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...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #7: ScrollSaw Information and Resources #7:

02-23-2011 10:04 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

OK Jocks – I have a blade question. I have a Porter Cable 16” scrollsaw (like you get at the big hardware stores) and I am starting to have problems with the lower blade holder. When using PLAIN END blades (loike a #2) seems like the lower clamp lets go most of the time. It is getting fuustrating. I tighten it as hard as I can and make sure it is in the center of the screw. What else cai/should I be doing. This is no fun at all.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1307: A New Idea in the Works

05-02-2014 10:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up to a dense fog this morning.  I hope it means that it is finally getting warmer. Our weather here in Nova Scotia has still been pretty dull and rainy. But I suppose I should be happy that it isn't snow. Even I have had enough of that. It felt odd to be 'caught up' with everything. It isn't that I don't have anything to do – as I have lots of new ideas that I am anxious to work on – but with nothing really pressing, I find that sometimes it s...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #548: Thanks for the Great Responses Yesterday!

12-10-2011 02:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off today’s post with thanking all of those who helped out and posted your thoughts and participated in yesterday’s discussion. The responses were quite overwhelming not only here on Lumberjocks, but also on the Sheila Landry Designs page and my Facebook. It just shows what a hot topic picking the right tool is and judging from all the responses and also all the personal emails I received, I think that together we all helped a great deal of people. Discussions...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #599: The Blink of an Eye

01-31-2012 03:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

When I lived in the Chicago area, I grew up with the notion that the weather could change at any time. One minute it would be 70 degrees and sunny and half an hour later you would need your heavy coat and rain gear. It was one of the residual effect of living lakeside and many errant weather forecasts were attributed to ‘lake effect.’ I find that living here in Nova Scotia is no different. Whether it is the ocean or the changing climate that the entire planet is going through,...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #834: My Weekend 'Off'

10-01-2012 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I’ts funny how time off can mean different things to different people. While some people live for the weekend to totally switch gears and not think about their jobs until Monday, there are others who really don’t mind their work, and take each day as it comes and enjoy it. I definitely fall into the second category. Being fortunate enough to be doing something that I love to do and work in a creative field, much of the time I am working it doesn’t even feel like ‘...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1122: More Spooky Things

09-04-2013 10:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I did accomplish a great deal yesterday, although much of it was the type of stuff that I can’t really show pictures of. I spent most of the morning and part of the afternoon editing the photographs that are going to be included with my Snowflake Damask project for the magazine. I shipped out the project already, and I must say I really hated to see that one go. I probably won’t see it back until sometime next spring. I did get to spend some time to do some painting, although ...
