I haven’t posted anything related to woodworking in a while, so I thought it was time to get off my butt and do something about it.

My woodworking drive is somewhat tied to the seasons.  My interest usually intensifies when the weather begins to cool down.  The reason?  I simply have more time available to get into the shop and build stuff.  When the weather cools down my chore list usually shrinks with the temperatures.  Maintaining the yard is no longer the main time suck and my mind begins to ponder on new and exciting possibilities.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy woodworking year round.  For the last few months I have maintained an Etsy shop at MLWoodStudio.etsy.com and sale a variety of small items.

This valet tray is my best seller so far

I also offer wooden wallets

This puts a little extra cash in my pocket and let’s me enjoy one of my hobbies at the same time.  The items I offer are easy to package and ship which helps me to keep the shop manageable, since it’s a side hustle.

When it comes to woodworking I’m really drawn to furniture.  Specifically, modern furniture, basically anything that is rooted in mid-century modern tends to catch my eye.  I have built some furniture in the past, mainly small accent tables and…umm… yeah, some small accent tables.  But, I have plans of tackling  bigger projects this winter and I hope to take you guys along with me.

My intention is to include the “Shop Update” as an on-going segment.  At this time, I’m not sure if I will post a shop update weekly, monthly, or just when I have something interesting to share.

I still plan to post my regular content but, I also want to introduce more diversity on this blog.
