  • You want to do What?

    customer - buy all your baskets. But Wendy there’s 7 of them. I can count but I have a lot of gifts to give out in the next few weeks and I’d rather give them your baskets. Tell Bruce to start wrapping and bagging. Her husband comes back and asks if she made up her mind. She told him she was buying them all. He said ok, whatever you want. And that is how we ended our day early. The day’s total was 9 baskets, 2 cheese boards, one coffee mill. 2 sealife puzzles and 8 other puzzles. Back to the saw for Mothers Day.

        Great news and easy day for you Betty. Makes it easy for her too in the long run and nobody can say hey, I didn’t get a basket. I have a hubby like that, maybe why we will soon celebrate our 36th anniversary.

          Change in her plans. Here is her email I got today:


          Betty


          Your baskets are very much at home with us in Annapolis! The 7th goes to a buddy. These are in Jeff’s Annapolis home.


          My home in Baltimore also feels elevated by your beautiful work! I love them!

              That's what is called a great day in my book!
              And the follow up email just put the icing on the whole thing.

              Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                Good deal! I love those folks who walk up, point to something(s) and say, "I want that!" and hand you a credit card.

                  She is a repeat customer and buys every time we are at the market. I think I need to up my game and do one of Carole’s baskets. First time she came back she said she wanted a basket with the wood exactly like the one she bought the week before and the same size. The edge of the wood had a small section of gray, black and reddish grain. Not having any more of the wood, I did the best I could and I guess she liked it! I have an idea for a basket and will need Dave to help me with it on his program. But that’s end of May.

                    Betty, the best thing about collapsible baskets is the amazed reaction you get from someone who has never seen one. That's what started me off in woodworking, but I used a bandsaw because the community woodshop did not a have scroll saw worth using. When the band saw proved to be totally unsafe and unfixable, I lobbied for a DeWalt, and the rest is history.

                    However, the real treat is that there is virtually no gluing involved! Precision cutting, yes. Precise determination of the cutting angle, yes. Gluing and sanding--barely any! I worked out a method to use PolyDraw to get the spiral, then used Photoshop to tweak the pattern, but when that was done, I was able to create patterns relatively easily.

                    Glad you have such a big fan as a customer. Well-deserved, I'm sure!

                      Maybe I should have said bowls instead of baskets. I’ve made collapsible baskets, sometimes they sell sometimes they don’t. I pulled the pattern for the little coffee cup you made. I’m going to make that and another larger bowl. I also want reaction to pricing. I am also thinking of using Bruce’s renaissance wax as a finish. Thinking. Need to get past Mother’s Day first. And I remember all your posts about the community woodshop!

                        Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                        • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                        Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
