: There are many people out there who can finish the project, but don't have the tools or adequate manual skills to make the basic box. I think I'm a typical example. I've got a router and dovetail jig, but no table saw. I have a really hard time cutting 4 boards of the precise length with a circular saw, even with a fence. And I don't have an inside "dirty" room where I can deal with all the sawdust, which means I am limited to the summer months when I can do this outside. I think I'd gladly pay $40-$60 for four finger jointed boards (depending on size -- head vs. combo) that were ready to knock together. I keep thinking, I'm not the only one.
Right again. I started out thinking I would be doing great if I sold 10 or 20 chassis a month. There is a big demand for chassis and cabs from homebuilders as well as small commercial customers. Heck, you have guys over at the wreck forums buying hardwood drawer flat packs and converting them into cabs. A finish it yourself flat pack is a good idea for a viable business. Find a nitch with little competition and provide a good product at a reasonable price and you can't help but succeed.
