My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1584: Scrolling Binge

07-03-2015 11:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

One good thing about doing lots of types of creative crafts is that every time I get to do something else, it is new and fresh to me and I am excited about it. I love painting and I love the recent needle artwork that I have been attempting, but I also love creating cool wood things on the scroll saw. There is something that is so calming and peaceful about following a line with a tiny blade to create 'graceful wood'. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with everything that is g...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1583: Now for Something Completely Different

07-02-2015 12:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday was a busy day. I like that. I felt as if I was getting back on track and really accomplishing something. I didn't get to do the final photos of the new five candle tray patterns, but I did work on the three additional ornament sets that I will also be including in the next site update. (We are thinking either Sunday or Monday we will send out a newsletter.)  That will mean that I will have a total of eight new scroll saw patterns to post. It will feel really good for me to...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1582: Aftermath

07-01-2015 11:11 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Yesterday wasn't what I would call the 'best' of days. While I always try to be positive and put a positive spin on things, sometimes it doesn't work out that way. Actually, it was Monday that was the difficult day, but yesterday was more of the aftermath of dealing with a very stressful situation and for the most  part, I was pretty useless. Those who know me know that isn't my usual way. I always try to rise above the things that are bothering me. I am not...

Group build for Charity

06-30-2015 04:54 PM by Christian Holihan | 0 comments »

The non-profit I started is getting ready to build our 2nd project. The concept behind Artisan Care is to create a chance for woodworkers of all levels to come together to learn and make something greater together than they could on their own, then give it away. Our first project went really well and now we are moving toward build number 2! This table will be delivered to a elderly couple raising their granddaughters in Fairview, TN. Their house was recently fully renovated and is n...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1581: . . . and Then There Were FIVE!

06-30-2015 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I stayed quite busy yesterday, doing one of the things that I love to do. I really love so many of my creative aspects, and switching from one to the other back and forth always seems to keep me freshly excited about every one of them. Yesterday I spent the day at the saw. I had my headphones on and I was into a 'classical' mood. I got lost listening to my three favorite composers – Rachmoninoff, Beethovan and Mozart. It made a good thing even better. Before long, the three...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1580: Lots of Fretwork!

06-29-2015 11:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

One of the things that I like best about what I do is the great variety of ways I am able to create. As with most of you, the more I look and discover, the more I want to expand my 'crafting arsenal'. I find it very rare to meet people that only dapple in ONE type of creating. Most like to do many. I am often asked how I keep coming up with fresh ideas. After over 20 years of doing this for a living, it seems that I never run out of new things to do. There are times when I feel a...

Mini trim planes #1: More plane inspiration from Mads

06-27-2015 06:26 AM by icemanhank | 0 comments »

My latest tools are these tiny trim planes. Again thanks Mads Felding for the inspiration.They are made from Jarrah and a really lovely figured piece of Banksia; all wood came from the scrap bin. I made two to use up all the timber.The blade is cut from an old 2nd hand Stanley plane using a Dremel. I still have to make another blade, insert the brass pin and design a wedge.I will post pics of the finished articles as soon as I have them finished.

What I learned Making Tongue Drums

06-26-2015 08:05 PM by GnarlyErik | 7 comments »

Thanks for your interest in the tongue drums - I apologize but I did not keep precise dimensions for my tongue drums. I made about six in total, mostly as experiments to discover how the various materials and sizes worked. I made some with red oak sound boards and pine sides, one with a mahogany board and oak sides, one with a hard maple and etc. I gave all but this one of away so no longer have them around to measure, but the sound boards on all of them were of a similar size. I have ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1579: Day Trip

06-26-2015 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Yesterday was a beautiful day. The perfect day to just take off and put the top down on the car and drive. The night before, we made the decision to take the day off. After the long and harsh winter, the idea of getting out in the sun sounded wonderful. It truly was. Both Keith and I are always busy. I think most people who own and run their own businesses are that way. There is a misconception that by owning your own business and being your own boss, you get lots of time to do what you ...
