Please be very careful about any home assembly/craft jobs. Unfortunately, they are almost all scams.

Ive done a lot of research on most of these companies.


First go to www.badbusinessbureau.com and search for the company names. It will tell you a lot.


What I'm pretty sure are scams: Tiny Details, Big Horn Wood Products, and creative wood works you need wood working abilities.


Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, most of them are! I know. Sad, isn't it? However, there are very small that are honest, but sometimes it is impossible to pass their inspection on finished products, even thought they look perfect and great.

How is it a scam if you're working with wood and you need woodworking abilities?[img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img] I would never try a craft if I didn't have the ability to do it.



And I do know someone who passed inspection with Tiny Details and was
enjoying working with them, she just decided it wasn't for her.
She stopped posting here a long time ago, though, because of all the
bashing that happened. [img]smileys/smiley18.gif[/img]



No, I've never tried any of these companies, just playing a bit of Devil's Advocate today...[img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

There are a lot of scams but that doesn't mean everything is though.


New England Crafters http://www.magicalgift.com/ is a good company lot of different projects to pick from. I have heard a lot of people have gotten paid from them. I tried them but I'm not very good at the small crafts nor did I have the time or patience for it. But I still recommend them. They have great customer service.

I just signed up with NEC and got my starter kit yesterday. It really looks VERY easy (I opted to start with one of their "easy" projects) and much bigger than I thought it would be. I'll keep you posted if it's easy to pass inspection or not with this project.


I like that they have a forum there too. If people weren't getting paid I wouldn't think they'd have a forum where it can be a topic, ya know? But that's just my thoughts. I was referred there from someone here who knows of someone that's been paid so I think they are legit.


I also just signed up with Disciples Cross and although I hear it's HARD to pass inspection, you have the option to sell them on your own for much more than the company would pay you for them. That's the route I'm going. [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

The projects are harder then they look but they got good customer support. I'm just not very good with little crafts so I didn't do well. But I sitll think they are legit.


I have thought about doing DC. I would sell them on my own though. I'm from a town with a lot of churches so I was thinking of trying to sell them at the flea markets we have over to the summer. I'm just not sure how are they are to make.
