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

11-30-2010 02:35 AM 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

11-29-2010 01:11 PM 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!

11-28-2010 02:33 PM 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

11-27-2010 03:04 PM 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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #176: Time to Focus

11-26-2010 02:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

OK. It is time to set some serious goals. I should be the poster child as to why goals need to be set. I find it amazing how I can be busy every second of the day, yet unless I have some specific goals in mind, I come through the day without seeming to accomplish much. Anyone out there have the same experience? I thought so. (Come on! If I can admit it – you can too!) I feel as if I have accomplished little of substance since the last catalog deadline a couple of weeks ago. O...

Christmas projects

11-23-2010 06:58 PM by Doug Scott | 2 comments »

By now all of us woodworkers should have or already have started on that special Christmas for that special person or people on our list. Every year I think I’m going to get started back in about September or October, but it has never happened . Try being employed in this type of business and still have time to work on your own projects is like the car mechanic that has the worst running car, but works on everyone else’s.I have managed to build 6 child rockin chairs and two are f...

Pushing forward

11-22-2010 07:10 AM by sawblade1 | 6 comments »

Good Morning LJ’s, this week has been kinda slow but productive, the slowness comes from me having another accident on my job :( I slipped and fell hard twisting my knee so I been slowed up by this affliction but I was able to get my templates for my chairs redone out of 1/2” MDF, and one of my chairs finished, after readjusting my jig to accommodate the thicker lumber This is about all I got accomplished this week not much but I feel guilty if I don’t post something this w...
