As some may know, I have a slot in the local farmer's market. I sell small planters, bird houses, squirrel feeders, along with pens, boxes, and other things, including shaving kits. Two weeks ago a man stopped by and was looking at the kits. He placed an order and it will be delivered this Saturday.

Here is his order completed:

See "Shaving Equipment"


The woods are left to right, Zebra Wood, Zebra Wood, East Indian Rosewood, and Alternate Ivory. The stylus at the bottom is from tiger wood. He picked the woods and styles. He did not want a brush for the ivory, he already had one. They are for his sons and grandson.

The retail total was $385.00 needless to say he got a discount, but I still made a good enough profit. I need more orders like this!!

Those are very cool, Bob, what a fun commission. Personally, I think "fun" and "turning" should always go together. :) I would love to see a picture of your booth at the Farmer's Market!
