« Part 1: Paid off. Part 2 of Years of Woodworking series Part 3: overwhelmed with woodwork »

4 more tables as of Oct 19th. I haven’t got any word if the other ones have sold. but it sure makes me happy that I’m getting work for the business. If the orders get doubled I might have to look for a larger space to work out of, Thats just a small problem that I would not have a problem dealing with.

Next project is a cherry 6 drawer dresser, Photo’s will follow on this suite.

Proves it is possible to compete with the Chinese if you have unique designs,well made furniture and a sensible price. Using reclaimed wood appears to save you money but if the time element becomes important recycling timber might not be the best option. Really nice product and you deserve your success. As a matter of interest what are the dimensions and what finish did you use.
