Hey Marine, welcome aboard. Retired Army here, about 9-10 miles east of Raleigh. Not a bad state.
Just don't make the mistake I've seen many retired guys do. They price their stuff way low, just so it will sell, which is well and fine, except they don't consider the time it takes to do their pieces, by the time you take out for material costs, if you figure out an hourly rate, some of these guys are earning around 50 cents an hour. If they just want to pass the time, get back materials cost, and pocket a buck or two, no problem in that at all. But if they're interested in actually supplementing their income, that's not a good way to go about it.
I got a stop watch, and timed my work. Some steps I thought took 2-3 minutes, maybe actually took 5, even 10, or more, minutes. Worked on that, changed some things, and got the time cut way down.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
