My eBook ,“Starting and Operating A Woodworking Business,” contains all the information you need to start making money from the very first job. If your goal is to serve your woodworking customers professionally, make money from every project, get started without a major investment, and continue to enjoy woodworking fully, this book is for you.


In my business I could tell my customers exactly what I could do for them and know that I would be able to deliver because I was the one who would do the work and answer all their questions. If this is what you want, then my eBook “Starting and Operating A Woodworking Business” is the perfect guide for you.

Dear Bill,

I recently purchased your "
Starting and Operating A Woodworking Business" book and I would like to make some comments please.

Having been a part-time woodworker for almost 30 yrs, I had always wanted to start my own business but was never really quite sure about how to go about it. Your book describes the process in a clear, concise manner while at the same time advising of the potential pitfalls. This has helped me to go into my business with my eyes wide open. I especially like the simplified woodworking concept and will adapt some of my methods to this style in an effort to be more productive.

I also like the fact that you personally respond to emails. There are other products on the net that seem to be run by auto-responders, not humans!

I will be pleased to offer a personal testimonial should the need ever arise.


Thank you Bill. Kind regards.


Neil Rogers, Australia.

Custom Cabinets & Woodworking

Are you operating a woodworking business? Do you want to make money with your woodworking skills but haven't started because of fear of failure or of losing money that you simply don't have? Or, have you already started but are having difficulty getting customers and making a profit?


I know how that feels. I started my woodworking business with no capital, a few shop tools, and a lot of nerve, in a small 10 foot by 20 shop space. Gradually it grew into a 1,400 square foot space while remaining a one person business.

Being raised in the construction business, I had pretty good carpentry skills but I had a lot to learn

about furniture and cabinets. And my business skills were limited. Because of that, I made a lot of

costly mistakes getting started. Over time I refined my skills and learned profitable business

techniques. In spite of those early mistakes, I made my entire living from woodworking for more than

20 years.


If there had been someone to guide me during those early times, I could have avoided most of those

mistakes. The good thing is that I learned a lot from them and I didn't repeat them. Now you can learn

how to avoid all of the mistakes I made and hit the ground running.


Starting and Operating A Woodworking Business: How To Make Money With Your Skills," helps you avoid losing money and many other potential problems during your business startup. I won't tell you that this is easy to do. It is a lot of work but my book covers everything that worked for me for over 20 years.


With that information you will work effectively and profitably and enhance your present skills while operating a financially successful full-time or part-time woodworking business. You can start small and either grow a larger business or simply stay small and use your skills as a lucrative sideline. The choice is yours.

With my complete and comprehensive eBook is a complete guide that covers every step detail so nothing is left to chance and you can get started making money immediately.

Reach out to and sell potential woodworking customers in

your area.


Build quality projects quickly using simplified

woodworking methods to gain and please customers.


Create accurate and profitable woodworking project

quotes to ensure that every job is profitable.


Learn methods to ensure that you get paid in full for every

woodworking job you take on. This is critical to your

financial success.


Keep accurate records on your business activities to avoid IRS problems.

Starting And Operating A Woodworking Business contains much more valuable information as listed below. Everything you need for starting a woodworking business and making money with your skills.

Remember, everything in my eBook is based on my first-hand experience over more than 20 years. I sold every job, created every design, built every project, handled my own accounting and income tax preparation and I share all of that with you. These methods can work for you also.

The Projects and Project Drawings: With detailed instructions and

drawings of eight different projects, you will learn and understand the

simplified methods that will help you build quality projects quicker and

easier. You can practice the methods with these projects and even sell the completed projects or give them to family or friends. You can also

My eBook will help you make more money using your woodworking skills as a sideline or

in a full time woodworking business and I have included much more in it as listed below:


Drawings of Customer Projects: For most jobs, customers need to see drawings to make certain you know exactly what they want.

Business Forms: Also included are samples of the forms you need to

deal with your wood working customers when starting a woodworking

business. There is also a contract form and an addendum you can use for those cases where additional details or specifications are required.

To consistently make money with your woodworking skills requires adherence to some basic rules. The next few subjects outline those rules and help you to stay safe when starting a woodworking business.

Safety: Using power tools can be dangerous; many machines used in wood working can cause severe injuries in a split second of inattentiveness. Safety should be a top priority to every wood worker.

Ten Basic Rules: These rules help to ensure financial success. I suggest you commit them to memory for easy use.

Fitness: Self employment can be stressful and demanding, so physical,

mental and emotional fitness are covered in this section.
