My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #510: Mini-Road Trip

11-02-2011 11:46 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Today’s post will be a rather short one, as we are going to be off and running soon. We need to go to Bear River to pick up Keith’s remaining pens and see how sales went at the gallery there. They closed at the end of October, as they do every year and we are meeting with the owner to discuss how things went and make plans for next season. It will be an interesting trip. Since we didn’t really get the pens into the shops until August, we realize that much of the season...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #509: Pause. Enjoy. Carry On.

11-01-2011 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well, now we are into November. I know I am always saying this, but where the heck does the time go? The days are so full and yet they pass so quickly. Seeing October pass always makes me kind of sad. If I had to pick a favorite month of the year, that would probably be it. Not only because the beauty of the changing colors, but the relief from summer’s heat and the memories I have from Octobers past. It always makes me feel cozy and think of when the kids were young and when I w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #507: Computer Gremlins - Just In Time for Halloween!

10-30-2011 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

OK We are going to try this again. Yesterday was a bit of frustration and I am still do not quite understand what happened. I have written blogs in different sessions before – even closed things out completely on my computer and came back and what I had written was still there. I am reading just above the boxes here that ‘drafts are saved every 30 seconds’ and I believe that. But yesterday, for some reason that wasn’t the case. Maybe in the spirit of Halloween th...

Selling Your Wood Work Tutorial #9: How to handle Objections

10-29-2011 07:38 AM by Michael1 | 2 comments »

DEALING WITH OBJECTIONS Part One Before I get into dealing with objections, I received a very good comment from fellow LJ thedude50 that is a very good and important point in closing the sale. When you present your closing statement, many times there will be a uncomfortable silence period. It may feel like several minutes, but rest assured you are nervous and it really is only a few seconds. Sometimes the prospect is ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #505: Backups and Maintenance Today

10-28-2011 11:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Well, I got an early start today in hopes of getting a lot done. I am in the process once again of backing things up on my computer and before I do that I like to clean house and get everything in the right place. It has been a while since I did an entire back up and it is amazing the amount of new information that I have added here. I suppose I am a busy girl. My partner just expanded his computer by adding a couple of new hard drives and some memory. His computer is the ‘host&#...

Milling Lumber (grudgingly) #7: Now what?

10-27-2011 02:54 AM by MoshupTrail | 6 comments »

So now I have a fairly large quantity of red oak. Most of it is probably FAS equivalent. No knots, nice straight grain, and some is quarter-sawn with excellent ray flecking. I’ll probably separate that out and set it aside for hobbyists – furniture. But the bulk of the wood seems like a good candidate for some flooring. If I were to sell it as flooring, I could unload large quantities, like 100-400 bf at a time. It wouldn’t take too many of those to recover the cost of...

Where does lumber come from? #1: See where the trees grow and help those who work there! A win-win!

10-27-2011 02:11 AM by dbkmd | 4 comments »

As an amateur woodworker I am continually amazed at the incredible variety and beauty of the woods we work with. I live next to an old oak forest in Oregon and, while the wood I manage to extract from our fallen trees is hard to work with, I am continually amazed at the rich variety of patterns and colors that I find in its depths. Then, when I make of foray to our local wood supplier a whole new world is presented to me. It’s astounding! I often wonder what my woodworking creations look...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #503: New Ornaments!

10-26-2011 11:15 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday was an extremely productive day and I finished both my order for the large snowflake and also my new ornaments. It felt good to get so much accomplished. I don’t think I worked harder than I do on most days, but I actually reached the finish line on two things at almost the same time so there is a great feeling of accomplishment. Finishing up the snowflake puzzle wasn’t bad at all. I actually made two of them so one is sitting here on the shelf if anyone else decid...
