First off, Ramesh, slow down, I am not trying to insult you. Congratulations on your degree, but that degree doesn’t make you more educated than me, it only means you went to a Canadian University. I went to an American University.
Second, I came on this site with a simple line on the bottom of my postings with my website name, not the entire page from my website telling people how great my guitars are in my profile. You will not sell any furniture here. But if you are somewhat kind to the members, like most, you will learn techniques that can save you thousands of dollars in building your furniture. That is what this site is about, and that is why you are taking so much pressure. Don’t try to sell a lot of master woodworkers on your woodworking expertise. Don’t condemm these people, they know more about woodworking than you will ever forget. They also are not just from the US. We have members from all over the world.

And if Artemano owes you $22,000 USD, you picked the wrong company to do business with, did you not?
I was in the furniture business for about 6.5 years, and I learned that it is very competitive, very cut throat. You should already know this. I have been in manufacturing in the USA, Germany, Mexico and China for 29 years. So I know how a product should be made and how to sell it. Am I the smartest person? No, and I do not want to be. I do have common sense, and a good business sense. If Artemano has your furniture, and you have no money yet, I certainly hope you have a way to get the money.

By the way, if you are in India, kind of late to be up, is it not? Should be about 2:00AM there right now, depending on where you live.
Anyway, if you come here to ask about how to improve your furniture, you should realize that the people on this website will listen and give back, but not if you come in with a sales pitch everytime, acting like you are selling. This is the largest woodworking site of private woodworkers in the world. There is more knowledge here on wood and furniture than any other place in the world. I suggest you cool your jets a little and try to listen. Don’t try to sell wooden furniture to a woodworker. We will simply build your designs and sell it ourselves, if we choose. And a lot of us have shops that probably rival a good part of your factory.
Try again, as a pure woodworker, not as some sales guy from an Indian furniture comany.
