Your video really made me want to give this a try making some custom wood items, but when I looked up the price of that Laguna IQ CNC next to you ($14,000) I'll have to wait a while on that.

What a load of BS

La Porta D says:

Lol reversing that isn't trying to charge more buddy. That isn't how this works. Reversing that would be asking yourself "What are products and services that my machine can use and fill for local and then national customers that I can attract w/ a website etc?" THAT is how that works.

Jessie Gomez says:

lol you weren’t the first person making docking stations 😂

That's great it was 2015, not 2022… bring it back, son. Today that shit doesn't work in fact every tom, dick, and harry has a CNC machine today, and it's over-saturated. I'm so tired of seeing these videos over and over again. The common denominator is "The Year"! Everyone who got on Etsy before 2019 killed it and most likely still are because there was barely any competition at that time so you owned the market. Today it's so hard to even make a buck because way too many people doing it. And what's even worse is even if you came out with an absolute killer product tomorrow it will be knocked off buy someone else and that's the saddest part about Etsy. Everything gets knocked off and you are out of business again!!
