One of the measures of success for some is that time when you have honed your craft well enough that you have the confidence to sell your projects. Often by this time you have a number of projects you have made that could be sitting around gathering dust and maybe you would like to move them along to someone who would like them and perhaps even pay some money for them so you can purchase more wood.
One of the biggest challenges for woodworkers who would like to sell some of the woodworking projects is trying to decide how much to charge for them. This can be a real conundrum for some, so today I am going to give everyone some tips on the best approach that will work for them!
Anyone who is a turner, probably already knows that Pens can be high on the list of sales items. Don't ever think these are a thing of the past, pens have graduated from plastic stick pens to "works of art" and using one of these pens is more like having "writing jewelry" at the office or home. We don't use pens as often so when we do use them and they are attractive, people notice them. #woodworking
Entertainment items are another item that is always popular. Drink Coasters, Cheese Trays, Serving Platters, Drink Holders or Drink Carriers, Wine holders, and Carriers, are many items to think about. #woodworking
Another item that sells well is Signs and there are many different ways of making them. You do not need a CNC to make signs, a simple stencil works fine too and you make signs with many different sayings on them or cater to specific needs or specific industries. Here is where the custom making of signs can be an asset. #woodworking
Wine racks are always good sellers and there are TONS of different designs that will hold a variety of bottles. Smaller racks like this one are more popular than bigger wine racks which are more costly to stock.
At the top of almost every list of woodworking products that sell are cutting boards, but also related to that are kitchen items made of wood and there are lots of different things you could make. The 2 cutting boards below are very plain looking but the selling point to these is they are "working for cutting boards" not pieces of artwork, and they are the safest cutting boards you can have and they will last a long, long time. #woodworking
The items you pick to sell can be just as important as where you are selling them, but I will talk more about that in future related articles, for right now we are mainly concerned about what products sell that are more of a sure thing.
