My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #825: Differences

707 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Many times when we hear of two people having ‘differences’ we think it is a bad thing. The mere term brings to mind visions of conflict and discontent. But when looking at things from another perspective, perhaps as an artist or creative person, differences are not viewed as something negative, but rather sought after in order to provide value through uniqueness and individuality. The more unique they are, the higher the value. I think that it is interesting that a word woul...

708 days ago by Keith Fenton | 14 comments »

Sheila (Landry) and I have been working to expand our business into new directions and in trying to appeal to a broader audience.

Drying Burl Wood #2: Consideration #2 By OregonBurls

732 days ago by OregonBurls | 3 comments »

Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...
