« Part 55: Nativity Scrollsaw Patterns Part 56 of ScrollSaw Information and Resources series Part 57: ESTY Pricing Decision »

On Friday and Saturday I was a vendor at a local craft show. I got many of the usual “off the wall questions” but some of them got me to thinking.

I cut many of Shelia Landry’s (and Keith’s) candle tray patterns and several people ask if they were trivets. Well some of them, printed at about 75%, make a great size trivet. So I think I will start offering some like that.

Also, on a separate note, I cut some of the 3 dimensional patterns from Sue Mey and Steve Good, to name a few, so why not do a glue up like the pen turners. Take different colors of thin wood and glue then together to make the blank for cutting the 3D pattern.

I think both of these will work great in different areas. Just using some of my gray matter while it still is working.

Those are great ideas. I look forward to seeing how the 3D multi colored projects turn out.

Sounds like you had a good turn out at your show, it gave you some new insight. I too am looking forward to seeing your 3d multi-colored projects.
