A self-taught woodworker and grandmother of nine, Barb is retired from owning a bookstore for twenty years, then retired from managing a local branch of a tour bus company, and is now an elderly care giver for family in need. The siren call of the workshop is always within reach!


Hi Barb. I get to Wenatchee for doc visits at the VA and to harass my brother, in East Wenatchee.

Nice shop

Hello, Kelly. Nice to have another ‘local’ here! My shop is pretty cluttered, but it’s mine and I love it.

Just a note to fellow woodworkers…I’ve decided to close down my retail website at Vista Print. I’ve loved having it, but now I want to shift all my wood products over to Etsy.com just to simplify things. Etsy has done a good job of promoting their business and drawing in customers, and having products on one site instead of two will simplify my on-line web time considerably. Working wood is wonderful, but spending hours on the computer for promoting things, well, it just sucks! ;-)
