What began as a side hobby, has grown to a full fledged company. Chris began woodworking in 2014 with the intent of making gifts for family and friends. One project led to another, and in 2015 he officially started “Areté Woodworking” as a nights and weekend part-time business.
In 2017 he decided to go all in, leaving behind a career in strength and conditioning to pursue the endeavor of owning and operating the business full time. Furniture was the main focus in the beginning, and as his portfolio grew so did the jobs! He added decorative concrete and custom cabinetry to the mix in 2020, upon which the company grew to “Areté Wood & Concrete”. In early 2021 he hired his first employee, and now the company continues to grow as we continue to add team members!
Wood furniture in any style. We also specialize in wood & concrete pieces and wood & epoxy.
We create small-scale decorative concrete such as bathroom vanities, desktops, hearths, etc.
