Welcome Al, we also have a small custom cabinet shop, so mostly residential kitchens with some commercial cabinetry mixed in. We just added a 25” woodmaater and are excited about getting into custom moldings. I am sure we could learn about doing custom moldings from you. How do you market and sell your custom molding jobs?

We just opened full time last July and we have 4 full time workers, though one is semi retired trim carpenter and works full time as work is available.

Jerry, What we did is paid a guy to make up pamplets showing our services. Then we sat down with the phone book and started stuffing envolopes. We have several contractors that we deal with on a regular bases. We also placed a few ads on craigslist. We do some wholesale and some retail. itseems to be going decent. At this point is is me and my freind in the shop. Where are you located? If you need any help drop me a message and I will give my email.
