Selling Your Crafts & Art on the Internet: My new Strategy with Crosslinked Lumberjocks & Etsy.com

01-17-2009 02:22 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 30 comments »

There is an ongoing debate about whether Lumberjocks should be the focus of a marketing plan by professional woodworkers. There are quite a few professionals on this site now, all of us trying to make a living. I define “professional” as someone that makes all, or most of their income from their woodworking and craft work. Selling something once in a while from your hobby work really has nothing in common with “having” to sell something every day to buy food and s...

The Great Box Sale Adventure #3: I Didn't want to Do it...

08-25-2015 04:30 PM by maplerock | 15 comments »

My last (and only) attempt at a Craft/Art show was not a huge success. Other than good company and a festive atmosphere, it was a lot of work for little sales. You guys all know that woodworking is an expensive hobby (or business for you talented guys) and if you don’t make some money, you are limited in what you can do (or what the wife will allow you to do.) I have been placing a few boxes in boutiques and galleries instead of at shows. I’ve had the same lackluster resul...

Going Pro Part 2: Are you a Pioneer? You'll Need that Spirit.

10-05-2007 04:21 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 11 comments »

Going full time at working with your woodworking tools is quite a daunting task. It was, and still is for me. I get quite a few emails, visitors, and phone calls from other folks, so I know it is daunting for everyone that considers it. I try to be honest with them, about the cost and benefits. I have given out some bits and pieces of my “Pioneering Spirit” sermon over the past months to various individuals, but never all in one place before. So, I decided this morning to...

Casket Interior and Delivery

06-01-2007 12:01 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 5 comments »

—————————————— UPDATE 3-28-2012:After Posting my Casket Stories and Photos, I have been overwhelmed by the response from readers. There is quite a thread of folks wanting to help in their funeral plans by building their own casket, or building one for a close friend or family member. All of this internet attention lead me to a teaching invitation at the John Campbell Folk School in the summer of 2011 on t...

Farmer's Market Results #1: Low traffic, but two items sold.

07-05-2009 01:42 AM by James | 16 comments »

Some people have expressed interest on how much items go for and how to price your projects. I don’t know much about this, but I hooked up with my local farmer’s market and set up some of my projects for sale. It was rather chilly for a summer day here, and not many people turned out, but in 4 hours I did manage to sell two things. Also I had a lot of people picking up my work and feeling them, opening them, and lots of great comments on workmanship wood choices etc. I learned a l...

Discount!

11-05-2009 01:22 AM by OregonBurls | 5 comments »

Some of you have asked if I would give a discount to the Lumber Jocks community. The answer is Yes. I have been adding new products but I don’ t have much on yet. Also I will be adding an artist corner there so you guys can sell your produces for free. I will let you know when I get that module up. If you go to my website and purchase something in the wood department at the check out there will be a coupon window. Just type in LJ. That will give you an automatic 10% off your entire p...

Cool deals #2: Finding the sales on Amazon

07-01-2008 04:08 PM by flink | 0 comments »

Hi, All of us probably checkout the Friday sales at the Tool Bin. But did you know that Amazon has an RSS feed that has super deals? Only problem is that it is an “Everything” feed. I came across a page today that describes how to take the Amazon rss feed and then use a free service from Feed Sifter to filter the Amazon feed for the stuff you want. All you need to do is paste in the URL in the Amazon rss feed and then enter some filter terms “tool, power” “...

14 inch Ridgid BS

02-08-2010 02:30 AM by JoeButler | 3 comments »

Well, I picked one of these up today from HD. $184.50 plus tax. Looks like they are clearing them out. Wonder if that long rumored new BS from Ridgid is about to finally show up? Sales person said they had 3 yesterday morning. I got the last one this morning. I left straight from there and headed over to Rockler. Picked up a 1/8 inch Olson blade. Took me the rest of the evening, but I got it up and running. Doesn’t appear to be too bad. A little vibration, but not as bad a...

Anyone want Cedar Wood?

06-21-2007 11:00 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 2 comments »

The other day I posted a couple of projects where I used some reddish-white wood, that we around here call “Cedar.” I don’t know what the species name is, some say Western Red, some Say Eastern Red, so I don’t know for sure. I received enough interest on the wood type from commenters to the project and emails,, that I did some checking around, and I found a local source for this red/white cedar wood with the aromatic smell if anyone is interested in it. It would c...
