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...
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 ...
Finally finished this project. Turned out pretty good in spite of the table saw at work being way out of whack.
My marquetry work, “Seminal peace”, has been selected to be included in ”The Peace Project 2011”, an exhibit and fund-raising event. All net proceeds from sales of The Peace Project artwork and related products will be used in Sierra Leone to provide healthcare – providing 10,000 pairs of crutches and mobility devices to everyone in need throughout this entire post-conflict country. http://thepeaceproject.com/operation-rise.php Participating galleries include Gallery ...
The Dining chairs are coming along nicely now, with corner braces in place, and a mock up seat cushion.We found some nice genuine leather today, that is the same color as the mock up.
Here is the sketchup of the dining table and chairs I am currently building. The wood is QSWO with walnut pegs. The chairs are glued up, and ready for corner braces and pegs. The table should go quickly compared to the chairs. One chair has almost as many parts as the whole table. Cheers and happy woodworking!
So for the past few weeks I’ve been working on a sideboard bar cabinet. Like so many of us on here, I am drawn to the Arts and Crafts style. The idea of deriving beauty from simplicity, the honesty of good joinery, and a reliance on solid materials and skilled craftsmanship really appeals to me. I’m about 2 or 3 weeks away from completion I would say, and when it’s done I’ll be posting a full build blog with pictures of every step of the way. For now though, here ar...
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar (1926 – )...Motivational author and speaker Miraculous Staircase of Santa Fe NMThe Miraculous Staircase of the Loretto Chapel located in Santa Fe New Mexico is an amazing piece of carpentry and woodworking. If this work of art were built today, the reaction of people would be the same as it was when this set of stairs was completed...
My kitchen table is cheap, really cheap. But it looks decent. So far it’s a plastic table with a plywood top. I want to have legs so that the table can slide under the kitchen bench. Here’s the new leg design. The legs should cost less than $5 since they are only two of 2×4s. Joinery connecting the legs will be through tenons and the top will be joined to the legs with Kreg pocket screws.
