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 initially started Woodbrew as a furniture restoration and creation business and have since shifted into content production, putting out great woodworking content.
