A few thoughts and, as you asked, I will be blunt – -

If I buy on e-bay I can usually see the very piece I am buying and often I can see it from a couple of different angles. With your site, all I know is that I am ordering a “generic turning blank”.

You’re not telling me if the turning blanks are green or dry and it green are they sealed.

You’re not telling me anything about the quality code of the hard wood boards (i.e. S&B)

Sycamore is a neat wood, but most people don’t know how neat it is. You need some close-ups of the grain or (better yet) some pictures of a finished bowl that really shows off what the wood can do.

It took me a while to figure out how your pricing works. It took a while to figure out what the (+xx) beside the sizes meant. It was not intuitively obvious.

You have a dilemma. You really need more selection but I am sure you don’t want to add more until you get some sales.

I wish you well.
