  • 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.

                    Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

                    For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.
                    The laser doesn't care about grain....

                    A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
