CFT 97J Starting a Woodworking Business

Bridging the gap between an exciting hobby and a lucrative business is something that frightens many woodworkers. There are business skills that are unique to woodworking but are sometimes difficult to acquire. In this two-day class, students will explore topics that will help them gain these needed skills. How to set up an efficient shop, how to comply with governmental regulations, how to purchase raw materials, how to market your product, and how to build a good reputation are just a few of the subjects that will be discussed.

Note: Not all classes are offered each semester.
The Palomar School Schedule page lists the current semester’s classes.
