Victorian Skater Pond Scene #5: "Edouard" and "Dora"

09-08-2010 02:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Well, it looks as if I was right! Pierre seems to have gotten a little too reckless and knocked poor Edouard over! What a nuisance! From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures But thank goodness Dora is there to help him get back on his feet. You know what they say . . . behind every great man is a woman! (Well, at least the women say that!) From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1571: Catching Up

06-12-2015 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I suppose that I will never be accused of 'rushing through' things.Even when I seem to get something done quickly, many times I wind up going back and making changes in order to improve on it. I think this can be a good thing, but sometimes I wonder if it is counter productive or not.It is something that I can't really help. Often times, I will make something that is really good, and then either while I am writing the  pattern for it or making additional pieces, I realize tha...

Shop in the Sky #4: FINALLY got the walls up!

08-22-2011 02:44 AM by EROCK | 5 comments »

I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop. I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #3: To submit or not to submit

06-05-2010 01:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It certainly is a beautiful morning here in Nova Scotia. The sun is shining and everything is quiet except the sound of the birds in the distance. The past several days have started out foggy and overcast, as many do being so close to the ocean. Usually by mid-morning things clear up and the sun burns off the fog. The ocean stays pretty cold in these parts. I have only actually went for a swim in the ocean once in my six years of being here (if you could call it that – I got as far...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #318: New Project Finished

04-23-2011 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Throughout the week of still catching up and making videos and probably thinking a bit too much, I did manage to complete my first project(s) for my submissions to the magazine for their Holiday issue. Last year I was fortunate enough to have several different projects and ornaments accepted. Between my partner Keith and myself we were well represented. I believe that it was my all time high as far as number of projects published with four. This year because of many reasons, I am only ...

In this episode I use a template to cut out a design for the top part of the side panels. Then I talk about jointery for the shelvs and then I cut the wood used for the jointery.

Recovery projects #1: Whitetail Deer

08-14-2008 10:51 PM by Betsy | 5 comments »

Since I seem to blog about every other woodworking thing I do, I figure I might as well do so with my “recovery projects.” Hopefully, it will help me see my progress in some concrete way. So today I spent my limited shop time setting up for a scroll saw project. I had to set up my Dremel tool in it’s drill press jig so I can drill my starter holes, picked out my blades and found a piece of stock. I’ve chosen a project from “North American Wildlife Patterns ...

Desk build #5: Nurses desk, finished

09-02-2009 10:19 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

The desk is finally finished. My niece wants to stain and poly it herself so I’m done with it at this point. Back up to any of the other blogs for background info on this build. The second picture shows the drawer open and the keyboard tray extended after the front cover is pulled down. A magnetic latch holds it in a closed position. Next build: believe it or not, a pellet stove box to hold stove pellets, made to look like a couch end table. Hmm.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1023: Moving Forward

05-01-2013 11:11 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a very productive day. Not only was the sun warm and shining bright, but manythings fell into place to start me on my next several designs. (Yes! I said several designs!) This is a good feeling. Perhaps after all of these years I am truly figuring our a process that works well for me in order to keep my new designs flowing. I find myself settled on projects for many different branches of my business and even got some things mapped out to develop some new area...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1563: "The Zone"

05-29-2015 11:30 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I had an amazingly productive day yesterday! It was one of those days that went somewhat like this:     - I had a plan     - I set a goal     - I stayed FOCUSED     - I worked     - I got the job DONE! It isn't that I don't always TRY to work like this. But most of us know that many days, we make plans to accomplish things and even with our best efforts, sometimes life just gets in the way. It happens to m...
