        OOh they're great, the detail is fabulous! I couldn't work out the name of the last one for a minute, Sealyham, hope you don't me saying it's back to front in the photo, brilliant though. I love the movement you've got in the greyhound, excellent =)

          Beutiful work Mal and its a great idea to use offcuts and I use offcuts down to very small pieces for a whole range of products. Also in the eyes of the public it makes you look more sustainalble and environmentally friendly which counts for a lot these days.

              Lovely work. I use a lot of offcuts and recycled wood as well. Old furniture on Freecycle can be a good source for smaller pieces. For you things like old tables etc could be a good source of decent flat wood. I use them for smaller items and dolls furniture. Amazing what little you need to throw maway . I presume that this is all scroll work?

                              Hi Mal,

                              I do have a shop on Ebay and it was the best move i ever made. You do have to take into account the fee's. Ebay's commission, listing fees, Paypal comission all in all i allow 20%. You will also need to be registered as a business on Ebay as you will be selling for profit and the taxman will also want a share.

                              Saying that, your prices are very low and you can easily add enough to cover your costs. Ebay is a gamble and it will cost you even if you sell nothing. You can join Ebay for free and have a look round. Look for categories that you think will work best for your work. There is also a community forum and the members there are good for advice, some will take the mick, but on the whole the advice is good.

                              You can use auctions or buy it now. Auctions are fine as long as you start the item on the price you actually want. Don't be tempted to start at 0.99p in the hope you will get more. If the item sells at 0.99p then that's all you will get. I prefer buy it now and good till cancelled. This way you list your item at a fixed price until it sells. You can also list more than one item using buy it now as long as the item is exactly the same and this will not cost you any extra.

                              Hope that helps
