This snowman house is cut from 1/4" thick wood. The house is about 7" tall. 


Selling wood crafts is fun and challenging.

In my opinion, there are two wood crafts which are easier to sell. Simple or unique. If you can come up with a unique product that is also simple then all the better.

Simple projects can be embellished with unique woods or local themes. One example was a gentleman who attended a church that was being torn down so they could build a new church. He purchased a couple of the pews from the old church and used the wood to make simple crosses. Everyone in the congregation wanted one. He turned a simple product into something special. This is not a great example because he gave the crosses to the people for free. Still, you get the idea.

Unique projects also can sell well but they have to be unique and either interesting or useful. These are much more difficult to come by but if you do then you may have a hit. The problem with unique projects is that they don't stay unique very long if they sell well. Everyone will sell them soon.

An example of a unique scroll saw project was cutting angled concentric rings on the scroll saw and stacking them into a bowl form(example below). This was very unique until everyone started making them. Now they are just somewhat unique. This is again not a great example because the bowls are too labor-intensive. 



If you could combine the "simple" of the cross in the first example and the "unique" of the bowl in the second example then you may have a nice selling product. No guarantee but it is a good place to start.
