My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #356: Today Is Another Day!

05-31-2011 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well it was good to get that out of my system. Sometimes it is best to take the plunge and just do what has to be done. I am not going to say there weren’t some rough spots. There was a point in the mid-afternoon where there was lots of stuff all over and I was beginning to feel quite overwhelmed. But I forged on and sorted and actually threw out the stuff that was no good and no longer useful and it was just about dinner time when things were back in place (only a bit neater!) and ...

Alabama Tornado Logs

05-30-2011 04:05 PM by Built2Last | 3 comments »

A month or so before the tornado’s hit Alabama on April 27th I had built a log loader that I could put in my 20’ utility trailer. I never dreamed it would get so much use. After the storms hit I posted an ad on Craig’s List offering to remove logs from yards for no charge. It’s been a month now and it will take another month or so just finish the two places I’m working on now. The picture of the loaded trailer is of about 500 board feet of white oak ...

So you think you can go pro ? :) #8: Watch Out Lest ye get your finger smacked by Murphy's hammer

05-30-2011 05:44 AM by sawblade1 | 10 comments »

Good evening LJ’s I know it’s been a while but I really haven’t had much to write about but here is a scoop load of info based upon my learning experience. Two weeks ago I was commissioned to build a bathroom cabinet not much three drawers, two doors so I quoted a price of around $320.00 :) The customer loved the price, But Boy did I sell myself short, After a Google search I found out it was called a vanity and boy was there a price difference Paint grade sell for $650...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #353: Finishing Touches on the Polar Bear

05-28-2011 01:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday was one of those fun days of working. I spent most of the day putting the finishing touches on my Polar Bear Pull Toy. Sometimes, as with a project such as this, that is my favorite part of designing. All the gritty work is done and it is time to have fun and do all the little things that complete the project. I went to my favorite little store where I get a lot of the craft and jewelry supplies that I use. Actually it isn’t even a store in itself, it is a grocery store...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #352: Rambling and Some Pictures for Dennis

05-27-2011 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

There is something about polar animals that enchant me. I don’t know what it is. I have always looked at them as creatures of great beauty. It strikes me as odd because as a painter, I am quite fond of color. I love painting wildlife and big cats and playing with the shading and tones and making them look realistic. Most of the Arctic animals are various shades of white and grey. You would think that would bore me. However, I did once paint a snow leopard in greyscale and it was ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #351: Sometimes Things Take More Than A Day

05-26-2011 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am beginning to see that finishing stuff in one day isn’t always possible. That may sound like a simple and obvious statement, but somehow for me it is somewhat of a new revelation. I spoke the other day about setting goals and accomplishing and whether or not they are set high enough or on the other side of the scale, too high. There were several good thoughts that you posted in the comments that made me think about the process a bit more and come to some perhaps revised though...

But this will be the first time...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #350: Mid-week "Weekend"

05-25-2011 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

I suppose that you could call yesterday my ‘weekend’. As I said in my post, it was a time when I was on top of things and I went into town and did some errands, and I decided to get something that I had my eye on since before Christmas. I suppose it could be a small tool gloat if you want to look at it that way. It is a slick little set of four boxes that can store all that small hardware that we tend to accumulate. Lately, I have been also using several types of beads and jew...

Going to local shows. #35: Torque about Tight...

05-24-2011 11:02 PM by degoose | 10 comments »

Well, the Torque went to the Brisbane Timber and Working With Wood show last weekend.. as part of the Gregory Machinery/Jet Australia stand… It was wonderful to be in such company… although the space provided was only just bigger than the Torque itself… It is amazing how you can adapt to the space allocated… if it had been bigger we would have filled it… but as it was it was tight fit. Can you see the Torque..?How about now? There it is? Ah this is...
