    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.

        First, let me say those are beautiful! Second, I can tell you that on the Facebook laser forums those people have been hunting for sources on cutting and charcuterie boards to laser engrave various personalizations onto. Some are willing to pay for quality and the finished pieces show it. Others...

        A custom order for the "Wedding Rings" designer unknown. I used 1/2" solid Cherry and cut on the Pegas Scroll Saw using Pegas #1 and #3 MGT blades. After sanding with a Mac Mop sprayed with 2 coats MinWax Lacquer Clear Gloss sanding between coats. Comments welcome.

        If you are talking about their microlux, that is the same as the little proxxon saw, and it is the absolute worse scrollsaw I've ever used. They also have a 16" (the saw rebranded a thousand times) which is also a distant second in the running for worst designed saws ever.
