From Woodworker Rebecca Hanna. (In the series Folk Art In Place, explore and learn with folk artists as they take us through their workspaces and demonstrate their craft.)
You might ask yourself (after the whole emotional shock of the pandemic in our country and world), “What will I do with myself if we are self-isolating or go into ‘lock down’ mode?” In an odd sort of way, I welcome the gift of time!
As one of many folk artists with numerous UFOs (UnFinished Objects), this is my chance to dive into those many woodworking projects I have long put off. To have those long periods of uninterrupted time is a treasure I am willing to embrace!
About five years ago, I added a woodworking studio/workshop onto my house. It is on the lower level and in a walk-out basement on the north side. I look out upon my huge back yard bordered by our neighborhood park. It’s a beautiful view all year round. With three walls of windows, I get lots of natural light.
