If you’re going to promote yourself as a “hot” carpenter, you’re likely to hear from the creeps. Whether or not they know how to hammer a nail is likely beside the point.
Lauren Larsen, 19, indicated that is pretty much her plight. She loves carpentry and seemingly also loves having videos made while she’s on the job.
It has resulted in plenty of perhaps unwanted comments for the Melbourne, Australia, teen.

She has also received lots of praise, of course, including a significant amount from other female carpenters, as well as those who hope to be someday.
“The way I see it — you’re gonna get judged no matter what you do,” Larsen wrote in a comment, via the New York Post. “So you may as well be enjoying it.”

Larsen has racked up more than 13,000 followers on TikTok, with some of her videos garnering close to 2 million pageviews. Some of them depict her working out and staying fit for what is undoubtedly a tough job. “Honestly i wanna know how you got into it because i’m lost and i want to start carpentry soon,” one viewer wrote. “I am a female concreter! I love to see us showing how capable we are!,” another one noted.
Good for her! She’s making a living all while being hot, it’s the best of both worlds, right? Let her promote herself and her business in peace, she’s just trying her best, okay?
She could be like other 19-year-old…who basically have no clue what they are doing. So yeah, promote your career, get those clients, and get Tiktok famous! Why not?
