I am not a regular poster, but I am a regular looker and learner. Over the last few years I have grown my side business with numerous members guides as to what to do as well as my own perspectives. I started out at craft shows and have been to over 60 since I started and I fell into a situation where I am at a market and show my wares every weekend. I do very well here with my items- turnings, cutting boards, etc.
What I want from you guys is your perspective and if you feel the same way as I do, a response…
The arrogance of this blew me away- I can’t imagine doing something like this and he is basically saying he is better that ALL others. When I got home today, I saw his website and laughed out loud- his items are nothing compared to the work on here. Just the tumbling blocks alone blow his away (in my opinion)
I thought it might be interesting to share with the members of Lumberjocks this guy and his work and encourage any of you to critique his work considering he considers himself the master of all cutting boards. I would also encourage you to send him an email to let him know your thoughts.
I will also say, my work is not amazing, it is basic end grain and face grain cutting boards, but they are basic because that is what the market will bear. I could go crazy on designs, but it would be a rare thing to sell them and get the labor involved out of them.
None the less, I encourage you all to tell him what your opinions of your boards are.
