The Wooden Wonder Watch

Posted by kevin doherty on March 28, 2019 at 1:45 PM Comments comments (0)


  Now and then along comes a product I just think is cool and have to tell others about.


 This week I stumbled across this watch. It's made of wood (walnut wood) no less and I just think it's the coolest thing. You know, being that I work with wood almost every day.


 It's said that the energy of trees can help any mind, body or even spiritual problem so with this watch touching your skin all day, I bet the feel of the wood must have a pretty calming and relaxing effect on your body and mind.


 It's also a very different and stylish piece of jewelry to be sporting around on your wrist all day to boot.


 Definately gets a thumbs up from this woodworker!


 Anyway , thought i'd share it with everyone, and if you'd like to pick one up for yourself,  here is the site where you can get these amazing watches. For 50% off right now!

Can You Make Money Woodcarving?

Can you really make money with your woodcarving?

Well, the answer is Yes.

But not without learning how to do at least decent quality work.


Sometimes you can hit just the right niche and that's all you need as long as your skills are good enough to produce a recognizable carving.


Wood spirits for instance like I like to carve are great sellers almost anywhere, they have many ways you can utilize them once you can carve them decent enough to sell. 


For instance you can put them on


Bottle stoppers, walking sticks, canes, wall hangings, knife handles, almost anything made of wood.


Here are some examples and places to sell your work.


Etsy.com is a great place you can open your own shop and sell.

Ebay.com is a great place to move woodspirits on a regular basis.


Flea Markets are always a great selling place where people get wowed everytime they see your carvings.


Art shows and craft shows sell well.


Make your own website and drive traffic to it such as Stixandstonewoodcarving.com

These are just a few ways to move your carvings.

Being a good business person is most of the work, the carving is the fun part. That's My Opinion
