  • Back from the Fair

    Whew 4 days from 9 am to 9 pm but it was fun.
    We had lots of visitors. I followed Sue's lead and gave out some magazine too.
    We had the Saw Aces video which was recieved well the first night. Unfortunately during the night the TV VCR grew legs and walked away, along with the video
    It is a great video and good for clubs or any organization to introduce scrolling.

    I cut up a storm and am attaching pics.
    There will be a few more pics with more discriptions.

    more from the fair

    At the fair my friend and mentor Roy Brown is standing behind the president of the BC WOODEN TOYMAKERS SOCIETY Robert Prinse.

    We gave out Fox Chapel book catalogs and Toymakers Pamphlets to everyone we could.

    A friends seven year old son Isaac is cutting with me. It is the first time he has used a saw and he cut out a llama. I held the wood down and he guided it.

    I was fortunate enough to try Mr Browns brand new Excaliber, and he was fortunate enough to try my Ryobi, which he loved by the way.

      It looks as if you had an enjoyable time and made some new friends . Those pieces you cut should inspire a few new scrollers too.

      Sorry to hear about the video - there's some rotten people around.

            It was great. I scrolled with 5 youngsters all together. I just didn't advertise it or the line up would be out the door.

            Key points of interest for the scrollers were blade selection and where do you find free wood

            I should have taken items to sell. Many people wanted to buy but that isn't the reason we were there.

            I think I will have to order 3 gross of blades since there is no source locally. That is an item I could have sold out of.

            Several people said they were inspired enough to dust off their saws, a few wanted a new hobby and may buy saws. I volunteered to help them select.

            Next year I do not think I will take two days off work to start the fair off. That is just a little too costly. I will try and get some of the retired toymakers to man the booth till I get off work.

                Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

                Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying....

                will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
