    I think you'll find that you've made what you do look deceptively easy. I'd say car enthusiasts or those who know what goes into your work would be willing to pay more (I say this knowing my brother paid $80 for a small wombat crafted from sassifras). I think it is for this reason that people generally do a simpler car in bulk at lower prices, and then have more specialist items up for sale, and as a demonstration piece for special orders. I think my car crazy, woodworking enthusiast BIL would probably pay $75 to $80 for the one in your photos.

    I think there is a huge market out there for wooden toys. I also love the furniture idea.

    A local guy here makes kids panic tables with or without blackboard paint. They sell like hot cakes. He usually it's them up when he had four or five made.
    He makes all sorts of stuff from custom beds to cubby houses. His work is great.
    Pm and I will give you a Facebook link to his work. That might give you a price guide.

    That looks awesome! I have purchased quite a few wooden vehicles for my son from local markets and handmade kids stores and would probably pay $40-$50. If you took custom orders you could probably make a fair bit, DP is a car person and has an imported car which is uncommon to see in Aus, I think he would pay a small fortune to buy a wooden model for the kiddies.

    $40 would be my max even though the time spent on it would make it worth much more. Reason being my kids get bored of their toys quite quickly hence why I don't hand make much any more (used to make crochet toys).

    Would love kids furniture though especially good storage.

    Default What would you pay

    First of all I think you are very talented!

    I think though that the market for wooden toy cars/blocks etc is saturated. Probably have more of a chance of getting business/selling at a higher profit with either custom toys or custom kids furniture. Find a niche market and make your mark!
