ScrollSaw Information and Resources #17: ScrollSaw Accessories ?????

10-22-2011 07:43 PM by jerrells | 7 comments »

So as Christmas is just around the corner the family has askled what TOOLS I want for Christmas. Well being a scrollsawer and loving to do smaller and smaller work I am looking for suggestions on new tool toys. To go with my scrollsaw I have a complete Dremel set up and that works well. As well I have a big router table, table saw and most all the hand tools. IT would seem to me that there would be a selection of small power tools for the scrollsawer. Like a mini-band saw, mini drill press a...

Nightstand for CPAP Machine #3: Material cut sheet - Plywood for Two

10-16-2011 01:09 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

I tried using cutlist for sketchup and it didn’t make great choices so I flattened out the sheet goods and made sure they fit onto a sheet of plywood precut to 2ft x 4ft. There is enough material to make two nightstands. Material identification: Material Sizes:

Nightstand for CPAP Machine #2: Improved material usage

10-15-2011 11:53 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

I did some changes to try and get most of the pieces for two nightstands from one sheet of Oak plywood. I have a subcompact car so I had the guy at Lowes Depot cut the wood into four pieces (2 ft x 4 ft each) with the grain running the 4 ft direction. Here’s a link to the Sketchup file . To get the material to mostly fit, I eliminated the two lower shelves. Here’s a link to the picture .

Nightstand for CPAP Machine #1: Sketchup Model

10-15-2011 04:13 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 1 comment »

I have a CPAP machine for OSA and my nightstand doesn’t have enough room for the machine and a clock. The CPAP has to be lower than the top of the mattress for safety reasons. I also got one of those memory foam mattress pads and now my nightstand is way too low. My current nightstand has two drawers which I like. So what I want is:- Nightstand as tall as the bed- Shelf for CPAP machine- Hole in side of stand for CPAP hose- Two drawers- Back behind drawers,but no back behind CPAP (ma...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #16: Going to do the Consignment Store

10-13-2011 04:09 AM by jerrells | 2 comments »

I have been asking questions and seeking information about Consignment store opportunities both in my BLOG and through other sources. As I described I ran across a Consignment store opportunity that seems like the perfect starting point. The basic details are. 1. You lease store shelf/floor, wall space by the foot. A three foot shelf will run me about $20 per month.2. I set the selling price of all items I have in the store. I also place price tags on all items per store instructions.3. Th...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #15: Consignments Stores - Are They Worth It?

10-08-2011 02:53 AM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have been scrolling for some time and have sold by word of mouth and at a few Arts & Craft shows. All with a fair amount of success. Now I have found an opportunity to be involved in a Consignment Store to sell my product. However, my question is, are these worth the effort. The arrangement for this consignment store is the rent/least space by the shelf. You pay $20 per month for a shelf that is three foot wide and about 18 inches deep. All of the basic fixture items are provided lik...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #14: First Craft Show - It Was Fun

10-03-2011 02:51 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

As any or you know who have looked at my postings for the past month or so I attended my first craft show last Saturday. This was a local event at a mission location of my Church. Seemed to be a safe place to start and it helped a cause the I well support. Overall I think I did fairly well. On of the first rules of craft shows is to recover the amount of your booth space. I did that in the first hour. Secondly is to sell some product and I well did that. Thirdly is to gauge the quality of ...
