    The price contrasts interestingly with overpriced "art" objects sold on Etsy. For example:



    One view is that, at least with internet sales of handcrafted goods, we haven't yet reached Economic equilibrium. In a more mature marketplace, the anthill casting sells for $50, and the glass model steam engine sells for $10,000.

    This guy has a great YT, and is essentially undiscovered, with hardly any views: https://www.youtube.com/user/Sklozam/videos

    Internet 5 years ago: "Check out this cool video - it's got millions of views!"
    Internet today: "Check out this cool video - it's still under 500 views!"

    10 second video:

    His glass auto has an all-glass universal joint in the steering wheel connection. Next time you're bored try to suss out the procedure you would use to produce such a part.
