Katie Jackson
 
Known for being a woodworking teacher, Katie Jackson started a woodworking career only after graduating from college for painting and education. Her creative spirit and drive to empower others led her to woodworking education targeting at-risk girls and young women. An experiment in collaborative woodworking and reclaimed materials, while never profitable, led to a line of custom furniture and eventually a book, Hand-Built Outdoor Furniture: 20 Step-By-Step Projects Anyone Can Build.
