Woodworker Wednesday - Anne of All Trades, LLC
Happy Woodworker Wednesday! This week features resourceful, talented, and hard-working Anne Briggs Bohnett of Anne of All Trades, LLC!
Anne shares, "I took up woodwork and restoring old tools. That hobby has turned into an obsession. I spend much of my time thinking about how I can get better, about new things I can make, and about new books I have to read... In a society dominated by selfishness, consumerism and waste, I am doing my very best to become a producer and recycler and general good citizen of this earth."
