Hello!

Hi my dad has been doing scroll saw woodworking for years, he is looking to sell his projects and neither of us know where to start. We were thinking Ebay but we don't know if that's the right option. Any suggestions? Thanks

I think eBay has a very high comission rate all in all, especially if you accept payment through paypal. They both want their moneys worth out of you!

It's hard to find a market for that sort of thing, I know a woman here who does it and she finds it very hard to make a living doing it but she makes a fortune at woodworking shows and things like that! Why not give that a try??

Yea the ebay fees will kill you. He would be working to pay ebay fees. Craigslist would be better but you might get better exposure at a flea market.

I would think scroll work might be largely custom? and or the products may be too large to ship...

craigslist and pintrest are my defacto answers not knowing the specific kind of products he produces.
