I just don’t know what would be a good product to make and sell. Does anyone have any ideas ? Some pointers and tips would be good. I like making lathe stuff but I don’t think there is much money in it. Maybe some furniture or boxes ?

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #21: I have no business mixing business with friendships

1499 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Everybody I know warns that business and friendships don’t mix. I have heard that from others for many years and I have also had experiences with it. Once (many years ago) my best friend and I decided to have a little craft business together when our kids were babies so we could do something at home and make a little extra money for ourselves. That almost ended in disaster, as we disagreed and mis-communicated on a couple of issues which resulted in a few years of us not really talking...

Box making. My oppinion and theory.

1532 days ago by thatwoodworkingguy | 4 comments »

I have been making boxes for some time now. I was thinking today about my views of boxes and box making and thought I would share my opinion of the wooden box and maybe someone will take something away from this.Boxes to me are the best examples of functional beauty.A box is a square object used to hide away your valuables and jewelry. That being said I only put trays and compartments inside a box unless the customer specify. I do this because why limit the function of the box to just jewelr...
