  • My Latest Project: Finished (where can we sell fretwork / scroll projects at?)



    Its a picture of me and the girlfriend (cut it out for her for her birthday...) Im just getting back into scrolling. And I really enjoy doing it... (this is my 2nd project in in about 10 years)

    this one i did right before the picture of me and her... cause i enjoy fieros...


    I've got a few more planned... Im also a relatively new member on the forum here...

    Im hoping to make some projects to sell... what pattern / designs are most popular and or sell well... And where should i go to sell them ?

    Its just something i really enjoy doing and i'd make alittle cash on the side too...

    Thanks for any help that can be given...

    Nice work Tim. As far as what sells, I think it's going to depend a lot on geographical location. Where I come from everybody is tight so it's going to take some cheap stuff to make sales. Some say they do great with ornaments and others do lousy. Elvis Presley sells good in Missouri I hear but I wouldn't even bother trying Elvis around here. Wildlife should generally pique people's interest but on my first showing people barely looked at my wild birds. They were more interested in dog and horse portraits, something they could relate to. You will probably find 100 answers here with none of them working in your area. I think it's going to be a lot of trial and error.

    Good luck.

            Ebay

            This was a while ago..
            I found some scroll saw project over on Ebay.
            the one thing that I noticed was that the pieces was getting close to their closing dates and no one had placed any bids on them..most of them had a starting bid of $7, that hardly covers the cost of the pattern and wood let alone the time it took to do the project..
            I got to thinking, that would be a great way to get some nice piece really cheap by going in at the last minute and putting in a bid...

            I think that was the day I found SSW and haven't been back since..

              I've had 5 in the past 3 years... 3 at the moment (but only the one im redoing practically everything on is worth anything...)

              But not to get too far off the topic of where scroll saw projects can be sold... Heres a few pictures of my fiero project...




              its also a work in progress... but im taking a break from it for awhile to do a few more scroll projects... and try to advertise them and sell them on the side somehow (on a website or something...)

                im looking into splitting the cost and space of a booth in a craft show nearby in october with my girlfriends grandad, actually the guy i bought my scroll saw from... also a great inspiration to me (hes recently gotten into pen turning...)

                but anyhow pray that i can get plenty of pieces done in time for the show (got 2 months)

                  I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                  Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                  He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                  We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
