On this episode, host Ethan Abramson sits down with Mike Coffey, owner of the
Northern California based furniture company Coffey Custom Builds.
Now Mike is somewhat of an outlier in the furniture business. He got into it because, hold for dramatic pause, he actually likes the business side of the industry.
So many times we hear about people who love to make the furniture and then have to learn the business side once they get going but Mike is the opposite. Yes he loves the woodworking side as you will hear, but he is someone who had their business plan in place and then started to learn the furniture trade as a secondary step.
Follow along as I talk with Mike about what attracted him to the business side of furniture making, his views on customer service and project organization, when to buy new tools, and much more.
