WWN Poll Pie Chart Are you budgeting for a better 2014 for your wood products business or one less stellar than 2013?

Woodworkers responding to a similar informal Woodworking Network poll last year were mainly favorable to capturing more sales in the coming year. In fact, 69% predicted sales growth, including 28% that were gearing up for sales of 10% or more.

What does your crystal ball tell you about the state of business on tap for your shop this year? Are you ready for bigger and better things or do you see market forces weighing down your business prospects next year?

Please take a moment to answer our poll question and feel free to back up your “vote” with a comment. After you have made your choice known, check out the most current poll results.
