I do a little of every thing. I take cabinet jobs but only the ones that people are willing to pay for custom cabinets along with custom wood shop work, a small amount of furniture repair, I teach adult woodworking for my local community collage and from my shop ,that’s more of an advertisement than a large profit center and I own a contracting business that I do residential and commercial remodeling and woodworking for places like our VA hospital,post office and some custom homes.
All of these different avenues are necessary because my market place is so small . The town I live has less the 1200 people and the next largest town has a little under 20,000 population. I feel that places that have larger populations also has more competition . I think this is where local marketing pays off best when you have the population that has enough disposable income to buy custom furniture, then all you have to do is convince them your the one to do the work for them. This is a category I’ve never had a problem with. You easiest way to convince them is to do quality work.
