Naming my business

Hello,
I am starting a shop with a friend, and we just can't find a great name for our woodworking shop. We want to sell cutting boards, knifes and tables in the beginning, but we will take in orders from people as we go.
My name is Bjarke Lorenzen and my friends name is Niels Walther, but we dont think that the name should include our names. We are both studying to be carpenters.
Do you guys have some ideas for a name?

Regards Bjarke

"Woodly Things" ... or "Woodly Possessions"

A play on "worldly things" or "worldly possessions".

Blockheads Cutting Boards

This would allow for some great graphics:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specfic. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo

* Woodcraft Specialties

* Handcrafted Wood Shop

* Modern Antiques

Just keep it short. I would not tell your customers that you are wanna be carpenters. Todays public does not associate fine woodworking and carpenters as one and the same.

My best recommendation.... When you find a name you like, see if you can get the liked name website domain. Anymore, the web presence is important, even if just for general info. Its not like the old days where you named yourself "AAA something" so you were first in the phone book.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Morning Wood sounds kind of catchy.

Woodworking does knot ever make me board.
