welcome to Johny Eh's woodshop my name is
Johny and I'll teach you five different woodworking projects that actually sell and
how to continue selling them. There are some tips near the end of the video so you don't
want to miss out on that. Let's get started. Project number, one coat racks. These are
really easy to make easy to sell also now this picture here all I needed for material was
a 1×10 2×2 paint stain hooks and that's it. Now to hit more potential clients, what you can do is
offer different stains and different paint colors. Let's move on. Project number two. These are
entry benches. I love making these. There's two different styles I make the one with the
x legs and then one with the shelf underneath. I actually like making the one with the
shelf underneath a lot. It's really simple all you need is two by fours and pocket holes
nothing else. The other one is a little bit more difficult to make but it's still fun
making also what you got to do is offer more what's the word I can't remember more styles.
the word there we go. More styles you have of different projects the more clientele you can hit.
Alright moving on. Project number three. Alright so these are entryway tables check out this half
moon table I made from one of my clients. She absolutely loved it you can make different
tables it doesn't have to be a half moon you can do rectangular tables square tables.
Entry way tables roughly are a little bit taller they go from 30 inches in height 36 inches
in height. This half moon table is actually 36 inches in height turned out really nice
and it actually fit perfectly in the area. Moving on. Project number four. Coffee tables.
These do take a little bit longer to make but they're actually really fun to build.
I'm gonna leave a link in the description down below for the farmhouse coffee table I made. It
shows a step-by-step process of how to make it, turned out really nice and it's
really really easy to build trust me and you're gonna have fun with it. Alright let's
move on to number five and the last project, dog leash holders slash key holders. alright check
this key holder out I made for a client of mine. It's really simple to make one piece of wood
stain hooks you're done for the dog leash holders. Trust me guys they will sell and in the last year
alone there have been an increasing number of dog owners. I will be making a dog leash holder in
the future videos and I'll be posting that video later on. Alright guys so for the tips now.
Now when you're posting different styles of coffee tables or benches or whatever it is,
please do not make them all in one post okay. You're gonna get people like me when I go browsing
online and I see a coffee table for sale but that first picture is not my style I'm gonna skip it
next, but let's say when I actually do click it and you go over to many of different pictures
There might be a coffee table I like in there but I'm not gonna waste my time and click
on that because I only see the first picture. If I'm not interested, I'm not interested, it's
that simple. Make different posts for different styles. Alright you're going to hit majority
of different people when you're doing this, when you're only doing one post for different
styles of coffee tables let's say the first picture is a farmhouse style now let's say
one-fifth of people are farmhouse people like they like the farmhouse style look. Only
one-fifth of those people are gonna click that photo. The other four they're not gonna touch it.
They like the modern look, they like rustic look, they look different styles they will just skip
it. If you have multiple different posts for those benches or coffee tables the different
styles people will click your projects. Alright that's one tip.
Alright guys I want
to share an experience with you that I had recently. Uh reason why I want to share this is
it actually gives you an understanding of how I post my products so I did some research found
out that my area was big for entryway benches. Went on pinterest found out different styles found
one I loved. Here's a picture of it that I made built it with an extra lumber I had and I sold
it within a day.
What I did on top of that was I posted a custom-made order, so what people
would do is message me with the dimensions they wanted pick the color they wanted the stains
they wanted. Also okay now this gives people customization of how they want it to look right
uh I had a lady message me saying that she wanted that exact same bench 36 inches wide but she
sent me a picture of a coat rack she wanted to match that bench and she wanted the coat rack 32
inches. I built both of it both of them sold it to her. What I did on top of that was I had left that
post for the bench created a separate post for the coat rack created a third post for a combo the
coat rack and the bench. Now here's a screenshot of the first seven days I posted that uh combo I
got less than 700 views all right that's huge in seven days just under 700 views that's massive.
That's the reason why I have to show you this, the more you post the more views you get
the more potential clients you get alright. Alright so guys I'm going to teach you how to find
out what sells around your area.
So each area each region has different things that are popular
okay. So what you're gonna do is you're gonna go on facebook, kijiji, etsy, whatever platform
you wanna sell your products on I use facebook and kijiji. uh what you're gonna do is type in
two different things, you're gonna type in custom made or you're going to type in wood furniture
alright. You're going to see lists of different items that actually sell in that area, it could
be floating shelves or towel ladder holders. Different things planter boxes right, actually
it is a season for planter boxes so that would probably sell really well right now. uh
what you're gonna do is you're gonna then go on pinterest try to find different styles
that you've seen that are posted. Something different, but that's nice, something that you're
comfortable making alright, then try selling that. If you have scrap wood, build it try posting it
then make custom made order uh post up to you. You'll figure it out really simple okay that's
tip number two.
Alright guys the last tip I'm going to teach you is staging, you have to
stage your products that you want to sell. Alright I have some pictures that I've tried
selling that weren't staged, some products, they didn't sell. Okay some of them did because
they were actually just really nice as they looked and people really wanted it, but if it's
something that's a little bit more pricey and if you don't show them how it functions
with the staging part and how it looks with the area it's in, then people can just can't picture
it and they might not want it. But if you stage it properly and you take pictures of it people
glancing at it might be like oh that that just catches their eye and it might work similar
to their area and they're like you know what I really need it I'm gonna buy it alright, so
it just potentially grows your clientele right so that's the last stage.
Alright guys and
lastly I want to give a shout out to Matt Outlaw and his wife Amy, they're at 731 woodworks,
their YouTube channel is linked in the description down below. Alright check him out send him some
love. The reason why I want to give a shout out to him is he actually encouraged me to make my
own YouTube channel I've been watching for the last few years and he's a really cool guy. He's
bald just like me so he's in my good books all right. Also, he's retired from his job and he's
doing woodworking full-time so this is his pure career right now so help him out up there. Guys
