Crafting Passion: Unveiling the Journey That Built Aria Wood Designs LLC

Meet John Chretien - Owner/Woodwooker

Introducing John, the creative force propelling Aria Wood Designs LLC into the realm of exceptional craftsmanship and pet-centric innovation.

In the spring of 2017, armed with a degree in business administration, John sought a fulfilling hobby beyond the confines of his professional world. Little did he know, this quest would ignite a transformative journey.

Discovering an innate love for creating and assembling furniture, John found solace in the art of woodworking. Driven by a profound desire to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, a woodworker himself, John delved into the craft, guided by passion and an unwavering commitment to quality.

From the humblest of beginnings, armed with basic household tools, John's initial foray into woodworking led to the creation of a simple toddler rail, etched lovingly on the cement floor of his garage. Realizing the need for a proper workspace, he swiftly fashioned his first workbench, laying the foundation for what would become a remarkable workshop of creativity and craftsmanship.

Inspiration often comes from the most unexpected places. Enter Rocky, a beloved Chiweenie struggling to navigate household furniture. This furry companion became the catalyst for John's leap into designing pet steps. The first 15-inch pet steps, born from love and necessity, soon became a staple in our offerings, sparking a cascade of innovation.

Fuelled by the encouragement of friends, family, and a growing demand for custom solutions, Aria Wood Designs LLC expanded its repertoire. Today, our workshop boasts an array of pet-friendly products—steps, ramps, and bespoke creations—each a testament to John's unwavering dedication.

From a single vision to a thriving business, John's journey embodies resilience, passion, and a deep-rooted commitment to improving the lives of pets and their devoted owners.

Join us as we celebrate John's transformative odyssey, crafting a world where craftsmanship meets compassion, and every creation serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment to you and your cherished pets.

Warm Regards,
The Aria Wood Designs Team
