My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1413: Welcome October!

10-01-2014 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is hard to believe that we are beginning a new month already! September seemed to pass by so quickly, and before we know it, we will be into the holiday season. It has been such a busy month for us here, and I am sure that is why the time flew by so fast. It seems that I have been going non-stop and one day just bleeds into the next. I am not complaining at all though, as I have been very happy that there have been so many opportunities ahead. After the closing of the magazine, I must...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1412: My All Season Tree - Halloween, 2014

09-30-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Many of you who read know about my little "all season" tree. It is a tall and slim tree that I keep up all year round and change the decorations to coordinate with the season. Even though we live in a small place, it is nice to have such a wonderful little tree to brighten things up and decorate with different things. Since Keith and I are always designing new ornaments and things, I never run short of things to adorn it with. In fact – I don't think I have ever had it loo...

Scroll saw projects #1: First project - Notre Dame Clock

09-30-2014 06:20 AM by whitcombbasses | 2 comments »

This is a first on more than one aspect. My first project blog and first serious scroll saw project. I bought my scroll saw about 3 years ago and hadn’t used it until a few days ago. It’s a Grizzly model and works fairly well for its price point. But anyways, just wanted to capture the build process on this elaborate fretwork for my current level of woodworking. Hope you follow along. This is on 1/4” ply and this is one of any holes I need to saw out. Hopefully I can get...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1411: "UFO's"

09-29-2014 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

This weekend was splendid!  I finally was caught up enough to do some things around the house that I have been meaning to do for quite a while. My little 'all season tree' is now beautifully decorated in a cute, Halloween theme (you will have to come back tomorrow to see that – I have too many photos to show today!) and not only did I do some major cleaning, but I cooked a great Sunday dinner and I plowed through a fairly large pile of "UFO's" and got them all...

Artemesia - Worlds Largest Craftsman Home

09-28-2014 08:04 PM by Jerry | 10 comments »

You will see some amazing joinery and craftsmanship in this slide show. Great for ideas… An ad man named Leonard Fenton has spent well over two decades now working on Artemesia, reputedly the largest Craftsman house ever built. And it is something. The 13,300-square-foot mansion in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood was built a century ago by Frederick Engstrum, a construction tycoon who built downtown’s lovely Rosslyn Hotel, according to a story last year in Los Angeles Ma...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1407: Not Quite "Time Off"

09-22-2014 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I suppose I need to reevaluate my definition of the meaning of having 'time off'. While I had a wonderful weekend, I had intended to take a couple of "me" days and just putz around the house here and do some things completely for myself. I also wanted to catch up on a couple of things like bringing out the autumn decorations (we don't have many, but I like them anyway) and changing my all season tree to a cool Halloween theme. After all, we are now into the last week of ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1406: More New Things - Time for a Little Break

09-19-2014 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was another full and busy day.  Not only did we finish updating our site, but I finished creating my pattern packet as well for the SLDP225 MUD Witches Boots.  It may sound silly to many, but I am really proud of not only the design, but also the pattern packet itself. I truly feel it was one of my best efforts and was quite an accomplishment for me to make. It isn't that the project is particularly difficult. As a matter of fact, I believe it is very easy. But...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1405: Site (almost!) Updated

09-18-2014 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a crazy/busy day, with a few unexpected twists.  Those of you who read regularly know how much I love my three beautiful cats (Richard, Pancakes and Coco) and how much they are part of my everyday life. Like most pet owners, I consider them my 'fur babies' and they are wonderfully special to me.Lately though, Coco (my beautiful black long-haired girl) has been feeling under the weather. She has been vomiting more than usual (long haired cats in the autu...

Just for Fun... #86: The Work continues...

09-17-2014 12:32 AM by littlecope | 14 comments »

After a busy week of work and life, last weekend allowed me a few hours to devote to this latest “Mystery Project”...Though it only took 3 1/2- 4 hours, the sides were finally joined sometime Saturday morning… The last side is the most work, as it requires two corners to be filed to fit… These larger sides don’t help, they’re harder to handle, so the sides were clamped to the router table to facilitate the fiing… I might have saved mys...
