Ok, so I am thinking about opening a little business on the side of working my full time job, doing it home based, no employees working for me. It would be only me so there would be no liability factor for anyone working for me. I would like to build and sell home furnishings out of wood, simple things like bed frames/sets, night stands, coffee tables, end tables, entertainment stands, etc. I know that I would have to submit an application for a business license, but is there anything else I would have to do or obtain? There won't be any hazardous materials, chemicals, nothing like that involved (with the exception of wood stain or paint only about a quart at a time). I know for liability reasons and to cover my own a** i would need to get insurance, but is there anything else that I am missing? Looking for anyone that is knowledgeable about this stuff to help me out a bit before I go to the county building and make myself look like a fool. I live in Tooele City if that makes any difference. Any and all help is appreciated!!

Why would you look like a *fool* for asking legitimate questions ?
Better to ask and be fully legal then doing it haphazardly, no ?
When you go for your *business license*, ask them ?
