I want to start by saying I have some decent woodworking skills and have a little space where I can create some furniture. I don't intend on modifying homes or anything crazy like that, lol
I do have plans and intent on making things such as speaker stands, maybe some smaller HT units for shelving amps, receivers, turntables, etc.
This is all brainstormed ideas and I haven't done anything yet, so I am in the VERY early stages-- all in my head. I am nervous as heck to be honest since I'm scared I will fail. Stupid-- I know, but it's true and how I feel.
What made me lean towards making stuff is I remember last summer, I was looking online and at brick and mortar furniture shops and never found what I was looking for. When I DID find something that I wanted to buy, the price of a basic HT stand was over $1000.
I do intend on having someone cut out and work with good quality glass, but this is kind of far ahead, since I am again, in the brainstorming process.
My goal is to offer custom builds for a higher price, but will create blueprints of "standard" and basic HT furniture and create those once I get orders, and NOT charge an arm and a leg for it. These standard items will be sold the same to everyone, unless they want it customized which will cost a little more.
I plan to start within my city and maybe the small towns surrounding my city. Hopefully, one day, I can expand and do shipping across Canada.
Any ideas, advice or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
