I use my own name.  I think that customers for handbuilt furniture like knowing the person who designed and built it.   Using my own name emphasizes that personal involvement.

I liked Out Of The Woods, but it was taken.  Currently, my unofficial business is Flair Woodworks.  I have a free website which I can refer people to who want to see my work.  It's pretty informal.  www.flairwoodwork.spaces.live.com

I don't run a business, but my blog is Tom's Workbench.

I remember once seeing a van up in the DC area that had the following painted on the back:

"I work for a Jewish Carpenter...
Weintraub Cabinetry."

I'm on the verge of opening and if its not already taken my name will be "Etz Chaim Hea" Which in Hebrew means "Tree of Life" and of coarse it includes my name!

Howdy,


My business is called "Eitz Hadar Woodworks"...don't know if that's "too close" for ya'.  My name is Yitzy so "Chaim" in the business name doesn't do anything for me.  Good luck!  You can see some of my stuff at www.eitzhadar.com.

mine is my username. I desperately need to update it but since I only get 3 hits a months it's been on the back burner for awhile.

I got 78 views on my website yesterday because of this thread (as opposed to the usual zero I get on a daily basis). If I would update and market it I may have an opportunity with my site.

When it was operational it was "Creative Grain".  I still own the name but it is on personal leave for now.

I also use my own name. Being a one-man shop I think that says it all.

Custom Woodwerks by Jeff Heath


A bit long but still fits on the business card.


No website.  Haven't seen a need.  Other's I've talked to derive very little new business from their website, so I'm staying neanderthal, for now.  Keeping an open mind, though.

I was going to use Fine Woodworking, but someone beat me to it.

Like a number of others, I use my own name since I am a one-man shop.

Mine is called Marty's Custom Woodworking. and I've been running it for the past 2 years. I have a website and have found it to be very helpful in attracting business as well as providing a degree of automatic acceptance of a mark of professionalism by potential clients.

Alan,


 


I couldn't think of a good name, and I didn't want to use my name. When I revamped my site just recently I titled the pages "The Federal Period" (not very original or creative, but then I'm not very original or creative, that's why I make reproductions).

I'm getting ready to open up a shop and start a business, but have yet to decide on a name. I've been thinking of just using my last name and being

KALA

you know kind of like a brand. But haven't yet figured it out. But I do have a website and a blog. The website is going to be updated with professional pictures and a different lay out here in the next couple of weeks.

Great site. The Makintosh-inspired grill, built right! is really cool and you have a lot of very class work. The blackwood and walnut chair is excellent. If you ever get to Berlin I suggest going to both the Bauhaus museum and the Pergamon archeological museum to check out something like 8,000 years of good design, I know you'll dig it all.

Is that your little boy? He looks about the same age as mine (going on 4).

I don't have a woodworking business- much to the disappointment and surprise of pretty much everyone I wound up working as a musician and doing woodwork as a hobby rather than the other way around.

Actually I didn't touch a tool for a dozen years then recently got back into wood by accident, or fate. The "mojster" (like Meister, or master) doing our simple kitchen was so slow and sloppy that I said "errrr.... what the hell am I thinking?" and dove right into the kitchen and furniture. The first furniture piece I built was a bookshelf from the wood of an Ikea shipping mistake.

It seems that people are very impressed with wood-only joinery, which for me is not only the "right way", but a far sight easier becuase I truly hate glue-ups and find dovetails easier than buiscits and pocket screws (cut to a line, my grandfather cut dovetails "freestylee" for boxes and such for crying out loud) so maybe I'll try to sell some pieces, did so years ago. If that ever happens, I'll use the business name of "Morning Wood", hehe.

Anyway sorry for the diversion, nice work Kala!

Do you have a good last name?


By responding, I'm giving my website name. www.jmadson.com


Legaly I'm JMadson, Inc. When I say my company name, I'm JMadson, Custom Woodwork.


I feel, and have heard from others, that my name is strong, short and memorable.


madson.com was already taken, so I went with jmadson.com

I use "Donkey Works" - not a business, just wanted to see if grizzly would send a catalog with "Donkey Works" printed on the address...they did.
