My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1410: Showcase Saturday #1 - Olde Moon Lane Primitives

09-27-2014 12:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Many of you know how much I love and respect other designers and hand made items. Be it painted, wood, glass or just about anything in between, I have always been drawn to others who love to create finished projects to sell. One of the (many) wonderful things that I find in my daily travels on the internet and on Facebook is that there certainly is no shortage of talent in our world, and no matter what taste you have or which season you are shopping for, there is a great wealth of styles and ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #32: Selling on the ETSY WEB Site

06-26-2012 02:20 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

I am considering posting my scrollsaw products on the ETSY WEB Site. Hoave any of you experience with this process and have you had success. The whole idea seems simple. Very low cost to post an item – 20 centrs for four months and then 3.5% or the sale if you make one. Looking at the site stats it seems to get a lot of traffic – 1.3 million page views per month and 3 million items sold. This really seems like a NO-BRAINER. YEs if you really want to be successful you have got t...

Projects, the backstories #4: Cane in mystery red wood

03-25-2014 09:45 PM by PASs | 3 comments »

I use a lot of dunnage for my projects.It’s from freight shipped out of India and is usually some type of exhotic hardwood.Some pieces are a reddish hardwood. It has a very fine grain, is VERY hard, and every piece has cracks running down it.I have decided to only make mallets and other hard type things out of it.But I’d already cut a cane blank and decided to go on and make the cane. Besides I wanted to see how it turned out. I’d turned the blank to round a few weeks ago...

Balanced Work Bench #2: building the leg vise

07-18-2013 03:38 AM by Jeremiah | 0 comments »

i have never made a leg vise before and i have no idea what to expect with the one i made. The basic concept came from Shop Notes. And i like the basic concept. However, i do NOT like the price of ACME Rod, ACME nuts or ACME ANYTHING. so i went with “off the shelf” 3/4” threaded rod from LOWES. I dont know if this will bite me in the butt or not. But just in case, i built the vice so i could change it out if i need to use a better threaded rod. The dimensions ...

One of those days

09-11-2009 01:56 AM by Martina | 15 comments »

Ok – so as most of you know I have picked up the woodworking bug, and a big thanks to a special someone – I have recently grown with power tools! I love the tools and the more I get the more I woodwork… it has become a nightly thing that I enjoy. Until last night! So here is how the night went:I left work around 8… Stop at the local Home Depot – needed glue, and something to clean the stainer off my favorite paint brush – any suggestions? I almost bou...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #38: New Mall to Sell my Scrollsaw items.

07-27-2012 12:42 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have had my scrollsaw items in a small shop for about a year. Done OK however not great. As I have posted I have considered other venues but till yesterday had not chosen one. Yesterday I made verbal commitment to take space in a “MALL” craft store. This location was a grocery store until converted into a craft mall. All kinds of product from old antiques to new hand made items. Based on the research I did this mall is very well traveled. I first found out about it from a fri...

Starting a new woodworking business #1: new business

12-17-2009 04:06 AM by Wayne | 5 comments »

I’ve been toying with the idea of starting my own woodworking business for literally decades. Now, at age 61 I think I finally have the nerve to do it. I don’t have any illusions about what I’m about to do. I don’t want to go “big time”. I just want to sell some of my work and (probably) use the money I make to buy more woodworking toys. I don’t really want to do much on a large scale. Little things like jewelry boxes, keychain bobs, hand carvings and...

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 ...
