7 Deadly Mistakes When Setting Up Shop
If you are looking to set up a shop on a budget and are doing so for the first time, you need to first consider what space do you have available for your shop and what you are hoping to make in your shop, not necessarily in that order.
For example, a crafts person looking to make some gifts like boxes is different from a crafts person looking to set up a business selling gifts in quantity to make a living.
A DIY person with a home shop looking to make cabinets, tables, and furniture for their home is different from someone crafting the same things for customers. Some people are looking to be a woodworker primarily in the old school of hand tools while others are primarily a power tool person with little interest in hand tools. Do your interest lie in fine woodworking like wood carving, lathe turning, scroll sawing...or carpentry or furniture building or just furniture restoration?
