Location: Writing down the location of your business is very important. Locations with greater customer traffic usually cost more to buy or rent, but they require less spending for advertising to attract customers. This is especially true of retail businesses where traffic count and accessibility are critical.
Financial Projections : If you are planning on borrowing money then this is a very important section. If you are already in business and have a track record of earnings you can include that here. You can then extend out to the future based on your previous growth. The key to a successful business plan is to include all of the information that is pertinent but no extraneous information. It should be clear and to the point so that even someone who is not familiar with the woodworking industry can follow it.

Marketing Plan : This is where you include how you are going to get your customers. This is one of the most important parts of your woodworking business plan because without customers you don't have a business. For example if you are going to have a mail order side to the business you might include direct mail as a marketing method. If you are going to advertise in home and garden magazines this could be another marketing method. List these in bullet point form so they are easy to understand.
For an online business, a detailed and in depth business plan is usually not necessary unless you are trying to combine your online business with a traditional business. For most online business startups, the detail involved with planning a traditional business is not required. However, it would still be beneficial to you if most of the topics were still covered, even if only briefly. Having a written plan in front of you will help you to focus on important aspects of the business.
