    Default First photo v carve projects

    These are some photo V carves projects I just finished for Christmas gifts. Now hopefully I can sell some now! These things are addictive!

    Lookin' good

    Do you like the crosshatch pattern? I usually just do a 45 deg, but don't criss-cross them.

    Well, I have only done these three and I think these turned out great. I did a test piece in MDF with only one pass and I thought it was ok. The photo really doesn't do them justice, they look even better in person. I personally prefer the maple over the cherry. The maple one just blew me away when I stained it, it just burst into life! Btw, does anyone have a clue what these should sell for? I am planning to move more toward products like this and get away from cabinets.

    Pricing is all subjective. 'Crafts' sell better in middle America than they do on the Coasts. Some of the things people show on here would never sell in my neck of the woods because people just aren't into the whole country motif.

    Play around with different scenes, give one or two to the wife to show off to her friends or at work etc. The women are good judges of what is appealing & how much they would pay for it. Not many men are going to buy these types of things, unless they are for a woman!

    Try it on & see how it works. You never know where it will take you.

    Default Photo Carve

    Hi Guys: Nice work Kip. I just picked up photo carve recently. Have not tried it yet. Can you folks suggest woods that work well with it, solid woods or plywoods etc. Also, what types of bits work well also. Thanks. Joe

    In our neck of the very rural left coast, things that look too mechanical (computer/machine generated) don't sell well and if they do sell they don't go for much. The more 'hand done' look to them the easier to sell and the higher the prices. Things like photo based products are really hard sell. Rough cut 3d stuff with a slight going over with a wood chisel sell very well. Just a thought from rural Oregon. Russ

    Thanks jack, I tried that unsuccessfully on my iPhone. Apparently you can't post photos from an iPad and it's limited on the iPhone. I don't often get the chance to web surf on the PC.
