My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1393: And Then There Were Five

09-01-2014 11:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I spent the day yesterday finishing up the remaining three poses of reindeer for my reindeer and sleigh vignette. Now all I need to do is assemble the two additional deer pattern packets and also the sleigh packet and I will be good to go. I had estimated that the sanding and assembly of the three deer would take half the day, and I planned to take the other half to kind of coast and do some things around the house, or some of my personal creating, but as usual I grossly underestimated myself...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1392: Don't You Love When That Happens?

08-30-2014 11:42 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Sometimes good planning really does pay off. I am not saying that everything went 'without a hitch', but in the end, the build on my new Christmas sleigh worked out pretty well. I am really pleased with it. When 'building' three dimensional pieces such as these, to me it seems like there is so much more involved than just cutting fretwork. While the fretwork design is a really important part of the piece, on something like this, it is just that – a part – and ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1389: The "Two-Minute" Blog

08-26-2014 09:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday afternoon I received a phone call to remind me that I had an eye doctors' appointment in Digby this morning.  I must be getting old because I completely forgot about it. I also thought I set my Google reminders to remind me, but I guess I forgot that as well, or I did it wrong. In any case, I have to skeedaddle out of here today and it is supposed to be a beautiful and sunny day here in Nova Scotia. My sweetie thought it would be a great day to play "hookie" ...

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #2: Foyer Table - bottom completed and top glued up

08-22-2014 01:10 AM by elbarneso | 2 comments »

Just a few pics and progress from this past week – I sprayed a few coats of GF pre-cat satin urethane on the base of the foyer table and glued that up. The finish turned out pretty good, although I had to resand the bottom shelf due to some bad sanding marks that I rushed and didn’t see the first time. I don’t have very good lighting in my garage, but I bought a cheap clip lamp and used it during the re-sand – I really should have bought one of these sooner, although t...

tea box #2: hinges are next

08-18-2014 10:21 PM by harum | 3 comments »

The lid separation went smoothly; mostly because the bottom was reasonably flat and sat square against the table saw fence. The only thing to clean up is the heavy burn marks on the lid side. The box side hasn’t got even a tiny mark. Why is that? The inside looks better than I have expected: the miters are tight and the corners are pretty clean. I have decided on butt hinges, the ones that have to be mortised into box and the lid; and, because the lid is heavy, a stop w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1384: Getting Back on the Horse (Or Reindeer, if you will!)

08-18-2014 12:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I am happy that last week is behind me. I can honestly say that it wasn't one of my 'favorite' weeks. It only confirmed my own beliefs that negativity and controversy can really take its toll on someone. For the first time since I could remember, I wasn't really excited about my work. I think when things really began to sink in, I realized the full scope of the events of the week and the implications for the future. I found it difficult to find my motivation, even though I sti...

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #1: Project Description / First Status

08-14-2014 04:49 PM by elbarneso | 2 comments »

I plan to use this blog to track my progress on a number of furniture pieces going in our dining/foyer area for our home that we purchased about 1 year ago. Our old home did not have a separate dining room, so we had no furniture to go in this room. I decided to build my own pieces to fill this space, as I have been doing a lot of woodworking over the past year and feel that confident (enough) that I have the skills, time, and vision to complete this. Here is a list of the pieces in the set a...

Wooden Spoon Material Experiment

08-13-2014 01:55 AM by bobkberg | 5 comments »

My wife loves her wooden spoons, but after many years, they warp and crack and eventually fall apart. So I started wondering what the best material to make a wooden spoon out of might be. I bought 10 small samples of hardwoods and cut them all to roughly the size that could serve as the bowl of a wooden spoon. So I have 10 pieces of wood roughly 5” long, 2 1/2” wide and 7/16” thick. I started with those and put them into a large stock pot with 4 gallons of water a...
