Blog #1

03-17-2016 01:28 PM by MatthewTruax | 1 comment »

With this being my first blog, I’ll start by saying that my name is Matthew Truax. I’m currently serving the Army, and I live in the Midwest. Of course, being in the Army and having a wood shop has proven to be difficult as I’m currently well over my household goods weight limit. I’m trying to mitigate that by getting rid of what I don’t need and building multi tool stations in the shop to alleviate space issues as well. My shop currently resides in a two car ...

The art of building Wooden boats

03-16-2016 03:14 AM by BigBrownLog | 8 comments »

I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1710: Congratulations to my Friend

03-11-2016 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I read somewhere yesterday on  Facebook that 'resting isn't wasting time – it is your body repairing itself.' (If it is on Facebook – it must be true, right? ;) ) I tried to take that to heart because I actually accomplished very little yesterday. I kind of spent the day milling around. When Keith went to do the daily errands of going to the store and post office, I found myself fighting to keep my eyes open. I hadn't really slept very much the previous n...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1709: A Horse of a Different Color

03-10-2016 02:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The past couple of days have had me down with a cold. It hasn't been a terrible cold, but enough to make me tired and move a lot slower than I would like to do. Fortunately, it has come at a time when things are slowing down a little for me. While there is never a 'good' time for being sick, I am glad this wasn't a month or so ago when I was in the midst of cutting the hundreds of ornaments that have been ordered from me.  (I always try to look on the positive side of thi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1707: Three New Scroll Saw Designs

03-04-2016 01:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Sometimes I feel as if I have triplets. In a way, I do. (Or even quadruplets or quintuplets – depending on how you look at it!) There are just so many aspects of creating that I enjoy, that it is difficult to stick to only one medium.  I love painting and drawing, but I also love embroidery and woodworking as well. Then there are paper craft and even sewing. I have so many ideas that cross over into other areas that it is hard to decide which ones I want to do at any given moment. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1706: Wearing my Woodworking Hat

03-03-2016 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Oh – I seem to be so late at getting to my blogs these days! I find that I wind up spending the mornings visiting my artistic friends' pages and seeing what they posted through the night. That usually takes me away to other places and gives me MORE ideas of new things to create. It is a vicious circle! ;) I spent the day yesterday finishing up drawing my new patterns for the scroll saw projects I am making and I actually got MOST of them cut out. With all the errands and stuff ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1705: Day 3 of my "12 Days of Christmas" Project Complete!

03-01-2016 01:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is hard to believe that it is MARCH already! Here in Nova Scotia, it is definitely coming 'in like a lamb' as we have sunshine and warm temperatures and a slight breeze. It really feels good to have the windows opened and allow the fresh air inside. Even if we do see another spot of winter, I am grateful for these little breaks. It is a nice indication of what is yet to come. I spent yesterday working on some new designs as well as finishing up my "Day 3" of my Lynne...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1704: Leap Day Monday

02-29-2016 01:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I am always looking for more time, it seems. Once every four years my wish comes true – we get an extra day to do things. Today is leap day and many consider it an 'extra' day. I will gladly take it!This year has been so busy from the start for me. I can't believe that we are through the first two months already. Time is certainly moving quickly – even more so than usual. I suppose it helps that I sit here on this February 29th with my window open slightly. I am enjoyi...

Wanting to see where a good place to sale a Oakley R99 edge sander would be.

02-29-2016 02:37 AM by Vest | 0 comments »

Have a Oakley R99 edge sander. It is a 3 phase machine with a 3 hp motor. It is around 10 ft in length and weighs around 800 to 1000lbs. Needing to know the best place to advertise it for sale and a good price to ask for it. The machine is in good shape. There is nothing missing or broken. I have had it on Craigslist for awhile . I live in eastern Ky.

Cigar Shop - Display Rack

02-27-2016 11:32 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

The other day my brother gave me a call, asking if I wanted to build something for his shop. He owns a Cigar shop in Whitecourt Alberta called Cheap Smokes and Cigars. It’s a really cool shop, very classy and nostalgic, they have the basic inventory of cigarettes which they sell cheaper than any gas station or grocery store can offer, but beyond that they have an array of humidors (My creations will soon be joining this inventory), Pipes, Tobacco, Vaporisers and a massive walk in humido...
