In conjunction with Woodworking Network, the CMA conducts an annual survey designed to establish benchmarks on a wide range of subjects relevant to small shop owners. For example, the survey explores business outlook, staffing and compensation, shop rates, CNC automation, construction methods, and marketing. On the demographic side, the survey paints a portrait of where shops are located, how many employees they have, how big the shops are, and what kind of work they do.
