My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1402: Busy Days are the BEST!

09-13-2014 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Those of you who know me know that my favorite season is quickly approaching. While I enjoy summer and even winter, I always think that autumn is the best time of year. I love the warm days and cool nights. I love the colors and crispness in the air. I also love seeing the beautiful foliage and colors that the season brings.I have many fond memories of this time of year. I always enjoyed school, as it was once again an opportunity to reconnect with friends that I missed seeing over the summer...

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #3: Finished Foyer Table and Tealight Holder, On to Dining Table Design

09-07-2014 03:55 PM by elbarneso | 0 comments »

I finally finished the foyer table – the top turned out great. Even though I was suprised / disappointed at the big knots during the resawing, they are what most people comment liking when they first see it. I attached the top with steel z-clips from woodcraft – 2 on each end since the ends were bowed up a little. After I finished the table, my wife (nonchalantly) mentioned how a tealight holder would be nice to put on the bottom shelf. So of course I had to build a custom ...

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 #1395: Good Things Are Worth the Wait

09-03-2014 11:33 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I will keep things short here today because I have writing to do. I know I promised that the reindeer and sleigh pattern would be ready today, and it may be later on, but I probably won't really have everything done, including the site update, until tomorrow (Thursday). Sometimes things just take longer than expected. I will say though that the pattern will really be a nice one. I spent the day yesterday working on the 26 step-by-step photos that I will include with it. That is ...

Maloof Low Back Chairs #3: Scraping and Sanding

09-01-2014 11:17 PM by Dave G | 4 comments »

After what you saw last time I got busy with the cabinet scrapers. I used three, primarily. The most useful was a very flexible straight one to get into the chair seat and flex around the leg curves. I had to use a french curve scraper on some of the seat curves. And a medium flex straight scraper was pretty handy too. I sharpened them all at the beginning and resharpened the flexible one once. I spent 9 hours scraping. Then I started sanding: 180, 240, 320, 400, 600 grits. ...

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" ...
