« Part 8: Cut, Sand, Repeat. Cut, Sand, Repeat... Part 9 of My Small Business: Spud Wood Works series Part 10: Website Launch! »

Hello Readers,

Wow its been a really long time since I have blogged anything… Spud has kept me really busy. But today I think I have something to share that I have been realizing is the next step for me and subsequently Spud.

I have come to the conclusion that I love woodworking, I love making things myself and seeing the satisfaction that people have with my product. A few weeks ago I decided that I would begin saving money from my business to open a brick and mortar storefront. That’s right, I am planning the stages of my eventual gravitation towards full time woodworking and retail.

Currently I am working on saving money and raising funds either through fund raising programs or grants. I also started working on floor plan ideas and product descriptions and modeling. As I take this journey I will keep you all (who may be interested) updated. – My indiegogo campaign in case you wanted to see it.

I followed your link to indiegogo and wanted to let you know that the links on that page to your ETSY account did not work. Good luck and I hope it works out for you.

Have your say...
