Wood, being both beautiful and practical, has always been a popular material to make products from. Today, many people continue to seek out, and pay good amounts for wood products. A woodworking business specializes in producing such products, carving furniture or other items from wood.
A woodworking hobby turned business makes money by producing and selling wood products. These products may be furniture (e.g. Adirondack chairs, cabinets or dressers), or smaller items, like jewelry boxes, smartphone holders, manual coffee grinders, cutting boards or wooden beer mugs. Let your creativity take over. People appreciate “handmade”, but don’t have the time or know-how to do it. You can do this!
A woodworking business may be a small home business that serves customers in the local area, or it can be a regional or national franchise. Stickley is an example of a woodworking business that started out locally in Central New York but has grown to become a nationally recognized furniture brand. Another example of a business that’s grown is National Woodwork, which is based in Pittsburgh but has clients in many states.
