Turn Your Woodworking Passion Into A Business

Do you have a passion in woodworking?

Maybe it's not so much of a passion as it is something you are good at. Well, like the joker said, if you're good at something, never do it for free. But going about starting a woodworking business is not as straight forward as building something and selling something. Some of the things you have you have to know how to do are:

  • pricing your work
  • getting good but low cost supplies
  • taxes and licensing
  • contracting out some of the work

The most important of those 4 things is contracting out the work. Being an owner/operator will only take you so far. To build a business you have to be prepared to give some of the work to people that you trust. Time management is key. After all, you don't want to create yourself a job right? Of course not! You want to grow a long profitable sustaining business. Clients are going to ask you to meet certain deadlines and you just won't have the means to do it working by yourself.

What Kind Of Market Can you expect

Just like most businesses, your not going to make a killing out of the gate. The first people that should be your clients is friends and family. You honestly should do the first job for free. It doesn't have to be a big job, maybe just a simple rocking chair. But you need to prove to the people around you that you are good at what you do and your business will grow instantly by word of mouth. After you start there, you can start advertising a little whether by SEO practices online or even your local newspaper.

Jim Morris

There's a guy in Texas by the name of Jim Morris who was dead broke back in 1995 and then started building stuff in his 10x20 workstation. He claims to have made over $150k in his first year and created a blueprint that people can follow. Of course, we don't know for sure if he really made that much money but making money woodworking is very obtainable.

Conclusion

If there's a passion, there's money to be made. But if you start a woodworking business you can carve out a cool little niche. The best part about this business is that I don't see it ever get wiped out by e-commerce. People are always going to want their special handmade furniture items and not order it on the internet.
