About John Moody.....

Welcome to  John Moody Woodworks.

We're John and Beth Moody.

John and Beth Moody

I am a hobby wood worker. I got started woodworking building projects many years ago with my father. We were building small barn style buildings as storage/shop buildings. I found a real love for working with wood and building. I found great joy in seeing a project begin with a pile of wood and end with a building.

Several years ago I decided I wanted to get into furniture building. Before I could get started building furniture, I had to setup my shop. First were cabinets that had to be built. I found I enjoyed the cabinet building and it gave me a lot of confidence in producing the pieces of furniture that were to come. When you get a chance, check out the gallery to see some of the pieces I have produced.

My first furniture project was to build a bed. My wife helped me to pick out a project to build. A pencil post bed became the first piece of furniture. I had such an experience building the bed, I was hook and couldn’t stop. The bed was followed by a chest, a lingerie chest, and a night stand for our bedroom.

Several other shop cabinets have come along since the beginning. Much of what I have built so far has been for my home, shop, family and friends. Request  come for various pieces and I have done my best to produce a quality piece for the person requesting.

Each new piece has opened up another part of the woodworking. I am currently making cutting boards and custom pen and pencil sets to sell at First Friday here in Florence, AL.
