I’ve started a small business, but it didn’t include my woodworking or shop. I did business strategy consulting work and merger advice, and actually did okay. I also participated in other startups.

From that experience, I can say that the MAJOR FACTOR is not how you set it up. That will evolve and can be changed. The KEY is finding paying work. I recommend finding a client or three and making the wood projects they want, and focus on that for a few months at least to get started.

With the above views stated, I am now going to PM to buckbuster for input myself. Right now I am in that startup phase of making some small but very functional wood projects for sale. And so far, I have done nothing but work on the design and prototypes of my offerings.
