  • Welcome Sign

    Here's my newest completed project. I can't remember where I got the pattern from to give credit to him/her for it. Was thinking of putting it up for sale (not the pattern, just the completed sign) but can't decide on a price. Any ideas? Thanks for looking.

    That is sick Everett. Nice and Clean. Price, well, how long did it take you, and what are you thinking it is worth ?

      nicely done EVERETT,
      pricing is a hard decision too make,take into account,materiel cost, time,etc,
      i find it hard for non scrollers too understand costs when people dont realiise the effort that goes into some items,
      not doing much
      and busy doing it

      having fun making sawdust.

        Well done! What are the dimensions and how much time do you have invested in it?

          Thank you for your comments. It is 15" wide by 6" high. I have about 9-10 hours put into it. Still slow since I've only been scrolling for about 3 weeks. I was thinking maybe $60 or $70, but it could be that I think it is worth more than it actually is.

            That's a nice piece. The first rule of thumb on pricing: The more you pay . . . . the more it's worth. I think your thinking is in the right direction.

              Top marks for your Welcome Sign. If you were living here in South Australia I would offer you a buying price of buying price of round the $75. - $85. range, which I consider that type of Scroll Sawn Sign to be worth, as I am also a Wooden Signs Designer, and Maker, although I mainly use a couple of Routers, I occasionally do Scroll Sawn Signs too,- What annoys me the most are some people who upon seeing my work, comment, " You get that made in China don't you, and just put your label on the back " Although one day I received, what I consider to be," Poetic Justice. " One regular local couple walked into my workshop, just as I had begun cutting out a Sign on my Hegner, - His jaw," dropped," and he stood there staring at me for several minutes, then commented, " OH,- You really do make them !! " To which I replied, " Yes,- I didn't buy this machinery to look at !! " He, & his wife both bolted out of my workshop,- have'nt been back since,- Don't know why ?? Can't possibly work out why ?? Can't possibly !!!!!!

                I'm glad that I in the right ballpark on price and not being way too high. My sister-in-laws brother asked if I was using a CNC machine. I think I may have to take that as a complement.
                I'm thinking that so much junk being mass produced in China is giving arts and crafts people a lower reputation. I hope that sounded right.

                  by tgiro01
                  With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

                  I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

                  I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

                  But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

                  +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

                  It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
