I guess I'm living and working in the wrong geographical area.  My usual scrolling hourly rate is "minimum wage".  Now if someone comes into the shop and want something done, it's $20 / hour for non-scrolling work.

Yeh, I have been told I have a "Walmart" attitude when it comes to pricing.  This is my hobby, folks,not a business.  The bucks we get covers expenses, buys more wood and equipment AND sends us on vacations each year (where we are right now).

That's my 2% of a dollar for this scrollsaw topic.

Have a great day, brothers.

I'm with you Fred. Where I live nobody will pay more than $35 for fretwork it doesn't matter how many hours you have in it.

So, as of yesterday morning I am now the market manager for the local farmer's market. I can still have a booth (my kids will man it). But now, I can gently push my agenda for quality work at real prices. :)

Cool...well I'm guessing anyway...probably will take some diplomatic negotiations.

Does your market move in-doors during the winter months? Our local one shuts down Nov 1 until Apr 1 due to the weather.

Dave,

   Ours is from May through the end of Oct. Just too cold for any produce.

Essentially the same as ours then for basically the same reason. The one in our county seat (county of ~36k+ pop.) has grown significantly the past 5-6 years and includes many crafters, WW'ers, and scrollers.

 

This past year, three small communities (<1k pop/ea) in the county have replicated their own versions. They experienced good success too and have bigger plans for 2019. All three put out requests for non-produce vendors especially in the WW'ing/crafts venue.

 

Look forward to your next season and hopefully seeing some pictures from the market season...add that to your growing list of duties.:P Or you can delegate that to the kids.:lol:

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
