Show Topic: Making Your Woodworking Hobby Profitable

woodworking make money profitable crafted podcast
  • Johnny: Find an item you can make efficiently and make a bunch of them. Etsy, craft fairs, Craigslist, Facebook, friends and family.
  • James: You got to LOVE what you do before it will ever make money. Look for something you can make with a high value to time ratio. Next find some way you can make it differently to set yourself apart.

Q & A:

Brad Ward: Along the profitable line... what are your opinions on making many of one thing, versus making many different items? I feel like high end unique projects would provide a higher yield as opposed to lots of the same thing.

Jesse Stephen: How did you all start getting clients, like good ways to self promote?
