A buddy at work and I were talking and he mentioned that his dad, who had a stroke, had a shopsmith in the basement and he wanted my help draggin it to the curb. I mentioned I was a woodworker and he asked me to come over and take a look and he would sell it to me. What should I be looking for? No idea on details at this point. Is there a good reference for prices etc? Jeff in KC
I'll give you an answer from another hobbyist view.
I have made a few furniture pieces and they are for around the house but I raffled a wine rack off and I had some business cards beside it for people to take if they needed anything made, I do renovations as my full time so that was on the card as well. I have yet to receive a call from that event. Almost 2 years ago. So depending on the business whether it be fine furniture or cabinets will determine the success story. I do furniture as a hobby and they are mostly projects I want to have but would sell if the price is right. I also am fairly young compared to most woodworkers in my area so lack of experience can really show if you have too high a price tag

Awesome job Mike! You're really moving along now. Those tails look nice and tight. Nice job. Dont worry too much about the vise installation. It looks more stressful than it is. Just take it step by step just like in the video.
There are a few of us (myself not included) that do this for a living. Most here are hobbyists that have sold a piece or two and might be able to help. I might suggest you number your questions and ask them here. As long as they aren't too long winded, you'll likely get some great answers.
