I have always found wood crafts to be a cyclic craft. For the longest time large wood rustic decorative items were in, and then they were not, then they were back in again.
Primitive folk art was very much "in" in the 90s, and to a point it still is, but as many people begin to "zen" their living areas, and "declutter", large wooden pieces that just sat there and were not really useful became less sellable.
If you are a woodworker and love to make intricate jewelry boxes and things like that, then you still have a market since these because treasured and don't take up too much room. If you still love the idea of larger pieces then make something for the garden, or signs.
Since we started added words to our walls, to encourage us, and to believe and to love, then creating wood signs is another great wood craft idea to sell.
