The Perfect Day

10 hours ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

We all get them every once in a while. A day we consider to be 'perfect'.I am sure that description can very greatly from individual to individual, depending on peoples' goals, likes and taste. I think it even varies from day to day for everyone, as our lives and seasons are ever-changing as well.As I mentioned yesterday, I had an early eye doctor appointment that I had completely forgotten about. I had thought I posted the date in my Google Calendar, but apparently I did not, as ...

Open Apron Nesting Tables #1: An Interresting Commission

20 hours ago by shipwright | 17 comments »

Last fall I entered my “Music” table in the Sidney Fine Arts Show on Vancouver Island and while it didn’t sell, it did attract a lot of attention. After the show a local woman contacted me and asked if I would build her a couple of little end tables. I said “sure” and the process began. She brought me the pair of nesting end tables that she wanted to replace as an indicator of size and general design but she also showed me a photo of another set that she liked...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1389: The "Two-Minute" Blog

1 day ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday afternoon I received a phone call to remind me that I had an eye doctors' appointment in Digby this morning.  I must be getting old because I completely forgot about it. I also thought I set my Google reminders to remind me, but I guess I forgot that as well, or I did it wrong. In any case, I have to skeedaddle out of here today and it is supposed to be a beautiful and sunny day here in Nova Scotia. My sweetie thought it would be a great day to play "hookie" ...

The Shows #26: Central States Fair wrap up

1 day ago by Monte Pittman | 21 comments »

Although it started with a bang, I only really had one more big day. However, I still had the 2nd biggest week ever and I am having my biggest month ever. So would I have wanted to sell more? Of course, that’s the idea. But I can’t be disappointed with the results. I also have several of what I consider “very possible” custom orders. If most of them come through it will be a huge show for me. Another thing, is pricing. I have always been criticized for under pricing...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1388: 'Lazy' Weekend

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

It is hard to believe that another Monday is upon us. What I find even more difficult to digest is that it is the final week of August. It seems as if summer has just began and at least here in Nova Scotia, there were only a few days that I would consider to be 'hot'. But as I awake in the morning, I notice that it is darker each day. This morning when I got up the sun was barely peeking over the horizon. I know that soon it will be completely dark, and I will once again need a l...

Wooden Boat #1: Form Setup

2 days ago by Clay Ortiz | 7 comments »

I decided a little before last Christmas that I would take the plunge and build a wooden boat. My wife bought me a copy of Howard Chapelle’s book, Boat Building, as a Christmas gift. I read the book before deciding on the plan I wanted. I have built a lot of things from bird houses to 12,000 sq ft homes and this little boat is the most intimidating project that I can remember. It took me about three weeks to loft the lines. I would work a little bit then read a while then I would get fr...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #11: It's been a while--gluing up and finishing

2 days ago by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I haven’t written an entry for over two weeks, the combination of being on the road (I happen to be among the select few ever to ride in a commercial jet from Montgomery AL to Columbus GA, not that either airport was scheduled in my itinerary) and attending the wedding of the couple to whom this table will be given. Since the last entry, dry fit the whole table, decided what radius to put on the shelf on the waterfall edge (the inside of the leg is narrower than the shelf), and darke...
