Woodworking is an excellent hobby and it is one that can actually be quite profitable as well. Woodworking involves creating items that are needed such as tables, desks, spoons, bed frames, headboards, book cases, rocking chairs, bird houses, cutting boards, benches, wine holders, coasters and so much more.
These are all items that people typically buy in stores in order to use in their homes. As a result, there are many easy woodworking projects to sell where a healthy profit can be made. This is definitely an in-demand skill and even simple items that beginners make can result in significant income. We will cover a few of these projects and how they can be successfully sold.
First of all, it should be noted that before selling any woodworking projects, it is important to ensure that they are made up to standard. This means that proper adhesives should be used, nails should not be protruding and the item should be a quality item that will stand the test of time. Therefore, it is advisable that some time should be taken to improve one’s skills before selling any woodworking projects.
With that said, some of the most popular pieces to make include corner tables, desks, chairs, headboards and bookshelves. These are items that just about everyone needs in their home and as a result, there are a lot of potential customers.
One of the best ways to sell these items is to create a page on Facebook that is promoted to people in that geographic area through the use of Facebook ads. Now, it will cost money to run the ads, however, a small budget of $5 per day can be set. When setting up the Facebook page, be sure to fully fill out the page with lots of pictures of each piece and add a price. Facebook even has an inbuilt “buy now” function that can be utilized to sell on the page itself. Also, be sure to include other forms of contact such as an email address and phone number.
In addition to posting the pieces and promoting them via Facebook ads, a Shopify store can also be set up and ads can be run to the store. However, it is critical that high quality pictures are taken of each piece, from multiple angles. Also, with a Shopify store, ads can not only be run on Facebook, but also other channels such a Instagram, Pinterest, Google ads and other types of social networks.
Another great way to sell woodworking projects is at fairs, flea markets and even garage sales. These events attract a lot of people and as a result, it can be fairly easy to sell all the pieces given that they are properly made and of high quality.
