My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #53: "You Know, It Don't Come Easy"

1463 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well, I’ve done it. I made it to the other side. Sitting here next to me on the table is the final pattern for the autumn catalog. The wood is prepped (a beautiful piece of 5/8” birch), the pattern is completed, and I all have to do is my favorite part of spending a couple of hours at the scroll saw and cutting it out and finishing it. That’s the easy part as any designer can tell you. It’s funny, but at 8:13 last night when the printer was spitting out the fina...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #28: Another New Project in The Works

It’s pretty quiet around here today. It’s one of those days when I can’t wait to get to the scroll saw, but it is only 7am and I don’t dare until another couple of hours. I was able to finish another drawing last night of a fretwork liner that I am going to market to set under the large jar candles.

I did a lot of looking around on the computer and was in one of those phases where I have several things that I want to do and didn’t quite know where to start.

Finally Learning SketchUp

1696 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

Computer Challenged I had just bought my MacBook in 2006 and was still learning how to use it when I bought the pro version of SketchUp. I had grand delusions of doing all of my design work on the computer. I refer to this as a delusion because with running my own remodel business, learning how to use my first computer, and learning SketchUp I did not have enough time. There was just too much to learn at one once, I had no reference point for understanding the principles of computers or ho...

2297 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 10 comments »

Hey Everybody, I just figured that i would do an update on the design. this is a really make shift video as i just threw it together tonight. it goes through all the major design aspects though of the bottom of the armoire. Well i hope that everyone likes it. So i hope everyone liked it. As i said if you have any comments or suggestions just leaves a message. the drawer supports are probably overkill but i want this to stand the test of time. As i also said i will try to finish ...
