Hi! I Am Anika!

I am an engineer turned woodworker and I use simple techniques and minimal tools to help aspiring DIYers like you make professional-looking projects, even if you’re starting.

Ever had to abandon a wall-mounted shelf because you didn’t understand your drill?

Scrolled through hours of YouTube videos and felt like the instructor skipped a few steps?

Wandered around the lumber department hoping for an employee to come to your rescue… but not exactly knowing what to ask once they get there? 

Yeah. Me neither. 😉

As a self-taught woodworker with a gift for teaching, I am here to tell you—

Woodworking does not have to be overwhelming, complicated, or expensive. In fact, you can fill an entire home with original pieces just by mastering the features & functions of your power tools and learning a few foundational woodworking techniques.

Literally, everything you can make starts right there.
