Good luck Robert. You shouldn’t have any trouble selling your finely created rings.

Thank you all for your support, it really means a lot that I have the great members of Lumberjocks!!! Support!!
Oldnovice, I am pretty sure I can, since I am disabled I have pretty much nothing to do, Woodworking is my escape from the pain I have through my body. Legs are the worst!
If I don’t start selling some of the products I will have to stop making things, I just do not have the cash to keep buying supplies and giving the stuff away.
Not trying to give a sob story but this is the reason I am trying to sell some of my products!
The other reason I want to sell them is so I can keep on making the little things I do!! I simply LOVE IT!
Thanks again for everything you guys and gals!! .

Thank You, Oldnovice! It really means a lot!
I will say it is harder to set those sites up, and add all the content and pictures and stuff.
I will do the woodworking, over that stuff any day!

Thank you, Kelly
It is harder to set those things up than it is to make the products!
I’ll let you know.

Great looking rings. I’ve been wanting to make those for quite a while. If you are going to be a regular seller of small items like this, I would suggest getting a small photo tent. You can get a small one that comes with lights and a little table-top tripod on Amazon (among other places) for $20-$30. It will give you consistent results, and is even better if you have a place where it can be left set up. Your photos are good, but it’s just a lot easier if you have a place that’s always ready to shoot.

It looks like you’re going to do well Robert. Great looking rings.
Another suggestion to go along with Paul’s. The rings details are somewhat getting lost in the backgrounds. Rather than using rocks or wood, maybe a simpler cloth background to let the ring’s details pop.

Paul, thanks for the info! I bought one of those tents about a month ago some of these pics are older and some I been experimenting with the tent, it still takes a little practice to get good shots.
Paul thanks again, you should give it a try to make some rings. Did you see my blog on how I make some of them? Here is the link if you would like to check it out http://lumberjocks.com/WoodenFrog/blog/34552

Thank You, Gary that is some Great info I may try that, Like I said to Paul, some of these pics are old and I am trying new and different things, Kinda learning. the next pics I’ll take with a cloth and see what happens!
Thanks again, Both of you!!
