If you are interested in getting into a creative home business, a home woodworking business is one of the easiest businesses to get into. For a home woodworking business, you can use your very own garage or even an out-building on your property. The cost of woodworking equipment is very small and you may already have all that you need. If so, your start-up cost would be virtually nothing.
Basically all you need to start a home woodworking business is a small band saw, a small drill press, a small radial chop saw, belt sander, hand held sabre saw (jig saw), a hand sander and maybe a small router. The cost for all of this equipment would range from about $ 325 to $ 400. As you can see, the start-up costs for a home woodworking business is very small and if you have all or any of this equipment it is virtually nothing. You can buy plans for all types of items you can make. Your local library may also be a source for plans as well.
You can build outdoor items such as, bird houses, bird feeders, chain hanging swings, glider swings, lawn chairs, picnic tables, arbors, garden bridges, signs and countless other items. You can advertise and sell your items yourself or you can develop a business with garden centers, hardware stores, chain stores, hobby stores and the like. You can also develop a business making bird houses and bird feeders in finished or kit form for schools, groups, scouts, churches, communities, neighborhood developments and other organizations looking for something to sell for fund raising. You can make picnic tables for families, churches, schools, businesses, recreational areas, cities, counties, parks and other organizations. If you prefer to build larger things, you can build storage buildings and develop a good business of doing just that only. If you prefer, you can also make items for inside the home, such as, shelves/shelving, desks, computer work desks, tables, racks, furniture,etc. The sky is virtually the limit.
