My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #346: And Yet Another Tray

05-21-2011 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Will I ever get tired of seeing how walnut seems to come to life when it is finished with oil and spray shellac? I doubt it. Walnut is just one of my all time favorite woods. I think that I could make just about anything using walnut and as long as I take the time to finish it properly, it will look impressive. I cut another candle tray out yesterday. The wood I used was (you guessed it!) walnut! This time I made a moose scene and it seemed to me that walnut was really the only choice ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #345: Another Tray Finished

05-20-2011 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

I had a very productive day yesterday. I was able to get the next candle tray cut out entirely, as well as sand and finish the butterfly tray and the new one. The more I work with my new saw the more I like it. I have never had a lamp that was attached to the saw like that before and it is a vast improvement over having my little task lamp and having to move it around so that I can turn my pieces when cutting. It is great that it is out of the way. There are however a couple of things ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #344: Poopie Happens

05-19-2011 12:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I had a fairly good day yesterday. The past several days when I wasn’t feeling so well, I was able to draw up three new candle tray patterns and they were all at the point where they were ready to be cut. In keeping with my own tradition, I like to tackle the most difficult/time consuming one first. I don’t know why I like to work this way, but for me it always feels good to do the hardest thing when I feel the freshest. I really liked the way the butterfly candle tray looke...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #343: Getting Back to Normal

05-18-2011 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Little by little I am beginning to feel a bit better. I felt better yesterday than Monday and I feel better today than yesterday. As long as I feel there is improvement, I am happy. I went to see my own doctor yesterday and she confirmed that there was swelling in my back. I got one more prescription to help with that so hopefully that will also help me get back to normal quickly. I was happy to hear from her that she thought I should move around and not just stay sitting or in bed. In ...

Workshop Improvements #2: Experience, The Right Tools, & a Little CA

05-17-2011 01:41 AM by ChrisCrafts | 1 comment »

I started this little adventure into Woodworking just over a year ago. It has been quite the God send as an escape from the mind numbing boredom that can result from permanent Disability. In that time I have learned enough to fill an encyclopedia, although I have just scratched the surface in terms of overall knowledge. In the beginning I tried to get it done on the cheap with a mixture of Shopsmith & Harbor Freight Tools. After 6 months of “practicing” the craft I realized...

Advice for my new business?

05-13-2011 03:10 PM by robbinscabin | 17 comments »

You all know that hubby and I have recently started our own small business…North Country Rustics. It should come to no surprise to anyone that I consider myself pretty handy. I have marginal art skills, marginal tool skills, a pretty creative mind, and a real desire to “create”. I also boast some pretty good computer skills. Yet I feel completely lost when it comes to really getting my business off the ground. I’ve sold some items but mostly to family and friends&#...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #336: Another Pull Toy Replica

05-11-2011 01:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I can’t remember when I last felt so good about things. I have always loved what I do, but it just seems like things are really falling into place and it is truly a pleasure to get up every morning to work. I don’t know if it is the new tools or my friends or being organized or just being at a good place in my life that makes it so enjoyable. Perhaps it is because I am doing what I have always wanted to do. It feels so wonderful being able to draw and make fun things and be cr...
