My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1427: Monday, Monday

10-20-2014 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Once again we are here on a Monday.I have always loved Monday's, as they represent a fresh start to a new week and the promise of endless possibilities awaiting! I have always viewed Monday with enthusiasm and joy – even when I worked at other jobs outside my home or attended school. I suppose I always felt that every day – no matter what day of the week it was – would only be what we make of it, and I have always chosen to make it the best day I could. I don't see t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1425: Cutting, Cutting and more Cutting

10-18-2014 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

The past few weeks, I have really lived up to my name "Scrollgirl". It seems I have spent more time than ever at the scroll saw. But that is a good thing, right? It goes to show me that it may very well be possible to be able to design both woodworking and painting patterns and keep things in balance. It helps tremendously having a partner like Keith. He is so talented and when I meander over to the painting side of things for  a while, he is always busy keeping our scroll...

Today's blog will just be a short announcement that all the new patterns are available on our site.

There are some holiday patterns, as well as some for general occasions.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1417: Two New Candle Tray Patterns and a New Plaque

10-07-2014 11:20 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday I had a little change of plans. While I had intended to finish up the Gothic Bat Pillar Candle holders, I kind of got side tracked and decided to do some more cutting instead.  I had not added to my regular candle trays in quite a while – even though I have many more ideas, and when I created the pillar candle holders, I also thought that a similar design would translate to a candle tray as well. So the other morning when I was up early I decided to draw up a designs, as ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1416: Gone Batty Candle Holders

10-06-2014 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After another beautiful autumn weekend here in Nova Scotia, I am ready to start a brand new week. I had a very productive couple of days, as I was able to draw up two new candle tray patterns and work on my new project that I had shown you all on Friday. I also had several sizable wood orders which will be shipped out today so I spent much of the afternoon yesterday at the scroll saw. It's all good. I really enjoy providing wood for people. While it does take me away from designing a...

Modern Madness Table Build

10-05-2014 06:50 PM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

This modern table is made from 8/4 maple, and was finished using General Finishes water based stains. Because the top is the most visible part, I built it first. That way I was able to select the best looking boards to feature on the top and use the rest to build the legs.Visit my blog to read see the steps involved in how I created this Custom TableYou can see completion photos on my website Custom Modern table

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1412: My All Season Tree - Halloween, 2014

09-30-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Many of you who read know about my little "all season" tree. It is a tall and slim tree that I keep up all year round and change the decorations to coordinate with the season. Even though we live in a small place, it is nice to have such a wonderful little tree to brighten things up and decorate with different things. Since Keith and I are always designing new ornaments and things, I never run short of things to adorn it with. In fact – I don't think I have ever had it loo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1411: "UFO's"

09-29-2014 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

This weekend was splendid!  I finally was caught up enough to do some things around the house that I have been meaning to do for quite a while. My little 'all season tree' is now beautifully decorated in a cute, Halloween theme (you will have to come back tomorrow to see that – I have too many photos to show today!) and not only did I do some major cleaning, but I cooked a great Sunday dinner and I plowed through a fairly large pile of "UFO's" and got them all...

Finishing my bottom

09-28-2014 12:19 AM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

Many times as furniture makers, we will put a finish on the underside of a tabletop to prevent it from warping or cupping. The theory being, if you put the same finish on the top as you do the bottom the moisture transfer will be equalized on all sides, helping to prevent wood movement. Regardless whether or not this theory is true, there are other reasons to finish the bottom of your tabletop.Continue reading on my blog to see the real reason why I finish the bottom of my tables.
