Resawing ziricote and honey locust on my bandsaw

08-17-2015 07:13 AM by rkoorman | 3 comments »

Hello everyone, I just love resawing. Don’t know why…There’s something magical about is. On this video I resaw some nice woods for my clients. The bandsaw I use is a Felder 510 with a DoAll Olympia 2 tpi blade on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wYA971NB9E Thanks for watching !

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1606: Numbers

08-13-2015 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

With the summer months here, it seems we are running just a bit slower. I know I am. I don't know if it was because of the back issues or if is attributed to some things that have been on my mind. We all go through highs and lows though, and for the most part, things are still moving in a forward direction – just slower. The only thing that seems to be moving quickly is "time". It is hard for me to believe that it is the middle of August already. It seems that summer ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1605: There's Hope

08-12-2015 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I had to skip posting. Our internet had become so spotty that it was difficult to stay online for any length of time. Over the past couple of weeks, both Keith and I noticed the problem was getting worse. The thing that got us wondering though was that much of the time it would work fine, but then it would be 'dragging' for increasing lengths of time. Sometimes hours. It is funny how dependent we have become on the internet. Not only for our business, but for our every ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1604: Baby Steps

08-10-2015 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

There are times when I get impatient with myself. I always have lots of plans and things that I want to do, and many times I only get a fraction of the things actually finished. If by some chance I do get close to the bottom of my list, I then feel that I didn't set my goals high enough. As you can see, I am kind of setting my self up for a 'no win' situation. It is hard sometimes to be objective though. Especially when I am dealing with myself. As I look at the Facebook post...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1603: The Black Cat Society

08-07-2015 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

All of you who know me know how much I love cats. I have had cats all my life and they are always a huge part of my daily living. I also love autumn and the beautiful fall colors. the deep, rich tones are always a pleasure to paint and work with. Last year I had an idea for a plaque for autumn/fall/Halloween. Unfortunately, it was a bit late in the season when I thought of it and I had to move on to other things. I was determined to have it done for this year. Like many ideas that I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1602: Nearing the Finish on This One

08-06-2015 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today's post will be short. (Really!)  It seems that the past couple of days, I have awaken to a lot of emails that need my attention. I have spent much of the morning working on that and I am anxious to get to finishing up my latest painting. Then on to writing the packet. I made good progress yesterday, adding details and thinking about the finishing touches that I will add today to complete it. I am pleased with how it looks, and feel good about it in general. I have enj...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1601: Progress!

08-05-2015 12:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Ahhhh  the sweet taste of "progress"!Like that first sip of coffee in the morning or the breathtaking beauty when the sun begins to illuminate the morning fog, it is something that sometimes causes us to just stop, take notice and enjoy.I am especially aware of positive progress in my current painting because things have been a bit of a struggle for me in creating it. Not because what I am creating is particularly difficult, but because there have been a few obstacles in place ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1600: Flight or Flight

08-04-2015 12:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is good to be back. Not only here blogging, but actually having something to blog about. Last week when I wasn't feeling my best, it reminded me just how important setting goals for myself and being productive was to my life. It is even more important because I am self-employed I think. Without setting new goals and working toward them every day, I would imagine that there is really no way that one could succeed.  I believe that 'success' and 'self-motivation' go h...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1599: Getting Back At It

08-03-2015 10:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Last week was not one of my usual weeks. Between getting the new computer and the issues I was having with my back, I felt that I didn't really accomplish a great deal. I have been writing here for over five years now, and I think this was the first time in all those years that I was here at home and took so much time 'off'. But sometimes it is needed. I always try to be positive and productive and have something interesting to write about. With the week that I had, I thought it b...
