In this episode, host Ethan Abramson sits down with Scott McKinnon, owner of the Oakville, Ontario-based furniture company Urban Reclaimed.
McKinnon has been in this industry for a while. Since the early 1990s he has been renovating homes, building furniture, being a TV personality, and basically taking part in every aspect of the furniture business.
Over the years, along with honing his craft, he has also honed the type of business he wants to run – moving from general contractor to custom furniture maker.
That switch inspired not only a different way to build furniture, but also a different way to operate his company
Follow along as we talk about the importance of saying no, the value of being on a TV show, pricing for things that don’t exist yet, and much more.
Every issue of IWF Network News, Building a Furniture Brand, host Ethan Abramson talks to your favorite furniture makers and woodworking professionals to give you a look at the business behind the furniture and cabinetry business.
You can meet Ethan Abramson and some of the woodworkers featured in his podcast at the IWF Woodworking Influencers Lounge (Booth A10620) sponsored by Shaper Tools, and located adjacent to the IWF Network News (Booth A10618).
