My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #466: A Quiet and Very Productive Day

09-19-2011 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday went pretty much as I hoped it would. That is always a good thing, but it doesn’t make for very exciting blog reading. That’s OK though. A day or two without turmoil in my life is a good thing I think. Every day doesn’t have to be an adventure. I spent the morning finishing up on the drawings for my next pattern set. I am happy with them and I think that they came out every bit as good as the first set. I am going to be cutting them out today and I always ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #465: Sunday is My Weekend

09-18-2011 01:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am pretty satisfied with all that I accomplished yesterday. I spent most of the day playing around with the new ornament design and I am at this point about half an hour from calling it a wrap and getting to cutting. There are eight birds in this set, as with the first set and the framework is the same so I found it quite easy to draw them up. It seems for me that once I start on a certain style, I get on a roll and things happen very quickly. I will be cutting them out tomorrow, as I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #464: Wearing Many Hats

09-17-2011 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

In looking back at the past week, it seemed that many situations arose that called for me to play many different roles within my company. I was required to be a technical consultant, accountant, customer service representative, writer, advertising agent, administrator, teacher and photographer. Oh, and I almost forgot – a designer. It certainly was a full week! So many times people say to me that they don’t want to do woodworking as a living because it would take the fun out...

Dust Deputy for my shop

09-16-2011 06:29 PM by thiswoodshop | 18 comments »

With all my wood turning and saw dust that is generated in the shop that accumulate rather quickly I needed something that wont clog my vacuum every time is vacuum. I was searching around in the Google Search engine and found The Dust Deputy . I used a Home Depot bucket and my Ridgid vacuum cleaner. This system has proven to very satisfactory and does a great job. I almost never have any thin in vacuum cleaner. I just mounted the system on a simple 2×4 and plywood cart.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #463: (Happily) Back to Drawing

09-16-2011 11:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am pleased to report that although yesterday had a shaky beginning, in the end it really turned out to be a good day. I am learning my way around this customer service maze that I find myself in sometimes and I am actually starting to figure out the right person to contact when certain issues come up with my website. I know that sounds like it should be a given, but when maintaining the websites’ ability to take and process orders, it involves several codependent elements which al...

Reclaimed Cedar #1: The Journey Begins

09-15-2011 07:13 PM by Chris Love | 3 comments »

Hello all! In addition to wood working, I am very involved with the Boy Scouts of America. Both of my sons are Boy Scouts and I am currently an Assistant Scout Master. One of our Eagle Scout Candidates recently completed his Eagle project that involved removing an “old” Cedar Rail Fence. Rather than see all of this beautifully aged cedar turn into firewood; I offered to take it and repurpose it into projects. I love to make outdoor furniture and will post entries here as ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #462: Premature Celebration (or "Don't Bank on It")

09-15-2011 01:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Well, folks. I spoke too soon. I started doing the end zone dance before I crossed the line and wound up fumbling the ball. I suppose we have all been guilty of that from time to time. Perhaps we are just so hopeful that things work out that we convince ourselves that they are before we actually have the proof in front of us. Then we realize that we aren’t on the solid ground we appeared to be and reality hits and we feel kind of foolish for assuming that things were OK in the firs...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #461: Quality, Not Quantity

09-14-2011 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As I look to the calender today and see that we are almost half way through September, I am once again amazed at how quickly time seems to pass. I truly don’t mean to keep complaining about it, as I know I mention it from time to time here, but I just can’t get over how the days go by so quickly. It never used to seem this way. It gets me to wondering. Does this mean I am a poor time manager? Or does it mean that my life is full and therefore the hours slip by quickly? I fe...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #12: First Craft Show

09-13-2011 10:39 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

Well, as my project postings have been showing, I have entered my first craft show to be held on Oct. 1st. At first I could not figure IF I wanted to be part of the craft show scene. Most of the have drawbacks that I wanted to avoid. First of all the entry fee is generally high. Second a lot of them last several days. And third, most of them require a LOT of product so that you can last till the end of the show. All of these reasons lead me to think that I did not want to be part of this busi...
