    I plan to have a little stall outside the makerspace for when parents collect the kids at the end of the day (the joy of living in the school grounds, they have to walk past my door to get to the school) and the PTA have said I can have a stall at the school Christmas fayre.

    I think around 100 pieces since I started in November, I've sold quite a few pieces to staff at work, I've gifted a lot to friends and family, I have a shelf in the maker space with most of what I still have and the rest are in the house, probably about 15 to 20 pieces.

    Thats gorgeous dude, I always struggle to decide what to charge for my woodwork stuff but usually when I do private jobs for people (before being a school caretaker my trade was bricks, concrete and drainaged) I usually charge £100-150 a day plus materials
