My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #182: Nativity Candle Tray is Finished

1359 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It is amazing to me how things work out sometimes. In contrast to the previous tray where the poinsettia candle tray took twice as long as I anticipated, the following tray that I cut yesterday (the nativity scene one) took only half the time I though it would. Hooray!!! The kicker is that I think it is every bit as attractive as the previous tray. I really kind of li like it. I used a simply scrumptious piece of maple that to make it that has a wonderful figure to it. It has some nic...

Wheelchair Woodworking #8: My Right Hand Man Gordon

1359 days ago by Jamie Speirs | 7 comments »

Gordon is my right hand man, I thought that I would tell you a bit about how he has changed my life.Gordon and I were introduced to each other by his brother in law fifteen years ago. I was in hospital with his BIL and he thought that we would get on. Gordon is also disabled and has many similar interests. We both like Counrty & western music along with the 60’s & 70’s music we grew up with. We both went gun slinging, It is the UK so we fire blanks. Will we ever grow up? I hope not.Go...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #181: Poinsettia Candle Tray

1360 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Sometimes I have to laugh at myself when I look back and read the goals I set out for myself in any given day. I think if I ever actually achieved all I set out to do, I would be labeled “superwoman”. I don’t think it is necessarily bad to set our goals high. When my kids were young, I used to tell them “If you reach your goals, you are setting them too low”. Now I was only kidding when I said that, and I made sure they knew it, but I can’t help but thi...

Tasmanian Woodworking... #10: The Morning After..

1362 days ago by degoose | 12 comments »

Last Monday, after the DIY WoodWorking Show in Launceston finished… Luke and I were fortunate enough to be invited out to Myrtle Creek, just a short drive into the hills from Launceston… A new found friend, Cranston Shaw, Managing Director of Shaw Engineering, the largest Civil Engineering Company in Tasmania, took time from his busy schedule to drive us out there and then make sure we were at the airport in plenty of time. We also had time to drop in for a bite to eat and a b...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #179: I Am Right Where I Want to Be

1362 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I did finish the drawings for the nativity candle tray, but it took me much more time than I anticipated. That’s OK though, because I am happy with the outcome. It just goes with the territory. I had planned on drawing until about noon or so – give or take. But at that point although I had the design done, I still wasn’t quite happy with it. I wanted to keep it simple, but I didn’t want it too simple. Sometimes it is hard to fi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #178: Now That's More Like It!

1363 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I sure do love it when things click in! I honestly don’t know what differentiates one day from the next but sometimes it just seems that things get rolling and things just . . . .well, roll! Yesterday was an amazingly productive day. I finished my new candle tray drawing and I began the next one. I have the next one all laid out in my mind as to what I want and again, it is only a matter of getting it down on paper to make it a reality. I had initially planned on painting Christm...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #177: Finished Gingerbread Candle Tray

1364 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I finished the Gingerbread Candle Tray set yesterday. It was near-done for the past couple of days, but I finished cutting and staining the little charms and doing the photography on it. I think it came out OK. It isn’t one of my most intricate projects, but I found that a lot of people are interested in it and I think it will be a nice and quick project to get done in time for the holidays. Here are the pictures of the finished holder: From SLD337 Gingerbread Candle Tray and Ch...
