ebook written by Jeff Ballentyne Owner of Lots of Woods
This is a good resource for those thinking about starting a carving business and making woodenware for a living. I cover several aspects of what Jeff has written about in my spoon making courses with many of the details covered in my intermediate and advanced wood carving classes. This ebook will give you a solid foundation to work from.
This informative and well thought-out ebook on the business of carving wooden spoons has lots of practical ideas that if followed can really help the aspiring and experienced wood carvers alike. His business advice is solid and speaks to his experience. This short, easy to read ebook should be in every wooden spoon carver’s library. There are a lot of helpful business tips on what works in selling that age old kitchen utensil. The cost of the ebook is well worth the money in my opinion. I “wood” recommend it to anyone looking to start a business in woodworking and to the spoon carver looking for reliable business tips.
Jeff writes, "This 30 page ebook will teach you everything you need to know to get your carvings sold. I take an easily worded approach to helping you launch your business where the sky is the limit really. The ebook is from a spoon carvers standpoint and is easily relateable if you carve something else, or turn bowls for example. I include some of my favorite types of wood that look very attractive for carving and help sell your stuff, also included are many ideas on diversifying your business."
