Woodworking Projects That Sell – Make Money Woodworking – Low Cost High Profit

Woodworking Projects That Sell – Make Money Woodworking – Low Cost High Profit

Grow your woodworking business with “smalls”! Ready for part 4!?! Often, smaller items are looked over by new builders because they are looking for that one build that they can sell for a ton of money. They aren’t considering the cost of the build and the time spent making it. In this video, I discuss the power of smalls. Ultimately any business comes down to profit margins. I’ll give you a few examples of how selling items that anyone can afford can generate crazy sales with very little cost of goods sold!

Sometimes we overthink things when the most profitable items we are looking past. Let’s change that.

Some have noticed that I wear electronic hearing protection vs traditional muffs and asked why. The reason is that I need to be able to hear my machines in case there are issues as well as be aware if someone comes into my shop (I don’t want a jump scare… I like my fingers and hearing). Basically, I can hear everything but at safe levels. They are made for the range but perfect for the workshop! So I worked out a discount for you guys!

    I have found over the yrs……… large items mean more money on sales and more money on the build…… it also means more time on the build and more time on the sale because not everyone at the marketplace can afford large pricey items……. that being said at the end of a normal day I might sell one 1200.00 farm table or bed that will need to be delivered or changed to meet a color……. but I always manage to sell 800 to 1000 in smalls every weekend with no effort or sales pitch………… and most smalls are made with scraps !!!!!…….. no such thing as a bad day selling smalls !!

  2. Rick Vermeulen on July 24, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Love yr vids, especially that crooked tower behind you. Do you have plans, i live in Curacao so won’t be a competition for you. Thanks

  3. CosmicBrambleclawV2 on July 24, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Another benefit of smalls (it may be mentioned later in the video) is that they’re super easy for people with hardly any tools 😀

    My neighbor (cousin) is gifting me a old shed building he no longer needs so I’ll soon have a little space to work out of and can slowly crank out small things and work on fixing my truck (1976 El Camino I got as a project) which would allow me to expand even further 😀

  4. Woolf81 on July 24, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Where do you go to see the number of sales?

  5. MrWetnutz on July 24, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    What are you putting on treated wood to make it safe to bring into the house? The fence picket ideas seem very interesting except I’ve never heard of a non treated fence picket. I’ve always been told never to use treated lumber for something intended to go inside the house. Have I been told wrong? Is treated lumber safer now?

  6. A Three Dog Night on July 24, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    New subscriber & thanks for all of these segments on the how to make money ideas, trust me I need all the help that one can get, been disabled around 30 years now but finally had to give up trying to work for anyone just couldn’t hold out an 8-hr. day. My best friend has a pile of some type of lumber not certain what it is but it’s black & about a 3×3, well somewhere close to that he found some guys throwing it away & told him to get all he wants, so he loaded his truck & came back for more, but they were gone. I forgot if it was by a railroad track or what I’ll have to ask him again, but you gave me some good ideas to use it for, making money baby, oh Yeah!!!!!!!!! That’s what I like, & need. That way I could save up for some better tools I had to sell while waiting on disability, 2 years is a long time to wait so not much left except basic hand tools, but higher items were sold of course. If God willing all I need now is more tools, concepts & a branding iron maybe. Not certain how to get my name out there? Any ideas on that, yes, I listened but not certain what I should choose, at the moment I’m guessing the tags or iron with a logo or name?

  7. Chris Garcia on July 24, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    May I ask how much you make a year from selling your small projects

  8. shembop on July 24, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Where would you suggest a person starts in trying to sell? As in website, service etc. I have a couple projects I am going to do with some boys at camp this summer, and actually was hoping to quick sell some. That way I wouldn’t be saying you can probably sell these, or sell them for x price, but have something concrete to encourage them with.

  9. paul rayo on July 24, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    Hello Matthew. First off, love the channel. Built my own jig for trellis making, and wow, does it make the job super quick. I wanted to ask you what "venue" you’ve had the most success for selling smalls? Etsy, FB market place, local trade shows etc. etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Keep up the great work.

  10. Sherry Bradshaw on July 24, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    I love your videos.
    I’ve never shipped anything this heavy. Would you please share on the most economical way to ship? Thank you

  11. Senior Tips on July 24, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Thank you so much for your ideas. Starting out late in life and needing to work from home. You’ve given me some hope in your videos. You are extremely talented so wish me luck.

  12. Jacob Edwards on July 24, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Hey Matt, love the videos. Do you provide, attach the mounting brackets on the hanging stuff, or leave that up to the people that buy it?

  13. Julia Bishop on July 24, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Thanks so much for your encouragement and support and suggestions. LOVE IT! As a single female with limited income I needed this

  14. michael bugni on July 24, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    Good ideas and inspirational. The only thing about pallets is they have pesticides, fungicides, and been treated for protection against water. I would hate to sell some child a wood wall art piece that is toxic.

