1700 lbs Black Oak Burl

04-07-2011 05:31 PM by OregonBurls | 15 comments »

Just started cutting into this burl. Incredible! I am not sure if I am going to cut table slabs or block it up for turners. Time will tell. Enjoy! I need to ask a favor of my friends here. Would you go to Face Book and do a search for “Oregon Burls” and Become my friend there. It would help lots. PS Check out my new Website!!!

Not enough guys make wooden utensils for families to buy. I took my wooden coffee coaster sets to the senior center to sell on commission in their store. They requested for me to make wooden utensils for people to buy for their kitchens and they believe the wooden utensils would be a fast seller in their store so I am designing a set for them to sell in their store. I won’t charge a arm and a leg for them as I want my set to be affordable to families. My thoughts are if you put a littl...

Update on Mich. Lumberjock Gathering

04-05-2011 10:28 PM by jockmike2 | 22 comments »

I received a call this morning from Keith July, he was going to try and get us a free space for our gathering and has done so at the JOHNSON’S WORKBENCH in Charlotte. It is almost centrally located in Michigan. JOhNSON”S has offered us one of their warehouses to meet in. They have tables and a grill/ So if it is OK with everyone we thought we would make some dogs and hamburgers on the grill and maybe the wives could whip up a dish. Since this is a meeting place for the MID MICHIG...

Woodworking Business #6: Two Woodworking Business Blogs

04-05-2011 02:25 PM by billb | 1 comment »

I haven’t posted here in some time because of suffering through a bad flu that really put me down. In spite of the flu shot, which I take every year, this monster was overwhelming and it feels great to be nearly well again. I decided to catch up a little by sharing a couple of my woodworking business blogs where I was posting a great deal before the flu monster overtook me. One of them is called the Woodworking Business Blog and the latest posts are about several of the jobs I did...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #302: Finally some pictures!

04-02-2011 04:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I had some time this morning (everyone is still asleep) and I prepared some pictures for you to see from the show. This part was the items that were up for judging. There were so many beautiful and incredible pieces that were displayed that it was truly hard to pick which ones were the best. Fortunately, we were able to give out several “honorable mentions” which were indeed honorable. Most of the pieces I took pictures of were of turnings. I don’t know why this occur...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #299: We have arrived in Chicago!

03-30-2011 02:37 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

(Well, Plainfield anyway!) After a week of excitement, we are ready to begin the next leg of our trip. We arrived in Chicago after a little over 13 hours of driving and everything went according to plan. For the next several days, (until Monday) we are staying here with my son Phil and his wife Brianna. It has been nearly four years since I have seen him and since then they have purchased their own house. Phil is a Joliet Police officer and lives in Plainfield, which is just outside the...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #298: Better Early than Late

03-29-2011 03:20 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Thank you all so much for the well wishes. It certainly has been an adventure! I am writing this on Monday night because we are off early tomorrow and have 13 hours of driving to get to Chicago. Right now I am in Milford, PA staying at Keith’s auntie’s house (she is a lovely woman named Sheila!) Today I finally got to see New York City. Google directions screwed up and took us through the city and we got to go through the Bronx and on the George Washington Bridge. I had ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #297: End of a Great Show

03-28-2011 12:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Wow! The show was incredible! I promise to catch up better in a bit when I download all of my pictures. By the fourth lecture I felt really comfortable and “in my element”. People were SO nice and I was happy to hear such positive feedback about the lectures. Today we are leaving Saratoga Springs and heading for New Jersey and visiting the magazine. I will take some pictures and hopefully be able to catch up more when I get to Chicago and on a regular computer. I just wan...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #296: Better Late Than Never

03-27-2011 01:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Hi guys and girls! Is it too late to post today?? I hope not. It has been an incredibly eventful couple of days and this was the first chance I actually got to write. The show was crazy/busy today which is a great thing. I was there late last night doing the judging of the projects and I needed to get up early today for a 6:30 breakfast with the other judges. They kept me on quite a schedule. I have lots of stories and pictures for you all, but it is still difficult for me to write t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #295: Setting Up

03-25-2011 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well, we will finally be able to get into the convention hall and set things up today. We will also be able to meet everyone who is involved in the show. Yesterday was an odd day. I am really really glad that we got here when we did but I felt like it was one of those “wait to hurry up” types of days. Jeannie and her husband Bill were busy with the final preparations, as you can imagine. Keith and I spent most of the morning looking around and shopping. Our hotel is righ...
