    Default 3 Scrap Wood Projects to Sell

    Hi all,

    I made a video on 3 easy woodworking projects that sell great.
    These can all be made with scrap wood and each would only take 15 minutes to make.
    Let me know here or on the video if you have any comments on each item or the video itself.
    If you think this is helpful let me know what you would like to see in the next video.


    Cheers,
    Ray

    havent watched the vid but my question....
    where are you going to sell them?
    what/ who is your competition?
    What is special / better about yours than anyone else?

    My artist wife has a decent laser cutter and did the cruise ship markets selling her MDF designs, along side people selling soaps, clothing, plants Australian souvenirs made in China etc It wasnt until I convinced her that selling stuff that represented or mentioned our town, Tuna, sharks, and then expanding from there, that suddenly we had tourists both Aussie & international lining our pockets. We have now expanded but that is what started our growth.
    I would love to grow my own food, but I can not find bacon seeds

    These 3 items would be sold at local craft shows/markets and some online groups but not stores like etsy, they would be flooded with similar items. A secondary aim from this was some friends asking how to get into woodworking so I thought of 3 simple projects.

    Love stories like yours, hopefully growth continues and your wife is enjoying designing the various items, have you any pictures to share?
    A good laser or cnc router can open up many opportunities, I am currently deciding whether to get a shapeoko 4 XXL or wait for the 5 mid year.

    I got tired of erecting gazebos and watching the weather, so starting googling this was what I found that set off a chain of events, the manufacturer wouldnt talk so I designed my own.
    Then being a non welder freaked out at what the frame was going to cost @ $90 hour then got put onto the local prison engineering workshop. $10/hour plus 2 guests that used to work at the biggest trailer plant in Adelaide.
    Then for cash caravan repair guy helped me skin it. Total cost <$20K but it has proved itself in marketing.

    just realised there are no Pt Lincoln items there.
    The old village houses are all from photos of Old Tailem Town.

    Wow, from my experience, normally when people say they have a laser cutter they end up with keyrings and mats, these pieces are brilliant.
    The trailer looks is finished very well, if you had that here you would be getting many people trying to buy it along with the contents

    thank you. The original photo was a google search and more digging turned up an outfit in England, snotty ole pomie gits werent interested in sharing or selling their plans< so stuff em.

    There is an awning that comes out from the aluminium tube at the top and gives protection, both sides open up parallel to the main body. When you hire a stall/market site over here you are hiring a 3x3M or 6x3M area this fully open comes in at 5.8M and if the 'wings' are left as shown total width is 2.9M good design work there,
