I started woodworking 8 years ago with ZERO prior experience.

My Story

My name is Alyssa but some call me Lyss, Mom, Babe, Farmers Wife or "That Tik Tok Girl".  

But ultimately I'm. a Child of God, too stubborn for my own good, lover of Dr. Pepper, most likely mentally renovating my home, and in desperate need of a manicure.


I was a hairdresser by trade with an extremely determined personality that was convinced I could build a table for my husband for wayyyyyyy cheaper than buying one. Mind you, this was back when we were dating and somehow despite many mistakes made, moments of frustration and some tears. I freaking did it! There are no words to describe how awesome finishing that first table all by myself was! I instantly fell in love and found my new passion. Something in my soul was ignited!

When I was 8 years old, I joined 4H and showed pigs, steers and sheep until I was 21 years old. I was also my chapter secretary of my local FFA (Future Farmers of America) program.

I originally was going to go to school for swine management and then two weeks before orientation I applied to cosmetology school. 

I almost died while on a mission trip when I almost fell into a glacier. Luckily I was able to barely catch myself with my hands and pull myself out. 

P.S. This is the photo I was taking

P.S. I am 80% deaf in Left Ear, I have failed every single hearing test in my life. 

When I was 21 years old I was swimming across a lake at our summer cottage and I lost all my hearing in my left ear for two weeks. 

I tripped my freshman year of high school and tripped face first and hit my teeth on the tile while trying to be cool in front of some senior boys. 

I'm very competitive and I've played soccer for 25 years and love it!
