I’m Char - a hobbyist woodworker for the last 18 years and I am a mom of four. In 2015, I left my job in corporate America to be a full-time maker. Over the last few years, I have taken on client’s furniture Pinterest boards and brought them to life. I also teach woodshop classes to those who are new to power tools. On the weekend you can catch me teaching kids as young as seven to make simple projects using the miter saw and drill press. My main goal is to give back and nurture new makers and give back to the community, I volunteer with the Girls Makers Club at my local maker space and serve on the Board of Directors at Decatur Makers. To bring more female woodworkers to the forefront, I write for the Women in Woodworking news column for Highland Woodworking in Atlanta. As a content creator I work with brands such Rockler, Popular Mechanics, Glowforge, and various woodworking magazines.
I’ve had the opportunity to work on television with various networks such as PBS, CNN, and Discovery Plus. I live by the motto: “Be Great. Live Passionately”.
