I have been in the furniture business for almost 25 years and I have had to do lots of work I would rather not do including working as a contractor. I agree in part with Loren in that if I were to start over I would specialize . I feel there’s more involved than just specializing in a particular product, It also involves how talented you are, what kind of market place your in and how unique your product is and all said and done it involves some luck as to what contacts you make and who your clients are. In today’s market I see major woodworking talents struggling to make a living so I don’t know that any of the normal rules of our woodworking business rules are really in play the same as they would be in a better market.
