About Me

OWW Logo Burnt into Wood


My name is Matt Hagens, and thank you for visiting my about page.

I started woodworking when I was a kid but recently got back into it as an adult. Like many people, I was looking for a new hobby to help me cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and found my passion for woodworking.

I began by watching hours and hours of YouTube videos and even bought some courses to help me become more educated.

I am a member of Steve Ramsey’s The Weekend Woodworker. I am also a member of Eddie Case’s Basement Finishing University.

I have built many projects for our home, friends, and clients. Most of my projects revolve around furniture, but I have also done large home renovations, such as finishing our basement and adding a wet bar. I am proficient in woodworking and carpentry, but also have considerable experience in electrical work (new and old construction).

That’s why I built this website. To help the average person learn more about this wonderful (and very addictive) hobby.

Here are a few of my recent projects:

Kitchen Live Edge Bar Top
Walnut Kitchen Live Edge Bar Top
Coffee Table
Ash Coffee Table
Popcorn Machine Shelves
Walnut Popcorn Machine Shelves
Kids Desk
Maple Plywood and Poplar Kids Desk

Whether you want to make your kids a new desk or just install some new shelves, my goal is to provide you with information to help with your project.

I’d love to hear from you and see the projects you are working on:
