Lots of fun - I liked the vertical slot machine ones that zoomed round & round & round, like pachinko machines.
I'd forgotten pennies don't have the portcullis!
(I'd also be a git and have different size / weight ball bearings .)
Shove ha'penny board? Might sell a load of them & this at CAMRA etc festivals. Even a doublesided ha'penny/bagatelle board! Own carry case..
Having said that - if someone mentions monetising something I've done, the first thing is 'Fark off! I did it for fun & learning!'.
Good work, as per usual!
Thank you. Selling my creations is something I find really difficult. For certain, there are some things that will never be sold (Like this Bagatelle board, for example - I'd make others, but this one stays in the family). The hard part about selling is pricing. If I was in London with access to some of the stores there it wouldn't be so hard. Let's use my Bagatelle board as an example. There must me £25-£30 of materials. It took me about 12 hours to make (not including glue and finish curing time) In |Scotland the living wage is £9.50. So that's £114 + £30 = £144, plus various other costs like delivery (that won't be cheap), Then there's those incalculable costs: Electricity, wear on planes and saws, sand paper, brushes, finishes, glue etc etc etc) So we're already at £150.00 - and that's paying myself minimum wage. As someone once said to me "Why are you charging £50.00 for that (handmade, highly polished, unique) salad bowl? I can get one in Tescos for a fiver". Most folk these days don't care about artisan made, unique, individual products. They want cheap with instant gratification. I've even had people balk at paying £10.00 for a hand turned pen!
