About John Moody.....
Welcome to John Moody
We're 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
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.

My wife is also Beth Moody and was

We recently were featured in the
Riverhill Home and Garden show and had the pleasure of

Our booth won the Award of Merit at
the May 2014 Arts Alive show in Florence, Ala.
