For me I pull up three website pages, Ebay, Amazon and I would conclude 80%> are Chinese imports, and to the ignorant in society, price is king and quality (home grown) becomes lower in the decision rankings. I would add that many (UK based Companies) are actually Chinese based with a sat alight outlet in our country, which leads itself to being import and tax free!

Once it’s discovered that these woodworking products are popular, then start setting up the business plan.  Many cities require licenses or permits in order to operate a business out of the home, so call the local business development office to determine if the area is zoned for a home business.  Then if the state charges sales tax, then get a sales tax certificate allowing the collection of taxes on the products, and set up an account with the state to remit the taxes collected.

Your first step is to find out if you need a business license. If you plan on operating a home-based business and live within city limits the best place to check is with your city business license office. Otherwise, check with your county business license office. If you need to get a business license, you also need to check for zoning issues. You will not be able to get a business license if your business address is not zoned for the type of business you want to run.
