My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1119: You Don't Have a Thing If You Ain't Got That BLING!

360 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Sometimes everything just works out how it should. I suppose that some could argue that things always work out how they are supposed to, but sometimes that isn’t how you would like. This time I was fortunate that this project was both. When I think of a project, I usually have a picture of how I want it to look in my head. Sometimes that picture is fuzzy. Sometimes it is really clear. Most of the time, during the designing process, it evolves into something else and by the time it ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1117: Amazing Grace

362 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Working with the scroll saw never ceases to amaze me. While many ‘hard core’ woodworkers tend to look at the scroll saw as a lowly lightweight tool of the woodworking industry, I can think of nothing that comes close to matching its ability to turn a clunky block of wood into something that is filled with such beauty and grace. In hearing the term “woodworking” the first that comes to mind usually isn’t the word “graceful”. But every time I use th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1114: New Design for the Magazine and Lots of Other Things

365 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today was the first day of the season that I woke up and it was still pitch dark outside. Even though I am nearly through my first cup of coffee, it still is just now barely getting light. Another sure sign that summer is weaning and autumn and winter are quickly approaching. I need to write quickly today, as the day is already full and looks as if it will be a busy one. My dear kitty Coco is having some problems and I had to call the vet last night. The problems didn’t seem emerge...

Balanced Work Bench #4: it's starting to look like something

370 days ago by Jeremiah | 1 comment »

So after my HUGE error with the leg vise (it blocked the top drawer)I moved it over and mounted it on the outside of the leg. I’m not 100% satisfied with it, so there will probably be some changes. I did my best to cover up the holes that formerly housed the leg vise’s bottom and screw.Also I put the drawer fronts on the drawers. Here is the new mounting of the leg vise on the outside of the leg. once again, i dont love it, but it will work for now.More later...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1106: Did Someone Say . . . "BLING?"

377 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

You KNOW I had to do it! I had those twelve nice plaques just staring at me from the table. I like them a lot. Sometimes with my new patterns, if I am really pleased with the results, I just keep them out a little bit and I admire them. This lasts about a week or so (Except with patterns that I really like and intend to keep – like my Polar Bear Pull Toy which I wouldn’t part with for the world!) (Just mentioning him gave me an excuse to show him! He is packed away unti...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1104: Damask Plaque Patterns are Posted on My Site

379 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Today’s post will be fairly brief. I need to get to it and write and send out the newsletter from our site today announcing the new patterns. I had a really good response from people yesterday and many are anxious to get their copies. I am really happy about this, as I also really like the new designs. I think they are both fun to cut and nice to look at once they are done. The four new patterns for the Damask Silhouette plaques are as follows: SLD434 Songbirds: SLD435 Ki...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1103: The "Perfect" Weekend

380 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

What an incredible weekend I had! It was a combination of accomplishing, relaxing, beautiful weather, good food, a Saturday night “date” and even some beach thrown in. I can think of little more that would have made it much better. It started off like any other weekend. However, the weather was absolutely supreme. It was sunny and warm, without being either too hot or humid, and it made Saturday just an all around pleasant day. Keith had to run into work for a couple of hour...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1102: Cutting, Routing and Scrolling Frames

382 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I finished all of my cutting yesterday. That was a big plus. Cutting out nine plaques of this type in under two days was an accomplishment that I was satisfied with. I had initially hoped that I would have these all oiled and finished by today, but as usual, things came up and I need to sand and oil them today. I should have better pictures tomorrow. I am pleased with these designs. While they are not really difficult, some of the motifs do present a little bit of a challenge. I think...
