My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #941: Moving Right Along . . .

553 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am happy to say that yesterday turned out to be a very productive day. While Kieth and I both needed scroll saw time, I had plenty to do while he was cutting to keep me busy. I spent the morning working on the final touches for the article that I wrote on different methods to apply the pattern to the wood for scroll sawing (which will be featured in the May issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine) and picked my wood piece for the set of masks that I was scrolling out. I chose a ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #241: Pictures!!

1277 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I really made good headway yesterday. Today I am in the home stretch of things and it is going to be really fun to see all four of these trays come together at once. I have never really done four at a time like this, but since they are all kind of different styles, it is rather exciting. I will get right down to business and show you where I am at with everything. I took pictures this morning, but nothing here is finished or even sanded for that matter. I do sand things to be pretty sm...

Exercises in Artisanship #25: Practices in Spoonology: Part four

687 days ago by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

So my business of country spoon sloyd craft carries on. Forgive me if my tales on this exploration have become boring, I realize there is not a lot of joinery going on. I am closing in as I enter the words here for session 4 of 5 of this spoon blog and have really made some nice strides. My greatest findings have been using the soil I live on to adventure more deeply into the woods and come out with new species I have never worked with before such as Hickory, Black Walnut, and Black Locust...

Notes from the workday. #8: Hickory travertine entryway

1326 days ago by vicrider | 7 comments »

Well, I’ve been absent from LJ’s for quite a while helping friends and relative’s around the state do remodel work on their homes. I thought I would share a couple things we worked on. First up is an entryway of 1X4 hickory flooring inlaid with 18” travertine tile. The space is 6’x10’ and the Mrs. wanted the pattern to be set on the bias. Neither my pal Ken nor I had ever done a mixed media floor like this so it took us nearly a day to just plan how w...

Progress of a self taught cabinet maker #6: Another Reason to hate finished handles.

1179 days ago by RGtools | 6 comments »

I needed a new handle for my hewing hatchet, I have way too many projects right now to build one so I broke down and shelled out the 6 bucks for one. I always sand off the finish on my handles so I can just apply oil, the tool just feels better that way. It removes the bugs too.

Making A Sewing Box..

911 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 6 comments »

Right after Christmas, my Grandfather asked me if I could make a Sewing box for his special someone. She loves to sew as much as we love to woodwork. During the building of the sewing box, the origional design had to be changed due to the knife hinge failure. They just couldnt hold up.. so after rethinking things a little. the final outcome turned out well and she loved the sewing box.. Here are two small videos showing the hinge issue as well as the outcome. YOu can go to my Projects...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #87: "The Grizz"

1431 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am still kind of slow today. It is funny how you go away for only a day and it takes you several to catch up again. I am not complaining though. It is good to be missed. Not only by the cats, but also by friends and others. It was funny but when I left on Friday morning, there was one email in my mail box. I was totally caught up on correspondence and getting back to people that I needed to talk to and all. When I got home, there were over 40 things there for me. About half of it was...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1241: Wonderful Gifts from a Dear Friend

172 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Today is going to be a very busy, but fun day! I worked yesterday on my new project and got much of the base things done on it and today is the “fun” part of letting my brushes fly and make it into something special. I hope to have things close to being ‘finished’ by the end of the day – at least to a certain point. Our ‘work day’ was cut a bit short yesterday because we went to Keith’s moms for an incredible lobster dinner. Keith’s s...

Practices in Spoonology: Part three

693 days ago by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Well I thought it might be best this evening to get to the shop and keep up with the spoon practicing and see where are am at with things. I felt good and energized after a fine meal of venison burger, potatoes and greens. I have to say that deer meat is a terrific source of rocket fuel and lucky for me I have no better source than my uncle Topper who lives in the cold hills of the upstate NY. When it comes to some well hunted eats there’s no better of a choice than Toppers freezer for some d...
