My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #867: Pretty as a Picture

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

One thing that I love about doing design work is that there are so many aspects of the process to consider. In addition to drawing the patterns on the computer, the projects need to be cut, assembled and finished in order to make sure that everything was done properly. Once that is finished, the actual instructional pattern packets need to be created, which include clear and concise directions on how others can replicate the project easily. This often includes not only step-by-step photogra...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #865: New Dimensional Ornaments!

662 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 17 comments »

Today is one of my favorite days of the year.

Now how I am going to use that extra hour is hard to decide. There are so many wonderful directions that I am heading in right now that I could choose from a variety of tasks. Yesterday was a very productive and happy day for me. All week I was working on a new ornament ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #781: The Crackle Finish Video is Posted

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

After showing the snowmen ornaments in which I had used the crackle finish, I had many people write and ask me questions about the product. I thought it would be a good time to try out the new camera and make a video showing how to apply the product. Things went fairly well, but as with learning anything new, there are a couple of ‘glitches’ that I had to deal with. I did a little better with the filming itself, although at the end of the video, I accidentally dropped the hea...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #12: "Reindeer Games" Layered Ornaments Part 2

760 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Ok! So I dropped the ball a little! I honestly forgot that I was posting these videos here in the class. I suppose that there was a bit too much going on, and then I took a short holiday and it completely slipped my mind. I suppose I don’t earn the prize as the smartest kitten in the litter, do I? But hopefully, you will all let bygones be bygones and we can continue on from here in our little adventure. Let’s see . . . where were we? We had our pattern applied t...

PhotoBlog: How I designed and created the First Year Ornament

964 days ago by jimleigh1313 | 0 comments »

See HERE for completed project Recently, I bought a Grizzly bandsaw. One of the reasons I decided to buy a bandsaw was to re-saw lumber for use on a scroll saw. The scroll saw was my first ‘tool’ that I bought, and before, I was limited to purchased plywoods for my scroll saw cuts. I was quite surprised at how much wood can be obtained from a single length of wood when re-sawn. It will definitely expand my creativity for such projects. Outlined is the first such project ...

Christmas Came Early!

998 days ago by Ryan Haasen | 12 comments »

A few days a ago, my dad came home my christmas present, a Grizzly Go153×2 17” Bandsaw! What a beautiful saw. It took about a half hour to take it out of the crate and about two hours to set it up. He also picked up some timber wolf blades or Viking blades is what they were called at that store – a 1/2” and a 3/16”. I put the half inch blade on and did not bother with the blade it came with. I began ripping so two by fours to test for drift, nothing. Then I re-sawed...
