    Selling your work

    So here is the deal. I made up some more cutting boards for the upcoming farie season. I used triangle strips and in the glue up on 2 boards they slipped up. So what that does is when you rip them parallel and square off the ends. One side ends up with a bevel ripped on the last strip. Kinda funny looking but still a functional cutting board.
    The question is do you sell it or toss it in the fire?

    Chuck if it was me i'd bring it and give someone a good deal. If you can't sell than you could burn.

    Offer a buy one get one free deal. Sell the good ones for 20% more than you would usually ask for and toss in the other one free. Such a deal

    i had similiar situation this summer had a product that due to cheap ply warped after i had it put together sold it at a discount just like blemish tires or scratch and dent sales.. we cant pitch our work chuck we must get at least the material cost out of it..it doesnt take away from your quality it shows that you are watchun your quality of work and wont sell it at full price..giving those a chance to get a nice board for less money..am not sure that is good business sence but it is the way i handled it on my case.
