  • Free Beer & Booze

    Over the past year I have been on a quest to raise $4,680.00 with my scroll saw work, to pay for 7.2 weeks of free camp at our states Lions Club Handicapped Camp since I will be 72 this next month. I did reach the goal.
    Now the rest of the story;

    In order to achieve that target I not only had to do over 57 shows but I kept records of my daily Bar-Hopping activities.
    I normally hit 3 local bars each eve and always take some of my scroll work with me.
    My records show that I spend around $300 a month at the bars but sell over $450 of work. Plus get referals.

    The most profetable bar sales were items I buy for 99 cents, add some scroll work and then sell for $8 to $30.

    See my album.

    Thought I would share this 'research'.

        Greetings from central Indiana. Most of the good stuff I know about scrolling, I learned here. The rest was from fixing mistakes or doing stuff again because I didn't pay attention to what I read here.
        So, ask your questions and post your photos.
