My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #985: Progressing . . .

03-17-2013 11:17 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am just stopping by quickly today to say good day to you all. I spent the day yesterday working on the painted version(s) of my little bunnies. As with most things, the progress that I am making is slower than I had anticipated. There is a lot to think about and I am trying to filter my thought process to one step/version at a time. I find that the more I teach through my patterns the more detailed I want to be. I suppose that this comes from the experiences I have had with customer...

Henry Miller 1940's Nelson Platform inspired redwood bench

06-16-2014 09:24 AM by Marty Backe | 3 comments »

This is a 15 foot long bench made from redwood. It’s inspired from Henry Miller’s 1940’s Nelson Platform bench. I purchased six ‘select’ redwood 2×6’s from Lowes for ~$60, and milled it into a bunch of 1-3/8”x3/4”x8’ slats. Butt gluing them together, reinforced with dominos, gave me the 16 foot long pieces that I need to make the 15 foot long bench. It was a long process of gluing everything together. ...

Various Projects #4: Mom's Bookcase Part 1: Planning

12-09-2008 12:27 PM by Tomcat1066 | 3 comments »

Recently, my mother almost broke her foot while trying to put together one of those cheap partical board bookcases that Big Lots sells. She called me after the drop (she dropped it on her foot somehow) and I finished the job up. However, she still has one that hasn’t been put together and she’s in dire need of a bookcase. So…I’m going to build one. The problem is, I’m having trouble finding plans for one. Here’s what I’m thinking, and I figured...

rough lumber

07-28-2009 04:09 PM by bobbo1963 | 3 comments »

I know have all the lumber that I need for the project and more than enough wood. The question I have is when dealing with ten year old air dried wood, is thier a preffered time of the year to build with it? Should I bring the wood indoors? Should moisture be a concern? I will not have any panels to deal with and the widest I am going to have is about ten inches. I am building a cradle.

Making a Pen...A Decal Pen...

03-08-2010 02:20 AM by grub32 | 3 comments »

I just accidentally deleted my blog entry so lets try this again… These are pens that I made for a few of friends for their Businesses. I used testors decal paper like Kerux has so eloquently portrayed. I should probably mention that these were gifts. I did not charge for them. There is a subsequent video that I created to show how I make pens from start to finish, including putting the decal on. I am only going to link the first one, because there are 5. If you like want t...

006: pallet wood cutting board #2: cuts and glue-ups

03-30-2010 11:02 AM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

I’ve renamed my 5 preexisting project series from “project: whatever” to “00n: whatever” where n is the number of the set of posts in order. E.g. instead of “project: a rolling base for my planer,” that was the second project series I made, so now it’s “002: a rolling base for my planer.” The projects were starting to scatter in my series list, and I’d have a few series listed at the top in the drop-down for new posts, then an ...

Strange insight and inspiration

06-06-2010 05:24 AM by sawblade1 | 3 comments »

Good evening Lumberjocks, This week nothing happened much around the shop spent mostly doing house work after the painters, so this week in my spare time I called several banks and tried to get around $ 8,500.00 well by Wednesday I had been told no more times than a disobedient puppy dog. Well ? Wednesday night the look on my face must not have been a good one as my partner asked what was wrong ? I told him I didn’t want to talk about it OK he said but I know it’s bothering y...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #32: Finishing Up Catalog Submissions

07-05-2010 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Ah! One of my favorite days of the week! Fresh start. Fresh list of things to do. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I wish there were a place for personal pictures here because I would love to see pictures of where many of my buddies live. I love this site because of the diversity of the people here. I would love to see the places that others call ‘home’ and what their surroundings are like. I had to laugh yesterday because my friend who got his email stolen wrote me ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #148: Only Eight Weeks Until Christmas . . . (YIKES!)

10-29-2010 01:37 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Were you all as horrified as I was when you read that statement? I was doing my morning mail and cruising around my facebook to see what my friends were up to this morning and those words jumped out at me from someone’s post. I don’t know about you all, but it is time to kick into high gear for me and really get moving on making my list and getting some stuff done. As many of you have witnessed, I have been working on a couple of additional skating pond sets which are both to...
