I'm sitting this year, partly because it does not pay. I also have health and family problems that keep me out of the store.

You have to choose the wood and options with which you are comfortable instead of starting big. If you have made your choice of wood eg. Rubber or mahogany wood, you will have to deal with those who can provide you with a regular supply of wood. Suppliers who supply raw materials must be reliable and trustworthy because you can not afford to turn down customers because of the scarcity of lumber.
In addition, tips, advice and special offers from Fine Woodworking.

Contact the appropriate government security agencies for additional assistance.
