Hi All, Ive been lurking on the forums for a while and finally decided to post up some of my work.
I have been experimenting with inlayed chopping boards with a view to trying to sell a few. This was a bit of an experiment to see how much detail could be achieved and im fairly happy with the result.
The Board is Jarrah with an Tasmanian oak inlay and is ~470mmx310mm
Wow. Awesome detail. Love the contrast. Cannot believe you waited this long to post your work. I would have been sharing that with the masses. Not lurking. Real talent. Thanks for sharing. Look forward to seeing more of your works.
They look great to me, as Dwayne has said you should have been posting your projects ages ago
If the boards you took were similar to what you have posted then maybe a maker market isn't really the right place to be trying to sell them, lot of work in them & prices should really reflect that, you are probably looking to find a niche market for that sort of work.
I was actually at a Makers market today and nobody seemed that interested in the inlayed chopping boards Im going to need to work on my marketing game now
The challenge of "Makers Markets" is finding something to make at a price point which is reasonable and the item can be easily carried. We sell items primarily in the $20-$50 range and display items up to $300 aware that we won't sell any that day but show customers what you are capable of which may lead to follow up or custom orders. We rarely sell any item over $125 at a market.
