Just out of curiosity. Do you guys think there would be a market for these? & where do I start price wise? just "wondering", Cheers. Andy.

There is always a market for hand made items. However getting back your time and material costs are another matter. As a pricing guide I would search out and see if anyone else is doing it and see what their prices are.

This actually looks pretty good...I've seen other subjects in wood like this, but no real big rigs...We have craft stores here in the U.S. that this would be right at home in...If you could figure a way to mass produce them, I think you have a pretty good thing...

These are outstanding but I think you would have a better chance of selling them if you consign or sell them to a truck stop or somewhere they specialize in that type of item
