Should not be an issue at all. They may ask for some type of verification in the form of tax papers or even notarized statements from friends that can vouch for the fact you were working for yourself.

No tax papers it was custom work for cash and art shows the main reason I was doing that is I was tacking care of my father in law did the home health and hospice I could take care of him and stay busy been thinking about driving for awhile and doing research and can't wait to get started

Christopher, I've actually done the same thing with woodworking for cash so I can relate. I didn't have any tax papers for it either, it was just work on the side.

You need to get a long list of people that can verify your custom woodworking self employment. Try to contact previous customers. I know that when I did work I wrote down all my customers' information and I had records of them on my email. So try to talk to them and see if they are willing to help you out. But you need to gather a long list of people that can verify your self employment and apply to every single company out there.

By the way, here's some of my work. Woodworking is definitely one of my passions that I will continue when I retire! These planter boxes were made out of redwood and I also cemented the interior to make it last forever. I sold them for a very nice profit! Don't mean to hijack your thread boss, but always nice to see a woodworker.
