Meanwhile, I Putu Edit Andi Pratama revealed the initial difficulties he faced when starting this craft business, one of which was choosing the wood. Eventually, he and his father decided to only use two types of wood, such as Sonokeling, which has fine pores and exotic fibers, and Maple Wood, which is always used as a material for making guitar musical instruments because its fibers are finer than Sonokeling fibers and its pores are finer.

This craft business is not without its challenges. In the first six months of starting this business, he admitted to often experiencing failures.

“At that time, the most difficult part was carving the numbers on the clock frame inside the clock, they always tilted a few millimeters,” said Edit.

Although it is classified as handmade products or self-branded products under the brand “rocke handy craft,” the prices are quite affordable, ranging from Rp 350-430 thousand/piece, and its marketing has reached beyond Bali.

“The direct purchases are quite few, even more are ordered online. We usually serve direct purchases if the goods are available. But if the goods are not available, we serve pre-orders,” he said. (yud/ub)
