If you hate those things you should get a different hobby.

-Too cold / Too hot to get out in the shop.

I agree with most your list. For example, note my tag line (The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before)’

As to inventing new jigs, I count modifications, such as my router dado jig, which requires no external clamps. Meanwhile, I have several others I’ve, still, yet to see anywhere on the net. Some are posted elsewhere on this site.

Customers that just want “a bookshelf,” or whatever, and have no specific design, leaving it all up to you.

A “friend” wanted an etched glass mirror for his in-laws. The only other info he could add is, “I like what you do” (I had a large inventory at home and in a few stores). I only charged him thirty-five for the 2’ x 3’ mirror, frame and etch. He didn’t like it (the photo below). I told him to insure it for $300.00, when he shipped it. It broke and he got three hundred (of course he didn’t share).

That you can cut the same board twice, even three times and it’s still short.
