Transcript for How these Etsy women business owners are breaking barriers
We move to women's history month drawing to a close. Three boss women breaking down barriers in the business world and bit successful companies on etsy and fields traditionally dom nailed by men. Becky Worley has their story. Reporter: Melanie is a woodworker who transforms cork into usable art like vases. So this is it. These are big girl tools. Yeah, this is a wood turning lathe. The band saw is what we use to cut all our presses. A press, these are take your finger off tools. All ten, right? I got all ten. Okay. She says being a woman woodworker has its rough spots. You go into a lumberyard or even like a wood working shop, you know, and they treat you as if you're not really sure what you're doing. Reporter: But for her and for furniture maker Greta deperry, it's worth it. I hope they don't have a per sense of what one looks like other than a woman. Reporter: Both use etsy as a plan of selling their products, two-thirds of their sellers say income has held steady or increased since covid started and 97% of sellers run their business from home. Like Florida furniture maker and table archer. I love all the tables. For me they represent us taking a step to bridge our fears and try something else. When you put something in the store and then somebody buys it. And all these makers have a message for others interested in these tradition Amelie male dominated spaces. I hope that other women watching and see us taking pieces of wood and turning them into tables that will be something that can resonate in many sol of their minds, that it may not be wood working you want to do. It could be anything you want to do. Reporter: Now if you're wondering how to get into these fields some went to art school and did trend disships, others learned from YouTube and classes. There are so many local maker spaces and lessons, I took a workshop at one near me and, George, you may not believe it but I am a welder, angle grounding, fabrication, stick welding. If you need any blacksmithing help I can come over, just need me a call. It doesn't surprise me. John Cena is next.
