Creche #2 #1: Frank Lloyd Wright inspired Creche (Sort of)

01-29-2013 12:10 AM by greg48 | 3 comments »

Actually, the inspiration came indirectly through his son John, who developed Lincoln Logs ® and who’s design I slightly amended. OK, the joinery technique is really just half lapped joints, but I thought the inspiration tag sounded better. Anyway, to move on, I was “tasked” by the wife to help build a crèche (manger) for her figures by next Christmas (this is not a last minute project). Having a handful of 18” x ½” dowels leftover from a previous project, I thought that I might just desi...

Original #1: The story behind the beer cannon

01-21-2013 11:00 AM by JohnInHadley | 2 comments »

As my opening post, I think it important to thank Steve Ramsey over at for making hobbies fun again. Aside from the honest and clean entertainment value of Steve’s Friday videos, I find his message to be inspiring. I feel good about going out to the garage and making useless crafts of dubious quality instead working on improving the house. He has reminded me that I must improve myself before I can improve the world. And that I improve the world by impro...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #894: Simple Variations

12-03-2012 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

After quite a busy day yesterday, I am happy to say that I almost accomplished everything that I set out to do. For me, that is as good as anything. While I didn’t get my little tree changed over to Christmas yet, I did finish painting the new ornaments and charms for the pattern packet. I had to wait to take the final pictures for the packets, and I will be doing that today. I found that the DecoArt Craft Twinkle paint (the sparkle paint) that I used on these takes a bit of time ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #893: I Had an Idea . . .

12-02-2012 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

I made good progress yesterday working on the new ornament sets, and in the process, something came to mind. An epiphany if you will. Although I am sure that the idea has probably been addressed before, it had not occurred to me until yesterday. I felt as if the fog had been lifted and I had one of those “ah-ha!” moments we see played out in the movies. In any case, I think I may be on to something. In my never-ending quest to eliminate spray adhesive as much from my life as ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #890: Exchanging

11-29-2012 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have written about this before, and I probably will again. I once again participated in an ornament exchange that was set up by the scrollers on Steve Good’s forum. It is an event that I look forward to every year, as it gives me a chance to experience not only the work of other scrollers, but also enjoy the friendship and sharing that it entails. I love exchanges. I think that it is a great way to learn about fellow crafts people and own a little piece of something created by the...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #887: What Was I Thinking?

11-26-2012 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Any of you who know me know that I tend to be an optimist at times. You also know that I sometimes underestimate the time it takes me to do something. Well it seems that yesterday my optimism collided with my underestimation and I made the mistake of saying that my sled ornaments would be completed today. Oh, they are cut and sanded. Everything came out really nice I thought and worked like it should. As a matter of fact, I found a great deal of pleasure in cutting these ornaments out. Wh...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #886: Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

11-25-2012 01:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I woke up this morning and it was already light out. That alone told me that I had overslept. But there was a reason for doing so, as it was quite a ‘busy’ night. It seems that Keith’s cold has quite a hold on him. What started as a stuffy nose and some aches and pains now turned into a nasty cough. As a result, he was up much of the night trying to get comfortable and find a place where he could settle, as every time he laid down he began to cough. Of course, the cats...

Another video from the Grand River Woodturning Guild. This one is Christmas ornaments and the great thing about it is how scalable the ideas are.. you can do a lot or a little.. advanced or simple.
