Hello again. Lets start with a reminder of what the Inverted World pattern looks like I don’t know if you can see from this but the pattern consists of only 3 (three) different types of piece Labelled here as A, B and C.

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...

Bandsaw boxes #2: Tiger Tiger

04-07-2010 03:47 PM by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

Outside my comfort zone again. This is my second experiment with the bandsaw and patterns. Materials are Yew and Ebony. The patterns are about 50×120mm and 7mm thick. They’re more like Tiger and Anti-Tiger as one is obviously the negative of the other. Can’t make my mind up whether to make two individual boxes or slap them together lengthways to make one long pattern for something like a pencil box. Front sideBack sideSide by side Or I could slice them through ...

Project SC #4: Its like that and thats the way it is

08-12-2010 05:10 PM by BritBoxmaker | 31 comments »

So 1st fallback reached yesterday. I have to border the pattern. For the pattern glue-ups I used a traditional glue, PVA. This is good for this purpose but if I had mitred all edges (and the top) the tiny 1mm squares at each corner might not have held on at all. Worse still is the possibility that they would chip off over time. So bordered it is. Using 7mm strips of Purpleheart I set out the patterns to give me an overall idea of what it would look like. I then labelled everything s...

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 ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #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 ...

Proud of my Buddy #1: First attempt at carving

08-03-2007 12:59 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 29 comments »

Hi all; I always mention my buddy Bruce, and here’s a post dedicated to him, (even though he’s still alive) knock on wood. He has no experience in wood carving, other to set a hinge or something. When we were building the Philadelphia Pie Crust Table, he would work on parts like turning the post, laying out the pattern for the top, as well as cutting it out and hollowing the middle of it with a router. The 1 inch thick board becomes about 5/8 inch in the middle are...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #5: What's so bad about Monday, anyway?

06-07-2010 01:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well, here we are. Another weekend under our collective tool belts and starting off a new one. I sit here knowing when I check my Facebook account the usual barrage of grumblings and comments about Monday will be waiting there to greet me. It seems everyone has something negative to say about Monday. I fell like asking people “What did Monday ever do to you anyway?” My friends on Facebook are by now used to my bright and chipper attitude on Monday. I purposely turn it up a ...

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....
