Make a 3D Christmas Tree Puzzle on the Bandsaw

12-20-2014 06:18 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have enjoyed my new bandsaw greatly. It was a great addition and there will be many more project coming off of it. This time I am making a small Christmas Tree Puzzle that is 2 levels high. The materials cost is extremely low because you can use a scrap 2×4. This project can get the kids involved or you can hog all the building fun for yourself. The approximate size of the the is 6″x3″x 1 1/2″. After a little paint it can go to the kids to give them some fun times. Click here for the vid...

Build a Decorative Sled

11-26-2014 06:53 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

Making decorations is fun. Woodworking, welding, and smithing are also fun. This time I combine them all and create a decorative sled. This is a very simple project that will get plenty of years use. Check the video out, leave comments, and make sure to like and subscribe! Click here for video. Also, does anyone know where the old embed code went to? I can no longer see it on YouTube to embed the video here.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1448: Different Strokes for Different Folks

11-20-2014 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a very busy day yesterday. But it was the kind of day that was also a great deal of fun. (I have had a lot of those lately!) I spent the majority of it decorating my new SLD485 Holiday Lights Damask ornaments that I previewed to you yesterday. I had cut several sets of them because I knew I wanted to play with them and experiment with many of the wonderful finishes that I had here from DecoArt and hot fix rhinestones from Rhinestone Canada.  I had several ideas of how I wanted to d...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1447: Slow and Steady

11-19-2014 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am the first to admit that I am not a fast worker. Be it painting, scroll sawing, sewing or anything else, I find that it usually takes me quite a bit longer than the average person to accomplish most things.I also admit that it used to bother me, but as I get older, it doesn't seem to do so as much anymore. As we accumulate large quantities of what we are making, adding to the pile just seems to . . . well . . . add to the pile and sometimes I feel that things lose their 'spec...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1439: New Patterns are Posted

11-07-2014 01:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I intended to write a post yesterday, but I had a Java update that played a little havoc on my computer. Nothing major, but their attempt to install unwanted software really kind of irked me. I hate when companies try to sneak something on to your computer that you don't want. It is deceptive and I think a very poor practice. Unfortunately, Java script is a program that most of us need to function online and because of that, we are forced to have it (and all that it brings with it) on our...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1430: Site Update In Progress

10-23-2014 11:22 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Lately we have been trying to keep updating our site about every two weeks. It seems with the holiday season approaching, we have lots of new things and we don't like to overwhelm everyone with too many new choices at a time. I guess it is a good problem to have. Since I do more painting things, they tend to take a little longer to complete than the scrolling patterns that I do. And even when I do scroll pieces, I like to offer different 'versions' so that our customers can c...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1421: Time Travel

10-13-2014 10:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

After celebrating Thanksgiving the past two days here in Canada, I feel refreshed and ready to get back to some serious designing. Even though it is still the early part of October, I know how quickly this time of year seems to pass as we busy ourselves for the upcoming holiday season. I am always amazed at how the pace seems to pick up this time of year and time passes even quicker than usual. It is sometimes difficult for me because I always seem to have so many different ideas that I ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1418: Finishing Up

10-08-2014 11:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I kept myself pretty busy yesterday finishing up the new projects that I created for the site update. Today I will be writing the instructions for them and hopefully getting a newsletter out either later on tonight or early tomorrow. We have been trying to send out a newsletter every other week or so, as we feel that time frame is comfortable for our customers and is a good goal to complete our next round of designs. Now that we don't have Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine to think a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1396: It's a Beautiful Day for an Update!

09-04-2014 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

While yesterday seemed like a LONG day in more ways than one (long stories – never mind!) at the end of the day when things were all said and done, I was able to sit back and look at the accomplishments and feel pretty good about things. There are some times when I really feel as if I move slow with things. I paint slow. I draw slow. I design slow. But as I look at all the projects that I have finished up, I can honestly look back with a sense of pride that what I have done is some...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1185: Re-painting Designs to Create the Pattern

12-07-2013 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a wonderful fun and relaxing day yesterday. Although – my idea of ‘relaxing’ may not be what you are used to seeing. I had an early dentists’ appointment. The tooth he fixed a couple of weeks ago was having some issues and he needed to do an adjustment on it. I do have a great dentist and he always seems to get me in quickly when I need him. This wasn’t an emergency though and I had called a couple of days ago and he was able to see me early yesterday...
