So I asked her about what I call, “Old Dead Guys” and listed off a few of them.AthenasiusAugustineJohn CalvinJonathan EdwardsJohn BunyanJohn OwenJoseph CarylBB WarfieldBlaise PascalAlbert BarnesMartin Lloyd-JonesJohn GillCharles Spurgeonand a few others that I could remember in the moment, leaving many aside due to severe brai...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1406: More New Things - Time for a Little Break

09-19-2014 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was another full and busy day.  Not only did we finish updating our site, but I finished creating my pattern packet as well for the SLDP225 MUD Witches Boots.  It may sound silly to many, but I am really proud of not only the design, but also the pattern packet itself. I truly feel it was one of my best efforts and was quite an accomplishment for me to make. It isn't that the project is particularly difficult. As a matter of fact, I believe it is very easy. But...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1405: Site (almost!) Updated

09-18-2014 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a crazy/busy day, with a few unexpected twists.  Those of you who read regularly know how much I love my three beautiful cats (Richard, Pancakes and Coco) and how much they are part of my everyday life. Like most pet owners, I consider them my 'fur babies' and they are wonderfully special to me.Lately though, Coco (my beautiful black long-haired girl) has been feeling under the weather. She has been vomiting more than usual (long haired cats in the autu...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1404: Still Writing Instructions

09-16-2014 11:20 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had quite a busy day yesterday. It was one of those days when I had planned to have a quiet day of writing instructions for my two latest designs so that we can do a site update tomorrow (Wednesday).  It has been a fabulous week. I truly can't believe how nice things are going. It seems that all the 'feelers' that I put out in the past several months and all the seeds that I have planted are really beginning to pay off. And there are many more things that I have planned as ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1403: A Lesson

09-15-2014 11:10 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Today's blog post may be a little different than what I normally write. A couple of things occurred this weekend that made me think a little (sometimes a dangerous thing!) and I spent some time pondering things and I feel that my conclusions may be worth sharing. The first incident occurred on Saturday. I received a hateful, nasty, spiteful letter from someone who was angry at me for not leaving the free patterns up on my site for infinity. Apparently she had found some old links tha...

Japanese Tools #4: More things happened this weekend.

09-14-2014 05:49 PM by CreekOne | 1 comment »

I have this Chouna, it was all black/brown and after about a day in citric acid and a lot of scrubbing every hour, I can now see the steel in some places, It also revealed a stamp and some faint etching that became stronger with time. I have also had the blades from my two Nagadai-ganna in citric acid to remove ages of rust.Anyone know anything about this stamp? The other one still in the acid…This one has stamps on the front and the back, both have stamps on the laminated chip br...

Japanese Tools #3: Saw fixing weekend

09-14-2014 05:33 PM by CreekOne | 0 comments »

So, I have these saws. These are old, how old, I don’t know but they are handmade, most likely industrially handmade. They have this nice engraved markings on them, not like the modern stamps, more like hand stitched engravings. You can also see some marks where the steel was welded to make the saw blade. So, how to get some old, dirty, rusty, dull saws in working order? First step was a nice bath of citric acid, this removed most of the dirt and rust. I don’t have any...
