Topic tags/keywords: chair jobs produce production work wood furniture craftsmen craftsman design

Hello there,

I have been designing chairs for quite some time and now I ve finally managed to get some attention and have been asked to exhibit at an international fair.

I am looking for someone to produce my first prototypes in wood.

What is the best way to find someone who can produce it? Are there any websites were interested craftsmen promote themselves? Is anyone in this forum interested in producing it?

As you probably imagine, we are big time beginners when it comes to this industry so any help, contacts or suggestions are more than welcome.

If anyone is interested, the chair is simple with a geometrical theme hence I think its easy to produce (even though I might be overseeing something that more expert eyes can spot)

Anyway, thanks, and hope someone can help.

welcome to L J Cutu
I for sure canĀ“t help you
but it all depending on that you can get one to do it
that is relative close to you , becourse there will be alot of comunication
whyle you and the maker has the chair infront of you
and then there is the fraight cost of the delivery

good luck with the project
