    Enjoyed the video, took your advice and found a really cool hardwood store near me. Awesome.

  2. Andre on March 26, 2022 at 5:47 pm

    Whenever possible don’t poop in a clients home! That tip works for any business! Love solid business advice

  3. Louis Fivaz on March 26, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    SO incredibly helpful man!! Love this channel!!!

  4. Korey Williams on March 26, 2022 at 5:49 pm

    If you showed up to build me something wearing that horse costume I would be so happy.

  5. Mitch Conners on March 26, 2022 at 5:50 pm

    Information is solid dudes cringe though, wish people being informative Would do just that and stop trying to be Quirky

  6. Stephen Waite on March 26, 2022 at 5:51 pm

    In one of your future videos, I wish you would touch on the topic of vertical vs horizontal wood storage. Some of us that do woodworking on the side as a hobby find that stuff gets warped standing up. In all your shots you show that vertical storage (I think you said 16 ft high). Maybe it’s the quality of the wood? I would love to know your thoughts.

    another thing to consider in pricing is… overhead and profit. you can’t be a business without this. you get an hourly rate… but your business expenses and profit should also be accounted for outside of what you pay yourself.

    Thank you!

    Very good video can’t wait to try to adapt to locksmith service buisness. Love the cabinets 3 part, building some custom ones for my vans.

    Dude, I am usually not a big fan of the slide in the video transitions, but I have to give it to you… that slide on 2:50 was super AWESOME!!!! I rewound that bad boy like 20 times. I guess we all have our style… I am now a subscriber due to the slide and your great tips. You the man!

  11. Richard Meyer on March 26, 2022 at 5:55 pm

  12. ENZ PRINT CO. on March 26, 2022 at 5:57 pm

    Asked the client if I had permission to open the drawer I was there to repair. She said “oh of course, just socks in there”…there was also a dogs battery operated chew toy……………….😉

  13. Hugo Stare on March 26, 2022 at 5:59 pm

  15. Gabriel Rooks on March 26, 2022 at 6:02 pm

    So unhappy to have only found the channel now, but so excited to have found it, great content!

  22. K Wood on March 26, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Love your videos! Just FYI, I have learned a great deal from you and I appreciate you.

  23. Joe Bernardoni on March 26, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    could you please add a link to all your tools such as hand sander. Thanks!!

  24. Rob Colone on March 26, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    If anyone is located in the Northeast, there’s a company called Woodrich in Pennsylvania, awesome furniture, but also a huge selection of slabs and Craftwood.

  25. Stephen Brewster on March 26, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    Great video!
    I’m getting ready to go out on my own and there is a question that’s been weighing heavily on my mind. Have you accepted a project and told a client “sure, no problem, I can build that”, then get back to your shop and freak out wondering “how the heck am I going to build that?” This hasn’t happened to me yet, but thinking about it still makes me a little nervous. What has been your experience?

  26. Andres Torres on March 26, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Really great tips. Thank you. Got me to subscribe.

  27. knightnation on March 26, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    I subscribe just for the horse tbh lol I learned a lot thanks.

  29. MD 87 on March 26, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    When did this turn from woodworking to a TRT clinic. Haha

  30. Rocky Cagno on March 26, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    make more like this!!

  31. Roy Flood on March 26, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    Very helpful advice.

  32. just diggin it on March 26, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    I was laying flooring in a client’s house. Needed to move a lg dresser my brother and I opened 1 drawer each and found the play drawer all sorts of crazy things I couldn’t even look at her when she came home so funny.

  33. Ben Martelino on March 26, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    Thanks for going over this information!

  34. DevinAK49 on March 26, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    I’ll never sell anything, but I still clicked.

  35. Jordan Merchant on March 26, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Wait a minute….don’t poop in a client’s home? That explains why I can’t get any business. Lol.

  36. Devin Whall on March 26, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Love your videos. When your in between gigs would you recommend spending money making pieces with hopes of selling, or wait until you have another client request?

  37. !Zombeee on March 26, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    clicked the thumbnail thinking that keemstar started a woodworking channel x

  38. Yves Pausenberger on March 26, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    As a beginning woodworker I find it hard to set prices because I mostly make small things, so in my opinion people wouldn’t pay that much for something small. Aswell the fact that as a beginner, everything takes more time so the hours I would spend aren’t the hours a pro would put into it. How would you charge a client keeping this in mind?
    For example: I turn a little vase, I spend 7 hours on it and some material costs (free recycled wood & some fininsh I bought). I can’t charge €500 in my opinion, charging €35 feels more natural, but is little money for much work. Just wondering what you would do 🙂 Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!!

  39. Korey Williams on March 26, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Hard work is no joke. I build shipping crates all day and it’s not easy. Even tho literally every one in the factory will tell you it is. Yeah it’s really easy to cut a bundle of 1x12s, 1x8s,1x6s, and 2x4s then build 30 boxes a day. 44x24x22. Using a staple gun having to build the frame parts then stick the boxes together and stack them up 3 high… those things weigh like 80 lbs each 😐 great workout tho my shoulders and back muscles are getting jacked 😅

  40. TWC on March 26, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    How do you handle the aspect of joinery in a project? Some people could hardly care if something is built with pocket holes and then you have the rare breeds that have money and don’t mind dovetails and such. Do you cover that with the client up front and give options because that really determines time spent on a project as well I assume.

  41. August Biechy on March 26, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    First part of the testosterone test is the finger prick. If you are afraid of it, you’re low.

  49. Paul Bateman on March 26, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    I actually made your mighty Lego man for my grandson for Christmas. That took many hours, wonder how much I should charge him? 🙂 All good fun though as woodworking is only a hobby for me. I wish I could do it for a living

  50. Casper Espresso on March 26, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Never work hard if you can pay someone else to do it for cheaper. Personally, I love my immigrant housekeeper. I never hear complaints
