I work at a nature center and each year they have some sort of auction of items made my local artisans or craftsman as a fundraiser. One year is was painted rain-barrels, the next was bird houses. etc. This year it is garden benches. You submit a design and if picked you build the thing and it gets auctioned off, and the proceeds help keep me employed. This year a frined of mine w/o access to a shop designed a nice garden bench and i offered to build it for the auction.
