A feeling of true accomplishment.
This guy sold well in the #benefitnate live auction, and despite the fact that I didn't personally receive compensation for it, it was very rewarding to hear and see people bid on something that I made.
A big difference this go-around was that I worked with easier scraps (a cleaner pallet and fence wood), so I didn't have to spend as much time prepping the materials as I did last time. I also didn't have the rookie learning curve I had last summer. AND Jeff helped with some of the physical labor, like ripping the initial pallet, so it sped up the process.
