Miniviews series - No. 19 with Dylan & Molly

You’ve landed on the nineteenth installment of the Maker Miniviews series called “I’m a Maker Because…” The structure of this maker series is that Scott Mathson, Makerviews asks different makers two questions. That’s it, two questions. These text, maker interviews are quick and to-the-point, all while providing insight from a wide variety of truly talented individuals!

As makers, we all need to support each other in getting out there and making things. With that, brevity is key. That’s why I’ve taken a two-question approach in this series. Check out this interview with Dylan & Molly of Woodbrew.

Dylan & Molly interview

What inspires you to keep making things?

"Necessity has been the driving force behind our creativity the past few years... only recently has this ever so slightly changed. Making things has harbored such growth in our professional and personal lives that it has become an extension of who we are.

We used to make things for ourselves, but now we can make things that may inspire others to create and that is inspiring."

What one piece of advice would you give to other, budding woodworkers?

"Don’t get caught up in the "if only I had __________" phrase... Make do with the available resources and just have some fun.


Dylan & Molly are the young entrepreneurs behind Woodbrew. They initially started Woodbrew as a furniture restoration and creation business and have since shifted into content production, putting out great woodworking content.
