Seems like right now “rustic” is all the rage for crafty/homey/decoration type stuff. Which really is great, for lots of different reasons. If you are just looking to make a few extra bucks on the side, this is the stuff you want to be building for people. There’s no need for precise measurements, people rarely want any fine sanding done, brushed on finishes are just fine, and then the customer goes gaw gaw over the piece when it’s done. During the building process, the type A in me is having a fit and talking to myself “you can’t take money for these, they don’t look good at all!”. One of the hardest things I think for any woodworker selling their pieces is coming to grips with the fact that some of the things you make, are not going to be what you would call “great” pieces. That doesn’t take away from the fact that your customer is going to love it. Making “rustic” stuff is easy on the hands, not so much the mind.

Oh well, this weeks video and project:
