My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #270: Still More Details

02-28-2011 02:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I hope that everyone isn’t getting sick of reading about my preparation for the Woodworker’s Showcase. As you can imagine, it pretty much has been (and probably will be) the focus of my life for the next couple of weeks. It seems like it has been forever since I have been at the saw. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time, it seems. I read many posts where people wish that they could do woodworking as a full time job. I can see from what I read that they have visio...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #393: Preparing Patterns

07-07-2011 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I woke up this morning to a sunny and hazy day. Although the sun was just rising, I already could tell it was going to be a hot day. Yesterday was probably one of the warmest days of the year here so far. It was sticky and still and slightly uncomfortable. I spent as much time as I could out on the small deck with Pancakes, my kitty, as it was slightly cooler there, but I didn’t have a lot of things that I could do outside, as I needed to do work on my computer. So I sucked it up a...

Desk build #3: Nurse desk: Some glue-up

08-27-2009 07:31 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

Church Clock Project #1: Build The Inside First

02-19-2011 05:15 AM by William | 4 comments »

Well it FINALLY happened. I finally got enough caught up on around here and had a good enough health day to start a new project. Until I can order my new plans, I wanted to get started on something else. So here goes.I decided to build a church clock. I’ve only built one of these before. When I did, a lady I know snatched it up and took it home with her before I even had a chance to take some decent photos of it. She was so excited I didn’t have the heart to tell her anything besi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1064: Patience and Flexibility - Two Ingredients for Success

06-21-2013 10:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post will once again be rather quick. On Wednesday night, we received a reorder for Haunted Masquerade kits from Artist’s Club and we needed to switch gears so we could get them done: I was happy to get this order so early in the year. That means that they are doing well and hopefully there will be more orders to follow. We immediately turned into “production mode” and got about half the order done yesterday. The printing of the patterns actually ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #379: Working and More Class Planning

06-23-2011 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I thought that I would have gotten a bit farther yesterday than I actually did, but I can’t say it was a bad day at all. I suppose that sometimes things just take more time then we anticipate. I used to do that more then I do now, but I have been pretty realistic about mapping out and achieving my goals lately. I think writing things down here in the mornings helps me a lot with sticking to a plan. Even if I want to change things up in the middle of the day, at least I have a framew...

giving the local Kids something they can be there own #1: Christmas Tree Ornaments

10-30-2013 04:20 PM by Jim Earl | 4 comments »

For the last five years I have given Blank Christmas tree Ornaments to the local Grade school across from me. My GrandChildrenn has been going over there and I still have three going over there and one at another grade school. I do this for them to paint and keep for there own, I know not all children celebrate Christmas but that does stop the schools and everywhere else from decorating so I figure that while I made them to sell, I would give them to my grandchildrens classes, well that grew ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #261: More Preparation

02-19-2011 02:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday went by far too quickly. I don’t know how or why time seems to go by so fast, but it does. I see more and more grass through the banks of piled snow and you can just feel the air changing again. Winter is nearly over (now that wasn’t so bad, was it?) and we are definitely moving in the direction of Spring. Soon we will be getting to my least favorite part of the year – that muddy, dirty transition between winter snow and spring. This year though, I don’...

2X4 Winter Contest #1: The beginning

01-07-2008 04:16 AM by Jamie | 4 comments »

Well, I started working on my 2×4 project today. Last weekend I picked up a bunch of 2×4’s at Lowes to construct a new lumber rack, with 1 to spare for the contest. I was a little afraid that one 2×4 wouldn’t be enough to complete the project, but it looks like I will have a few scraps left. I cut some of the pieces today, 4 – 18” long pieces have been jointed and edge-glued together to form one plank (needed it to be a little longer than what is r...
