Band saw boxes, cutting boards, rolling pins, boxes are all good uses for offcuts and scraps, especially for those who have a stash of exotic woods.

Saw this at a flea market last weekend, and thought this was a pretty cool thing to do with all that nice stuff.

How much were they asking for these yo yos? I am involved in an annual craft show table that sells little gadgets but struggle to get a decent price for anything so am always interested in what others get for their work.

They're listed at $15.00/ea on their website. Given the amount of labor involved, hardly seems like a profitable venture. Yet, to each his own.

I think it's very unusual to get what your work is worth at these small craft shows. The object, for me at least, is to make a few bucks for Special Olympics and not to make any personal profit. I know there are some that make profit from woodworking but they are few and far between as far as I know. We are stuck in world where it must be cheap to sell. Check out the number of Dollar Stores that are opening.
