Newbie question about starting a knifemaking business on the side

Hello,

I have played things straight my whole life, but was wondering if I can take advantage of an IMO a tax loophole. I don't want to be unethical, and I definitly don't want to break any laws but....

The plan is to buy some new knifemaking equipment with the goal of honing my skill to the point where I can sell my knives for at least enough money to keep my hobby self-funded (in a perfect world). Normally, I would buy the equipment, hone my skill to a commercial/professional level, and then take the plunge and open my side business (self-proprietor).
