There is a growing demand for furniture and carpentry services because more and more people work from home, they will need to furnish their spare space in their unit of residence to be a more cosy area that is suitable and fit to the concept of “home office”. Of course, there must already be entrepreneurs or freelancers who also include gig workers that work as ad-hoc home-based self-employed executives, who have been carrying on their daily operational activities and duties in their home. After the COVID-19 pandemic began in the year of 2019 (precisely, estimated started from the end of that year), more and more companies require their team force to work from home to safeguard their colleagues as well as complying with the local government’s implementation throughout many anti-disease spreading acts, legally and also from the aspect of humanity (health concern to safety issue to break the chains). In addition to that, e-commerce booms as more people cannot visit the physical locked down store, mall or other types of shopping places for their basic needs and want, making items of e-business sellers needing more customized racking, storage, shelves and more order processing woodworking to exist.
A lot of people might choose to DIY (Do-It-Yourself) but not all can be done through homemade, from raw materials specification, choosing the right combination of components, cutting, polishing, assembling as well as other surfaces treatment such as anti-termite and waterproofing coating. Unnecessary costs will incur when you have the wrong chosen sets to be fabricated, installed or even the welding of certain parts will require purchases of extra tools that could be just “one-time use”, making it seems wiser to just purchase from other specialized vendors who got ready products (although the drawbacks are sizes might not be suitable to what you want), or some carpenters who can do a customization just for your consumption. Furniture supplying is not as simple as other hardware products, especially for the use of commercial users who prefer to make-to-order. However, there are challenges in the lockdown, which is the global supply chain effects that indeed happen in almost every world crisis since we have an interlinked globalization type of specialization model (production of even some bolts and nuts are from an overseas nation that is more cost-competitive that makes more sense to carry on mass manufacturing).
Mitigation of risk exposure can still be carried out by suppliers, through proper planning and stockpiling to meet the scheduled demands or match the planned delivery schedules by upstream players of their raw materials. For woodworking carpenters, they need to rely on the weather, logs vendors or sawn mills up to the plywood or melamine sheet midstream players to support their role-playing in the whole sector (i.e. to serve the end user’s demand). Many countries facing the similar issue, untallied lockdown of upper stream in the supply chain compared to the lower end of the industry. For instance, it might also be occurring that the furniture showroom or furniture contractor who can do order-to-produce kind of custom works are not able to operate but yet the production of their suppliers can, making it having the lesser initiative to operate as it might increase the fixed and variable overheads if they do so as there will be no buyers for their products. Plan well, do more visionary programs within the industry to coordinate, using digitization tools to internalize own operational activities to externalize the communication to reach your customers, suppliers and industries’ stakeholders are essential.
