Default jewelry box kits...really?

As you may imagine, when you're trying to market your product you have to keep an eye on the competition. My site is Ready To Build and we design, machine and sell all of our jewelry box kits in our two man shop (one woman, actually).

Today I was doing a search for jewelry box kits and found this from Grizzley. It costs $45 and is basically a piece of wood with no machining done and no hardware included so you'd have to have a shop full of tools to do this project. There are instructions...that's nice.


This is the kit we sell for $99 which has all hardware and materials included (velvet lining and mirror, extra). All of the machining is complete and all you have to do is put it together with tools you probably already have... no power tools are necessary. Now that's a jewelry box kit!


I'm not complaining, I just want to let people know there are some awesome kits available and we make them! So, if you know anyone who loves to try something new...spread the word. Thanks!

It is funny how they list the kit as "advanced." Maybe they should just sell plans. Anyone with the tools would just cut the blanks themselves, that is the whole point to having the tools in the first place.

I thought that also. I mean, you can just go to your local lumber yard and pick out what you need for much less and furthermore, there are lots of free plans out there for simple projects like this one is.
