Hi Steve

I make small items like boxes and woodturning for the club's craft stall but took a portfolio of work along with me to craft fairs and from this I got commissions based on the fact people liked the stuff on the stall and would trust me to make other items for them.   I only make furniture to order as I can't store anything!  I also take payment for the timber before I start. Getting stuff published in the magazines also helped! Good luck.

Hi Andy

Thanks for the advise.

I am scouring the internet for upcoming woodcraft shows in and around south yorkshire if anyone knows of any I would be grateful to hear of them.
