Episode 12 - Ashley with Handmade with Ashley
Ashley is a Mom of two, a software engineer, a gaming enthusiast and yes, a maker. She enjoys woodworking along with 3D printing. Making allows her to have a hobby that gets her doing things physically and away from a computer screen which is where she spends the majority of her time with work.
At the beginning it took her time to get comfortable using some of the power tools, but after taking a beginners woodworking class she worked through that. She even owns two bandsaws now. Currently she is cranking out characters on her 3D printer. She plans on getting her CNC machine put together and start using it in the new year.
