Small shop adventures.

5 hours ago by BrockF | 1 comment »

The construction of the new garage last fall gave me a clean slate for setting up my small shop. The lone survivor in terms of shop furniture from that leaky, damp mess was my workbench. It survived several months in public storage and the trip back and forth. The top is solid and heavy and I dont like to waste. It reminded me of how far I have come in my wood working and how much more I still have to learn. I scrapped the base but kept the top, thinkin about how best to use it. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1387: This and That

14 hours ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had kind of a 'catch up' day yesterday. With all that had been going on lately and with getting the new patterns up on the site, I was beginning to feel a bit frazzled. So many things to do and so many directions to head. I didn't know what to do first. I find that if I don't give myself a little break from things, I really start to feel it. Then I wind up running in circles and becoming overwhelmed. After doing my usual chores, I decided to pick up a paint brush a...

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #2: Foyer Table - bottom completed and top glued up

1 day ago by elbarneso | 2 comments »

Just a few pics and progress from this past week – I sprayed a few coats of GF pre-cat satin urethane on the base of the foyer table and glued that up. The finish turned out pretty good, although I had to resand the bottom shelf due to some bad sanding marks that I rushed and didn’t see the first time. I don’t have very good lighting in my garage, but I bought a cheap clip lamp and used it during the re-sand – I really should have bought one of these sooner, although t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1386: Finding Success

1 day ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I felt really good about things yesterday. After spending the day putting together the SLD475 Nevermore pattern packet and completing the newsletter and latest site update, I felt I finally could take a breath. It was around dinnertime by then, and after the roller coaster that we had been on for the past couple of weeks, it felt good to be (at least for the moment) caught up and allow myself to just 'be'. I had entertained the idea of working on some ornaments that I h...

The Shows #25: Central States Fair start of day 5

2 days ago by Monte Pittman | 12 comments »

Of course with sales you go into every show hoping that you sell everything you have. Then the show and reality bothstart. This year, the rreality started late. The weekend was huge. I was able to sell enough Saturday and Sunday to easily pass the break even point. Sunday alone I sold more than the entire week of the rally. I was figuring on being sold out quickly this week. Then came Monday. Oh the people are there, they simply aren’t looking for anything. Still having a good week, bu...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1385: Making Lemonade

2 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Thoughout my life, I have practiced and somewhat mastered the art of finding good in most anything. Even when something bad occurs, I have myself trained to try to find a positive slant in it. Some people call this 'optimism' and I suppose that is as good a word as any to describe my attitude toward life. I think it is a good habit to follow, as looking for something positive in a even a not-so-good situation often changes our entire disposition and more often than not, we surprise ou...

New shop build.

3 days ago by WalnutRidge | 4 comments »

My family and I moved recently, and with the move I lost my shop. (Heartbreaking I know). But the sun is on the horizon. In about 45 days a new shop build will begin. So hopefully I can remember to take pics and updates along the way. I’m having the building put up as well as concrete. But from there I will be doing the wiring (with the supervision of a friend who is way smarter than me. ) insulation, and sheeting. Also plan on having some outlets in the floor for table saw, planer, and...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1384: Getting Back on the Horse (Or Reindeer, if you will!)

4 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I am happy that last week is behind me. I can honestly say that it wasn't one of my 'favorite' weeks. It only confirmed my own beliefs that negativity and controversy can really take its toll on someone. For the first time since I could remember, I wasn't really excited about my work. I think when things really began to sink in, I realized the full scope of the events of the week and the implications for the future. I found it difficult to find my motivation, even though I sti...
