My last (and only) attempt at a Craft/Art show was not a huge success. Other than good company and a festive atmosphere, it was a lot of work for little sales. You guys all know that woodworking is an expensive hobby (or business for you talented guys) and if you don’t make some money, you are limited in what you can do (or what the wife will allow you to do.) I have been placing a few boxes in boutiques and galleries instead of at shows. I’ve had the same lackluster resul...

I attended the Charlotte Woodcarvers show last weekend, and it was amazing! I was mesmerized the whole 3 days with the great people I met, the awesome carvings, and the sense of fellowship and camaraderie that was everywhere to be found. I took many pics, and whittled them down to these. I named the artist when possible, and wish that more people had labeled their work after the judging so I could have given them credit for work well done. I also entered 3 piec...

I was invited to display (sell) at an artists bazaar, held yesterday, Nov., 24. I have never done that before, in fact, it is really just the last year or two that I have sold my stuff. The bazaar seemed to have a feminine slant to it, lots of girly stuff! There were about 25 booths. I took every fancy little trinket box I could make. I also took a few games I had made for my folks last year. They were not impressed with Shut the Box, or Quarto. And I made up some cedar bird feeders ...

I know I am kind of late to get into the Craft Shows this year but first I need to decide if doing Craft Shows is the thing for me. Do I want to tie up my weekends with the shows. But first I guess a little background on me. I love woodworking. Seeing a finished project that someone likes and uses is enjoyable. As I am sure most do I hate sanding and I constantly work at trying to cut down on the sanding. I work full time in IT for a large company. I am leaving at the end of the year...
