Hey, my name is Anna-Liisa and this is my story about how I fell in love with woodworking.

Although I had been at the wood workshop assisting my boyfriend, who is a professional carpenter, almost two years, I did not think I would make an project on my own.

Why not?

Because it is too difficult, too dangerous, too complicated, I have no skill and the list of excuses may continue without an ending.

So I mostly sanded. No thinking required, mistakes rarely happened. I was satisfied, the level of stress were reducing and I considered it as a time well spent.

Until I decided just to get started.

Now I go to the workshop almost every day and I always make sure that I make things happen. I am still a beginner, that keeps me very motivated to learn new stuff.
