For a holiday stocking stuffer!
Needed a few more things to round out my cheaps for the season sales. Inspired by the Man Glitter posts on the interwebs.
The pine and Tennessee Cedar actually smell pretty good.

Come on! Are you kidding?

This is not a PROJECT and Lumberjacks is not the place to pimp your sales. Have you no pride or shame?

Not sure if you are serious or not…

Not trying to sell anything here.
It is a project. Always looking for ways to use up scraps. No different than when I would post a pile of cutting boards that I was bringing to market….

Not the most serious item I have sold but I think if you were to ask around having small items for sale at markets/fairs etc.. are a good idea and I thought I would share mine.
Now for the sake of fun I actually took time to blow out the jointer between runs so as to not cross contaminate the stuff, bought packaging and a rubber stamp, figured out the right amount of glitter per bag and so on. It’s all in the long game. I have found that by engaging a customer and getting them to laugh they not only buy the gag gift they buy more items. One of my biggest hits was Worry Wood, the light weight alternative to the worry stone….. I sold a few hundred of them. Not going to get rich but a few extra bucks when people dont bite on a $200 cutting board is a cheeseburger on the way home.

I had not seen or heard of Man Gitter. This wood glitter is funny and I can see it being a great conversation starter. Thanks for sharing, Jacob.

Excellent idea! I realy must admit, you guys in America can sold almoust everything there. In Croatia or even in Europe no chance anyone would even understood what and why I’m selling this.
Anyway, brilliant way to earn some money. It’s a living proof that there is no waste when wood is all about.

Men go to the lumber aisles in HD and Lowe’s just for the wonderful aroma! Walking though the forest for the same reasons!

Not sure if GnarlyErik is serious or not either. But I salute you Jacob. Having fun and selling at the same time is the best. I’ve been asked by customers to bring them a bag of sawdust for whatever gag gift they have in mind. I’ve done it several times – a ziplock baggie of dust and they are happy. The fact that you can sell it all the better. We love our gag gifts.

So yes, this is a project like any other.

Go Jacob Go!

I saw this earlier but couldn’t respond until now. I definitely thought GnarlyErick was serious. Is it a complex woodworking project? No. Is it worthy of posting? Absolutely. I think it’s a fun idea and glad you posted it. I hope you sell out this season! BTW, I checked out some of your other projects and I absolutely love the walnut and maple cutting board especially the genious concept for the base!

Thanks for sharing. It is a good idea for using more of the scraps

That is fantastic! I just emptied my dust collector bag last night and can’t imagine how many of these it would have made of mahogany and cherry… Good going !!
