  • Craft Shows/Bazzars

    Any one else do craft shows? I used to, my last one was waaay back in 1998. Back then I did a lot of scroll saw work and tried to sell what I made at craft shows. Never sold one piece, don't know why, I have gotten plenty of compliments on the work I gave away since then. I believe my prices were reasonable. What really got to me was the number of times people wwould say that what I had for sale was good, but not good enough for them to buy. I remember one husband telling his wife that he could make what she was looking at. Right.

    So now I just give everything away, or I do woodworking on demand, I have fun making stuff and I love to see people enjoy my work.

    When you hear that BS line ask them what kind of saw they have and why don't you have a booth? Then look him in the eye and raise the price.

      Improvisation is certainly acceptable, but some patterns are less forgiving than others. As someone else already said, learn to follow the lines as closely as possible. If you wander from the pattern lines, it is usually best if it is intentional. It takes some time and practice, so don't get too...

      The lines matter if you are making a multi-layer project if you need things to line up, otherwise it's artist's interpretation.
