To anyone interested in commissioning John Varney of  English Country Design,

We have known John Varney for 10 years. He is an expert craftsman. He wood paneled our living room (including a beautiful mantle). He also added wainscoting to the dining room. His work literally transformed the space and made it a “show stopper”.

John has also made several pieces of furniture for us over the years. He made a kitchen table, bakers rack, tv cabinet and bookcase. In 2008 he made a magnificent king size wooden bed with matching side tables. The new items complimented all the other pieces we have in the bed room. The whole room is totally beautiful because of his work.

John is as creative as he is talented. He and his entire staff are very honest, hard working and finish the work in a timely manner. We would use him again and recommend him to anyone.

My wife and I have worked with John Varney and English Country Pine and Design for almost 20 years.  We first came to know him when we bought a dining room table he had made from reclaimed lumber.  Since that time John has designed and made a number of pieces of custom furniture for us.  In addition to the custom furniture, John has contributed to our various remodels by doing custom crown molding and baseboards, trimming out windows, designing and building custom closets, creating a library and office, a wallbed and paneling a ceiling.  We keep going back to English Country Pine and Design because we get exactly what we want, the craftsmanship is impeccable and the experience is a pleasure.  We recommend John and English Country Pine and Design without reservation for folks needing custom furniture and finish carpentry remodeling. 


Bruce and Laura Innes

It has been my pleasure to have known John for over 25 years, during which time John has built some incredible pieces of furniture for my wife and I. John completed a kitchen remodel for us in 2007, it continues to be a source of great pride and enjoyed every day. The craftsmanship and expertise which John and his team bring to every project, no matter what the size or complexity, is always of the highest quality. John is also a very capable designer and draftsman, and has the ability to workout a plan for any area of your home or business that may need furnishing. In an industry where a wrong and expensive choice is easily made, you can be completely confident that you have made the right decision to work with John Varney and English Country Pine. John is honest and trustworthy. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
