So i am embarking on my biggest and most involved project to date. My wife has wanted nightstands for our bedroom for quite awhile, and now that my shop is very well setup i’m going to give it a shot. We did alot of research for a design that we liked. Myself being a lover of all things G&G but my skill level being no where near what’s needed i had to comprimise. We settled on an A&C look that i began modifying. Being an architect by trade i was able to take an idea...
Thanks to all who responded. Just in case you’re interested, my business plan is beginning to take shape. I have a web site up and running now (WAYNEWERKS.COM). I have displayed several of my products there, but haven’t done any pricing yet. I’ve also set up an account on ETSY.COM, but haven’t much luck there yet. I’m sure I’ll need to add more products in order to reach a larger demographic and increase the likelyhood of making sales. I’ve also set u...

Yesterday I delivered about 10 more scrollsaw items to the new craft mall that I have joined. In this mall I have leased one cabinet, with 4 shelves, each 42 inches wide and 24 inches deep. At the present time I am a long way from filling my space, as you can see. However the space was available and they do go FAST in this mall. I waited one day to make up my mind and it was one nervious day. The mall manager had promised to hold the space for that amount of time however still I had ji...
Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...
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 ...
I have written, several times, about what to do next with my scrollsaw work. I have considered lots of things, toys, 3-D objects, jewelry and others. Well, for the most part, I have made a decision. The work I like best is detailed fretwork. The more detailed the better. So I have decided this will be the main focus of what I do. Why would one try yo do things that is just not part of what they wish to do. I have the choice. I am not really in this for money. Yes, if I make enough to buy s...
Well I new this wouldn’t last. but it was great as long as it did, What I’m talking about is my wood sorce was a friend of mine worked at a factory that received there inventory with 1/8”, 1/4” and 1/2” plywood, and so he was able to pick up truck loads of it. Believe it or not, it was really nice wood. Beautiful grain, and I coulkd actually fit the pictures to the wood. Would you believe I lost his Phone number I have been trying to get ahoad of him, to get anot...
I just signed up to volunteer at the Seattle Bungalow Fair later this month. I have never been to the fair but it looks great. Has anyone been or planning to go? How is the overall atmosphere? Is it a worthwhile “fair” to attend for a recent Greene & Greene/Arts & Crafts fanatic? Love to meet up with some other LJ’s who will be in attendance. -Chris May Your Cuts be Tear Out Free!!!
Not being the most creative and obviously skilled I have taken up a huge project that I am hoping will make things functional and smooth for every project to come. I recently acquired a Dewalt planer DW 733 and a DW 745 for 350.00 in great condition from a close friend. My hope and plan is to do right by him and use them until they die or I die. The goal a large “L” shaped work station that will house a table saw area, compound miter station, planing section, router station and ...
