Hi everyone
After much pondering,soul searching and debating I have decided to jump off the deep end to try my hand at selling my wares on Custom Made, a site that after talking to other members there seems to be the place to be if you want to get lots of exposure for your woodworking. With over 100,000 web hits a month and a great staff to help out, I’m feeling pretty good that my investment will pay off. Follow this link to my page and let me know what you think.

Thanks Grizzman
Time will tell. From what I heard from some of the other members they did really good or really bad so we shall see. I wouldn’t mind having too much work.

Let everyone know how you make out. I’m curious to see how 100,000 hits/month translates into sales at the individual level. Good luck!

You do some very impressive work and see no reason why you would not make money doing this. Good Luck.

God Bless

Mike your profile looks great! I’ll be sure to mention some of your work on CustomMade’s upcoming facebook and twitter updates.

Your page and wares looks fantastic. I checked into custom made a while back – just poking around- and Imust have filled out some information somewhere along the line- and in a few weeks time the guy who owns the site – basically a one man band- actually called me to see if I was interested in signing up etc. etc. He was a very personable fellow and we had a nice chat about the site. I have to say that if my own experience is any indication, I believe the customer service of custom made is probably excellent. Good luck! :)
