About the ’MM’ in MM Wood Studio

Matthew At WorkLike many other woodworkers, Matthew was introduced to woodworking at a young age by watching his father build furniture. Despite considerable intrigue, his personal relationship with woodworking ended up waiting several years.

After spending years sitting in front of a computer writing code, Matthew came to realize that his electronic creations, although being used, would disappear as technology progressed. While still in his twenties, he discovered that he wanted to create something that would last for hundreds of years, make its owners happy and be enjoyed by many.

A woodworker was born!

Today, Matthew wants to take his love of woodworking and combine it with his love of teaching and help other woodworkers learn and build beautiful furniture. Since he started teaching at Moorpark College in the fall of 2001, he has had a desire to help others learn, grow and become better human beings.

Now, he is combining both of these passions and bringing to the world MM Wood Studio, a new online woodworking school specializing in intermediate to advanced-level projects deconstructed for the home woodworker.
