Who hasn’t…people continue to find out about them everyday, and each day, all the members make money for performances they gave as much as 50 years ago. Imagine that, work you did when you were a young man still making you money today.
That’s one tested way to make a fortune – making once, and selling many. It’s what the Beatles did, it’s what J.K. Rowling did with the Harry Potter series, made something once, and sold it a gazillion times.
I hate to break it to you, but it’s a long shot to get rich by doing woodworking – or any other work in which you make one, sell one, make one, sell one…rinse and repeat. Their are few exceptions of course; famous artists can create a piece and sell it right away for a ton of money – but that’s a million to one.
So how do we extrapolate this to woodworking? Production.
