Hi. My name is Mandy and I’m from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I’ve been a civil engineer for the past 25+ years. I grew up in the residential building business. My father was a manager of Lowe’s for 23 years before buying his own building supply business. So I grew up in Lowe’s, spending my summers running around the warehouse and going on deliveries. After college I worked at my dad’s store for 3 years doing contractor sales, house take-offs and purchasing merchandise. I’ve always had the creative bug and when I got out on my own I started remodeling my own homes and building pieces I couldn’t afford brand new. I found this site through Pinterest and it seemed like a great place to learn and share. Thanks for having me!


Welcome! We look forward to sharing with you and learning from you.

Welcome Mandy, sure glad you found Woodworking Web. With your resume I am really looking forward to seeing your work and ideas. I’m just to your south in Roanoke. Just one thing though, I’m a big Wahoo fan.

Thanks for the welcome Munchy and Jack!

Jack, my daughter is getting ready to move to Roanoke. And I won’t hold that Wahoo thing against you. Lol. I was actually the Assistant Traffic Engineer for the City of Charlottesville.

Welcome Mandy :)
