My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #372: Two New Designs

06-16-2011 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Finally it is a day when I woke up to a clear sky and sunshine. It has been quite overcast and rainy for the past several days. I think the last time it was sunny out was Saturday when I washed the car. I have been waiting for a bright day so I can take some pictures of the latest projects with some natural light. Usually I use artificial light, but I like to experiment with both, as some things just look better with natural light. One day I will have to get some photography lights, but n...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1293: New Projects on our Site

04-16-2014 11:20 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It was a very tumultuous night here in Nova Scotia. I don’t think I heard wind like that in all the years that I had been living here. At least it was warm though, as we heard that nearly everyone located west of us was once again experiencing snow. I fully expected to wake up to more snow on the ground, but it is still very warm and raining. The wind gusts were fierce. They awoke me several times, as the house was actually shaking. At about 3:30 in the morning, we heard our recycl...

Wine Rack Expedition #9: Inlay, wood burning and the finish line.... YAY :)

06-25-2009 03:17 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well folks, it has been quite a while since I’ve been able to get on here and talk about the project. If you haven’t read any of the previous blogs, this is a wine rack that I built for my brother’s wedding. If you want the basic construction, see the prior posts. From here on is the little decoration details… I hope I don’t have too many pictures ;). I think I’ll let the pictures do some of the talking for me but I want to capture the whole process....

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1360: My Version of the Seahorse Pattern

07-16-2014 12:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am happy to say that I had a wonderful day yesterday. I was able to get my emails under control early on and I did have a chance to work on the Tracy Moreau seahorse design that I had shown you all in yesterday's post. We also had the bonus of Keith's mom coming to visit, as well as a pop-in visit from our friends Bernie and Ellen. Keith's mom makes the best potato salad in the world and she brought some to share for dinner. We caught up on chatting and she did her needlework wh...

Half scale Bombe # 3

03-09-2012 01:13 PM by KPW | 4 comments »

Got some more pics of the progress on the chest. Draw bottoms,draw sides and backs. Started on the feet. I cut them on my trusty old craftsman jig saw. The curves were too tight to do it on the band saw. I,ll probably go through 6 or 7 blanks before I get 4 that I like. Ball and claw in this scale is tuff. Not giving up yet but may have to go with just a simple cabriolet foot. Wish me luck.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #489: Using Mistakes as Tools for Learning

10-12-2011 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I never said I was the brightest bulb in the box. I do however find it sometimes amazing how I can find new and exciting ways to make mistakes. I can be pretty innovative at that. That should count for something, shouldn’t it? Yesterday I did get to cut out all the pieces for my new calendar project. I really think it is going to be cool. This project is going to be one that will be sent to the magazine for publication and I really wanted to do a good job on it. In fact, I am ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1454: Welcome December!

12-01-2014 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is hard to believe it is December already! The autumn months are always my favorite, but it always seems that they pass by so quickly. Here in Nova Scotia we have had several days of dusting snow and lately it has been cool and grey. Winter is definitely coming.The beginning of the new month is also a significant day for me. My oldest child (Phil) has turned 31 today. It is hard to believe that it was that long ago when he was just a little guy. It seemed like in a blick of an eye he grew ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #335: "I See the Light!"

05-10-2011 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I was very excited when I got to the post office yesterday and found that the light for my new saw had arrived. It was supposed to be sent to New York last month and either it got lost (gotta love the post office!) or just plain didn’t go out. In any case, I needed to reorder it and it has finally arrive. In all the years I have been scroll sawing, I have never had a “proper” light. At one time I had the swing arm type of desk light, but I found that the vibration from...

Getting my tools ready #15: Rehabbed Delta 18" C Arm Scroll Saw...it's done!

07-18-2014 02:41 AM by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

This has been a learning experience in what not to do. LOL! Saw this scroll saw for 75 bucks on Craigslist. Drove to the house down dusty country roads and I blogged earlier about this saw requiring a couple hours of fixing the clamp to see it cut wood! Then I drove home in a snow storm. The first picture is how the saw looked in January! The second picture is how the rusted table looked. I got some suggestions from Blackie (Randy) regarding about using apple cider vinegar to rem...

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 ...
