Building my miter bench

82 days ago 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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1270: The "Spice" of Life!

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

I had a very full day yesterday, but I did manage to achieve my goal of finishing up the other two versions of the Hare Herb Garden Markers pattern that will be featured in the June issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. I am very happy with the results, although it didn’t happen without hitting a couple of stumbling blocks and figuring out the processes that I used. But that is part of why I write her and part of the reason I try to offer accompanying articles when I am te...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1240: This and That

165 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I got started on a new projects yesterday. This one is going to be fun. The project is mainly geared for painters, but will be suitable for everyone. It is one that I am doing for the “Painting With Friends” group and is inspired by Terrye French. I love having the opportunity to work with Terrye on these projects because working with another really helps us think in different directions. Even though Keith is my partner, he and I don’t collaborate on designs (at least we...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1223: Color My World

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

Today’s blog will be quick and to the point. I awoke a bit early this morning and I am eager to get to work and (hopefully) finish up painting my little ballerinas. I had many requests from my painters that follow me to make the ballerina scroll saw pattern into a painting pattern. While the thought of cutting many of these little girls for production was a little bit intimidating, I feel that I am up for the challenge and didn’t need very much persuasion. It would just take a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1187: Doing Something for Myself - "Reaching for the Stars" Tree Topper

225 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As a “professional designer” and a craft person, it seems as if I am always creating things for someone else. Be it the magazine, items to sell, or gifts to others, it has been somewhat of a struggle for me to be able to justify taking some time to make some fun projects that I want to keep for myself. Especially at this time of year. But when I changed over my little “all season” tree to a Christmas theme last week, I noticed that I didn’t have any type of s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1181: FINALLY I am Back to Drawing!

231 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

After what seems like months (it really wasn’t!) I finally got back to drawing and I will be working on a new painting/wood design today. I know I have said that before recently, but “life” and a busy, growing business just got in the way. Believe me – this is not a complaint. I love being busy doing what I love to do but it seems that there are so many creative things that I like, I have difficulty finding the time to do them. Several days ago I bought an avocad...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1120: Variations on the New Halloween Ornaments

323 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Those of you who read daily know that I like to make different versions of projects. I talk many people who prefer different techniques and I try to accommodate as many as I can. Besides – I really like the variety and playing around with seeing the different ways to finish projects. Last week I introduced some new ornaments for Halloween. One set was of Halloween keys, with the key tops being made of cute characters. But some people didn’t care for the key theme, so I made...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1115: Halloween Key Ornament Variations

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

Yesterday was incredibly busy! It seemed like every second of the day was filled up, and while I felt I was really running, I did accomplish a great deal so it wasn’t a bad thing at all. I started out at 6am and didn’t call it a night until after midnight, but I am so happy with all that got done that until the very end, I didn’t even feel tired. It started out with taking sweet Coco to the vet. Once again I have to give kudos to the new vet and office. Not only did the...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1076: Body Parts

379 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

While I worked on my project most of the day, I still have another day to go before it is (hopefully) completed. I don’t really mind though, as it is coming out nicely and I also am learning how to use some new products and figuring out new techniques in applying them. I always like to look at each pattern as a lesson. Besides just the basic line work and construction of the project, I like to think that those who use my patterns are not only putting together the pieces, but learni...

My Garage/Work Shop Makeover #8: New Miter Saw Station - Construction Details

384 days ago by MT_Stringer | 8 comments »

I have been working diligently trying to get this phase of the makeover finished.Here are some pics of the construction. Case work with drawer slides ready for drawers or trays. Top of the cabinet. The miter saw portion will bolt on to the top of the two cabinets. Laying out the templates for the sides and ends. Dang that MDF makes a lot of dust. Rough cutting the openings so I can route ‘em smooth using the template I cut from MDF. Two routers are better than one! He...
