You’re a “hobbyist” and don’t have the interest in building a business right now. I meet LOTS of woodworkers who take a similar approach. And at one point or another, almost ALL of them ended up turning to their skills to make extra money for vacations, savings, or emergency expenses.

When September rolled around, I ended up working as a kitchen designer and had a lot more downtime, so this was when I put a ton of work into the Etsy shop, learning about Etsy SEO, photographing everything, getting the color samples and the listings together and in pristine condition. I also had to sort out shipping costs and source packaging materials. Now that I’m working on a new website, I can only wish I had that sort of time and mental energy to put into it - I was pretty lucky. Much of the shop is still the same today because I did a really good job with it (at least I think!) Financially speaking, Etsy is a really great way to start a business because it’s essentially free until you start selling. It cost nothing to launch besides my 20 cent listing fees.
There’s a lot of space above the shelf in most closets. Even though it’s a little hard to reach, it’s a great place to store seldom-used items. Make use of this wasted space by adding a second shelf above the existing one. Buy enough closet shelving material to match the length of the existing shelf, plus enough for two end supports and middle supports over each bracket. Twelve-inch-wide shelving is available in various lengths and finishes at home centers and lumberyards.

The profit potential of a woodworking business depends on what products a business owner makes, where the products are sold and how skilled the business owner is. Some business owners only sell small products locally, and their revenue might be similar to the income supplied by a part-time job. Other business owners are master craftsmen and highly in demand. Their work might produce a comfortable salary, in some cases even breaking six figures.
