I saw a post on my other favorite website besides Lumberjocks today called Regretsy, and was pretty surprised at one of the listings today. A seller on Etsy an item listed that I think most of us would find difficult to get rid of, let alone sell or make $20 plus $8 S&H.

Still, who knows – perhaps these things are selling like hot cakes and there’s money to be made. I would imagine it would easiest to sell in a mason jar, or preferably pictured on aged barnwood! Reduce, reuse, recycle, right?

I’m going to be rich!!!! . I’m going to package it in 100 lb boxes. I have at least $1000 worth of it laying in my workshop right now.

i just gather a little in a can with an air tight lid (coffee)
and put about a cup of ‘odorless mineral spirits’ in it
and a couple of teaspoons of it in the wood stove
and start my fires with it

i haven’t used any kindling or paper in years
and don’t have to wait for the little coals
of kindling to be ready for the logs

the rest goes outside from the vacuum
to hopefully be mulch someday
but i do have the wide open country to do it in
and no neighbors to complain about the dust

could we all be rich if this takes off
if this guy doesn’t patent the idea (lol)

I wouldn’t view it as much of a money maker. They have only sold one.

Now if you want to see the current pet rock money maker, look at this. Make a box, stick a light bulb in it, watch them fly off the shelf. Best I can figure, this guy has sold over $12,000 worth since last year.

Well, we haul off several big truckloads a day to the horse farms and chicken houses. I guess now we’ll have to build a building to store it in. I suppose we could call it a sawdust bank. :)

Hey it’s organic kitty litter preserves from a sustainable cabinet shop. Two rare requirements justifying the cost :)
