“As newcomers to the valley, we were unsure what assistance to expect in fabricating additional shelving and desk area in the very constrained available space. On our two completed built-in pieces Barclay exceeded expectations for solving the awkward but required design features, matching existing surrounding finishes, and delivering the visually clean, contemporary detailing desired. It was such an absolute pleasure to work with him in all respects that we regret not having more projects for his shop. . And it must be telling that his active workshop is maintained as neatly as our extremely well-ordered apartment.”

Dale & Peter Coxe, AIA, Ketchum


“I’ve been working with Barclay for over 10 years and both he and his work represent excellence! Barclay designed every piece with precision, great communication, and always delivered promptly. That’s why I’ve never shopped for another builder… if something works.. repeat the successful action.”

“We met Barclay nearly 20 years ago when we needed a bed made. We have been together ever since! He has done very small projects from refinishing our kitchen table or recreating a bench, to large projects like designing and building the media center for our den. His design and finish work is impeccable, as well as his completion time. He listens to what it is you want, and responds to your concerns and questions with professionalism. We would never hesitate to use Barclay, or recommend his work.”

“Thanks for all your hard work and effort you put into our furniture. We’ve gotten so many comments on our TV/stereo piece. We couldn’t be happier. Thanks!”

“We built a house in Elkhorn 1999, and were very fortunate to find Sun Valley Woodworks in our own backyard. Barclay and his crew captured the exact western theme we looking for to complete our new home. We knew from his local reputation and body of work that he was a craftsman of the highest quality, but we were surprised and impressed with the diversity and range of furnishings he could produce for us. From fly rod holders to fish benches, dining tables to deck furniture, bunk beds to barstools, coffee tables to canoe paddles, we were absolutely thrilled with everything he so timely delivered. And it was all built to our specifications of size, style, color, and hardware. If there’s a limit to what he can make in that shop of his, we never found it.”

“We have engaged the services of Sun Valley Woodworks to design and build bookcases, an entertainment center, a desk, and other furniture. Without reservation, we recommend Sun Valley Woodworks based on the exceptional service, creative design, and quality of finish – a terrific value!”

“It’s always a pleasure to work with Barclay and his crew at Sun Valley Woodworks. They are very professional, and I’ve never been disappointed with their finished product”

Margaret Scott, designer           Ketchum, Idaho


“Sun Valley Woodworks has made my design life so much easier…. Barclay Barnett is professional from the first phone call to the final delivery. Every job he undertakes he puts a great deal of time into the design, fabrication and “details” of the piece which is critical to a successful and perfect installation. Barclay is able to foresee hidden problems and concerns, and address them before the client would ever know. Barclay and the entire crew are fantastic when it comes to timely communication – to me that is one of the most important parts of “custom” furniture. No job is too small, nor too large, the same amount of attention to detail is given to each and every job. I’ve worked with Barclay for over 10 years, both for clients and myself personally, in the greater Seattle area as well as Ketchum & SunValley, Idaho  and never been disappointed in any piece that has come out of his shop. Sun Valley Woodworks is the best.”
