  • Fellow scrollsawer

    I went by the little consignment shop here in town and saw alot of scrollwork and those tiny little bird houses that some of you all are making. And lots of fretwork Christmas ornaments and fretwork pictures....she had one of a dragon.....for no less thatn $150.00. It is beautitful, and framed magnificiently, but if I wanted it, it would be way over my budget, but maybe not for some people. (But I'm not into dragons.)
    Anyways, I"m kind of getting an idea of how people are pricing their work around here where I live.
    The owner of the consignment shop gets 30% so they have to add that on top of what they actually want for their work. Personally I think that's kind of high, but I guess she has bills to pay, too, and needs to make some kind of profit.
    Soon as I get my saw I plan on placing some of my work there, too.
    I did NOT see any intarsia, so that might be something different I could do to place in her shop.
    I'm just so excited to get to working on something, I can hardly wait.

    Leave your card, and ask the shop owner to have the other scroller contact you. if you don't have a card leave your contact information. You may as well meet them. We can always use a new friend chances are they are a member of this forum or one of them anyway....LOL

      Hey, that's a great idea! I didn't think of that.

        Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

        Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.

        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...

        Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...
