Shop #2: Shop Progress #2

04-24-2012 11:40 PM by Koa | 3 comments »

Hey guys, thanks for all of your comments! They are truly inspiring and kind. This entire project is taking much longer than anticipated. But what the heck, I’m only one man afterall. If you could, please take a look at my progress pictures posted below and feel free to offer any suggestions / criticisms that come to mind. This is one way that I (we all) improve. Your Input is Valuable to Me. I want this workshop to be as close to the “ultimate setup” as it can get. But finally, keep in mi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #681: More Transformations

04-24-2012 11:12 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Last week, I posted a blog called The Butterfly Effect in which I talked about how getting a new sofa led to making some necessary changes in our home and working area. One of the most necessary changes was to rid ourselves of the two clunky monitor stands that we used to hold our computer screens. Since the new sofa reclines on both ends, it was almost impossible to do so with having the monitor stands in front of it. Also, since the reclining mechanisms are underneath, we were no...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #680: Busy Monday

04-23-2012 10:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

What a great weekend it was for me creatively! Yesterday I made huge headway on my holiday project that I am going to submit to the magazine and today I will be doing the finishing touches of the drawings and ready to cut. I also lined up probably five or six assorted projects and can’t wait to get to them. I am excited about many things and I don’t know what to start with first. Getting things organized and mapped out is usually more than half the battle. I don’t like...

Lasers in woodworking. #3: To help pay for the laser?

04-21-2012 10:02 PM by degoose | 16 comments »

Massive clearance sale… It appears that I have too much timber… according to SWMBO… and being in the market for a Laser Engraver… I have decided to have a massive clearance… nearly all the timber I have in stock will be sacraficed for the greater good… more room to buy more timber…lol… and room for the new laser as well as part funding of the new purchase… Unfortunately this sale will be for those close enough to come out and pi...

Lasers in woodworking. #2: Lasering your brand.

04-21-2012 09:30 PM by degoose | 24 comments »

As many of you know, I have a branding iron to mark my projects… made of brass and heated with a butane torch… time consuming and if it is not hot enough or too hot ….it can come out a bit ordinary… Enter the Laser… Here are a few examples of my branding of wooden items with the laser.. Cherry. European Walnut. Close up on Western Australian Jarrah.. These were completed using Vector mode but would be equally nice in Raster mode…and are on...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #677: The Butterfly Effect

04-20-2012 11:11 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It’s funny how changing one thing can cause such a need for changes elsewhere. I see this happen time and time again. We start by cleaning out a bedroom closet, and before we know it we are repainting the entire room. It is one of those chain reactions that we don’t always understand but continually see happening around us. Yesterday the new sofa arrived. Everything went according to schedule. The delivery time was promised at ‘early afternoon’ and by golly they...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #675: Closure

04-18-2012 11:13 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I figure you are all probably tired of reading about me doing this order, but it has really occupied so much of my time this past week or so that there is little else for me to write about. Today will be the final day regarding it, except perhaps in passing (I promise!) I finished getting everything packed up yesterday and took the remaining part of the day to get the house back to normal. In living in a small place, you can imagine the disruption that having the bulk of the patterns and...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #674: Wrapping It Up

04-17-2012 11:13 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As I look around today and see the boxes filling up with patterns, I can’t help but think that I learned a lot in the past couple of weeks. For someone like me who isn’t used to doing this type of work, I feel quite accomplished having completed this order. I’ll be honest and say that I am getting ready to move on to other things by now. I want to clear out all these boxes and get my world here back in order and get some drawing and designing done. Looking back though, I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #673: Packaging

04-16-2012 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

By the end of today, I should be pretty much ready to put in a call to Purolator to pick up the boxes of patterns. This will be a huge milestone as far as I am concerned and I will feel great about doing such a big job in a relatively short amount of time. When looking back on the last couple of weeks, I realize that I have woven some other projects in between doing the production work. Not only did that help to keep the work interesting, but it also helped me get things out in other dire...
