  • Funding Usage

    The financial assistance we are seeking is primarily for the acquisition of costly equipment, along with necessary shop modifications. First and foremost, it is imperative that we construct a wall within our shop space to create a clear separation from the remaining area that we will not be utilizing. Additionally, implementing climate control measures in the environment is essential. This will ensure that our furniture pieces can properly acclimate to a customer's home, preventing any potential temperature variations that may occur when they are introduced to a new environment. Moreover, we require the purchase of four machines that will significantly enhance our production capabilities and simultaneously improve the quality of our products. Lastly, a portion of the funds will be allocated towards building a stock of materials. This strategic move will enhance our self-sustainability by reducing our reliance on suppliers and enabling us to have readily available resources.

Through this comprehensive marketing plan, we are confident that we will not only attract customers but also close deals by showcasing our unique strengths and commitment to delivering outstanding results. Our primary goal is to ensure a consistent and reliable flow of projects in the pipeline. Job security is paramount for any small business, and we are no exception. With a steadfast stream of future projects, we can rest assured that our business will thrive. To achieve this, we will place a strong emphasis on lead generation and effective marketing strategies to attract potential customers. We are Tycer Woodworking. We are a small, custom furniture shop dedicated to creating unique, home-specific pieces of furniture that elevate a house from a cookie-cutter template to a one-of-a-kind home that encourages admiration. With years of experience in the construction field, working in homes at the final stages of closing, we have vast knowledge of how typical houses appear. This positions us to have an advantage when taking steps to create a unique home. This, combined with our design style and elegant execution, allow us to provide home furnishings that are truly custom and unique. In today's world, it's disheartening to see that most homes are filled with mass-produced furniture from big-box stores. As a result, the uniqueness and character that once defined our living spaces have been lost. That's why, when searching for a new home, many people long for the charm and craftsmanship found in older houses. These homes were built with care and attention to detail, radiating a sense of authenticity that is hard to come by nowadays. Unfortunately, the cookie-cutter designs of today's furniture industry have made our homes feel generic and lacking in individuality, catering to the masses rather than celebrating each customer's unique taste. At Tycer Woodworking, we pride ourselves on creating custom furniture pieces that embody the timeless charm that is so often missing from mass-produced items. Our goal is not only to create statement pieces that capture attention, but to do so in a way that enhances the beauty of a living space without overwhelming it. When you choose Tycer Woodworking, you are choosing to bring your living space to life. Unlike store-bought items that lack character, each piece we craft has one-of-a-kind charm. We take the time to not only consider the design and style, but also the specific environment in which the furniture will reside. This allows us to create pieces that seamlessly blend with your existing decor, enhancing the overall aesthetic and creating a truly personalized space. Our dedication to creating unique, handcrafted furniture sets us apart from the competition. With our attention to detail and commitment to quality, we are able to infuse each piece with a level of charm and craftsmanship that simply cannot be replicated by mass-production. When you choose Tycer Woodworking, you are choosing to invest in furniture that is as unique as you are.

  • Self Identified Competition

    There are three main competitors in our business area. Our primary competitor is GoodWood, a company that specializes in manufacturing commercial furniture for restaurants, cafes, and other businesses. They primarily focus on larger projects and do not commonly engage in residential projects. The second competitor is Disco Warehouse Furniture, which creates custom furniture using a combination of wood and custom metal fabrications. They also incorporate recycled and reclaimed materials into their pieces, with a primary design element made of steel. Another competitor in the market is Odd Grain Custom Woodwork, which incorporates reclaimed materials in the construction of their furniture. Although their creations appear to be skillfully crafted, they possess a certain rustic charm attributed to the use of more affordable materials. None of these businesses offer the same services as Tycer Woodworking. We specialize in crafting high-quality hardwood furniture using only wood and glue, highlighting the natural beauty of the materials. We do not utilize reclaimed materials. Our expertise lies in creating heirloom-quality furniture pieces from raw, unused boards that are designed to enhance homes and elevate their surroundings. One of the standout advantages of choosing Tycer Woodworking over our competitors is our unwavering commitment to our customers. Unlike larger establishments, we are a small shop that focuses on one project at a time, guaranteeing that our clients receive our undivided attention. This level of dedication and care is crucial when it comes to crafting heirloom quality furniture that stands the test of time. Furthermore, our specialization in creating bespoke spaces sets us apart from the competition. We understand that each client desires a home that reflects their unique personality and style. With our expert craftsmanship and attention to detail, we bring their vision to life. Unlike our competitors who rely on robotics and CNC machining, we pride ourselves on the traditional art of woodworking. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted, ensuring a perfect fit and unparalleled quality that cannot be replicated by anything other than a mallet and a chisel.
