hi boysie it is mainly different thickness of soft wood from my timber merchant quite cheap to buy , some planed and some just rough sawn but i am fussy about quality and grain pattern and picking bits that are mostly knot free and without splits , the guys up there are used to me now and dont think it strange when im selecting my pieces and understand what im after , its like you want this bit and i hold it up rub my hands over it whilst looking at grain pattern and spilts and ill say no no good and move onto next bit lol
May I ask what sort of prices that you sell these for? Its just that I am interested in doing a few craft fairs in the future to help me pay my way through university and I'm trying to get an idea of what I can earn for my efforts.
Nice looking work Mark ..looks like you are a little factory at full production..If I had to do that much in a weekend it would be a job not fun....not bean in my shed for a couple of weeks..cheers geoff3
well geoff i guess im lucky as it is a second job but fun also , i find it de stressess me from day job tucked away with heater and radio on , i guess if i made a piece that took me 100 odd hours that wouldnt be fun for me at all , but the guy who does that probably wouldnt find what i do fun so its horses for courses.
adam the stuff i sell ranges between 6 and 12 pound for regular stuff the rocking horses i sell for 65 i only do in spare time but i dont do bad over the year.
