My partner James has gotten into making wood pieces.
James started out working in a tiny garage making skateboards, wooden surfboards plus other fun board ideas. Then he extended into making wooden furniture. He made end tables plus even our family room table. Anyone who came over to our condo loved the wood furniture. Then he started getting orders for handmade wood furniture. Every one of us had no other option but to make our tiny garage into a workspace for him. Once the orders started pouring in heavily, my partner James got a website up boasting that he makes custom wood furniture. He does all different sized tables, chairs plus even storage cases. How the process works is that someone calls him or SMSs through the website. He then asks for the size, kind of wood, stain plus how quick of turn around they need. Then they get a price estimate plus he works all afternoon on the project. My partner James has easily gotten quite great at his craft. I have been pushing him into extending even more in his business. He can make bedroom furniture plus even task on making custom sofas if he wants to. This requires working with leather and upholstery… Right now he wants to stick with wood and the entertainment idea of it. At the rate custom made furniture pieces are going, he might want to think about it more. Secondly, it is only a matter of time before he needs an employee to help him with all his work.
