I made these coasters using my plunge router. They are about 4” in diameter and have been finished with TUng Oil and a polyurethane sealant.
If you like them could I ask a small favor? Would you please answer a few questions for me?
The reason I’m asking these questions is because I’ve been trying to launch a small business for a few years now. Turns out I really didn’t understand what I was doing so enrolled in a startup incubator program in Boise… which explains the Idaho insert… :)
Anyway… the first thing this program asked me to do is to interview people who are in my target market. As my products are geared towards woodworkers I thought I would post these questions here. I hope you don’t mind because all I’m really trying to do is figure out what types of projects you like to build and if projects like building coasters, Christmas ornaments, necklace pendants, etc… interest you or not. So any type of feedback about the type of woodworking you enjoy would be useful and greatly appreciated!!!
1.) What type of projects do you enjoy working on, how long do they take you to build, and how much are you willing to spend on your project?
2.) If you were going to purchase a kit to help you build something like these coasters would you be more inclined to purchase if the wood needed to complete the build were included?
3.) Do you own a router and if so do you own a plunge base for the router?
4.) Have you ever made an inlay before and if so did you use a plunge router or was it more along the lines of a marquetry project?
Thank you for your time and insight!!! Kurtis ~|:-)
