My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #7: Carving Roses wasn't very Rosie!

01-22-2008 10:06 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 11 comments »

The first Rose handle I carved, didn’t give me any trouble, but I wasn’t satisfied with the light color of the sapwood. So I decided to go with the darker heartwood. I cut some rose patterns for a couple of Roses. I started carving a couple of flower petals, & snap! the flower broke off of the 3/8” stem. So I decided to go with a 1/2’’ stem, & the same thing happened, SNAP! The burly heartwood is kind of brittle. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

Windsor Institute- Nantucket Fan Back

03-10-2009 04:14 AM by F Dudak | 4 comments »

Hello all, Just wanted to touch base with you all and let you know that I am in NH taking another class with Mike Dunbar in beautiful snowy Hampton. I arrived from PA in the early evening yesterday after 60 degree weather only to wake up to a snowy morning. The funny part is that I loaded my road bike into my car in case I would get some riding in on the beautiful coast…not. We worked on the seat and the crest today and I believe we will be finishing the seat and legging up the chai...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #779: Is It Winter Yet???

08-04-2012 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

My goodness it has been a hot summer! While it is slightly warmer than normal here in Nova Scotia, in reading posts from my friends all over the USA, it has been brutal. Summer, as many of you know is not my favorite season. I still maintain that I would rather ‘bundle up’ to get comfortable than to be nearly naked and still hot. Those of you who look at me with disdain when I express my love of winter need to remember these horridly hot days you are going through now before y...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #794: Enjoy the Process

08-19-2012 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As time goes on, it seems that the world is migrating more and more towards instant gratification. We are continually looking for ways to have things completed in record time, with fewer steps and the least amount of effort. While I realize that this is not news to anyone, I just wanted to bring it up to make my point. While doing things more quickly and efficiently can be a very positive thing, I sometimes find myself wondering what the hurrying is all about. Yes, I understand when we a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1129: Site Update with New Patterns Available

09-12-2013 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I am happy to say that we got all the new items posted on the site and everything is updated. Things have been fast and furious here and we find that we are updating a little more often. Our usual schedule was to do so about twice a month, but it seems that we have so many new things coming out that every other week is a bit better. I think it is better to have slightly more frequent updates rather than a longer time in between where we have so many new things that it may become overwhelmin...

001: maple lazy susan #1: everything up to, but not including the finishing work

02-22-2009 04:07 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

This is a very simple one. I was hired by our office manager to slap together a lazy susan in maple, to match the cabinets at work in the kitchen. It’s going to hold coffee cans, filters, spoons, and other coffee-time trappings. It can’t get much simpler. I biscuit joined 5 17” lengths of jointed 1×4 maple from the same 8’ plank, making a roughly 17” square, cut out a 16”+ circle, sanded it up and routed the edge to clean it up to a more perfect 16&...

Entertainment Unit #1: Design

01-30-2011 03:06 AM by agianni | 0 comments »

A few weeks back, my sister-in-law asked if I would build then an entertainment unit. Currently they have shelves below their wall-mounted flat-panel, but their little one is just starting to walk, and keeping components on the shelves is no longer a reasonable option. The space is very shallow (about 12”) due to an archway on the adjoining wall and moderately wide (about 36”). They just couldn’t find anything that would work, even if they were willing to spend big bucks. So...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #494: "Oh, Dear! Oh Dear! I Shall Be Late!"

10-17-2011 05:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up this morning at 4:48 am. I knew I had a lot to do this morning, but opted to close my eyes for just a bit more anyway. After all, on Sunday I got up around five and didn’t go to bed until almost midnight. Surely I would get everything done. I woke up a second time around 5:50. This time I got up and got moving. I was watching my coffee in the microwave at exactly 6 am and thinking about all that I needed to accomplish before leaving the house this morning. I woul...

So I delivered the tabletops tonight to the coffee shop and helped my friend install them. It was very gratifying to see this big project come to a successful end. They seemed genuinely pleased with their purchase. Now I’m sharing with you, my lumberjock friends.
