« Part 3: Everything Includes the Scrollsaw Part 4 of ScrollSaw Information and Resources series Part 5: The Business Side of Scrollsaw, Part 2 »

As I am now semi-retired and looking for new things to do I have thought, a lot, about using the scrollsaw to make a little money. First I think I am fairly good at the process of making things not that I don’t have lots yet to learn. I know that some of you have a business side to your woodworking and/or scrollsawing. Where possible I hace read and learned from each of you. I have, also, searched to Internet for information about “The Business Side of Craft Shows” and “Selling on the Internet”. Lots of good information out there.

Now as my list of items would be something like wooden toys (mostly cars), wooden boxes, wooned organization items (desk organizers), Christmas decor items and the like, I would ask iof anyone has ideas to share. I am open to any suggestions.

Thanks

I started a arts/crafts business and did not succeed , it was not that the public did not want my items nor was it because the prices were too high.It was simply the wrong time for me..The economy was in the dumps..no one could really afford to spend money on wood fretworks..This was true also for other arts/crafts vendors not associated with wood products…I was truly saddened when I had to abandon this venture..I had found a job that I simply LOVED and met some truly wonderful people as well….But now Im on disability and cannot go back to doing the shows again…I can still do some wood work, just not enough to get back into the shows…The main man upstairs has his reasons for this happening to me..I am not bitter or upset about his decision, it is as it is ! I truly wish I had some good news and advice on this subject….But I will say this ,just because it did not work for me, does not mean it wont for you ! Try anyway and hopefully it will be a success for you. I hope so !!

-- the dumbest question is the one you dont ask !!
