  • Gingerbread House Craft Show

    Just got back from a 2 day event at my mothers church. Friday night it was real busy and I sold a fair amount of items, Saturday it was a bit slower but I still did overall very decently. Here are pics of my setup.

          Sold all the deer, all 15 of them the 1st day and another 10 today. The box is of my own design and I was selling the deer fairly cheaply at $3 each. More then anything they get folks to stop and look at the other things I have done so $3 often turns into $15 to $20 before they are done. I have an order from one lady for an additional 25 deer so they sell and do attract customers.

          The raindeer with the larger antler rack on them is unfortunatly not avialable to be given away as it is not mine it can be had though by purchasing the 3d patterns from this site.

                  What is the little red nose you have on the deer? I just ordered my set of plans. Thanks for the link. I really enjoy compound cutting Thanks Diana T.

                  Do both style of deer come in the plans? Just curious.

                    The red nose is a 5mm pompom from Micheals thast is attached with a drop of gelled superglue. The only deer model in the plans is the one with the big feet ... the other is from this link 3-D scrollsaw reindeer pattern That one is a free one.

                      Back in the corner (by the chalkboard) it looks like genie's lantern or such...or is that just my imagination!?! Can you share a closer photo of it? BTW...I really like how your sign came out and how you displayed it!

                          Kim no that was not your imagination it is an Aladin Genie type lamp.... actually an incense burner. The whole thing was cut from a 1/2 inch bamboo cutting board.

                            DW, glad I wasn't seeing things and thank you so much for sharing the photos!!! That is a great design...is it made to use 'cone' incense? Does it smoke up the lid that much?

                            BTW...after seeing all your great post about using the bamboo cutting boards I picked me up some while I was at Wally World the other day. I haven't had the opportunity to use them yet, as I just got hammered with orders for 10 boxes. Almost all of the orders are for different ones except three of them are my Book Stash Box...the most time consuming of all my boxes. Plus I got a really fun commissioned job...but I am not gonna tell yet as I am hoping to do a WIP.

                            Thanx again for all the great input, comments and tip on the bamboo cutting boards!

                            OH forgot... what blade did you use on the bamboo?

                              Kim,

                              I am not sure about how much it would smoke up the lid .. probably a fair amount but it would be easily cleaned thought about putting a thin brass plate on the lid bottom so that it was easily cleanable. As to the blade I generally use a #3 PSR on bamboo at a medium speed. I would think any blade would be good except a #7,#9 or #12 as they would be too aggressive.

                                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                                I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                                To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
