Meet the Team
Wood Whisperer. The boss.
Co-owner of Aeonic Kitchens and certified wood whisperer. Growing up Herman had a passion for building anything out of wood. It is unclear at what age he started whispering to his projects. High school gave him the opportunity to hone his skills. He then went to Conestoga College and completed the architectural Millwork Co-op program. After working in the wood industry for four years he founded
H² Custom Woodworks, servicing Listowel and area with his custom creations. In January, 2020 he joined forces with Jason Hovius of JWood Kitchens & Baths to create Aeonic Kitchens.
Shop singer/general noise-maker.
When he was a kid, wood was Jason’s go-to material. Woodworking classes in high school and college further inspired him to try stuff on his own. On the weekends he would play around in the shop with materials and designs that he was thinking about during the week. After college, Jason did a combination of some part-time work and a variety of side jobs on his own. In 2015, he began doing freelance drawings and design for a few local furniture and cabinet companies. A few years later he purchased JWood Kitchens & Baths, one of the shops that he had worked with. This led to the creation of AEONIC KITCHENS, which he founded with Herman Siebring, the acclaimed wood whisperer from H² Custom Woodworks.
