This is a “sleeve” made from spalted live Oak milled down to 1/8” thick. It’s use is to slip over an “unsightly” flower pot so that it can be hidden. The angles were planed by hand on a shop made jig that works similar to a shooter board.

Thank you. I am fairly new to woodworking (I am a 25 year IT veteran), and hope to earn my living at this in the future.

from another geek. you should not have any trouble finding buyers for your quality of work. that killer wood is way to nice for flowers.. almost just needs a frame

hi geek!!

tell me, HOW do I go about selling some of my stuff (please don’t say “ebay”—I want to sell, not pay someone to take my items).

Build yourself a website and post your projects here on LJ with a link to it. You can also use etsy.com. Their fees are reasonable.
