Brendan from Homeline Furniture was started by his father by creating a bricks and mortar store in 1991 in County Tipperary, Ireland and evolving into the world of eCommerce multi selling covering your house needs from top to bottom.
If you've got some tools laying around, and permission to use them (supervised or otherwise), the go for it. Try not to cut off your arm with a buzz saw, but I don't doubt that a 15 or 16 year old can figure out how to use a hammer, nails, some sandpaper, and a can of paint to slam together some funky furniture pieces.
The finish is very important: while the craftsmanship put into the hidden construction renders the piece strong and functional, it is the finish that is visible. All wood is sanded to a very smooth finish and then, if the wood is to be stained to a specific shade, a preselected stain is applied by hand. Stains should be applied in thin coats, with a fine sanding between coats, until the final depth of shade required is attained.
The big disadvantage with online selling, even though Ireland is a small country, it is nowhere as big as the UK. It is a long trip from where we are in Tipperary up to the top of Donegal so if you are delivering a table and 6 chairs and everything is perfect and they are taking the last chair out of the box and there is a mark on the corner, that chair needs to be replaces. That chair would be too heavy for a courier so we would have to send our own lads back up. It is all expense, that is the disadvantage with furniture it can be damaged in the box.
