Apprentice Joiner From Scotland :)

Hi im a 19 year old Apprentice Joiner from Scotland and currently in my 3rd year of my 4 year Appreniceship.
Ive became really confident in my work in hingeing and hanging doors and would like to now start doing some Homers but dont know where to start in getting heard by anyone and make a name for myself, what should my first step be in getting a little bit more income by hanging doors for other people?


Thanks,

Michael from Bonnie Scotland

Hi Mike, welcome! I'd post some flyers up at home centers and hardware stores offering my services for a start.

Your question is actually harder to answer because your in Scotland and most of us or in United States. We don't have knowledge of your society and laws. If this was a woodworking question it would be easier to answer.

I would think you would have to tell the tax man and you may have to get a license. As I said we are not knowledgeable about your country so it's just an assumption.

Well it's a world wide web forum we have members from all over, just most come from the states. Woodworking questions are just much easier to answer.
