Well, this all sounds like good news so far. I hope you sell a bunch of pens. Sounds like you don’t have much to lose. Since you’re going there more for the experience rather than the profit, you might have more stubborn customers at a higher price range. I agree that people will pay $20-$60 for a nice wooden pen. Selling them at $15 might push them out faster and also get people to appreciate them more seeing as how they would be thinking less about the price tag. That might also get rid of more product in one day which would mean you don’t have to spend more time trying to sell them and you can go back to having fun woodworking. The cutting boards could easily go for $50+. I think it would be a steal at $50 and you might be able to price them as high as $65-$75.

I’m kind of in the same situation as you. I’m going to try to build stuff to break even or even turn a little profit on my hobby.

Good luck!!
