Being able to pick up a piece of lumber and transform it into furniture is like magic. But, when you’re getting started, all of the tools, plans, and how-tos can be overwhelming and seem complicated.

We will also share everything that we have learned about making woodworking projects to sell – and how to actually turn this hobby into a profitable business!
