The Custom Furniture Business: Creating Beautiful and Timeless Designs
Small businesses are the soul of America

More people are interested in buying locally made products than ever before. You can capitalize on many consumers’ return to local shopping by emphasizing that all components of your furniture are made in the United States, or in your town or area. The same applies to handmade goods. Individuals who are tired of mass-produced goods are often the same people who are interested in buying locally. Given this climate, it is a good time to start a handmade furniture business.

Planned robot science museum will be built by robots, obviously

Seoul’s upcoming Robot Science Museum practices what it preaches

Well, isn’t this meta: Seoul’s planned Robot Science Museum is going to be built by a fleet of robots. In a perfect example of life imitating art (or in this case, life imitating science exhibitions), robots will design, fabricate, and construct many of the museum’s components.

Turkish architecture studio Melike Altinisik Architects devised the master plan for the building, which will be the world’s first museum dedicated to robotic science. Renderings show a cream, egg-shaped building with softly rounded edges and a glassy base.

According to MAA’s principal, Melike Altinisik, robots will touch the project from start to finish, beginning with drones used to site map the land and perform inspections. Another set of robots will shape and assemble the facade’s metal plates, while more robots 3D print concrete parts.

When the museum opens at its projected date of 2022, the building will stand as a showcase of its purpose. “In other words, the Robot Science Museum will start its first exhibition with its own construction by robots on site,” Altinisik says.

That in itself isn’t a new concept. Robots have constructed both experimental pavilions and practical structures in recent years. Seoul’s robot museum lives somewhere between the two as an ambitious experiment to see how far we can push autonomous building.

Give your business a name. Name your business something that indicates what you sell. This will come in handy later on, when you are marketing your business and want people to associate your business name with handmade furniture.
File a DBA, which stands for “doing business as,” at your local county clerk’s office. You may want to do a search to ensure that no other business in your town is operating under the same name. If you live in a large metropolitan area, a search is a necessity.
Create a line of furniture. You’ll need to have models of each piece of furniture that you intend to sell, so that customers can easily visualize what you have to offer. Add to your furniture line each year so that your stock stays fresh and on-trend.
