Scrolled Wooden Puzzles #2: Alligator and Grasshopper

07-25-2008 02:49 AM by Allison | 4 comments »

My next step has been taken and that is to cut out all the inside pieces with the starter holes. I have done many of these puzzles and normally I have cut them by simply cutting off a letter at a time. Besides the middle of the A’s and R’s and O’s and P’s a person does not even need to place a starter hole in the other places if you are to cut the letters out one at a time. In the letters L,L,I,G, if I were to have cut the letters OFF one at a time then these inside cu...

HO Scale Furniture Build #1: Building the new saw table

06-06-2010 10:22 PM by OttoH | 4 comments »

Well the gauntlet has been thrown and being the foolhardy individual I am I have accepted the challenge. After a friend of mine saw the Barbie Doll sized furniture (1/6 scale) I made for the Nothing New Except The Glue challenge they said, “I’ll bet you can’t do that in HO scale” and after a long discussion and a friendly wager the challenge was on. I am now trying to figure out how to make a functioning furniture in 1/87 scale. I will start with the easy pieces first and then move on to t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1173: New Projects Completed! Time To Write Pattern Packets!

11-23-2013 11:54 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I will get right down to business this morning because I have a LOT that I want to accomplish today! I pretty much finished up the new ornaments and today I need to write instructions for the pattern packet, as well as the ornaments that I showed earlier this week and the “Gloria” candle tray that was featured in the holiday issue of Scrollsaw Woodworks and Crafts magazine so I can get everything on the website and do the site update. Here are pictures of the “Gloria&#...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #455: Sometimes the Simple Things are the Best

09-08-2011 01:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am the type of person that always tries to do the best work that I can do. I think for the most part this is a good thing and helps me grow as a designer and also as an artist. I have been scrollsawing now for almost 20 years and as time passes, I find myself still learning new techniques and skills. A clear example of this was when I went to New York this past spring and met with other scrollers of all levels. I felt that not only was I the teacher, but at times the student because the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1053: Done With Instructions, On To the Next Projects

06-07-2013 11:46 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I feel very relieved this morning. Yesterday afternoon I finished the written instructions for each of the four projects that are going to be published in the holiday issues of both Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and also Scrollsaw Woodworking and Crafts magazine (Yes! I know it is confusing! The only two magazines that I know of that are geared to scroll sawing have such similar names!) While I have been a contributing editor to Creative Woodworks and Crafts for over 15 years, thi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1221: Tiny Dancers

01-17-2014 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am running late with my blog this morning. It isn’t because I was being lazy or slept late – actually it was quite the contrary, as I awoke at around 4:30 this morning and starting working – but it is because I was getting a great deal done and didn’t want to stop. But I glanced up at the clock and see that it is after 8:30 now and time for me to report in. So here we go . . . we will do this quickly . . . I had another wonderful and productive day yesterday. I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #286: Another Piece of the Puzzle In Place

03-16-2011 01:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place – but not without effort. One of the last things that I needed to think about was to obtain paint brushes for both the painting class and the scrolling class. Back in the days, my favorite brush company was very supportive about providing brushes when I taught larger shows. Of course they didn’t send new brushes for every show I taught at, but every couple of years, if I were doing a larger show I could request paint brushes an...

Splinters of thought #3: Mass Produce Your Wedges.

10-20-2015 09:52 PM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Wedges are very useful to have around. If you are using wedged tenon joinery they are a must. You can use them to fill a bad dovetail joint, hold an un-level chair from rocking while you mark out the leg to be cut, repair a bad tenon etc. When I make my wedges I try to make them is a mass scale so I don’t have to worry about running out in the middle of a glue up. I have had that happen, where I had to stop in the middle of a glue up and make a wedge, very annoying. So here are some pic...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #33: The Benefits of Owning Your Own Business

07-06-2010 01:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

One of the most rewarding aspects of my life are getting to know my customers and fellow woodworkers. I believe they are the force that drives me to do the best job I can do. As I see my business grow, I find that there is more and more interaction with my customers and although it takes time, it is quite a rewarding aspect of my life. Interaction with others comes in many forms. I receive emails from people asking questions or help, I talk with people on the forums and give advice or hel...
