My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #236: Calm

01-25-2011 02:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I can honestly say that things have been going fairly smoothly around here. It makes for a good life, but also a quiet blog. I finished compiling my submission list to the wholesaler yesterday and sent it on its way. We have almost 20 new designs to offer between us, which isn’t too bad considering that the last deadline was only about two months ago. If you also consider that the holidays were thrown in there and I spent a bit of time on gifts, we didn’t do too badly. I ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #235: Two Designs Completed

01-24-2011 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Well, the cats are still alive. When I awoke this morning, all the electronics seem to be working. Nothing was chewed. No one got sick on the floor (that I have seen.) The water dish was only dragged slightly from its normal place, with only a little water spilled. It’s going to be a good day! :D There is another 4-5 inches of snow on the ground this morning (more flurries!) and it is really looking pretty outside. I need to go to the post office today though to mail out an order....

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #11: Almost there...

01-24-2011 06:00 AM by Don | 6 comments »

All that’s left is drawer pulls, the bottom shelfs, and a few more coats of finish. I decicded to stick with a natural finish and I’m glad I did but the tops came out way lighter than the rest of it. I will probobly put some dye on it to help it blend better. Here’s one of the tables with the first coat of finish:

My new Roubo #9: Leg tenons done

01-24-2011 05:56 AM by JasonD | 3 comments »

I got the leg tenons cut throughout the week and got them trued up tonight. I don’t own a shoulder plane, but I have a Stanley rabbet plane that did the job. I’m going to start working on the stretchers tomorrow; short ones first, then the long ones. I can’t believe that I’m finally getting close to being able to assemble the main structure. Don’t know how much shop time I’ll get over this next week. One of my students has started scheduling regul...

New Yankee Blanket Chest #10: Painted and Finished

01-24-2011 05:38 AM by HungryTermite | 8 comments »

I put 4 coats of flat dove white paint on the outside and 4 coats of satin wipe-on poly on the inside, except for the cedar on the bottom which is unfinished. I think the flat paint was a bad idea. It seems to get dirty if I even look at it funny. Some day I will probably use this chest as a test run for doing some stencil work so maybe that will cover up or blend in some of the dirt. Overall view: View with the lid open: View showing the cedar lining: I also used two of these ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #234: A Rocky Start - But It Will Get Better, Right?

01-23-2011 03:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Today is already one of ‘those days’. Within the first hour of getting out of bed, I already found several mishaps that I had to deal with. First of all, I came to my computer to read my mail and I noticed my Wacom pen tablet wasn’t working. At first I thought nothing of it, as the USB plug sometimes pulls out a bit and just needs to be pushed in. But that wasn’t the case. Upon further inspection, I realized that my cat Coco had chewed through the wire. She goe...

This Week In the Shop #1: One Project & Class Descriptions

01-23-2011 12:18 AM by WhiskeyWaters | 0 comments »

Good week for struggles and not-quite-there-yets in the woodshop this week. Three projects left the floor complete. The first, chalkboard that has been wind-blown, vandalized and otherwise destroyed three times. We’ll see if it sticks this time. Here’s the link to the photo- for some reason the picture loader isn’t working…. The other two projects I failed to take a picture of. On Mon or Tues, I’ll put up a picture of those two projects. spent a majority of my t...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #3: Everything Includes the Scrollsaw

01-22-2011 04:56 PM by jerrells | 0 comments »

It is interesting, to me, that once I have started this process now everything includes some element of the scrollsaw. My sister-in-law needed a new 4” x 4” mail box post. You know, simple get some 4×4’s and half-lap them together or purchase one of the ready made kits. NOPE! Not this time and not me, now. Yes I purchased the 4×4’s (recycled wood) and I half-lapped (yes, I got that joint TOOO tiight) them together. Now comes the fun part. I included victor...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #232: Cutting on New Trays Completed

01-21-2011 03:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I spent most of the day yesterday cutting out the two new candle trays. I can honestly say that it was quite a pleasure to do so. Many times people say that they wouldn’t want to do woodworking for a living because it will take the fun out of it. I can see their point, but for myself, it is an extra bonus to be able to get paid for doing something that you absolutely love to do. I suppose that is why I am here. :) There are so many different aspects to the business of woodworking t...
