#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

A good brainstorming session starts with the exploration of the words and the phrases that make the most sense for the respective industry. In the realm of woodworking, there are numerous terms that result in a positive association and some visualization on behalf of potential clients. This is why I used words like “crafty,” “fine,” “elegant and “royalty.”

The quality of the materials is something else that may draw clients to your business. This is why I believe “iron” and “mahogany” are good choices. These are expensive materials that result in the creation of solid, fine and long-lived items.

If you’re stuck on words to use, try our business name generator.

Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:

#2) Shortlist your ideas

Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.

Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:

  • Is the name simple and easy to remember?
  • Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
  • Is the name different from competitors?
  • Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
  • Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

My Shortlist:

Iron and Mahogany

Carpentry Royalty

Advanced Custom Woodworx

Heritage Custom Woodwork

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great woodworking business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With your customer feedback, you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Iron and Mahogany

This name sounds luxurious and expensive, it speaks of high quality products.

Carpentry Royalty

This name conveys a product that’s premium and very well made.

Advanced Custom Woodworx

This name conveys a modern brand that can provide their clients with contemporary solutions.

Heritage Custom Woodwork

This name conveys traditions and experience, two features that are so important for the creation of great woodwork products.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great woodworking business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Check Domain Availability

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful woodworking businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Englander Woodworking Logo

Englander Woodworking instantly conveys an image of royalty, tradition and ornate wooden elements. The name works because it relies on a mental image most people have of traditional English furniture and royalty. It results in certain quality expectations that are definitely good for the brand.

Zen Space Makers Logo

Zen Space Makers tells people what they can expect after the interaction with the company instead of focusing on woodworking itself. While the approach is a bit more abstract, it can deliver great results when the name is combined with the right brand elements like a logo and a slogan.

Lumber Boys Logo

Lumber Boys is a business that’s straight to the point and a bit more casual at the same time. This company knows its audience and the types of services these people are pursuing. The more casual and laid back approach results from this information and makes the title selection relevant.

5 Tips for naming your Woodworking business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

1. Do a Competitor Analysis

Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:

  • What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
  • Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
  • Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?

2. Focus on Naming Your Business Not Describing It.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused woodworking terms like building, remodeling and renovations. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a real woodworking business named Small Woodworking Studio.

Literally, this name conveys you’re contacting a small studio that dabbles in woodworking. On a deeper level, however, the name conveys the fact that the production is limited and the studio is kept small to pay attention to details rather than opt for mass-manufacturing.

3. How to Make a More Memorable Name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Furniture Fixes, At Work Woodwork)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Above and Beyond Carpentry – above and beyond would typically mean exceeding expectations but in the realm of carpentry, it could literally refer to top to bottom product creation)
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try Purchasing a Brandable Business Name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable woodworking business names could be:

  • Woodilia
  • Kreaton Woodwork
  • Naturim Carpentry

You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com

5. Avoid Combining Words Just to Create a Unique Name.

Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Artsy Woodworking and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like ArtWorking, ArtsyKing and Artes Woodworking.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
