A native of California, Ariele Alasko is a full-time woodworker in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating with a BFA in sculpture in 2009, she started building furniture for her apartment. Shortly after, her hobby morphed into a full-time career. She uses salvaged materials from construction projects, including plaster lath, which was once used to plaster walls. She then cleans it up and applies it to table tops, head boards, and wall panels.
While many woodworking accounts showcase finished work, Instagram is a great place to find inspiration. Many of the top stars in the woodworking industry showcase their new work here, often before they debut it in shops and galleries. Woodworkers also share snapshots of their processes and give followers a glimpse inside their studios.
While most woodworkers focus on making beautiful pieces for home use, some people find that designing and making their own pieces can be a fulfilling and rewarding experience. Ariele Meyer has carved a niche for herself, starting out with a hobby of spoon carving and furniture building. Since then, she has expanded into interior design and sculptures.