  15. Robert Samuelson on July 24, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Which Part of Kentucky, Paducah here.

  16. 8 Bit Engineer on July 24, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Cool project ideas. Definitely worth adding to my project arsenal.

    RIP for the people who live in states with no discernable features to the shape (my home Colorado, and previously Wyoming).

  17. Making with Matt on July 24, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    9:44 How did they find enough pallets to make 8500 of those? Calculator says they turned over topside of 1 million from those sales at 118 per. Not at all bad

  18. Kmass on July 24, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Dude you have given me so many ideas yo start out with, also what part if KY you im from Lexington area

  19. aux1z11 on July 24, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    It’s time to get off my can and start making some smalls as I have a 120 year old barn that the wind took the roof off and it was already full of wood and I have around 200 pallets and have my own woods with lots of walnut oak maple

  20. Crystal Silva on July 24, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Do you have a tutorial on how to build a splitting furniture like the one behind you in your video?

  21. J Armstrong on July 24, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    PNA to the naysayers. Keep encouraging people to be creative and learn to make money; big or small projects. That’s what it is all about. Great suggestions, Bud!!!

  22. Neil MacKenzie on July 24, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Thank you Matthew, This morning , while walking my dog I spotted a pile of cedar fence lumber in an alley. It’s old and weathered, with faded red paint. I thought "Gee, I should make something out of those boards." I came across your channel, and now I’m heading back to get those boards! I’ll send a photo when I’m done.

  23. Brian Impecoven on July 24, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Obviously, the "it" items change on a regular basis. How do you know when to look for the new "hot" item? Where do you find your inspiration?

  24. James Fain on July 24, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Where is the best place to sell items?

  25. Ken Stephens on July 24, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Cool stuff !!! Found you on accident, keeping you on purpose.

  26. Andrew Dennehy on July 24, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    There’s no polite way of saying this. I’m not from the US. Can someone please translate what he’s making these from? I’m hearing ‘furng streps’?
    What’s a furng strep?

  27. Dustin Wright on July 24, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Looks like a great way to make money for hobbies.

  28. Hwn on July 24, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    new subscriber, thanks man. just startin out woodworking this summer so i can spend more time with family need to pay bills! great tips

  29. Cecil McKeithan on July 24, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    Technically it’s better to build things that others like and not items you like. It easier not to cut into your profit margin when your not taking items for yourself.

  30. Robert Duley on July 24, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Love the trash bin hideaway , I used a slide out drawer from an office desk with uniformed cabinet door mounted to the front

  31. NOVAMAN 425 on July 24, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Love your projects,videos and your wood working skills..very impressive!!

  32. I made it worse on July 24, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    You sell on Etsy right?
    What’s your shops name?

  33. susan olson on July 24, 2022 at 11:29 pm


  34. Pa. Fish Preacher on July 24, 2022 at 11:29 pm

    Matthew Where do you get your reclaimed materials? Wood especially

  35. Justin nourse on July 24, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Do you have a how-to for that split dresser on the top right of the screen 🙏

  36. David Burdick on July 24, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    The more people making smalls the more money kept out of the big store made in china crap, keep rockin it and thanks

  37. Dave’s old man strength 42 on July 24, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Love the smells!

  38. Stuff_I_Liked on July 24, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    Awesome content Matthew. Quick question what dimension furring strips did you use for your shutters. 1 by or 2 by?

  39. vince jamison on July 24, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Your 💯 right, no one wants my style, make what sells!

  40. Andrew Stidham on July 24, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    How do you think they attached those 2×2 slices together for that key holder?

  41. Dennis Johnson on July 24, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    I have a question on shipping. How are people selling these projects on say Etsy, & shipping these products affordably? For example, I was going to ship a set of handlebars off my motorcycle. The box was roughly the size of the coffee cup sign in this video. Both UPS & USPS wanted $150 to ship due to the size more than the weight. One can’t sell a coffee cup hanger like this for $50 – $75 and expect the buyer to pay shipping of $100+.

  42. Brian Neukirch on July 24, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    I love that dresser in the background. Where can I get the plans?

  43. Charles Ball on July 24, 2022 at 11:41 pm

    So if we estimate $4.00 in materials for that heart x 8,500 = $34K. $10 to ship = 85,000, 8500 x 118 = $1,,003,000 – 85,000 – 34,000 = $884,000 . Who said these things can’t be profitable?

  44. PandawdyBob on July 24, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    tobacco sticks.. most people don’t know what they are. I used to make a lot of stuff from tobacco sticks when I was young. They were good for all teenage mutant ninja turtle weapons except for Raphael.

  45. Ziggy Ustar on July 24, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    I love the smalls/ I buy old mailboxes and turn them into bird houses making items going to trash sell for $35 I love smalls and all I have is a drill & stencils/ to start with

  46. The McGee Family on July 24, 2022 at 11:44 pm


  47. Andrew Burden on July 24, 2022 at 11:45 pm
