Project Submission Struggling to make a profit.
I really enjoy making the trailers, I build them from the ground up, but it just takes so long too finish each one, the shop overhead and materials costs are draining the profits. No shortage of orders. Am I just not charging enough? $22,800 fully equipped, 3 months to build, $10k in materials m, $2000/ mo shop rent, insurance, etc. And no, I’m not advertising. Already have more orders than I can handle! Just looking for advice on how to survive!🙂

Project Submission Requesting Critique
Hi Folks - I’d love to hear your thoughts on this piece. I used the golden ratio a bunch and generally find the result pleasing, but there’s something I can’t put my finger on that isn’t quite doing it for me. I think it might be the consistent thickness of the legs. Maybe they need to taper toward the middle? Not sure, but open to critiques.
If it would be helpful to have a shot from another angle, let me know. I’m planning on building more like this one and would like to home in on the best tweaks I can make to improve the design (doubling the thickness of the base might be another one).
Cheers and TIA

Project Submission Made a NO epoxy coffee table for my home. Wife thinks I should add a piece of glass to the top for functionality, I like it as is. What do you think.

Project Submission Didn’t find a table i liked, so I made one instead
It’s made of 60mm nordic birch and a simple base i welder together. Was going for a rustic look and is to my surprise very sturdy.

Project Submission I made 60 river coasters for my upcoming wedding
I’ve spent the last three months making these with fairly basic tools in a 2m x 1m shed. They’ll be the place names and gifts for attendees at our upcoming wedding.
It’s really rewarding, but was tedious at time.
Alder wood, Epodex epoxy, finished with Osmo extra thin and PolyX.

Project Submission A parcel box I made so any parcels can be left somewhere safe if I'm out
Inside is a small, cheap Kmart WI-FI motion sensor that sends me a notification when parcels drop down as well as a motion sensor light that activates when the door opens.
I 3D printed the "PARCELS" label and painted the whole thing relatively neutral colours so when I move it doesn't clash with any future houses.
So far the postie seems to have been fairly impressed with it but couriers seem to just ignore it.

Project Submission I'm 30 and I've never made anything... so I went for it.
As a result of the inspiration of this group, my wife was discussing a toddler helper stool and I quickly responded "I can make one." All I had was a drill at that moment. I was lucky enough to receive a table saw from my father a few weeks after deciding to make this. I had to buy a kreg jig and a few other things for finishing. I spent a ton of time on this and I learned a million things. I had great help from a friend in this group who also hooked it up with the wood. I officially have a lifetime hobby. Take care yall! I will share the wood type after I see some thoughts on it.

Project Submission My screen porch I built in 2020
I replaced a rotting old deck in my backyard during the Covid shutdown with this 15x16’ screen porch. I had never really built anything besides some cabinets for my car so this was quite the undertaking. It took about two months with a little help from my neighbor. I was originally going to paint all of the framing white but I couldn’t help myself once I picked up the cedar.

Project Submission Dream over, divorce sucks. It’s been a pleasure thanks for everything.
Can’t take the shop to an apartment so I had to sell everything off. Luckily went to a man wanting to start getting into woodworking. I hope these tools bring him the same kind of joy.
Thanks to this community for all your inspiration and the few who took time to look at what little stuff I posted here. This will be a big part of me I will miss. Be thankful for your shops and keep making all your wonderful projects.
Best of luck to everyone. Maybe see you guys again one day.
