Not to complex, but fun, perhaps adding a link to etc. Repeats, adding new links etc are ok etc. For all real woodworkers ! It’s time to start cranking out some gifts …. #1 blanket chest ....link ... #2 corncob holders … link ... 3 picture frame 4 paddy wacks #

Segmented Christmas Tree Ornament

12-12-2009 07:04 PM by darryl | 11 comments »

After completing the Segmented Vessel, I decided I’d make the segments on my next piece a little thinner than the 3/4” previously used. Since we are all in the Christmas spirit, I thought I’d make a new ornament for our tree this year. The segments in this piece are 1/4” thick, and this piece includes a total of 92 segments. Here’s the before picture of the ornament blank glued up on the lathe. After turning, sanding and the first coat of wipeon polyurethan...

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 #318: New Project Finished

04-23-2011 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Throughout the week of still catching up and making videos and probably thinking a bit too much, I did manage to complete my first project(s) for my submissions to the magazine for their Holiday issue. Last year I was fortunate enough to have several different projects and ornaments accepted. Between my partner Keith and myself we were well represented. I believe that it was my all time high as far as number of projects published with four. This year because of many reasons, I am only ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #503: New Ornaments!

10-26-2011 11:15 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday was an extremely productive day and I finished both my order for the large snowflake and also my new ornaments. It felt good to get so much accomplished. I don’t think I worked harder than I do on most days, but I actually reached the finish line on two things at almost the same time so there is a great feeling of accomplishment. Finishing up the snowflake puzzle wasn’t bad at all. I actually made two of them so one is sitting here on the shelf if anyone else decid...

Ghosts of Christmas Future #4: the ornaments

12-03-2010 06:40 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

ok, so 87 days ago I worked out (and blogged) the plan, and workflow to knock off a series of 100 similar turned ornaments. Similar in size and shape, but with a world of variety in the woods used. Rather than attempt another 30 projects in 30 days, 100 of the same seemed similarly challenging, but reasonable enough. I’d only really need to turn 3 a day for a month, plus a couple more on the weekends and I’d be all set. As I’ve previously mentioned, it’s the photogr...

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Those of you who read know that I frequently wish that my days had more hours in them, and today is the one day of the year that my wish actually comes true. A 25 hour day! 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 #867: Pretty as a Picture

11-06-2012 12:22 PM 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...
