Has anybody noticed how the half-dozen or so major woodworking stores have been getting their product ideas straight from Shopnotes and similar magazines?
It seems that every time a ww magazine comes out with plans for a new jig, it shows up in the catalogs LIKE CLOCKWORK just a few months later. It is soooooooo annoying!!!
But it is only annoying because I didn’t think to capitalize on it before they did. I wish I had been smart enough to figure out that all I had to do is steal other people’s ideas and then manufacture imitations to sell to the growing consumer market of woodworkers.Anyway, for anybody who wants to be a millionair, here is the formula:
- Read Shopnotes and Fine Woodworking magazine
- Make the same jigs out of anodized aircraft aluminum in some flashy signature color
- Create a website to sell your jig and watch the cash flow into your bank account from your armchair
If this works, hopefully you will be kind enough to send me some of the money. Or at least the fancy jigs.
