(about Kate Taylor)
In March 2009 Woodworkers Journal featured me in Issue 218 of their Ezine.
It was a nice piece and I was pleased to be included in
their Today's Woodworker column. When I read the article it made me
realize how long I've been woodworking and how things have changed for
me over the years.
My woodworking career began when I was in my early twenties. I worked for a friend who built custom log homes (my first dovetails were made with a chainsaw). From there I went on to work for cabinetmakers, making custom kitchens and occasionally making cabinets for institutions such as schools and hospitals.
working for other people I continued to work on my own, in my basement,
making gifts for friends and family. As I improved I started to get
requests to make things - a jewelry box for a friend's mother, a cabinet
for a local horse farm. Before I knew it I was in business.
Since then I have continued to expand my business. I sell my work on-line and through craft galleries as well as by word of mouth. I occasionally go to shows where I get a chance to talk to people and see first hand what people find interesting. The rest of the time I'm happily puttering around in my shop.
In 2011 I moved from Boston back to Vermont. I was born here and I'm glad to be back. I now have a one-woman woodworking business in Central Vermont. I make furniture, cabinets, and yes, boxes.
Feel free to contact me if you'd like to discuss a custom order. I love making new and interesting items and would be happy to talk about it with you.
Thanks for your interest in my website and my work.
