Apothecary Cabinet.. #2: I was distracted.

I started to route the grooves in all 140 parts of the drawers for the Apothecary Cabinet….. I did manage to get 12 drawers done 48 pieces in all….. then I got distracted… or sidetracked…I did manage to finish the teasers… but will post tomorrow… Here is a pic of the Router table… I made this a few years ago… and the stops on the fence.. This helps to make the stopped grooves..I know this is a little difficult to see but the side pieces do no...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

1435 days ago by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #63: Starting To See A Change

1435 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

All in all it has been a rather quiet week. I guess by quiet it means that there have been no disasters or anything like that. I have been working on a new set of ornaments and drawing for the past several days, but I have also been doing lots of organizational stuff and things on the site and filling orders and such that have really filled the days for me. I got my July figures from my largest wholesaler yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised. So far for this year, it was my best sho...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #61: Things are Falling Into Place

1437 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It feels wonderful to see my business gaining some momentum again. Although I know it still has a way to go, it is a good feeling to see that I am gaining ground, even if it is just a little bit every day. it is a huge change from what I have experienced the past couple of years. Things had really slowed down and I had some personal things going on and had some people around me that were great influences in my life that only looked at the monitory side of things and it really sucked the li...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #56: Not Too Exciting Today

1442 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am feeling quite a bit unsettled today. Sometimes it is when I am in between projects that I get like this. I also had some not-so-great news the other day and the scope of it is really sinking in. I guess it was the timing. If I were in the thick of things and pushing at this point, it wouldn’t give me as much time to think. Maybe that is why I like being pushed so hard or pushing myself. :) I did get a lot of work done yesterday. I finished the five new candle tray pattern...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #51: Quality is Better Than Quantity

1447 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I really love the discussions and thoughts that you all send me on what I write about. It gets me thinking in so many different directions and it gives me a perspective on my work that it is impossible for me to have here on my own. I received so many great ideas in the past couple of days regarding striking a balance with work and the level of designs and not getting burned out. It is as if we are all sitting here having a cup of coffee and discussing these things. There are so many typ...

I'm gonna stick my foot in "The Health Care" thingie...

1450 days ago by jack1 | 30 comments »

I won’t do this very often but I’ve noticed a Lumberjock or two bragging on Canada’s health care system. Just found this today. Another rationing wrinkle. Those of you with small shops with employees (I’m not one), need to be aware. Just sayin’... http://www.investors.com/NewsAndAnalysis/Article/541129/201007211841/Rethinking-Socialized-Medicine-In-Canada.aspx

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #48: The Best Way to Learn is to Teach Others

1450 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I was going to write about something totally different today. I had something happen yesterday that wasn’t very pleasant that related to my business and I was going to share it here and tell my story. It wasn’t a positive thing, but everything did turn out OK and I am back on track and I thought it may be one of those ‘lesson learned’ blogs that you might be interested in. Then I woke this morning and was going through my email and I received some responses from a...
