My first video promoting my esty store. It promotes the step stools I make. Please subscribe to the channel, as any of you who sell know…... it’s been a tough season.

Great video Bob and best wishes to you. This is at once minor and critical: you have the “t” and “s” inverted in your link. It should be “etsy”.

Lenny, I’m glad I saved the file, now I get to remake the video. I’m going to have to hire you as an editor!!!!
I always screw up that e before i thing also….:)

Mike, that version is by Yusuf Islam aka Cat Stevens.

As it says in Larry’s signature phrase, I drank twice and didn’t cut the misspell….:(

Thanks David, you could use a 30 step step stool for all that roof work you do, which

would you prefer Cherry wood, or oak?????

Great stools of quality. I have purchased quite a few items through ETSY. “Free Shipping” will get some second looks. Nice web site…............

Hey Joe, were both big time movie producers now, thanks I appreciate the support.

Thanks Chris!!!

Vonhagen, I love the quarter sawn Oak also. The last picture of the walnut step stool I
under priced and regret it. That was some real beautiful wood. I have been thinking
about a mortise machine. The problem is my basement shop is so small. Last week I
spent the whole weekend cleaning and making more space. If I buy another machine
I’ll have to spend another weekend making space!!!

Thanks, rodger and Shop Smith. I just made another video on how I build the book cases so hopefully
people will take a look at the link and see how much work it takes to build these items. I regularly, get offers from customers asking for the price to be cut in half. I guess everyone is just trying to get the best price they
can, but it really hurts just taking 10% off an item.

Bob,

Selling stuff at the right price is always difficult. Matching supply and demand : many books have been written about this topic. Keep listering to your clients and try to furfill their demands for the right price.

Just my idea
