Getting Started


Whatever you are looking for, be it a cabinet, piece of furniture or specialty item, the design process starts with a conversation. I design and produce every item to your specifications.

Cabinets and furniture:

If you are located in New Jersey within the following counties:Burlington, Essex, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Somerset, Union or Warren, or the following counties in Pennsylvania:Bucks, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton, or Pike, contact me to set up an appointment at your home, office, or place of business. I will listen to what you need, take measurements, make appropriate suggestions, and then, if requested, I will produce an estimate detailing what you require and how much the project will cost. Next, I will submit an estimate for approval. A drawing or sketch may also be produced, if required for your project, and submitted along with the estimate, or submitted after the fact, for your approval. All estimates are good for thirty (30) calendar days. If you accept within those 30 days, I will ask for a 70% deposit and then, together, we will determine a project schedule. I will submit a final invoice when work is completed. If, during the project, you make a change to the original design or schedule, I will complete a Change Order, which will be submitted to you. The amount of the Change Order will be added to the final invoice. Deposits and final payments can be made by cash, check made out to Philip J. Ridder.

Please note: Estimates are only that, estimates, based on what is seen or known at the time the estimate is completed. I endeavor to be as accurate as possible when it comes to the cost of a project or time needed to complete a project. I will keep you updated as to my progress. If a change in time is required, we will discuss this when necessary. Unless a change order is required, the cost of a project will not change.

Specialty items:

If you are looking for a specialty item such as a gift, a sign, a memorial, or an urn, you can come to my shop, send me an email, or telephone me to discuss what it is you are looking to acquire. Together, we will design what you need. I will tell you what the item(s) will cost. If the amount is acceptable, payment must be made before the item is produced and delivered. Payments can be made via Quickbooks, check or cash. If Quickbooks is used I will send you an electronic invoice, which you can pay using your credit card or bank information (ACH transfer). Convenience fees will be applied to all electronic invoices.
