My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #52: Almost There

07-25-2010 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I slept in a bit on account that it is Sunday. I actually woke up at my usually time and rolled over and had ‘one more sleep’. It felt good because it seems that it has been a really long time since I have done that. I think that sometimes the mind set of slowing down helps actually makes us more productive. I don’t quite understand it or know how it works, but it seems that way anyway. It feels like a bit of autumn this morning. I know people aren’t quite ready f...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #51: Quality is Better Than Quantity

07-24-2010 01:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I really love the discussions and thoughts that you all send me on what I write about. It gets me thinking in so many different directions and it gives me a perspective on my work that it is impossible for me to have here on my own. I received so many great ideas in the past couple of days regarding striking a balance with work and the level of designs and not getting burned out. It is as if we are all sitting here having a cup of coffee and discussing these things. There are so many typ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #50: Do You Hear What I Hear?

07-23-2010 01:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I really appreciate the nice things that everyone said about the Autumn Pumpkin Candle Tray. I was very happy with how it came out. On paper, it wasn’t too impressive but when I started getting it cut, I saw that it would be nice. It may be my favorite of the trays to date, even though I like the bat one so much. I really like it though. It is funny, but I keep going back and just looking at it sitting there on the table. I guess I am proud. I have a few painted pieces that are lik...

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #3: My 21st Century Bench Revisited #3:

07-20-2010 10:43 PM by fineamerican | 1 comment »

The Glue Dance Day 1Everything is all ready for glue up. This is always much more fun with a friend, but I have my Lab who provides my much needed supervision. So here is all of the stock Ive got, and remember it was free so my “Kitchen Sink” bench top will be mostly cherry, with a little maple and walnut for added flavor.I used every clamp I could find that of course was big enough. My battens were 2×4 wrapped in wax paper to keep everything as flatt as possible Day 2-I was...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #47: A New (Self) Challenge

07-20-2010 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I really appreciated the positive feedback on the Gothic Bat Candle Tray yesterday. It was a wonderful boost and some great suggestions were made. I am extremely intrigued by the Inlace Metal Dust that was suggested and I think that I have got to get my hands on some. Getting it here in Canada may be a challenge though as a friend of mine who does beautiful turning told me about it a while back and I couldn’t find any. I guess I have to hit Google and see what I can see. That would ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #46: Scrollgirl's Gone Batty!!!

07-19-2010 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It is great to feel as if I really accomplished something. Although I didn’t finish everything on my laundry list of things to do yesterday, I got to most everything I wanted to done and at the end of the day I made the choice to call it an evening and just chill. I felt satisfied that I did enough for the day and wanted to sit back and enjoy the moment. I played some scrabble, watched a show or two and went to bed kind of early because I wanted to be refreshed and well-rested when I...

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #2: My 21st Century Bench Revisited #2:

07-18-2010 12:10 AM by fineamerican | 4 comments »

The new saw bench is working out great. Very strudy, with no side to side wobbling. The saw Im using was given to me by a friend. Its a old Disston with one missing tooth. It cuts very straight, and very quick to my surprise. The ends of my cuts are farily square, for someone who doesnt have alot of time behind one of these. I think this bench will be a great exercise in using these larger hand saws. From the look on my face one could gather that hand tools can replace a membership to a gym ;...

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #1: My 21st Century Revisited

07-17-2010 08:14 PM by fineamerican | 3 comments »

My first attempt at recording my thoughts, hopes and wishes on a work bench have changed and today Ive begun to bring forth my ideas into my shop. One of the things about woodworking as you may have found out for yourself, is sometimes in order to accomplish one goal, along the way your faced with sub tasks if you will that must be completed before the main goal can be reached. For me that was a saw bench. You may wonder why I need a saw bench to build my work bench and the answer is this. My...
