My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1130: Some Time Away

09-14-2013 08:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

I am going to take a couple of days away from posting. Yesterday, my partner Keith’s dad lost his battle with cancer. Artie was a wonderful and kind man who was always loving and supportive and treated me like one of the family from the first time I met him. It has been difficult these past several months to see him struggle, and I am comforted in knowing that he is no longer suffering. I don’t know what else to say except that I love him dearly and I will miss him. ...

I needed to do something to try and work my way out of the funk I was in..I was in a dark and scary place for a while..I did what every red blooded wood worker would do.. I made something.. Yes sir, I made a nice Coffin plane.. took me a few days to complete, gave me some much needed tool time, time for reflection, and direction, and sanding..and more sanding… quiet time, and sanding.. Through all this time of dust and dispare, I came to realize that most of what was bothering me was be...

Never happening

11-16-2013 10:28 PM by Rick M. | 5 comments »

[edit: decided that as an ex-smoker, I did not want to do this.] Normally one would use well seasoned wood but I have these pear offcuts and decided to turn them green, dry, then touch up as necessary. Started by making and printing a design for a poker style pipe. Cut down a block, glued on the pattern and mounting on lathe. I really had no idea how big it should be so I found a one for sale and copied the measurements. Seems fairly hefty to me but what the heck do I know, never owned ...

Wooden Square

01-26-2014 05:54 PM by chadgr | 6 comments »

This video is the first in my posting and it explains how I went about building a wooden square, woods used are maple, oak, and sapele. For diy squares they don’t do a bad job, they are almost perfect and they have a 300mm bar so over that distance you expect a small amount of deflection. Plans are available please feel free toenail me at

New member, new shop #3: Miter saw bench, lumber rack

03-19-2014 12:49 AM by gamygeezer | 2 comments »

I finished the miter saw bench, then built the lumber rack from the WWMM collection. I should have made the rack six feet wide instead of the four foot in the plan. The miter saw bench is not much to look at, but provides a lot of handy storage in the pull-out shelves. The saw itself is nearly 20 years old and is not a slider, so doesn’t use much actual table space. I did put on a zero clearance fence and top. There is plenty of room behind the saw for dust collection, when I fig...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1284: Bunnies and Flowers and Beads . . . Oh My!

04-04-2014 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I don’t know why, but I think the long, cold winter has me longing for spring. Today is the first day of the week that the sun is shining, and there is not a cloud in the sky. While there is still a touch of frost on the grass, I find myself being grateful for each day that passes with no snow. It may seem funny to be thinking like that in April, but for most people this year has been particularly brutal. I personally love the snow, but I think that even I have had my fill and am ...
