Sofia Michailidou interview

What inspires you to keep making things?

"I can get inspiration from everything around me, but most of all from the feeling I have when I'm doing this, I am really happy, calm and 100% myself. For as long as I can remember myself I was curious and always had that yearning of making things with my hands. I started renewing and remaking small furniture I found in trash (small treasures for me) because I believe that nothing is wasted.

Everyday I'm learning something new, every project is a challenge for me and that thing gives me pulse and more inspiration."

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

"Oh I can say so many things, although I'm a new member in this community, from my small experience in this my piece of advice is action, mistake, learn and repeat! Enjoy the process of making and the feelings it gives you: joy, doubt, nerves, satisfaction, everything!

Never compare yourself to others, take time, focus on your target and give it your soul and believe me the result will be great."


A look into the work of this maker’s work proves clean, consistent design aesthetic and an amazing final product.

"Enjoy the process of making and the feelings it gives you: joy, doubt, nerves, satisfaction, everything!" — Sofia Michailidou
