    Hello everybody,
    I'm trying to start a business in the ever so non-profitable business of woodwork, via Knotty Woodpecker. To make things even more difficult, I build using only non-powered hand tools (except my favorite corded drill).

    Im just getting started, so would it be ok to share my new designs for some feedback?

    Im not trying to sell in this post or break any rules. Please let me know if this is ok.

    My most recent build is a bookshelf,
    Texture remains from the hand tools, slim, lightweight but sturdy. This one is made from knotty pine and espresso stain.

    Considering the build time and cost of materials, I might have to offer them for $500-1000, with some customization on size, type of wood and finish.

    its hard to compete with ikea, etc.
    if you’re going to the troubl of the dovetails, maybe through tenons for the shelf end would add value.

    Ikea is a tough one, but a bit of a different market.
    Thanks for the tenon idea.
