My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1598: Down but not Out

07-29-2015 12:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I was really and truly writing my blog yesterday when some pretty impressive storms rolled in. Even though I am in the process of replacing the main components of my computer (motherboard, processor, memory, main drive) I really didn't want anything to happen to my current computer. I am awaiting delivery of the new SSD drive, and Keith should be changing things over in the next several days.  The board arrived on Monday: It should be a nice change, although it will be a bit of a ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1597: A Beautiful Day in My Neighborhood

07-27-2015 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I can think of many people who live in lovely places, yet sometimes take them for granted. I don't think we realize that we are doing this until for some reason or another (school, job, etc.) we are taken away from our homeland for any length of time and then return to it. It seems that we come 'home' and look at things with new eyes. We notice things that we hadn't paid attention to before. Things that were right there all the time. Coming from Chicago, I am perhaps more...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1596: Lesson Learned - Pretty Scary

07-24-2015 11:40 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

The day took a somewhat unexpected turn for me yesterday when Keith decided to make the hour long trip to Bear River to replenish some of the pens that he had on consignment in the artisan shop "Flight of Fancy". He had received a call from the owner, Rob a couple of weeks ago and was asked to bring more fountain pens, as the last one he had there had just sold. Even though Keith doesn't do much turning anymore, he still had some stock of beautiful pens left, and since it w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1595: The Tides are Turning

07-23-2015 12:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As I looked back at the last few blog entries, I hoped that I didn't appear to be negative or upset. While I was definitely going through a time where I didn't feel very productive or focused, I only shared those posts because I want you all to know that it is part of the process. Perhaps by me writing down and telling you all about it, it also helped to remind myself that it is perfectly natural (if not necessary) and something that I shouldn't be worried about. I often rece...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1594: Hunky Dory

07-22-2015 11:25 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was sitting here this morning sipping my second cup of coffee and trying to think about something inspiring to write about today. Since I am still experiencing the lull that I mentioned yesterday, I fear that today's post would be bland and uninteresting. "Why then would I even choose to write?", you may ask.To be honest, I considered the possibility of skipping. Of course, that would be the easy and probably the most logical thing to do. While there is seemingly limitles...

Sawstop sues Bosch

07-21-2015 09:57 PM by Nickdarr | 3 comments »

I own a Sawstop PCS. I love it and think it is a great saw. I do not own a Bosch saw. But, I am disappointed in Mr. Gass/Sawstop for suing Bosch. I understand business and the concept of protecting intellectual property. However, Sawstop pushes the idea their saws are all about safety. This is pushed as the driving force. Money is secondary. If that is truly the case, why are they suing another company that has technology that can help woodworker safety? Either be honest or drop the suit. Jus...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1593: The Lull

07-21-2015 12:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday morning I honestly did have an entire post written. I was just applying the finishing touches and corrections on it when my computer screen went blank. The power was out.It was a rainy morning here, but nothing like the violent storms I had experienced growing up in Chicago. The rain was soft and relaxing and when I first awoke I could hear some gentle rumbling of thunder in the distance.While the climate here in Nova Scotia is very similar to the one I grew up with living in Chicag...

planer or sander

07-17-2015 09:01 PM by bruce1 | 4 comments »

I am in the art business. I am going to begin printing on wood. I will probably do some on softwood lathes and some on band sawn 2×4s. In either case I need to kiss the wood – remove maybe 1/16”. I do not want the final result to be completely smooth. It can still have some tear. This will be production runs, several thousand feet per month. Maybe 14,000 feet. Should I buy a sander or a planer. Obviously, I need to feed the material quickly. Labor costs are a kill...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1592: Self-Doubt

07-17-2015 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It isn't often that I am at a loss for words. However, as I begin to write today, I am finding difficult in expressing myself. After yesterday's post of my recent painting of Layla the tiger, I received such a huge amount of positive comments from various social media venues that I am completely humbled and in awe. I just never expected it. I sit here and write to  you all each morning, and I don't often think of the 'audience' that reads. Oh – I occas...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1591: Layla - You've Got Me on My Knees!

07-16-2015 12:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I missed posting yesterday because I had somewhat of a 'technical glitch'. It seemed that some of the RAM (memory) in my computer decided to quit on me and it did so in stellar fashion. Earlier in the prior day, I began getting a couple of memory errors. That happens at times and I thought nothing of it. But when I tried to do my morning mail and received five "blue screens of death" in the first hour, I knew something was truly amiss. My main board, processor and memor...
