Amazing tool for designing awesome end grain cutting boards!

06-19-2017 03:01 PM by jaketodaro | 6 comments »

I build this web-based tool to design cutting boards. It was inspired by cbdesigner, but is web based and supports many different types of patters beyond the basic checkerboard style patterns like chevrons, basket-weaves, pinwheels, and more. Try it out and let me know what you think! http://www.cuttingboarddesigner.com/

No blueprint, just a fabrication and a model.

It was made to comb mail #1: A mahogany foundry pattern

02-17-2017 01:01 AM by Patternguy | 8 comments »

A picture story about building a pattern. 10 years ago, I was the CAD/CAM guy for a pattern shop. We also had a plaster molding shop and an aluminum foundry, where we pressure cast aluminum match plates. 10 years before that, I was on the bench, building the wood master patterns that went on to become match plates. 20 years before that, I was serving a Pattern maker’s apprenticeship in an iron foundry. The master I learned from once ran General Motors, “Tech Center”...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1781: Some Distractions and an Update

09-27-2016 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As some of you may have noticed, I haven't been posting as regularly as you all may have been used to. It seems that the past couple of months have been a bit unsettling for me and I have been a little bit distracted. I don't know if reading about our move is becoming tiring to you all or not. I hope it isn't. I am finding that settling in has taken much longer than I have anticipated and there is really no way around being distracted. After all, both living and working from ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1778: A Wild and Crazy Start to the Week

09-19-2016 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

OK – so it hasn't been that 'wild and crazy'. But it is barely 10am here and I feel as if I have put in nearly a full day already. All my mail is organized, my desk is clean, and the mail is just about ready to go out the door. It is a good start to the week. I also already have been to the gym this morning. While I am not one of those people who feels the need to report every time I go to the gym, I find that today it was somewhat significant. I have been playing '...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1773: Site Update and Newsletter

09-08-2016 11:22 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

This morning something occurred for the first time since moving to our new home. I awoke and it was still pitch dark outside. I admit that I had a somewhat fitful night. I am not sure if it was the excitement of the day or thoughts of the days ahead or the warm humidity of the evening that was the cause. Maybe it was a bit of everything. Perhaps it is that I am feeling a bit more comfortable in our place here and things are (finally!) getting back to normal. I don't know. I am o...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1767: Plays Well With Others

08-25-2016 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Aristotle said "The whole is more than the sum of its parts." While most of us know that in the literal sense that statement is incorrect, figuratively I think it has a lot of merit. The way that I interpret it is that we accomplish a great deal more working together with others than we can accomplish individually. I am seeing evidence of that lately in so many aspects of my work. Since Keith has come to be a my partner, our business has soared. Not only is it easier to sh...

Originals #1: Cupcake Box

11-10-2015 12:36 AM by Sioranth | 0 comments »

So, I’m having a bit of woodworking ADD lately while trying to work on holiday gifts. I have a million things to do so of course I’m procrastinating. I decided to attempt making my own pattern and went with a simple cupcake box. I’ve seen the ones that are round and look like actual cupcakes, but I wanted mine to be a flat box with a sort of intarsia top. I drew up the pattern in Inkscape and started cutting. The box is being glued at the moment so I’ll cut it tomorrow...
