So I’ve been dabbling in this hobby for 4-5 years now, and decided to make a side business out of it. The first step is a name. So how about “Measure Twice, Cut Thrice Woodworking”, or “Cut Thrice Woodworks”. Thoughts?

How about “Measure Twice Woodworking”? The word thrice doesn’t work for me. Good luck with getting a name and lots of business.

Many people have heard the saying “measure twice, cut once” and consider it to be good advice, turning it around like you suggest is witty but might rub people the wrong way since it is essentially bad advice and you don’t want them thinking that your craftsmanship is bad or in any way wasteful. I also agree with BoxBuilder that “thrice” is not a good choice since it is not in common usage. You need a simple name that attracts attention, is easy to remember, and works well with modern technology (web site address and autocorrect). Good luck and keep us posted.

I agree with leafhurder, that was the first thing I thought of was the possibility of bad craftsmanship. Same goes with the “thrice” thing as well. So as catchy as it sounds Id forget the whole “measure twice” as a whole. Maybe incorporate your city name or maybe a street you grew up on? For example, I live on Sunnybrook Drive, I always thought Sunnybrook WoodWorks sounded good. Give it a Shot, and Good Luck!
