Once you become part of our network you will begin to receive build requests. After you accept an order, you have 3-6 weeks to build it. We then arrange shipment to the customer. You get paid when the order is complete.

How much will I earn?
The majority of the sale price goes to you! All of our pieces are priced with the woodworker’s time in mind. We estimate that you can earn between $30 – $70 depending on how long it takes for you to complete the project.
How many hours per week do I need to commit?
There is no set time commitment. We recommend planning to spend a minimum of 20 hours/week after you accept a project. You can accept new projects when you’re available, decline a request or pause your account when you don’t want to take on new projects.
Do I need to have my own tools and shop?
Yep. You bring the tools and shop space, we bring the orders and customer service.
How much does it cost to sign up?
Nothing, it’s free to become part of our network! We ask that you fill out a survey and follow up with an interview.
What will I be building?
You will be building furniture from our catalog. We send you the plans and you build the piece according to the specifications. Our modern furniture has smart simple designs and quality joinery…
If you are interested in building your own furniture, you might consider becoming one of our designers. You can submit designs for review. If we approve them for our catalog, you can earn royalties every time a woodworker in our network builds your design.
