My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1308: A New Scroll Sawing Blog and a Free Pattern

05-03-2014 10:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was feeling a bit under the weather yesterday and not quite myself. It was nothing to worry about, and I think it was just a passing thing as today I feel much more 'normal'.  Fortunately, it doesn't happen often, as I accomplished very little in the way of work.  I suppose though that a good rest was needed as it seemed to have done the trick and today should be a great day. As a result, I have no progress reports on what I am working on.  I guess that goes ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1189: New Free Painting Pattern on My Site

12-11-2013 12:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

These past several weeks have been passing by like a whirlwind. There have been several deadlines to meet and that alone seems to have made time pass quickly. I usually find myself wondering where the day has gone somewhere around 4pm when dusk starts to settle in. So many people don’t like the winter months. They don’t like the darkness, which makes the days appear even shorter. They don’t like the cold or the snow and ice. They don’t like the cloudy bleakness tha...

Large Carved Frame #3: My Experimental Technique

08-20-2013 06:38 PM by Rex B | 2 comments »

Now for the fun part! When we left off last time I had 4 identical pieces with their outer profile finished. Because I had a smooth, continuous profile, I was fairly confident that I could use a single-point guide and follow the profile with my router. My workbench is large and flat enough, so I needed was a pair of “skis” to elevate the router off the bench. Here’s what I came up with: Time to give these new jigs a try. With the blank clamped to the be...

Large Carved Frame #2: Getting Started with the Build

08-20-2013 06:17 PM by Rex B | 0 comments »

I knew my wife wanted to paint the frame, so why spend money on expensive hardwood? I bought an 8’ long 2×10 (if I remember the size correctly) and let it acclimate in my shop for a week or two. I started by planing the board down to just over an inch thick, then I cut out the four pieces I would need – approximately 4.5” x 39”. I was able to cut around most of the knots in the wood and really you could never tell these came from construction lumber. The first ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1105: A Very Full Day

08-14-2013 11:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Yesterday my day started off as many days do, but by the time I went to sleep, it had snowballed into a day that was very full and somewhat exciting. It just goes to show that we never know what will come along and no matter where we are in our lives – good or bad – things are constantly changing. But that makes our lives exciting, doesn’t it? I find I am my happiest when I am my busiest. There is part of me that likes the comfort of ‘routine’ and knowing wh...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #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...
