I would be concerned about 3 things:

1) Do your customers realize how much “custom” woodworking should and does cost? Are they expecting mass produced furniture pricing? Is that $500 average sale base on custom commissioned work or mass produced furniture from overseas?

2) LTL Freight shipping, unless you have a good solution for the exorbitant cost of small scale freight shipping , this will be a deal breaker for many of your customers. If the table cost $1000, are they willing to pay $500 shipping?

3) Also, is “reclaimed” simply a matter of aesthetics, or are we talking actual previously used, reclaimed and repurposed lumber? How should an individual woodworker go about sourcing and maintaining a consistent supply of reclaimed walnut, cherry etc?

Lot’s of details that need development on this.
