Design, build and sell your custom product with no inventory!

OK, this is  cool. Ponoko is a company that allows you to custom design and sell jewelry, toys, furniture…anything you can laser cut out of Plywood, MDF, Hardboard, Acrylic etc.  right from their website. You keep no inventory. You design and build a couple prototypes to make sure your design is easy to build and works, then Ponoko will build and fulfill orders for you on demand. You can be a furniture design company with your own line for sale on their site or build your own and link your shopping cart to their site for fulfillment. Fire up Illustrator and get busy.
