My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1565: Winding Down

06-02-2015 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

 I had pretty much forgotten what it was like to see my kitchen table cleared. Or the counters for that matter. It seems that it has been months that I have been working on one thing or another and although I do manage to keep things fairly neat, there have been miscellaneous boxes, trays and wood parts placed neatly in piles here and there throughout the house. It is part of working from home though and although we have a small place here, we are pretty good at staying organized an...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1564: Ready to SHIP!

06-01-2015 11:49 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I had a very busy, yet very productive weekend. It rained most of the time here in Nova Scotia (as it is now) so I didn't really mind at all. I never really mind working though, as I really do love my job. I worked on getting the first big batch of carousel kits completed. It was a milestone for me because it brought to reality something that I have planned for and dreamed about for nearly two years. I am really proud of them. As I look at my kitchen table this morning, this is ...

Gathering Ideas #1: How to Make the Square Hinge Work

05-30-2015 09:20 PM by Jerry | 35 comments »

I recently had someone ask me why not make my hinges square since I was planing the back side of them flat. Truth is I considered it, but could not get past the problem of the hinge jamming into the box as it rotated. If you look closely at the picture below, you can see how the corner of a square hinge rotates down into the imaginary box in the picture. Anyone have any ideas?

Home Made Tools and Jigs #1: Self Centering 1/2" Dowel Drilling Jig for the Invisio - Hinge

05-29-2015 08:27 PM by Jerry | 21 comments »

Made from $12.00 worth of bronze bushings and a shaft collar. The shaft collar has a set screw that holds a 1/8” drill bit in place, so you would need to use 1/8” axles for your hinge pieces. The largest bushing has an inside diameter of 1/2”. The second bushing an outside diameter of 1/2” and an inside diameter of 3/8”. The shaft collar has an outside diameter of 3/8”, takes a 1/8” drill bit, and uses an allen set screw that takes a 1/16R...

Shop Saftey - Dust Masks #1: Why did I not wear one.

05-29-2015 02:56 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

I, as a retired person, generally fall into woodworking, scroll saw, as my past time activity. YES, I know, or should have, that shop dust and wearing some type of masks is important. But they are hot, limit breathing and are a pain. Well as someone with ironical asthma I have now landed in ER and the hospital twice this year. At this point I am still not cleared to be back in the shop. Well, now I have done a lot of reading on dust masks and respirators. Your first line of defense is to l...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1563: "The Zone"

05-29-2015 11:30 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I had an amazingly productive day yesterday! It was one of those days that went somewhat like this:     - I had a plan     - I set a goal     - I stayed FOCUSED     - I worked     - I got the job DONE! It isn't that I don't always TRY to work like this. But most of us know that many days, we make plans to accomplish things and even with our best efforts, sometimes life just gets in the way. It happens to m...

Starting to build my woodworking skills, first project progress.

05-28-2015 07:56 PM by fnhguy | 4 comments »

I thought I would take some time to share the progress so far on my first “real” project and the one that’s really gotten me hooked on woodworking. I’ve always had an interest for making things and working with my hands and always have had a strong DIY attitude. There’s something about the satisfaction one gets when they have a task in hand and you deal with it on your own even if it’s out of your comfort zone. You get to learn new things along the way a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1562: Watermarks

05-28-2015 11:07 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am going to be cutting kits the next couple of days, and I am sure that it isn't what I would call 'fascinating' blog material. I will certainly keep you updated, but today I am going to talk about something else that may be helpful to some of you that read.I have many friends and readers who are fellow designers in both the painting as well as the woodworking industry. Many of them use social media sites such as Facebook and Pinterest to  promote their designs and reach ne...
