Tom if you saw my sewing, crochet, and knitting stuff (and supplies) that has yet to be moved, you would thank your wife for being controlled in her crafting :lol: This doesn't include the wood crafts (other than the sign tools and equipment) the printed patterns, and other crafting items that need to be brought home... the list goes on n' on n' on...My wife's art and sewing have expanded into 3 areas so far.
Thank you for the kind words, Jonathan. In my area, we have white wood, and #1 or #2 Pine (I forget the actual 'grade' number). I've used white wood (lower grade of pine) to keep my prices low on my signs. But this year, the white wood was literally junk, and I had a hard time getting pieces that had good markings, or even straight for that matter, so I upgraded to the "better pine" (smoother, nicer looking, good markings) so I could get some good pieces. Of course, that meant raising my prices a little, but the results have proven to be worth it.Hello Barb,
That is some beautiful work! I really like the one that looks like a log... You said that you use a "better pine" and makes the "oak" stand out? Can you clarify or elaborate a little? Again, really great work. After seeing all the signs on here, I guess I will have to make one for myself. Just hope to get them to look as good as yours!!!!
