My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #519: Writing Pattern Packets and 'Just Thinking'

11-11-2011 01:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post isn’t going to be very exciting, I am afraid. I spent pretty much of yesterday working on the patterns for the new ornaments. I took ‘good’ pictures of each individually and then in the designated sets and I have to work a bit on those photographs before integrating them into the pattern packets. I also picked through the line work and made everything just right for both the small ornament sizes and the plaque sized designs. I hope to finish up the ins...

carving "Thunderbolt" #5: saddle completed and starting to get a head

01-26-2011 05:25 PM by mpounders | 10 comments »

Finished the simple details on the saddle and have the horn stuck in place temporarily. It may need to be cut down a bit more. I would normally do the stirrups, but you can’t see many saddle details when the rider is mounted. I used a stoning technique on the cowboy’s chaps to try and give the effect of angora or goat-skin chaps….may need to do it a bit heavier. “Stoning” is a process of using a dremel or other rotary tool with an abrasive wheel or cyl...

Look for projects to be posted soon for the newest addition to my ...

Things that just happen, break. #1: If I touch it, will it break?

08-05-2007 02:13 AM by Kirk | 4 comments »

After building the workbench I ended up with a 3/16” dip on one of the long sides. Being a designer in the auto manufacturing world, I thought I need something that I could us my router to hover over the surface and take off that amount. That would make it flat. But what kind of a machine would I have to build? I thought about barn door hangers and its tracks. But that I didn’t feel comfortable. I even thought about using ¼” wall 3” square tubing. But that would be more money t...

Upper Deck #2: Framing

06-29-2009 12:09 AM by Zuki | 2 comments »

Saturday I was off to Chester Dawe\Rona for some lumber for the deck. I had to pick through a whole bunch to find some decent stuff. I later remembered that they sell #2 lumber for #1 prices. I normally go to HD, but I needed long stuff and HD did not carry it. My first task was to make a base plate for the 4×4s to rest on. After 5 years the bolts sticking out of the concrete were still good. I figured the tread would be rusted. Here is the base laid in place. I ...

Projects In Progress

02-07-2011 07:58 PM by groy87 | 2 comments »

Hey everyone, I haven’t posted many projects during my time on LJ due to the fact that I am currently waiting for most of them to dry out before I finish them.

I am just going to post everything that is currently in progress and if there is any interest in a particular piece I will create a new blog with more photos and information :). Here are some of t...
