Wow! that is hot seller.
If you don't mind me asking. How much do they typically sell for?
Not at all about asking. It takes me probably 1/2 an hour to turn, sand and get my first finish on. Let it sit overnight then hit it with Aussie Oil. So I probably have 3/4 of an hour into it. I can turn 12 in a day and also some key rings which I double stack on the mandrel. I sell them to a high end shop in Hawaii for $21.00, wholesale. He retails them for $43.00+. I also sell this same shop pens, key rings, coffee scoops and knives so I normally get an order that includes the items mentioned here. Almost forgot, he supplies the wood too.
