Portrait of Cathy M. Aldrich

Cathy Aldrich, an Ohio native who has lived in the Seattle, Washington, area for most of her life, says she has woodworking in her blood. Ancestors on both sides of her family tree earned their living working in wood, building furniture, and making things for their families.

Cathy has many hobbies and enjoys creating things in a variety of disciplines for her home and herself as well as her family and friends. She has built many large and small pieces of furniture for her home using mostly non-power hand tools. She has a background in art but no formal training. She considers herself a formerly trained artist because her craft required her to unlearn many of the techniques she had been taught. While adhering to the basic concepts, she has created her own style.

Cathy chose to focus her business on game boards because of their graphic nature. Her designs are authentic to the period yet can easily grace a modern home, where old becomes new again. When making her game boards, she works only with the tools her forebears would have recognized and used because tradition matters when imitating works of the past.

Cathy is also a freelance writer and a six-year survivor of ovarian cancer.
