Storage isn't just needed for keeping your products safe and neatly packed away, the Inland Revenue requires you keep all your company records for a number of years in the event they want to examine them. This means you have to find space for them in an effective organized manner.

It might not seem something you need to give high priority too, however it is a practical issue that does need to be addressed.
Many wood workers back then,as now, understood the importance of quality workmanship, which does include the use of the best wood available.

Walnut, Cherry and Oak were the prime choices along with an Eastern Pine which was also a hardwood type. Along the Eastern Seaboard, some wood artisans also used hardwoods imported from South America know for their beautiful 'inner glow' quality finish such as Mahogany.
