Beth,

I’ve made several c.bs for gifts for family, but not for friends….My wife owns/operates a beauty salon, and it has an extra room where she sells gifts, jewelry, etc. She sells them on consignment for customers, so I’ve made some of different styles and thicknesses to sell. I make them from 3/4”—- 1 1/4”, and not all are endgrain. They sell for about $35—50, and are one of the biggest sellers she has, especially around Christmas, and for birthdays, gifts, etc….Most of mine are a combination of maple, cherry, walnut, and purpleheart…..nothing exotic in design, just simple…..but I guess they sell ok, as she tells me when she’s running low…..:) Also cup holders made of hardwoods, and Shaker pegs….another seller….She has mostly “old people” for customers, and it’s easier for them to just buy from her instead of having to get out running around for gifts….So I can afford to “give them a break” on price when I build up several….that’s just me…..you may have a different aggenda for yours…...I just use the “sale money” to buy more wood, when the supply dwindles…..:))
