Wood Profits “How To Start a Woodworking Business With No Capital”
Starting a woodworking business will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make in your life…
Your woodworking business will provide you with a great part-time income while allowing you to spend more quality time with the family. Best of all, you will have FUN doing what you love.
Lets face it… times are tough right now. People are losing their jobs and struggling to make ends meet. If you’ve been thinking about starting a home based business, it needs to be something fun and easy to start.
The good news is, I can show you how to get a nice extra part-time income by turning your passion into profits and working right from your garage… and the best thing is, you DON’T need to be a professional woodworker to succeed.
The first thing you will need to decide is what kind of woodworking you are going to do. The options include making custom furniture, toys, small chests and boxes and building big projects like stick built or log houses.
No matter which type of woodworking you decide to do you will need some tools. Some of the tools that will be needed no matter what include;
- A table saw-Choose the highest quality and biggest that you can afford. The key to buying a table saw is that it must have a solid table and the miter gauge and fence must be solid.
- Hammers-No matter what kind of woodworking you are going to do, you will need a set of hammers. The choice of hammer depends on the work. You will always need a simple 16 oz claw hammer. But for framing you will want a framing hammer which has a longer handle. For work around the shop a ball peen hammer or a dead blow hammer comes in handy.
- Square-Any project you make using wood will require the use of a square. There are many types available including Try squares, rafter squares and combination squares.
- Clamps-Clamps are used for so many things in a woodworking business, including clamping 2 or more pieces of wood together when glueing, holding parts when fastening them together and holding blocking. You can never have too many clamps in a Woodworking shop.
- Hand Saws-Some of the most versatile tools in any woodworking business are saws. Whether old fashioned hand saws or power saws, the type of saws you buy will be dependent on the type of work you are doing. The options include skill saws, chainsaws, Japanese saws, jig saws, and biscuit cutters just to name a few. Now matter how many power saws you have in the shop sometimes it is more efficient to use a small hand saw for delicate jobs.
- Measuring Tape-The measuring tape is the one tool that you can never be without in the woodworking industry. I find that the perfect length of tape is a 25 footer, but I read an article the other day that was commenting on useless tool options and on the list was the last 13 ft of a 25 foot measuring tape. I guess that is true if your shop is only 10 feet long, and you only do small projects.
There is an almost endless supply of tools that you can buy for your business. Of course one of the best things about using tools in your business is that you can go tool shopping once in awhile. The other great thing is that the price of the tools is an expense for your business and can be claimed on your taxes.
