What’s happening in the shop for December 31, 2009 . Yesterday didn’t even pick up a hammer in the shop. I was at work for 12 hours doing cut-list, orders, email, and all that other office stuff. Today I do plan on finishing out Grimm’s Ross murphy bed and building that Batmobile bed. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at or Watch us live: <div></div>

Starting a Woodworking Business #1: Deciding what kind of work to do

08-11-2009 04:54 PM by Sam Yerardi | 37 comments »

For me, one of the hardest things to decide in starting a woodworking business was to determine specifically what type of work or product I wanted to pursue. I’ve done a lot of different styles of woodworking, ranging from kitchen ducks to Queen Anne reproductions. It seemed to me that at either end of the spectrum, there were more cons than pros if I really wanted to make a living at it.
