The internet has opened up a whole new world of opportunities for making money with woodworking. While it is great that it is possible to reach such a wide range or potential customers many woodworkers want to know what wood products sell the best. Here you will find out what the woodworking projects that make money are and how you can get started.
In a previous article on best selling wood products I discussed how you can use eBay to see what is already selling and to see what other successful woodworkers are already doing. I recommend taking a look at that article as it is useful for finding out what is hot right now.
When building woodworking projects it is a good idea to think simple, especially when starting out. The simplier the project that less wastage their will be as and the project will quicker to complete. One mistake that some beginner woodworkers make is to not to account for their time properly. Even if you enjoy what you are doing you should not view your time as a free commodity.
When accounting for how profitable an item you should include a reasonable rate for your own labor. Even if your own woodworking business is only a part time enterprise it will help you to evaluate what projects you should be working on and which are better suited for hobby pieces.
