My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #22: Random Thoughts on Friday . . . .

06-25-2010 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Some weeks I just don’t know where the time goes. I can’t believe it is Friday already. It seems that life is just whirling by with each day getting shorter. I look back on this past week, though and I did accomplish a lot. Some people were asking me what I was working on next, as they said they haven’t seen a new project in a while. I did a mental search and realized that the last time I cut was last Thursday or so when I cut the three frames. I have done some drawing...

A question...?

06-25-2010 12:44 PM by degoose | 48 comments »

I have a real dilemma here… I have been blogging about what I do for a while now and have had lots of enquiries about teaching how I do things… Most are from overseas… That makes it non viable…as such.. I mean in an actual school environment.. I am not in the position to run a school although I do have a few possible students here in Caboolture.. so local may be ok.. I will have to check out the requirements for running a school from my shop… etc… what I w...

Table saw upgrade #1: Planning

06-21-2010 04:56 PM by dedalo | 16 comments »

Hi! everyone! I’m planning / building an upgrade to my table saw. I live in argentina so tools are very expensive, I started with a chinese very “cheap” table saw (usd 200+) and now I’m trying to upgrade it. I live so far the states that importing a complete incra system is out of the question. So started with some alluminium profiles to build something like 80/20 I saw here. I cannot get the slider systema around. Now the plan is to mix the profiles I have with an inc...

Last year (July 2009) I was diagnosed with stage 4 (terminal) colon cancer. I had metastasis to my liver and lymph nodes. The doctors told me to get my final affairs in order, and that I might not live through the end of the year. Well, clearly I have managed to stay here a bit longer then expected. Thanks to the good Lord for providing me with the people I needed to beat the cancer back, and the attitude that was required to help it all come together. I was told by my oncologist that there w...

Marble tower #1: Working from a set of plans

06-10-2010 09:41 PM by Woodcanuck | 1 comment »

This is one of those well intentioned projects that started and got put on hold for many varied reasons/excuses. I’ve decided I just have to finish it before my daughter is too old to be interested. Otherwise, I’ll be sitting the playroom losing my marbles all by myself. I saw these plans years ago in a Lee Valley flyer and went out and bought them along with the kit that supplies the ball bearings (marbles), xylophone keys and bell. Here’s the picture from the catalog...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #8: Necessity Breeds Invention

06-10-2010 02:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It’s funny how innovative we can be when we have to. I grew up with modest means and learned early in life not to waste things and to take care of what I have. Things didn’t come easy for us so we had to use what we had and make it last. I don’t see anything wrong with that. I think it is a good way to think for many reasons. I had a friend who used to tell people he loved to lend me his tools because when he got them back, they were cleaned and looked like new again....
