  • Sold my first piece

    I think I want to cry.

    I made Bubbles, the cow gumball machine. The pattern was on the back of the Meisel flyer (I think) I got a couple of months ago. I brought her to work, just because I thought she would be fun to have on my desk. Well, one of the women I work with wanted her for her nephew's birthday tomorrow. I would have just made her another one, but didn't really have the time. So I sold her Bubbles.

    Now I have an order for another one. It's a great feeling to sell something, but I had a real hard time deciding. I know I could just make another one for myself, but it's still hard, especially with it being the first one.

    Thanks for listening while I babble.

      CONGRATS! Isn't it exciting when someone actually thinks you do work good enough they want to buy it? To me that's the highest form of compliment one can receive!! Who knows, you may have a new career making gumball machines! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

          Idiot me forgot to take a picture of the finished cow. I've got pics of it before I painted it. I'm going to ask if the person who bought it would please take a pic for me, so I can add it to my portfolio at home.

          I need to get a few posted, it's just so SLOW with dial-up at home. It's awful. One of these days I'll get around to posting them. That's the only drawback I can find to living in the country, no DSL.

            It's nice to know others think our work is good enough to be worth giving as a gift to a loved one

              Hi Kelly
              It is always nice when people like your work enough to buy it. I had a few people in the past think that my work was lazer cut.

                A family friends father passed away and he was an avid bird carver. So my nephew is helping the family sell some of his tools. I bought this air cleaner and will b uy most of his carving knives and burrs. And no that is not my workshop! Not even close. ...

                I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
