WHAT'S GOING IN OUR SHOP
Jeremy - Working on a coffee table with metal legs
Drew - Built in Storage Bench for a repeat client
Matt - Just reorganized the shop, always a cutting board on the bench in some state of completeness, just finished a whiskey cabinet and a lemonade stand.
Mark Stephenson - What is the jig you could not live with out or what jig surprised you that you use all the time?
John Graham - What is the best way to develop a price for commissions or project builds?
Mike Craft - What’s up guys!! Hope this finds all of you doing great and doing today what you love the most. I just got done listening to 118. Quick question regarding Facebook. My side business J&M Carving Creations has been doing pretty well this year....no complaining here. My question is spans across two platforms. I get it that #’s are the make or break within Instagram. You can’t just post pictures and expect to grow without solid #’s. This is understood. I am slowly but surely figuring this out which #’s to use. However Facebook is the butt kicker. You can have 1500 -2500 views and only 25 likes. Do you guys perceive this as a negative? Or as my wife says....sometimes people just don’t want to take the effort to move the thumb to the like button. What opinions do you guys have on this? It would seem to me that the way business has been going....and the comments from people who buy my work that there would be more likes. Any thoughts you have would be appreciated.
Drew - Diresta Ice Pick
I finally caught up on all of the podcasts a few weeks ago, so I wanted to say that it has been nice to see the podcast mature a bit. I really got into woodworking and welding about 2 years ago to make a TV stand for my wife. Since then I've been deployed (Army) and have a daughter, so that has fueled an even greater appreciation for making things. Thank you Jeremy for your service. I have greatly enjoyed the couple of Drew's videos that I have watched. Last but not least is Sam (the 2nd), who is great on her own, but definitely has a great family behind her. (Go gramps!)
Keep up the great work!
