Are you selling many? Seems a little expensive; however, if there is a demand then good for you.

Thank you for the comments,

Pottz regarding your comment:

I learned a while ago that retail has to be double wholesale. So if someone wants a bunch you have to make them for half because most retailers want the item for half or what they call keystone. Does $22.5 seem expensive? Do you have a online shop?

22.50 seems way too expensive,cmon its wooden blocks that I could make 10 sets start to finish in an hour,im sorry but I don’t see people paying that if they do rub it in my face and then im getting in the block business.good luck.

$45, if these actually sell for that, the old saying is true, there IS a sucker born every minute.

Pottz,

How would you make 10 sets in a hour? Every surface is sanded and all edges are routed with 1/16 bit and they all are rubbed with mineral oil. Maybe you have a more efficient production method you could share with me.

Thanks,

Adrian

Adrian maybe you should look at my shop pics,i could easily handle your simple project in an hour.its called mass production, been done for over a hundred years.not trying to put you down, just trying to soften the landing when you hit the ground.

There is a market for high end safe toys, and people willing to pay for them. they are beautiful toys, so much better then electronics!
