    I am looking for the best way to market my scroll saw creations other than Craft Shows. I specialize in scroll saw pictures in frames and shelves along with other scroll saw projects. Every thing I read is about craft shows. I would like to know the best way some of you scroll sawyers attempt to sell your products. Example: who do you approach and how along with pricing. I also do wood carving and would also like to know who to approach and how. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks: JoeLow :

    This is more along the lines of what to look out for xxx

    Several years ago I put some wood burnings and scroll items in a craft shop on consignment. The shop went out of business and the owner absconded with the items. Open one day empty the next. Not enough in there to make it worthwhile to go after the ownere legally so just wrote it all off.

      Let me tell you what has worked for me.... Here in Western MD we have a local farmers market that is open all year and has a section set aside for crafters.  I set up for Nov/Dec and then again in the Spring just before Easter.  I do a lot of different scroll work from custom portraits to inspirational pieces to clocks, etc.  The nice part is I only have to give up half of each Saturday (6AM to Non) to do the market.. I have been very successful there.
      I also look for small unknown shows (local churches, etc) and have done real well there also.
      Plus I set up a website to sell my patterns and finished work that does well... the hosting company I use only cost me about $200 the first year and then only $25/yr after that and icludes the cost of my domain name (for more info email me)
      These are just a few suggestions I hope they help... just my 2 cents.

        Meanwhile, another giant palette wood airplane
        by Ennobee
        While still trying to summon the courage to finish the final version of my Gotha bomber, I got sidetracked and stumbled upon some plans from two years ago: a giant four-engined brother to my earlier Fokker Trimotor... The ultimate 1930's dieselpunk engine.

        THe plans were designed for 1/2...

        He went to his meeting last night and it was a tool swap. He came home with - Jet slow water grinder (?), new never used air brush, and a never used spray tent that exhausts to the outside and an extra tent. All for the grand total of $35....

        For you and hotshot , remember to hide notes, chicken bones or beer cans in the stud cavities for the next remodeler to find.

        I am partial to the folks who hide plastic skeletons in dead spaces under stairs, etc.

        Celtic knot-shamrock cross
        by Ennobee
        My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....
