Just Retired and Learning to Scroll - Can I use your drawings to earn some play money

by Ken
(Newington Ct USA)

Dear Mr. Slattery - I just retired last August and have started making whirligigs using my scroll saw. My wife is an artist (pet portraits) and occasionally enters art shows here in New England (1 or 2 per year). I wanted to earn some play money to support my whirligig hobby and was wondering if I could use some of your drawings to sell a few of these puzzles when she attends these shows.

Sincerely Ken

Hi Ken,

Thanks for asking for permission. I should put a note on the plans to the effect that people can sell the stuff they make using my plans.

I would be pleased if you could share a few photos of anything you have made, even if it does not involve my plans.

I'm sure it will inspire many people to make something as well.

Good luck and I wish you and your wife a long and happy retirement.
