My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #635: What You See Isn't Always What You Get

03-07-2012 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am afraid that I don’t have many interesting things to talk about today. I spent the majority of the day yesterday working on photographs for the pumpkin pattern. I had shown the step-by-step pictures that I had taken earlier in the week and since then have taken more pictures to show the steps to painting the pumpkin faces. The results is quite a few pictures necessary for that one packet. In order for the pictures to be useful, they need to show the true color of what they are....

Inside-Out Ornament Tutorial #1: How to Make an Inside-Out Ornament

01-10-2012 12:32 AM by Donna Menke | 6 comments »

I have wanted to try to make one of these ornaments ever since I first saw them. They are so interesting, and everyone asks- “how did you do that”? I had trouble understanding a lot of the how-to descriptions, and even the videos were hard to follow. I found this one tutorial that I thought was good, and after about the 10th read-through I thought I’d grasped the concept.” of the first things I did wa...

Tips and Other Stuff #2: Update to using contact paper to apply scrollsaw and other patterns

06-09-2011 02:40 PM by cmckerliesr | 0 comments »

Hey!You know I just hate it when find out that I have not done or tried everything to make something work. In this case if you remember. I had previously posted a tip for using shelving or contact paper to stick patterns especially scroll saw patterns to wood. Well a couple of days ago I got my usual WoodWorkers Guild of America newsletter. Which if you do not get this newsletter I suggest signing up for it. At the bottom of the newsletter I saw “Intarsia Pattern Tip” done by J...

Holly pattern, Chip Carving, add color? #1: Chip carved plate, add color?

02-16-2011 06:21 PM by MyChipCarving | 21 comments »

I’m wondering what you think about my adding some color to this chip carved plate. From the start I’d planned on adding a light, transparent, oil-based green color to the leaves and red to the berries.But now that I’ve gotten this far in the finishing process, I really like the way it looks and I’m chickening out when it comes to doing anything else to this chip carving.What do you think?

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #197: Teaching Through Videos

12-17-2010 02:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Sometimes all it takes is just one person to ask a question for me to be inspired. I believe that is why networking and interaction with others who have similar interests is very important. There are many small bits of information that we have learned from our daily woodworking and other related crafts and after years of doing things, we take them for granted. I believe this is true for all of us. In the process of creating, we have performed these steps so many times that they become sec...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #188: Three New Videos!

12-08-2010 02:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 16 comments »

I accomplished quite a bit yesterday. Sometimes, when I am working on the office part of the business (correspondence, paperwork, etc.) it seems that I am treading water. I know my blogs aren’t as exciting to you all when I talk of the mundane parts of the operation of my business, but it is essential and necessary part of my job that helps me to expand and grow. I had some promising payoff yesterday that may be a very positive things for me. I almost don’t want to even mentio...

"Fold up" ironing board (reverse engineering) #2: Building a functional mock up

09-05-2010 02:01 AM by jeff_wenz | 0 comments »

So I know I need to work out the sliding mechanism. 3 goals here: 1. Make sure the components fit into the space I’m allocating for it.2. Ensure all the pieces work and it is easy to slide up and down.3. Make sure the ironing board is level in the down position. Here are all the components (minus the door which I will build as part of the Murphy bed complex). I built a wall (16” stud mockup) and starting assembling the pieces I had cut from my measurements in post #1...

Project SC #5: The long and winding road

08-14-2010 07:05 PM by BritBoxmaker | 23 comments »

Hello all. The first order of the day was to route the bottom pieces and the lipping slots in the inner sides OH! Problem. The lipping slots go right through the corner posts. I should have routed before I put these on. No matter there’s always the spare stock I always make. I cut the old posts off. Finish sanded and sealed the insides of all four sides and the top. As for the corner posts I made and glued new ones on. I made a bottom out of 3mm birch ply and glued ...
