Pine candle holders. Took a bit less the 3hrs for the 8 of them from start to finish. They won’t pay the mortgagebut hey, it still feels great to be handed cash for your work.

You’re a bit like me. I’d be making the stuff anyway and so if someone is willing to give me money in trade, I am a happy boy. And the thing I figure is that it is all about movement. Do this project… and then another shows up.

Congratulations, The candle holders look really nice! My first sell’s were my wagons, Next thing I knew people were saying, “hey, can you make this”? I love the feeling I get when someone really likes something I made. Even if it’s gifted, worth all the effort.
