My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #482: Out of the Zone

10-05-2011 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It’s raining again this morning and I am starting to think that I should scroll saw an ark. I think it has rained for about five days straight now, and even though it isn’t violent weather, it just seems like a lot. I usually don’t let the weather get to me, and it certainly hasn’t now, but I have wanted to go for a nice walk in the woods and take in the sites before the leaves all fall. Each day I notice more and more of them are turning golden brown. I am wonde...

Would anyone be interested in a blog on selling your work?

10-05-2011 02:08 AM by Michael1 | 6 comments »

Hello fellow lumber jocks. I was wondering how many would be interested in reading a blog series on selling your work? Mainly geared toward those working in the industry or thinking of opening their own woodworking business and would be interested in a tutorial series on finding their customer base, cold calling, giving presentations and closing the sale, etc. I have been self employed in some form of woodwork for over 20 years from residential cabinets, furniture, commercial casework, woo...

Community Woodshop #1: Community Woodshop LA - are you interested?

10-05-2011 02:36 PM by communitywoodshopLA | 7 comments »

My name is Scott Stevens and I have an idea to create a community woodshop. My goal is to create a friendly environment for people to explore woodworking. People will not only come to use the woodworking machines but also to learn something new, to share knowledge, and to be a part of the community. There will be a wide range of classes offered for all levels of woodworkers (including children) and the woodshop will carry professional grade machines with some specialty machines not nor...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #481: I'm Getting an Early Start Today

10-04-2011 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I got up early this morning. It was one of those days where you just wake up and feel good and get moving. I suppose that there is a lot on my mind, but that is usually the case and I don’t see today as being much different from every other days. There is always lots to do. It’s still raining (it has been for several days now) and it has been misty and kind of dreary. I am kind of waiting for it to dry up a little bit so I can take a walk in the woods. The trees are startin...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #14: First Craft Show - It Was Fun

10-03-2011 02:51 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

As any or you know who have looked at my postings for the past month or so I attended my first craft show last Saturday. This was a local event at a mission location of my Church. Seemed to be a safe place to start and it helped a cause the I well support. Overall I think I did fairly well. On of the first rules of craft shows is to recover the amount of your booth space. I did that in the first hour. Secondly is to sell some product and I well did that. Thirdly is to gauge the quality of ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #480: Monday Madness

10-03-2011 11:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am typing fast, as I am running out early this morning. There is lots to do on this busy Monday and I want to get an early start. One of the things that is on the list is to contact the place where I purchased the magnets sheets from and see what different types of materials they have to offer. Even though I like these thin sheets, I would almost like something that is just a little thicker with slightly more holding power. As I indicated on yesterdays’ blog, these are pretty m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #479: Researching 'Attractive' Possibilities

10-02-2011 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

A couple of weeks ago while picking around, I found something that intrigued me. I forget what I was looking for, but I stumbled across some magnetic sheeting on Ebay. Now I am not one to generally shop at Ebay. Once in a while I will see a copy of a ‘vintage’ painting book or something like that but other than that I don’t really want to take the time to scout it out and bid and all of that. Besides – by the time all the charges are added for shipping to Canada,...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #10: Lesson 10 - Cutting Negative Designs

10-01-2011 04:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

In scroll sawing, there are several different types of ways to make a nice design. Some people make beautiful portraits by playing with lights and shadows. Here is an example of portrait designs: The above portrait was designed by my partner Keith. I have not yet done much portrait cutting, but there are many scrollers here such as Scroll3r, KnotCurser and William who do really nice work on them. Another type of design is what is referred to as a ‘positive’ design. I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #478: Finding My Comfort Zone

10-01-2011 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I really feel good about yesterday. It was one of those days where everything just marched along as it should and in the end, I felt like I really accomplished a lot. I felt good and I stayed really focused on what I wanted to accomplish and by the time the day was complete, I had done what I had set out to do and more. There were few distractions and I really had fun too. One of the most important things that I did was to get my next lesson up. It had been a couple of weeks since I post...
