Thread: Looking to Expand

    Looking to Expand

    I mentioned in some of my other posts that I am looking into getting more space for my workshop, namely moving woodworking and leather working to a higher floor of the building where my workshop is located.

    Here is a quick shot of the space. Bigger room would be for woodworking and the smaller for leatherworking. I will keep metalworking and heat treatment in the basement.

    That's pretty sweet to have so much natural light.

    Yes, particularly for woodworking. In the basement I have no natural light.

    You are really getting serious with this. Doing it on the side - and slow as I am - I have a hard time breaking even with the overhead and shop rent, I hope it will work out for you with a larger space and expanding. I have a feeling that space so close to NY also isn't exactly cheap.

    It's hard for me to do woodworking in the basement, let alone leatherworking that I would like to get into. Leatherworking would require much cleaner environment, and more space.

    I have to take a risk of a larger overhead if I want to do things I want to do.

    The way I look at it, you are taking a big gamble.
    But, since you are betting on yourself, you get to be the one that determines how things will turn out.
    Good luck with everything and congratulations on the great shop space.

    With some planning and a great product,which you clearly have; this seems like a good investment more than a calculated risk. Usually very well rewarded.

    Not wishing you luck cause that seldom helps; the quality of your work seems fantastic and reviews speak for themselves, many business can only dream of that. Keep up the good work and I think this is a great direction for a business like yours
