About MM Wood Studio

Matthew At WorkLike many other woodworkers, Matthew was introduced to woodworking at a young age by watching his father and uncle 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 realized 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 hundreds of years, make its owners happy, and be enjoyed by many.

A woodworker was born!

His 16 years of teaching at Moorpark College instilled his desire to help others learn, grow and become better human beings.

In 2010 Matthew wanted to take his love of woodworking and combine it with his love of teaching and help other woodworkers learn and build beautiful furniture and introduce more people to the craft. MM Wood Studio was born!

MM Wood Studio started as an online woodworking school specializing in intermediate to advanced-level projects deconstructed for the home woodworker. Today it is also a brick-and-mortar school and Woodworking club providing classes and a maker space for those who want to do but don’t have the equipment at home.
