Had such a great night with some completely amazing women!! Just a few images of tonight’s creativity during my planter workshop @ Titletown! I didn’t catch everyone, unfortunately...due to...well...teaching! ☺️ So...if anyone has pics of themselves &/or finished projects to share...I’d love to see you post them!!

Thanks so much for coming out, being awesome & making my night great, ladies!! Hope to see you all in another class soon! And to Titletown...thanks so much for having me!!!! Such a great facility!!


Whew...the last of SO many planter boxes...built! That was definitely a marathon in the shop! 🥴

Now...is the fun part...making samples to share!! (To get those creative minds rolling!)

Can’t wait to see everyone this Thursday evening at Titletown to see how you make yours...uniquely...YOU! 🎨🌿🔨


Current status...buried in planter box building for this Thursday’s workshop at Titletown! Good thing I love shop time...considering I have...well...a ton more to go!! 🥴

Can’t wait to see how my “students” finish them to make them uniquely theirs!! See you all soon!


Good Morning enthusiasts! Today...is...shop day! ❄️
(After a very loaded coffee & a fire started...brrrrr 🔥!)

Let the prepping begin for my upcoming Planter Workshop @ Titletown!! Only 2756 cuts to go for this “Sold Out” class!!! 🥴 See you all Soon!!!


Talk about some fine custom woodwork! We finally finished this vintage inspired masterpiece of a house...& I just had to snap a few pics of our work to share 🥰 (whew...the work in that house was tremendous!!)

So...very thankful to have worked with this guy...for the last 20 years...whom I just so happen to be able to proudly call, dad ❤️(Take a look at that custom staircase he mastered...sophisticated cutting at its finest...simply incredible!)


Whew...I finally finished up my little lady’s new bed...Wahoo!
I believe, she’s in love ❤️

Next up...a pretty unique custom ordered liquor cabinet...which..is, let me just say...going to be awesome!

Shop time in between work time! Love it!!


This is what my daughter expects of me when I have the day off of work...work! 😊 Spent the day building the bed of her dreams while she played foreman! It’s coming together beautifully, I must say! A work in progress...still left...paint (absolutely not...will I leave that stained wood wall 🥴, trim, a roof, shelving, and lighting...this beauty is going to be awesome! (Bonus...mommy days are the best!)


After working out of town disconnected from society in the deep woods...grinding 12 hour days for the past month...here’s a glimpse, as promised...of just a small piece of what my work days are consisting of...breathtaking...to say the least! Man...I love my job...🔨

#dowhatyoulovelovewhatyoudo #womanwoodworker


Just another day “in the office” working on the guts for one heck of a beam job...oooooh....can’t wait to encase them in maple...what a statement they shall make!

(I don’t brag about my “day job” too often...so...I figured I was overdue to! And come on...this is just plain...brag worthy...!!😚)

Spent this un'bear'ably frigid day (catch my pun, there?!) indoors making these cuties!!

Head on over to
to grab yours today!


So...I just had to share this...

What an honor...

I received an email yesterday by a woman inquiring to create a candle for her very special (and obviously, fun loving!) grandma fighting cancer...who loves to joke about her “diagnoses” by calling it “A-Hole Cancer.”

From the description of the scent she desired to the Name of the Candle...just beautiful...such a sweet idea!

An idea of Just How Custom you can get!! Need a special gift for someone? (Valentines Day is right around the corner!) Nothing is “too out there!” Trust me!

Available online at tanyarybicki.com under the shop tab or at The Eclectic Market (153 N Broadway in GB)...or simply shoot me a message at [email protected]


This is one of my favorite flips in our home I tackled a couple days ago...here’s why...this room was an addition after we moved into our home (which was not at all move in ready for our, at the time, family of 4). It has been the master suite, a sun room, a dance room, the girls shared bedroom, a play room, an art room...and this time...I...finally feel...as if it’s found it’s perfect space.

Beans has her sanctuary...and I think...she’s in love...complete with a gorgeous white distressed farmhouse pallet wall to frame her bed & a cute little earthy built-in vanity she just had to have!) ☺️

(A little before and after...revealing all of the different paint colors it has been...behind the large dance mirrors! Anyone else guilty of “the paint around” technique?! Lol!) Oh...and the window picture...just for viewing pleasure...ahhhh...fresh white snow...love the windows in here ❄️)

Need a “flip job?” I’d love to tackle your space! Free quotes ✌🏼 [email protected]


Words cannot express the hatred I had for that Formica countertop! Every so often...ok...ok...so a lot...I wake up in the morning & decide to pick a space to revamp. Today...I was inspired by this vintage grate I salvaged & some reclaimed lumber that was just waiting to be brought back to life...and this is the space that needed attention ❤️ a little paint, a new countertop, and some love.

[01/14/19]   My first woodworking classes in the new location are coming up quickly!! Reserve your spot/s today!! Trust me...they're going to be awesome!! A pretty sweet atmosphere to grab some power tools, paints & plants & get your creative DIY selves creating! See you all soon at The Eclectic Market (153 N Broadway, Green Bay)


I’ve always loved music & sketching...so I’ve combined them! Having fun making these pretty little sketch/writing books today (and I needed just a little break from wood & candles...I know, right, who would of thought?)

Currently loving the simplicity & Earthy look & smell of these tin soy’s...what’s the scent of the evening? “Old school Social Networking”...the sweet scent of bonfires & conversation 🔥🧡 Currently available at The Eclectic Market (153 N Broadway in GB) & online @ https://www.tanyarybicki.com/shop-1

The Story

Timbers & Thyme started as a passion...a 19+ years passion in carpentry. Finish Carpentry to be accurate. I am a woman & I am a carpenter. Having worked this many years with not another woman in sight, I decided it was time to take the initiative to teach other people (especially women, who may be intimidated) just what I know. I started out with the desire to teach concepts...which turned into creating projects...which turned into instilling confidence & empowerment.

I now have branched out & moved forward...my unique & un-exampled Wood Goods can be found online & in The Eclectic Market (153 N Broadway, Green Bay, WI) & continue to love hosting workshops there as well.

I truly put my heart into every piece I build...hope you love them as much as I do :)

Hope to see you in a workshop soon!
