“Don is a conscientious and friendly craftsman who finishes projects on time and with a commitment to excellent quality. 
His woodworking talent is a rare find-he has refinished several pieces for my family, including our kitchen cabinets and has also built a custom bathroom vanity for us-his work never disappoints!” ~Linda, Orton ON



We couldn’t help but admire Don’s knowledge and appreciation of the history and original craftsmanship of our pieces. He offered advice and followed up with outstanding results. The work was done on time, as promised and returned with TLC. My Grandparent’s dining suite will be admired and treasured for many generations to come!” ~Annette, Belwood


I love everything he has made for me! Every piece is excellent quality. Everytime people come into the house and see it, they ask where I got it-it’s obvious it doesn’t come from a store-he listened to me and did everything I asked.  One of our favorite pieces is a bathroom vanity for me out of Cherry wood and it’s gorgeous! Everything he’s made was finished on time, and well worth the wait! “~Lynn, Shelburne

The Fergus Furniture guy Don Walser is a highly talented woodworker/cabinet maker. Whether you need a small repair like a chair reglued or have a more challenging project like an heirloom table that needs a new leg and refinishing, Don’s your guy.

Don has done several masterful repairs for me over the years-repairs for damage I thought was irreversible to pressed-back chairs using his carving skills, rejointing table tops, matching stains on cupboards, regluing bonnet chests whole rebuilding drawer slides and drawers, turning new legs and spindles…just to list a few!

Don comes from a great line of furniture makers. His grandfather was superintendent at the renowned Krug Furniture Company in Kitchener Ontario, in the 1920’s and 30’s. Don’s Father ran the highly successful Roy Walser Refinishing in Fergus for decades and has passed-on his wealth of knowledge and skill set to Don.I highly recommend Don to anyone looking for quality refinishing, repairs to antique furniture or anyone considering custom-built tables or cabinetry

Whether working with a bandsaw, lathe, router, chisel or sprayer-you can trust Don Walser-the “Fergus Furniture Guy”-experienced, talented, friendly and fair. ~Paul


Don is an extremely talented woodworker. He’s done several pieces for me, and some of the transformations have been so dramatic that it really is like getting a brand new piece of furniture! He is very trustworthy, and does top-notch work. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for someone to restore their precious furniture, family heirloom pieces, or to create something new! ~Marna Fergus, ON
