How Woodshop Mike Gets Multiple Revenue Streams from his Business—Podcast

In this podcast episode, host Ethan Abramson sits down with Woodshop Mike, aka Mike Poorman, owner of the Georgia-based furniture company that shares his online handle, Woodshop Mike.

Meet Woodshop Mike at IWF 2022 in the Woodworking Influencers Lounge, sponsored by Shaper Tools at Booth A10620.

Poorman’s shop is located in Georgia, but his reach goes far beyond. He has set up his business not only as a custom furniture company, but as a business with multiple income streams, generated from the projects he’s building. Working this way, he ensures that even if client work is slow, he never has slow time in the shop.

Poorman is also an influential force among fellow professional woodworkers, with an online presence followed by tens of thousands on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. His step-by-step videos, projects plans, and custom-designed shop tools and aids are popular sellers.
