The Talk


What We've Heard


"Working with Arete Woodworking was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding! My husband and I were looking for a live edge wooden slab with our last name on it for our guests to sign. I messaged Chris 3 short weeks before my wedding and he knew exactly what I was looking for and immediately got to work. He sent pictures throughout the process to make sure that I was happy with the product. He completed it, packaged it very securely, and shipped it all the way to Illinois with time to spare before our wedding. He was so easy to work with. I highly recommend Arete Woodworking!"
