  1. I didn’t want to go into price detail too much because it greatly varies by location. What I sell them for locally here in my small Indiana town wouldn’t compare to bigger cities. I suggest looking to see what others are charging nearby, and then not beating their price, but beating their quality! Thanks for watching!

  2. What is ur recommendations on the best way to sell wood working projects?
    I’m thinking bout getting a booth for $75 a month at antique mall. Too cheap or is there other ways. I would like to do this full time one day so I’m committed to the process. I’ve made headboards out of pallet wood with a finished epoxy

  3. John… Your flags are absolutely inspirational to my husband and I. We have built a few of these flags so far but are very unhappy with the color of stain we are getting. I am using the same brand but Sherwin Williams doesn't blend the colors right. Where do you get your stain custom made? Please PLEASE help!!!

  4. I've tried carving out the stars after using the WINWAX true black in this video but the black really likes to stick and doesn't want to come off in some areas. Do you have any tips on how to get the black to come out with that finish?
