It always helps to have some products that don’t take a lot of time or materials to make.
I use 5/4 stock that isn’t cupped, cupping makes them too thin when you get done planing.
I cut it to size on the miter saw, 15” x at least 7”, then I trace the pattern from an original I got from my mother in law that is over 100 years old. Then cut it out on the bs, then take it to the spindle sander with a narrow bit. Then plane, and route and sand.
Sounds like a lot, but when you get a dozen or so in the works, you’ll be surprised at how fast it goes.
I’m selling these for $25 each, $35 if you get them at my retail locations.
I think the price point is great on this item. It’s simple to make, and is one more arrow in your quiver of things to make money from.
