Woodworking Supplies
Written by derryck

Let’s face it; woodworking supplies are one of the items you consider may already have a reasonable back stock. By woodworking supplies, we are referring to hardwoods or softwoods types of supplies etc. This is one of the primary areas that separate a true businessperson and a hobbyist. There’s only one-way to buy raw materials for a business: wholesale, wholesale, wholesale. If you are buying materials from a retailer, regardless of whether they were on sale or not, you are paying the retailers profit margin and overhead. To really effectively find raw materials, you’ll need to seek out wholesalers or distributors and buy materials in larger quantities than your previous retail purchases.


Once you’ve planned your initial budget for outgoing money, you need to make a plan to get incoming money. Most woodworkers find the process of planning their rates troublesome. We’ll discuss a variety of methods for planning your billing rates.

Holy Land Wood Crafts & Olive Wood

A glimpse into the process of making olive wood products in a small shop just out side of Bethlehem. I'm just amazed that this craftsman still has all his fingers.

 

Just amazing 

Where is that OHS officer when you need him. No eye/face protection, no guards, no dust collection, no emergency stop, no spectator control. Certainly looks like someone has been watching out for him. Its hard to imaging that you could sit there all day and not make a mistake. Still I've counted his fingers and I believe he has all ten.

Safety issues aside it is a simple business using simple woodworking tools. Similar to a craft business my wife used to run. She made wooden fish. Yes, Wooden Fish. It was quite successful till her life situation changed and she couldn't spend enough time on them any more. Children have that effect on mothers
