My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1832: Progress Report

04-24-2017 12:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am trying to keep my promise to myself to get back to posting when I have made progress on some of my projects. With that said, I had a pretty productive weekend and wanted to share some of what I did with you all. I spent most of Saturday working up in my shop. I had some orders to go out, and I have a large project that I am working on with another artist that I want to stay on top of and chip away at gradually. That way, by working it in with my other work, I hardly notice the time ...

Venues #1: Gallery Calapooia Installation

04-23-2017 10:49 PM by Jerry | 20 comments »

I was recently invited to join Gallery Calapooia in Albany, OR. Today I put my work in the Gallery. About a week ago when I first got admitted, a reporter from the local press, the Mid-Valley media group, came out and shot a bunch of video of me working in the shop and did an interview. Then a reporter from another local paper came out and did an interview and took a bunch of pictures. At the end of May Albany holds its’ annual “Wine Walk”, my work will be in the front...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1831: The Process

04-21-2017 12:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It's funny how we fall into and out of habits. There are times when this happens with little effort or thought, and other times (usually when trying to develop positive habits) that it seems like a chore to follow through with things each day. There are also times in our lives when things change unexpectedly and along with it, our routines. I suppose that is part of living.For the past several months, it seems that every time I post here I am apologizing for not posting as often as I used...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1829: Changes

04-05-2017 02:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems so long since I have posted, that I almost forgot how to do it. (Not really – but you get the point!)  The past month or month and a half have really been quite a change for both myself and my business. It is a good thing, but something that takes a bit of time to adjust to, and I find that I am finally feeling that I a getting 'caught up' and doing that. It has been a busy and crazy time for me, though. Things really started to get busy when Lynne Andrews lau...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1828: I'm Still Here!

03-22-2017 12:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems like it has been forever since I posted a blog. As a person who posted a new blog nearly every day for over five years, it seems that I have been quite lax lately in keeping up. I apologize about that.It isn't that I am not busy. Quite the opposite is true. It seems that the floodgates have been opened and all of a sudden things are really kind of wild. That in itself is wonderful, but it is also kind of scary. While I am thrilled and excited about this recent 'growth spurt&#...

Hand plane restoration

In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

2017 PATINA Spring Tool Sale and Auction

03-14-2017 06:21 PM by EricTwice | 0 comments »

If you get a chance go. A friend finally convinced me this year. I dropped my Stanley 9 1/2 and broke it. I bought it in 95. it is English made. I was hoping to find another like it and have spare parts. No such luck. I settled for a 1950s era U.S. made one, new in box for which I paid 20$. I’m happy. I also picked up a 6” Millers Falls sliding square and a 5” Starret for very reasonable. Yes there are some pricey offerings, but you can also find some very reasonable p...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1827: All That Glitters

03-10-2017 01:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been a wild and incredibly busy week. I have spent most of my days up in my shop, working on cutting my wood orders. It is difficult to call it 'work' because I do enjoy doing what I do so much. With the release of Lynne Andrew's Noah's Ark series last week, there has been a huge rush to purchase the wood pieces from me. Along with this have been our regular orders and all the other business tasks. I never in my wildest dreams could have imagined being in such a wonderf...
