hello to all lumberjocks i am writting this bilog because i,m hoping to reach out to some of you fellow lumberjocks and get some advice that can help me be secessfull at selling my work. i have been woodworking for over ten years and have made several great projects that i have tried to sell with no success i tried to sell my red palm bookcase for 250.00 no success i tried to sell me cedar chest for 350.00 no success and now i,m trying to sell my quartersawn red oak tv stand for 125.00 no success yet any ideas that could help? anything anyone can suggest?
1st let me answer a question i know i,m going to get asked i,m not looking to sell my work full time as a living i know you can not survive in these times today trying to sell your work full time with this economy.i am disabled and on a limited income and i am just trying to sell my work to get some extra money every month and to get my 1st commission sale i,m not trying to get rich . the only paying project i had so far was the stairs i did for my aunt and uncle they paid me 250,00 those steps were made out of full 2in by 6in larch lumber with hand made railing caps and spindles. any advice that any of you lumber jocks could give me thar might lead to a sale and repeat customers would be great, ps if anyone would like to buy my tv stand let me know i will consider shipping it to those seriously interested thanks eric
