    Well.....

    In my travels yesterday, I stopped in a gun store to look at a varmint rifle. The manager was my salesman. He's interested in displaying a couple pistol presentation boxes. Then, in the liquor store where I get my Dell Bac, that manager wants a steady supply of wine gift boxes. And, the owner of that knife and gun finishing supply house is interested in a few knife cases. Told them all that I'm slow. None seemed to mind. Looks like I'm gonna be busy for a while. Gotta get the table done and another rifle case. Then, start on little boxes. Fun times ahead.
  2. There was a topic recently about custom woodwork, which I've now lost track of. I heard Nancy in a presentation last weekend and meant to post some of here thoughts, but could not find those either at the time. Probably the best advice I got before I quit my job and started my business from from a (former) custom woodworker, "The world is full of ex-custom woodworkers paying off their IRS debts." That was enough to lead me in another direction. Here's one of Nancy's recent posts http://www.finewoodworking.com/2017/08/14/nancy-hillers-reality-checklist
  3. Howdy folks, my family and I here sitting around and throwing out names for my business restart up. For years, the last 25 years I have had the name Courtland Woodworks and I owned the url www.courtlandwoodworks.com I lost the url, and I want my business name to be the same as my url for a website showcasing my work. I have to have Courtland in the name somewhere, it's my grand dad's name. And it's my middle name. The main production of my shop is chairs, and other furniture accessories, but mainly chairs. So I am putting out a calling to you guys, can you help me with some business name ideas? Here are some we came up with, none of them sound appealing to me. courtlandcrafts.com (business name, Courtland Crafts) courtlandartsandcrafts.com (business name, Courtland Arts and Crafts) courtlandrockers.com (business name, Courtland Rockers) courtlandchairs.com (business name, Courtland Chairs) One I was partial too, but my family struck it down, was courtlandwoods.com or Courtland Woods. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated, don't be afraid to get wild, the more creativity the better! Hey, if we end up using your idea, we'll throw a one year subscription for Woodcraft Magazine your way! Thanks for any ideas folks!

    EZ wood tools sold again....

    I was a little worried about EZ Wood tools after Jorgenson bought them and then they (Jorgy) went under. But I guess the firm has been sold again.

    HERE WE GO AGAIN!

    WELL HERE IT IS 2015 AND AS USUAL I'M ANTSY AND NEED TO GET SOMETHING GOING. 5 YEARS IN THIS hockey sticks HOLE WITH NO SHOP AND ONLY A FEW HOURS A WEEK IN MY FRIENDS WOOD SHOP AIN'T GONNA CUT IT NO MORE. I'VE BEEN WAY TOO PATIENT WAITING ON OTHER PEOPLE. SO FOR THE NEW YEAR, GUESS WHAT? I'M GONNA HUNT SOMETHING DOWN AND KILL IT!!!! NOW BEFORE YOU GET YOUR PANTIES IN A BUNCH AND THE COPS SHOW UP AT MY DOOR HEAR ME OUT. I STARTED A LANDSCAPING/CONTRACTING/TREE BUSINESS BACK WHEN I WAS MARRIED (EONS AGO). I WAS AROUND 24 YEARS OLD AND DID PRETTY GOOD AT IT TILL THE DIVORCE. I'M NOW 53? AND I DECIDED TO DO IT AGAIN. SO INTO THE VALLEY OF DEATH I RIDE WITH THE 600, READY TO DO BATTLE AGAIN. I'M MAKING APOTHECARY CABINETS AND TEA CABINETS IN DIFFERENT SIZES, ALL WITH DRAWER FRONTS THAT CAN BE CUSTOMIZED (BY ME). SO RAGE, RAGE AGAINST THE DYING OF THE LIGHT. I WILL NOT GIVE IN WITHOUT A FIGHT!!! AND IF I DIE UPON THE TABLESAW WITH A POUCH FULL OF SCREWS AND A SCREWGUN IN MY HAND, SO BE IT!!!! ONCE MORE INTO THE FRAY!!!!! (ADVICE AND IDEAS ALWAYS APPRECIATED!!!!)
  6. May I pick your brains please? I see many of you are selling your work and I could use your knowledge/experience. Researching online I keep running into those 16k plans and "woodworking profits." I've been around the block and recognize them for what they are and I'm not interested. My business experience has mostly been with services. Real Estate, Truck and Equipment Repair, Website Creation, Telephone and Data Services, etc... This will be my first experience in creating products to sell. I have experience in sales, marketing and inventory control. I'm familiar with Etsy, Ebay, Amazon and Personalization Mall. I'll offer drop shipping through contacts found through Worldwide Brands. I will create my own website and will attend the few Craft Shows in Anchorage and sell at the Saturday Market in the summer months. I will focus on quality over quantity. Because of physical limitations my products must fist in 2' cube and preferably less than 15 lbs. I've created products specifically for Homebrewers, Craft Breweries and Beer lovers. I'll also be adding some more traditional wood craft products like cutting boards, serving trays, knives and knife blocks, children's toys etc. I'm setting up my shop from scratch. I'll need mostly benchtop power tools. What tools/brands would you recommend. I have a Jet Cabinet Table Saw and a Chop Saw already. I have hand held power tools as well. Circular Saw, orbital sander, jig saw, drill. What advice do you wish you were given before starting your woodworking business? What have you learned that has led you to be successful? How do you price your products? Like any business, I know it's not going to be easy. Success is not going to happen overnight. I'm not expecting to get rich. But, I'm willing to put in the time and the effort to improve my craft. So there you go folks, what should this newbie know? Thank you in advance for any and all comments. I appreciate it. Bob

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
