Change Wood Into Gold

By Stephen Bucaro

Today, everything is a cold plastic manufactured product.
In the "old days", everything was painstakingly
hand-crafted from wood. People love the quality and warmth
of hand-crafted wood products. If you like to work with
your hands, you can profit from the demand for these

If you are inexperienced with woodworking, you can start
by making simple scroll saw puzzles and wood toys. You can
see some examples of the type of products you can make at where Brad sell's them for
$4.00 to $9.00.

You will find free downloadable patterns at the Skill
Power Tools Web site:
or you can purchase patterns like "The Little Choo Choo"
at the Wood Toys and Joys Web site:

When you get a little more skill, you can make the kind of
products sold at the Wood Expression's Web site:
For example, they sell a 19 x 21 inch oak shelf for $30.00.
The Wooden Wood Art Web site:
sells beautiful wood letter signs for $4.00 to $5.00. They
also sell custom personalized signs. Check out: where they sell cute crafty
personalized wood signs for $10.00 and up.

When you advance to larger, higher quality work you might
make products like those offered by The Woodcrafting Co. at where they sell hardwood
TV trays and display cases for $700.00 and more.

You will find hundreds of woodworking project plans at the web site: for $10.00 and up. A good source
for quality hardwoods, woodworking materials, power and
hand tools, is Woodworkers Source which has stores in
Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona.

Tips for a wood craft products Web site:

- On your Web site, highlight the fact that you can
make custom and personalized wood craft products.
Customization is what puts your work a step above
manufactured products, and allows you to charge a premium

- You can generate extra profits by selling kits, patterns
and instructions that let your fellow woodworkers copy
your wood craft products. You will be surprised how many
people who bought a pattern will return later to purchase
a finished poduct.

- It is very important to display good pictures of your
products on your web site, but one problem I frequently
find at wood craft product sites is a total disregard for
Web page load times. Most people access the web over a 56K
dial-up connection. The size of a Web page, including all
the images displayed on the page, should be less than
200 KBytes.

People yearn for the quality and warmth of hand-crafted
wood products. Don't limit your sales to your Web site.
Hand-crafted wood products are one of the premier items
sold at Web auction sites, craft fairs and craft malls.
If you like to work with your hands, you can turn wood
into gold!
