- Then, arrange a small working space, some technicians and some hand tools
- After that, start to manufacture some home furniture in small scale and display them on your own showrooms and others’ showrooms for feedback
- If the feedback from market is good enough, try to make a master plan to make your furniture manufacturing business larger.
