          I am surprised that there is anything left!. I don't know where you live but your prices are rather low for what you are selling. Actually I do know where you live as I sent you a clock hardware kit.

            Beautiful work. I agree with Rolf on the pricing, but I don’t know where you live. That being said, the Birdseye maple owl would have been $30+ on our table. Where did you get the pattern for that?

              Where I live is a hot dog and bean area so I have to price to move merch.

              If I were to have a place in say Amherst/Northampton or say Cape Cod or Newport yes my prices would probably be double or more and so would be the cost of selling., but you have to know your market.

              The owls I modified from a pattern is Scroll Saw Magazine. They were a layered project, so I copied the pattern, them adjusted it to be suitable for Intarsia. Took a little trial and error. I sometimes do that off of a picture as well to make my own custom pattern(s).

              ps. The maple didn't cost me anything as I have a furniture make friend that often gives me a few boxes of his cutoffs . Whatever I can't use, ends up as kindling for the fire pit.

                  Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.

                  by Linda In Phoenix
                  I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
