We have been selling Basswood Carving Wood to artists and woodcarvers since 2007.
We are selling the business complete for the very modest price of $2,000
What we are selling:
This sale will include our inventory of cut and seasoned basswood blocks ready to ship. The inventory alone is worth the selling price. You will also get the web site and web name (domain) ownership transferred to you so you will actually own the complete web site and have rights to the graphics. This web site has been active and on the internet since 2007 so we are well connected to search engines and have many high quality links with other related carving and artist web sites.
Anyone that can acquire and process carving wood blocks. I believe this business would be good for a woodworker or craftsman to add to their current activities or to someone wanting to get started small with a turnkey system. It will help if you already have the basic tools for cutting the blocks to custom pieces. Table Saw, Chop Saw, Chain Saw would be normal tools needed.
If you are not a computer person, have no fear. There are web site hosting companies I can recommend that typically charge around $50 / year to keep the web site hosted. This amount can be less if you can manage the site yourself. So don't let the internet scare you I will help you get this transferred to a good host company.
How the business works:
You must find an source for the product. We typically collected logs from storms, neighbors, loggers. Once gather 5-10 logs we have a custom saw mill come right to our home and saw them up. We would have various thicknesses cut. This sawing typically cost less than $200. We stacked the cut material to dry for minimum of one year. After the wood is dried we cut into lengths that maximize the highest quality clear carving wood.
Orders typically come to us as a completed contact form that a customer filled out from the web site. This form gets e-mailed directly to you. We then either reply to the e-mail with a quote, answer questions, or call the customer to make recommendations. Sometimes the customers call us directly with questions. We have shipped orders all over the United States.
Possible ways to expand the business:
We often get asked about other wood species, so the addition of other carving woods would be helpful. You could also add carving tools and books to the site as well. I would continue to network with carving clubs and get a link on their web site. Attending carving events is also a big plus.
