Location: Los Angeles, CA

I'm a mom of two who left a corporate marketing job at A&E and The History Channel in 2003 to spend more time at home with my kids. In order to help make up for my lost salary, I started Mod Mom Furniture where I design and build modern, mid-century style kids' furniture. I'm a self-taught carpenter with a love for modern style (aka plywood furniture.)

I've checked out Lumberjocks many times for tips and advice and am thrilled to be part of the community.

My furniture is sold on my website, , as well as in modern furniture/modern kids gear stores throughout the US and Canada.

What fun! I love the Owyn Box; no smushed little fingers.

It is a lot more fun in the shop than the board room! (I was also a corporate refugee.) Come to think of it, one could make the analogy that a shop IS a “board” room.

Good luck and welcome.
