What would you like to see on sale?
Lately I've been thinking about sales. Not about how many pieces did I sell or about sales volume over all but about running a sale on my products for you, our customers. If you could make up your own sale on my products what would it be on? Pens, salt & pepper mills, bottle stoppers or spice grinders? And what would the discount be? When would the best time for a sale be? I may never be able to use what you tell me but I really am curious about this and would appreciate your input. If you were running Dailey Woodworking what would you create for a sale?
I have spent my whole life immersed in the woods of Maine. I grew up hunting, fishing, ice fishing, snowshoeing, skiing, snowmobiling and spending as much time as possible outside. It only seems natural for me to be working with wood. I am a self taught woodturner. I have spent numerous hours refining my turning skills and when not turning I have spent a lot of time working on shapes. The shapes that I turn come to me from everywhere. It could be the shape of a distant mountain, the curve in the road, architecture and images from old pictures. All of my products are turned by eye and like in nature there are no two pieces ever alike.
