Building Farm Tables and other related tables and furniture items is a method to make money that can turn into a profitable business.
For me, it all started as a hobby, or as a ‘Honey, Can You Build This?’ for me. My wife, the obvious ‘Honey Do initiator’, asked me sometime back to refinish a few furniture items she wanted to sell at a consignment store nearby our home. The list of items seemed to expand almost weekly from a chair, to a night stand, to a small table, to my largest refinishing item ever, a large 2-piece antique buffet / sideboard with beveled mirror all in dark red mahogany. Wow, that was a job and a half!; however, it turned out to be beautiful, if I do say so, and it sold for the highest price of any item my wife ever sold.
Then, I got a… “Honey, can you build me a Country-style Farm Table for our home?”
After several requests, I finally succumbed to her requests and did build a table; one completely from scratch…which we enjoyed for a couple of years with friends and neighbors.
Some time later, our next door neighbors moved into town and opened a new business, Encore Resales Consignment & Thrift Market. Needless to say, our close friends had anticipated that my wife would help out at their new store. She did, ..and guess what was one of the 1st items she consigned at the store? Yep!, you guessed it, the hand-crafted farm table from our dining room.
After that, the rest is history. We now have Just Fine Tables.
