  • Street Fair

    Our Woodworking club did the annual Thousand Oaks Street Fair last Sunday. The club paid for our booth, and had 12 members participating. I was the only scroller of the group. We had three tables set up, with no back drops for hanging. With 12 members displaying, there was not very much room to display our stuff properly. Next year, we will have two booths and I will build some backdrops to hang portraits and clocks.
    I sold 40 mini birdhouses, about 20 gift card holders, some mini clocks and a hole slew of other stuff. Altogether we sold close to $2000, with me doing the best at $550!
    I still have two other shows to do this year, so hope to do better!
    The pictures were taken before the show started, and I took the pictures, so I am not in any of them.

            Great variety and great cutting!!! The colors and choices of the woods are awesome1 Do you use all natural woods or are some of the work stained?

            Thanx for sharing and good luck with the next two shows/festivals!

                  Hey Kim, Thanks for the compliments. Yes all natural woods. The only time I use stains is on portrait backer boards. Everything pretty much gets the same finish. A 50/50 mix of boiled linseed and mineral spirits. Then when dry, Deft semi gloss spray lacquer.

                    I haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult. And I understand (from my wife's perspective) that computer apps are totally made for nerds - in her opinion. The breakdown is often between two of...

                    Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                    With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
