I am looking into doing more furniture than just beds and I thought I would try making mission style couches,chairs, ottomans, end tables, coffee tables, and other things for the living room, dining room, and office. I was wondering what would sell the best and if there is any websites or places I could get ideas from. Any thoughts or ideas would be appiciated.

nate, Building couches, chairs, ottomans, end tables, etc will be about the same as for your beds. It will be up to you to find the market that will buy custom made furniture in a certain style. Now that you have a customer base started with your beds, you at least have a good starting point for your other furniture. Have any of your cliente’s ask you whether you built anything other then beds? This can be a good indicator. Good luck and look forward to seeing some of your new items.

I look forward to seeing what else you build. I also like your courage to branch out.

Thanks for the comments. It will be a few months before I have pictures of my stuff on here. I am getting ideas right now then I will make my own desings which then I will add my own ideas and then I will make the furniture. I will try to post pictures of it as I go along. If I remember to.
