I made homemade puzzles, out of 1/4" lunon, of the hot kid characters at the time and I sold the crap out of them. They are easy to build my wife would paint, it was a fun project. We just got tired of it after awhile. Also I think it's something that would actually increase in value and become heirlooms. Hey, I may start doing it again.

If you are a decent artist painter I've seen alot of small novelty signs for kitchens, baths, garages, bars. You can be as simple or creative with the design shape of the wood plaque and the painting. Birdhouses are popular espec is you use old cabinet handles, key holes, keys etc. I was given a hand painted, personalized step stool for my daughter and she loved it. Custom headboards are also popular. If you have access to any barn wood you try making mantel tops or a wall mounted coat rack with antique door handles.

I agree with a previous post that you won't be able to survive on the proceeds but you could at least have some fun.

As others have said if your doing this as a hobby that pays for itself you'll do ok, if you want to make a living then probably not.

The one thing I have heard that people make a living at is chainsaw carvings if you are in the right area. Beches, bears, chairs and all sorts of stuff. do a google search for 'chainsaw carving'
