Step 3: Google Forms

When you’re all done setting up your Facebook page, let Brittany know and we will get your Google Forms all set up and send you a tutorial video on how to use them.  These make signing up to events easy for guests.
For this we will need a gmail account and password.  You can change your password to ootwteam so we can have access to your email.  When we are finished we will let you know and you can change it back.

Learning About Your New Business

Facebook Units

 

We have created a section on our Facebook Page for you to learn everything to do with your new business.  It’s in the *Units* section on our Out of the Woods Distributor Page.

 

There you will find answers to the most frequently asked questions.

 

Have a read through but if you still have questions after, don’t be afraid to reach out!

Wood

Most home improvement stores will cut an order for you.  They are experts and can walk you through any questions you may have.

 

We try to work with 2 sizes of wood: 1×12 finished pine and 1×6 finished pine.

 

Finished lumber means its been put through a planer.

 

After bring put through a planer

– 1×12 becomes .75 x 11.25

– 1×6 becomes .75 x 5.5

 

You will use 1×12 for sizes 12×12, 12×16, 12×20 and 12×24

You will use 1×6 for our 6×32 size

 

Shop around.  Ask on Buy and Sell sites for lumber store reccommendations.  Call these lumber stored and discuss contractor discounts, bulk buying discounts, etc.

Training Videos

 

This training video is a little outdated.  We’ve changed a few things but it’s more detailed than the others we have.
