Time consuming. Applying the face frame to the lower bookcase. Photo taken from this blog post.
I am curious about this. How does one transition from woodworking as a part-time, doing projects for friends sort of thing to a sustainable full-time job?
After finishing the Scott bookcase, I have a few thoughts:
- During this project, my day job suffered.
- During this project, responsibilities in my personal life suffered.
- I did not make enough profit on this job to justify #1 and #2.
Also, to charge that kind of money, I would have had to change my process so that the work would have been of higher quality. In doing so, the project would have taken longer and therefore added to it's cost.
Anyone visiting this blog have ideas on this?
