I read recent reviews hoping it was better but us is not. I went in 2 years ago and the owner was so rude I had to walk out. I have never received such treatment in Atlanta. I will never, ever go back.
I
will give my money to someone who cares about the customer.

Poor job, rude and condescending. I don't who this guy thinks he is, but he should know customers do not like being treated this way. After after dealing with that, my chair was loose again after 6 months.

I wholeheartedly concur with the numerous negative reviews on this place. The owner is extremely rude and condescending. I have never been treated like this in my 40+ years at a retail establishment. I was truly in shock after my visit, I drove around in disbelief and am happy to be able to vent here, and felt very vindicated after reading the plethora of negative reviews that are all over the internet....not just on this site! DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR BUSINESS.

If you want to be belittled and treated with no respect, then by all means. Pay a visit to this guy's trashy looking building, and leave in shock. It is almost like the soup guy on Seinfeld... I thought it was a joke.... I don't care how long he has been in business, how many awards he has...the owner Hal Wickey, must be a very very unhappy person. It shows in the way he treated me. I barely got any words in, when I was asking simple questions. Try this... google these two key words "woodpride" and "rude" ....I was very comforted by the pages of results that came up...meaning that it was NOT me alone... others have been offended by this prick. He doesn't deserve your business.

Pros: zero zilch nadda

Cons: Customer service

Woodrpide did an expert refinishing work on two great-grandmother's chairs. Am well-pleased with Mr. Wickey's work! Executed in less time than promised, as well.

I agree with the review below. I inherited a beautiful chest from my grandmother which had been water damaged. I took it to Woodpride to be refinished because I did not know of any other options. When I asked the owner to restore the chest to its original finish, he became rude and insisted he knew better and that it should be done in a different color and different finish. I left feeling upset but hoped for the best. Needless to say, the chest turned out OK but it certainly is not what I wanted and not nearly as beautiful as it was originally.

This place only thrives dew to its good location. The attitude is atrocious and the owner is rude and narrow minded in his
knowledge of the variety of finishes that are possible. After calling woodpride, any other service will seem incredibly plesant and helpful. Try someone like Buckhead Finishing Studio, or Furniture Restoration specialists, to see what a good restoration service is like.

Hal Wickey and his Woodpride Hand Stripping furniture refinishing business far exceeded my expectations in quality of work, timeliness and information about their processes. Mr. Wickey completed the work in one week and restored the beauty of four old tables and a second-hand cedar chest. I highly recommend this business for your fine pieces of furniture. M. McDonald

I had a cedar chest refinished and they did a great job. The workmanship and customer service was excellent and the price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend using them.

These people have done all my repairs and refinishing for years. They have been polite and professional at all times. I rarely find people who do exactly what they promise and for a reasonable price. They once replaced a caned seat for much less than everyone else I who quoted me prices. Mr. Wickey even did a free pickup to help my wheel chair bound brother.

I called to inquire about purchasing a custom dining room set. I proceeded to describe what I was looking for and within a few moments of the conversation he interrupted me and told me to go to an auction. I explained that I had a very specific idea of what i wanted and he then said that I never know what I would find at an auction. As though my request to have one built was just ridiculous! I asked him if he was upset about something because his tone was so abrasive and condescending at minimum. He then went to list his many achievements about being in business for 34 years and that I haven't been in business for that long and I don't have Best of Atlanta awards etc. I never told this man what I did for a living or what type of money I make, but he assumed that I was just some straggler off the street. I don't normally post to these review sites although I have used Kudzu a number of times. I was pretty amazed to see that WoodPride only had a handful of reviews and they were all negative. Especially for him to have been rated Best in Atlanta the past few years according to him...Go figure.

In a nutshell..unless you want to be talked down to and treated with disrespect I suggest you seek elsewhere for your woodworking needs.

Pros: NONE

Cons: Customer relations

When I called Woodpride I was barely through my name before the guy on the phone interrupted me and said "just tell me what you have" and then when I did he was extremely condescending and essentially made me feel like an idiot for not telling him exactly what he needed to know. I said "never mind and I don't appreciate your tone at all" and he said "fine" and hung up on me. Dead to me.

Cons: Too much attitude to even consider working with
