I wasn’t sure whether this belonged in projects or blogs… but this was a project!! After giving away about 50 cutting boards, boxes and candleholders, someone told me I should try selling them. What a novel idea for someone who does this for fun and relaxation. I got myself into an Artisan’s Fair about a month ago and sold out! I started with 43 items and brought back 3!! And… I got invited to participate in a 2 evening “shopping night” at a very high end furniture and gift store! So… now I have no stock and have 3 weeks to get enough to sell. Posted here are the “before” and “after” pictures. I had 34 boards of various sizes and wood configurations, 12 boxes and 3 candleholders. It is always interesting to see what does and does not sell. My boards with wenge in them did not sell… my boards with tigerwood (I had a sign about golfers) flew off the table! Everyone loves purpleheart accents in boards. In this case, size really didn’t matter ;-) !! I am really pleased as several woodworkers who were shopping commented on my work… one even bought something!
Thanks for looking… and happy holidays!
