My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1691: Making Progress and Catching Up

02-04-2016 02:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After Monday night's power outage, things got back to normal rather quickly. I spent the next day finishing up the outstanding orders that I had and getting everything boxed up and ready to ship out the door. I worked at a very relaxed pace and enjoyed packaging everything up. Among the orders was another one of my SLDPK238 Halloween Haunted Carousel kits, which is one of my favorite things to sell. I think of the people who are receiving the items and I really do take a lot of care and p...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1689: Welcome February!

02-01-2016 01:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is hard to believe that the first month of the year is under our belts already. It seems like it was just December only a few days ago! Here in Nova Scotia, we have been (so far!) spared the fierce winter that we have become used to experiencing. Oh – we have had some snow, but it is nothing like what we experienced last year where we had storm after storm. I remember driving to Halifax at the end of April and still seeing small, stubborn piles of snow that did not want to seem to di...

Workbench?

01-29-2016 05:06 PM by haskins | 1 comment »

i’m thinking of building a versatile well built workbench that has a lot of lighting. I don’t do much hand tools so it wouldn’t need to suit that. I also want to put it against the wall, I know its not the best place for a workbench, but i just want to have something for small projects so that i can have a well lit place to film. I want to put a few drawers in it and maybe some storage on the wall. What do you’ll think will best suit my shop. shop: http://lumber...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1688: Deadlines

01-29-2016 01:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems that I am always working on some sort of  'deadline'.  I know that people think of those who are self-employed as being free to do whatever they choose whenever they wish to do it. While we may find that our schedules are a bit flexible at times, I honestly believe that if we follow the 'take-the-day-to-go-to-the-beach' mentality that so many perceive us to have too often, it is with near certainty that our business will fail. The entrepreneurs that I h...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1687: Encouragement

01-28-2016 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been another couple of very busy days. I am very fortunate that things are going so well and things keep me so busy. Not everything about what I do though is 'blog-worthy' or what I feel would be of interest. After all – how many times do you want to see photos of blank ornaments that I cut?  I am sure it loses its impact after a bit. But my month of January has been pretty much spent at the scroll saw.  (or packaging boxes, or answering emails!)  Whil...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1686: Color My World

01-26-2016 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am going to just do a short post today. It has already been quite a busy day and I need to stay ahead of things. Yesterday was busy and productive. Among other things, I was able to do a lot of the ground work for my next project. (The one I am creating for Toletown, that I mentioned yesterday.)  This project is taking some thought and experimentation, because I am trying a technique that I haven't really seen done before. That doesn't mean it is difficult or that it hasn&...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1685: Christmas in January?!?

01-25-2016 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a truly wonderful and productive weekend. while most of the eastern part of the United States was getting pounded with a blizzard, oddly enough Nova Scotia escaped its wrath. In fact, tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday it is supposed to be 7 and 6 degrees Celsius respectively. What an odd winter we are having. . . But living where we do, it didn't hurt to 'be prepared' for the storm, just in case it decided to change its path. It has been known to happen. We got all of ou...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1684: You Don't Got a Thing if you Ain't Got That BLING!

01-22-2016 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

You knew I was going to do it . . . It was just a matter of time. You knew that I wouldn't be able to resist adding some BLING to my new SLD521 Damask Heart Ornaments and SLD522 Heart and Soul Candle Tray.But how could I resist?  The rhinestones I get from Rhinestone Canada are so PRETTY and they are so EASY to apply.  And you can't deny that they make them look better, can you??So I got out my heat wand and rhinestones and went to work . . .All I had to do was place th...

Wood Trip!! #1: gotta love craigslist!

01-22-2016 02:01 AM by Phil | 9 comments »

Today I made a long trip(and I mean only 50 miles each way) to Chicago to a custom cabinet shop named Vero Designs to buy some lumber scraps. When I saw the ad online I was intrigued ad sent an email out. I told him that I am new to woodworking and was looking for end grain cutting board material. The guy Quinn told me he had bundles of lumber which were mostly hard maple and walnut with some wenge and sapele. I ended up getting all of it! I feel that I got a great deal with over 100 bd ft fo...
