My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1601: Progress!

08-05-2015 12:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Ahhhh  the sweet taste of "progress"!Like that first sip of coffee in the morning or the breathtaking beauty when the sun begins to illuminate the morning fog, it is something that sometimes causes us to just stop, take notice and enjoy.I am especially aware of positive progress in my current painting because things have been a bit of a struggle for me in creating it. Not because what I am creating is particularly difficult, but because there have been a few obstacles in place ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1555: Smaller Bites

05-19-2015 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Not everyone likes the same things. I know I am stating the obvious, but sometimes, as much as we do realize it, we forget that.I am no different. I see something I like and I find myself assuming that everyone I meet will like it as well. Be it food, a movie or even artwork or techniques. But having a partner like Keith helps keep me looking at things using realistic eyes. He and I are very opposite in our tastes and preferences. There is an old saying that 'opposites attract' and I ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1545: Carousel Benches

05-01-2015 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am going to keep this post short today, as I have lots that I need to accomplish. It seems (as always) that time is absolutely flying by. I can't believe it is already May. There were still some remnents of snow on the ground the other day and it is odd to think that in a few weeks, I (hopefully) will be able to sit at the beach. I noticed this morning though that the grass is a greener shade of brown. Little by little, the plants and critters are beginning to awaken. When I go to sleep...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1543: Main Carousel Construction DONE!

04-29-2015 12:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday was a really good day for me. A milestone even. After weeks of wracking my brain and trying to figure out the best way to build my "Scary-Go-Round" Haunted Carousel, I finally decided on trying a method and cut out the pieces and THEY WORKED! With all the woodworking and small project construction that I do on a daily basis, you would think that this would be 'easy-peasy' for me, but that really wasn't the case. If I were making this a one of a kind projec...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1540: Carousel Canopy and Stands for the Figures

04-23-2015 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I have never been really 'fast' when I am creating a new design. Whether it is the process of making one of my own creations or following the instructions of someone else, things just seem to take me a long time. Often people mention how quickly I produce new projects, and I find that rather odd. It seems that more times than not, I take quite a bit longer than I anticipate to complete anything that I am working on. I think that I can attribute the illusion of me working so quickly wi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1538: The Cast of Characters

04-17-2015 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I skipped posting yesterday because I felt there was little new that I had to show you. I know that sometimes when that happens, I find something interesting for a 'filler post', but I didn't want to take the time to think in other directions. I was on a mission. The new project that I have begun working on has consumed me. I find myself thinking about it most of the waking hours of my day, and even as I awake momentarily in the middle of the night to roll over. It has been a...

Ultimate China Cabinet #1: The Start

10-27-2014 02:08 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

Beginning of this year my wife asked if I would build her a cabinet for her china and dish collection. I think she was channeling Martha Stewart as she has several sets of 16 place settings (i.e., needed to build a super-sized china cabinet). The original objective was to have flush mounted doors with push open doors. Below is the carcass building sequence. The project uses 3/4 birch plywood and 1×4 boards with adjustable feet for the base. I used my assembly table to cut and as...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1418: Finishing Up

10-08-2014 11:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I kept myself pretty busy yesterday finishing up the new projects that I created for the site update. Today I will be writing the instructions for them and hopefully getting a newsletter out either later on tonight or early tomorrow. We have been trying to send out a newsletter every other week or so, as we feel that time frame is comfortable for our customers and is a good goal to complete our next round of designs. Now that we don't have Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine to think a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1401: Autumn is Coming . . .

09-12-2014 12:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I need to start off today by thanking all of you for the wonderful comments and responses on my witch boot project that I posted yesterday. I was really overwhelmed by the many, many kind comments and inquiries as to when the patterns and kits will be available. I plan on spending the weekend working on writing up the patterns and figuring out the cost of the kits so that I can charge a fair price that will make everyone happy. Of course, the biggest cost will be the shipping. My boots wer...

Building my miter bench

05-01-2014 08:26 PM by CooperK | 1 comment »

Two days ago I started construction of my new miter bench. It will be constructed primarily of shop grade 3/4” Birch plywood and some left over bass wood for the top supports. My original plan was to build it similar to my last bench which you can see in my shop pictures with the only difference being no bottom shelf since it will have primarily drawers in each cabinet. Now I’m contemplating weather or not to include a face frame. Funny how you think you have it all planned out u...
