So Ive been off work for week and half-ish. Bored out my skull and had the itch to fab. I didn't have the coin to drop on materials for Ronnie's bumpers, so I opted for something different. I needed a table for my living room as the last one suffered an unfortunate drinking accident. I got most of the materials for free and a had a very rough idea of how to build it. I started with a frame and just designed everything else on the fly. Took about 20 hours to make. My dad put the bug in my ear that I should make another one and sell it but I have no idea how to value it.

Wood is just cheap pine.
















What have you guys made, looking for some insperation for my next project.

That looks awesome! You could prob make a few bucks selling them. You would not want to have another drinking accident with that table I'm sure. Definetly would cause some damage. To you and not the table.  :)

That is great.  Check out crowsnesttrading.com and see what they ask for furniture.  Would think many would pay well over $1000.  but must reach those people to sell and make money.

Get on ball, make matching/or not, end tables and tv stand, bring them with you on next trip to Montana, and I'd give you 5 grand for 'em!

I'd put my drink on it.  ;D  Seriously though, that's pretty nice and I bet you could sell it for a decent profit.  You should consider a set, with end tables and so on.

Holy chit, is there actually that kind of money to be made in this stuff?! I wouldn't even think of asking half of 5 grand for a set of tables. Maybe this wouldn't be too bad of a side income as long as I avoid the tax man. Next ones I make I'll be using my bender.

Money in Furniture? You're damn right there is. Especially the Rustic & Vintage appearing furniture.

VERY nice stuff man!!

and as far as money in furniture - even the cheap stuff has been keystoned (doubled) and the higher stuff often has a 150% or more markup on it.

i guarantee people would pay good cash for those.  i did some work for a guy who sold rustic furniture and i am 100% certain if he would have had 10 of those in his showroom they would have all sold in a week.
