To Whom It May Concern:
USA Hockey's National Team Development Program entered its second decade of operation
with the need for update and upgrade our locker room facilities. The NTDP trains the
top 46 under-18 players in the United States each year, and sends them to represent
the country in tournaments all over the World.
Leiden Woodworking did an outstanding job of working with us to develop a plan for both
of our locker rooms and create changing stalls for our players. Bruce Leiden also helped
us to 'redesign' the space we use and to maximize it for our coaches' benefit.
Bruce had the green light on construction around August 1 and had all our equipment in
place by the first week of September. He was also willing and able to make adjustments
on the fly.
The quality of the workmanship is second to none. The effort and experience is tremendous.
And the result was a great improvement for us. I would highly encourage you to utilize
Bruce Leiden and his folks to put together your plans and locker room.
As well, if you would like a picture or look at our facility to compare, you are
welcome to contact me.

To Whom It May Concern:
Adrian College was late in processing which avenue to take in deciding the type of
lockers for the new Arrington Ice Arena. As we contacted numerous vendors, Leiden
Woodworking assured Adrian College they could complete this project in six to eight
weeks. Leiden started production of the wood lockers from scratch on August 5, 2007
and installed the last locker on September 15, 2007 (Just seven weeks from start to finish).
The workmanship and quality of the lockers (109 wooden ice hockey lockers, 56 wooden
changing lockers, 3 stick racks and 4 video cabinets) surpassed the recommendation
received for Leiden woodworking. The delivery time, professionalism and workmanship
delivered a superior product.
Leiden's willingness to help adjust and rearrange rooms for maximum efficiency only
adds to the reasons that Adrian College would recommend Leiden Woodworking for future
Adrian College would be more than willing to have you visit our facility or we could

We are so proud of our new Men's Lacrosse Locker Room at Princeton University.
Bruce Leiden of Leiden Woodworking did an amazing, first-class job of selecting
the best wood product for us, designing the lockers and cabinets, and installing
From our initial contact with Bruce, he took the time to
explain all of our options, from wood types to name plates. He always made sure
the lockers and hardware were exactly as we wanted. The installation was
professional and the end result was more than we could have hoped for.
Whenever anyone sees our locker room, they are amazed at the attention to detail
that was taken by Bruce. We are proud to say that Leiden Woodworking was the
best option for us as we searched for someone who would do a quality job with a
very reasonable price tag. I would recommend Leiden to anyone looking the
highest quality in materials, service, and workmanship.

On behalf of the Portland Pirates Hockey Club and Cumberland County
Civic Center, I would like to thank you and your company for such a
great job constructing our new lockers for our dressing room. The
appearance of the lockers and craftmanship has provided the room

I would definitely recommend your establishment to any professional
sports team or organization.

Our hockey club recently had the opportunity to lease space for a
private locker room for our team. It was out responsibility to provide
the build out including lockers.
After looking at several options, we pick Leiden Woodworking to build and
install the player lockers. Bruce Leiden personally did most of the work.
The parents who paid for the lockers and the hockey players using them
are very satisfied. We would recommend Leiden Woodworking to anyone.

Now that the hockey season is full swing and the State Tournaments
are just around the corner. I wanted to take a moment to express my
praise and gratitude for a superior performance by Leiden Woodworking
on the design, construction and installation of the lockers in our
new hockey team locer room.
I would like to formally endorse Leiden Woodworking to any prospective
clients who are interested in creating or reconditioning their hockey
locker room (or locker rooms for any sport). I am please to proclaim
Leiden Woodworking promptly responded to all inquiries that we made.
Leiden Woodworking provided several alternatives to match our custom
needs. Leiden Woodworking delivered its design proposal immediately,
and ipon our acceptance of their proposal, they gave our project their
full attention. They immediately crafted the lockers and brought them
to our site and had them installed on time and on budget.
If any of our clients would have any questions pertaining to our project,
I would be happy to answer them. They are, of course, welcome to visit our
locker room and inspect them during a game or practice.

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that the new locker room
in the Webster Center at Babson College that you built has been well received.
Coaches, student-athletes, alumni and parents have all been raving about the
quality of their new locker room and are very impressed. The design on the
locker room itself was well planned and constructed and the lockers themselves
have a first class look to them!
I know I speak for out coaches and student-athletes in saying thank you to
Leiden Woodworking for their efforts and quality work!
Director of Athletics, Babson College
I want you to know that I have heard nothing but strong, positive comments
about the way the locker room at the Harrison Rink, Phillips Academy Andover
have turned out. Your locker design, layout and installation plays a large
part in those opinions. You were a pleasure to work with and had thoughtful,
cost effective, program sensitive suggestions and design.
Personally, I would like to thank you for your efforts and assistance with
