I am still learning too, but love to share things as I explore!

How Did I Get Started

In 2017, I decided to build my grand daughter a doll house for her 18 inch dolls with a plan that I found online. It was challenging but there was a huge sense of accomplishment once the dollhouse was completed. That is when I realized I wanted to dive into woodworking. I have found that I love the process of building furniture, and have realized that you don't need expensive tools or training to make quality, high-end furniture and wall decor.

The rest is history!
