The Inspiration-Sparking Rituals Of A Woodworking Artist After A Day In Her Shop
"Busy" feels like a massive understatement when describing Oakland-based woodworker Aleksandra Zee’s life right now: She creates incredible wood furniture, installations, and sculptures (yes, wood sculptures!); she manages her self-owned business; and she just launched her first book.

In this episode of Lights Out, Aleksandra walks us through her soothing, serenity-driven evening routine.
