Ashley Nielsen More about Ashley Nielsen Ashley Nielsen is a full time custom furniture builder living in Utah. In the past five years, Ashley has become an incredible designer and builder by staying focused and learning from others in the woodworking community. After a handful of trips to thrift stores and yard sales buying pieces to refinish, she started sharing her results with others on Instagram. This activity prompted the start of @buildlikeachick, an Instagram page that illustrates various phases of building unique home décor, furniture and other building products. Ashely believes strong images of women in construction can help build confidence in women entering and pursuing careers in skilled trades.
