. The time & care Cliff took with us was above & beyond from conception to finish. He is meticulous and so very talented. Whatever woodwork you might need, I would without hesitation recommend Cliff Spencer—he is the best, and his easy going manner makes the entire process that much more enjoyable.
