My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1296: Early Inspirations

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

I took the day off of writing yesterday because I wanted to really make a dent in the new projects that I have been working on. Sometimes I find myself getting lost in the ‘social media’ part of the day and it leads me down a path that sometimes may not be very productive. I don’t worry much about this, as I feel that I do make up for my time spent fooling around with my friends and customers on the computer. Besides, there usually isn’t a day that goes by when I am ...

Secret Dovetails: a bottom for the box

13 hours ago by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Almost got this box about sized up. Some tweaking at the corners, maybe. Time to add a bottom? Needs a groove made in the sides of the box, so A Plough plane to cut some 1/4” by 1/4” grooves. Plane just MIGHT be a tad older than me? I had a piece of pine scrap, almost the right sizes for the box. needed a rebate around the edges, though So, a Wards #78 set to take a bit of the top, er, bottom of the panel. Seems I had the panel a might too smooth and shiny. ...

Power Upgrade #29: After They Left

21 hours ago by Nate Meadows | 9 comments »

Ok, so turns out taking care of a sick wife, her taking care of me having a torn up body and brain and the two of us taking care of two kids takes more balancing than I thought.:) My ability to adapt has obviously been slowed since I was in the military. Anyway, what matters most is that we are moving ever forward! Thanks so much family for your patience! You guys rock! So, going back in time. When the men from the church came over to fill the trenches I was running around like a mad man t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1295: Walking Before Running

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

It has now been over twenty years since I first began scroll sawing. (I know! I don’t really FEEL like I am THAT OLD!) Even as I sat here to write that number down, I had to count a couple of times to make sure my number was correct. It seems like only yesterday when I hit the fifteen year mark, and now that the years have climbed into the twenties, it amazes me even more. I remember those first days of cutting so well. My friend Cari had a wonderful father who was an engineer and ...

Cherry book rack #2: Hours in Photo Shop

2 days ago by sandhill | 4 comments »

A few weeks ago I posted a project I had built that I am sure everyone has seen in the woodworking magazines as well as a few books and in the post I had shown my third book rack and yes I am tired of making this exact project but I cant stop. I like it and I’m hooked. I thought I would change it up a bit by adding a bit of Marquetry to the sides. I set out to find a design that would compliment the style as well as the wood which is cherry I want to do this in the form of an inlay on e...

Holly's Jasper #10: Holly's Jasper #10

3 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 2 comments »

Did some repair work today. Broke off a small piece of the jowl and almost let it go, but decided to do the full workup. homemade clamp for the chip, hand shaved inserts for the band saw over cuts. A little fitting, gluing, and tapping them home, then leaving them to dry did the trick. Shaving off the excess, and the repair is almost done….

Desk Repair #2: Routing the trim...

3 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Today, taking advantage of the 50° temperatures outside after another cold snap (yes, it snowed two days ago) I used my hand planes to knock down the slight lip on the maple support of the shortened desktop and the pine trim piece I glued up last time. It only took a few minutes – it took me longer to remember how to stand and hold the thing than it did to start the shavings flying. It’s been entirely too long since I was in the shop. Nevertheless, I quickly had a nice leve...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1294: Website Updated

3 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday I spent the day writing our bi-monthly newsletter and sending it out to our customers. We have been doing pretty well with gaining new subscribers as out business continues to grow. We are also happy that we seem to be figuring out how to send a proper newsletter so that the mail servers don’t view it as SPAM and block it. For a while, we were getting several hundred emails bounced back to us whenever we sent out an issue. This was annoying because not only did it clog up my...
