Inlay card table refurbish #2: So far, so good

11-25-2015 03:02 PM by peterrum | 0 comments »

The curled bits of inlay were carefully removed from the table and put aside. Then I used some water and a steam iron to heat the vacant areas and remove the old glue from the plywood base. I also used the same technique to remove the old glue from the removed inlay pieces. Then I used the steam iron again to steam the individual pieces of inlay an pressed them between two pieces of plywood to get them flat again. This worked quite well. Some of the inlay was so bad I had to replace it s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1656: Site Update Time!

11-19-2015 01:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

As I write today, I promise I will keep things short. (I know – I always say that!) I want to get going on writing our newsletter that we will be sending out later on today. I also want to get to writing on the instructions for the new ornament pattern that will be available to my scroll saw followers later on today. (SLD519 - Damask Locket Ornament Pattern) (The link will work as soon as I have the pattern available on the site.) I have had such a wonderful and positive response regard...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1655: A "Creative" and Positive Lifestyle

11-18-2015 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I am often asked how I can keep coming up with so many different creative ideas. While one would think that the answer to this question would be easy, it really is not, and usually I find it a difficult thing to answer. So many things can trigger a design; a distant memory from childhood, the way the light hits the fur on my cat Richard's back (I am looking at that now and noticing how glossy he is), or even a phrase or lyric from a song that we hear in the background of a busy ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1654: Creating as Therapy

11-16-2015 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

“It’s all in a days’ work.” Well . . . two days I guess. I spent the weekend focusing on what some would consider 'work'. After Friday's events, it was very hard for me to be my usual positive self. I know a lot of you feel the same. How does one cope with the senseless of what had occurred? I just don't understand it. I decided that the best way for me to deal with myself and my own demons was to try to re-focus on something positive. The pa...

MAKING A WOODEN GEARED CLOCK #1: Getting started, day 1

11-14-2015 10:05 PM by stefang | 31 comments »

I have been wanting to make a wooden geared clock for some time now and I finally got around to buying some plans for one. I bought them from a German named Christopher Blasius from his website Holzmechanik. Sorry about the bad photo. Iphone problem. Reducing the fear factorI wanted to blog the build for fun and for those who have been thinking about building a wooden clock and who would be interested in seeing what is involved and how difficult it might be. This isn’t a tutorial...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1652: Busy as an Elf

11-12-2015 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Today's post will be a bit short. While I am working hard on new designs, there still isn't much that I can show you or even tease you with. I did get some wood cutting done yesterday and filled some orders, and I was planning and drawing my new designs in between. I feel as if I am skipping blogging a bit more than normal. Again, this isn't because I am not making things, but more so just the opposite. Between email, posting orders, cutting, painting and drawing, the days ar...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1650: Monday's Blog - Take 2

11-10-2015 12:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Yesterday I had a blog all written and ready to publish. It was a quarter of nine my time and I was feeling good because I usually post by about nine fifteen. I was ahead of the game and it was a great way to start off my Monday. Then in the blink of an eye – POOF!!!! Our power went off. It remained off for nearly five hours. I knew the post was lost. I do pretty well in power outages here. They don't happen frequently (usually less than once a year) but on a bright, sunny...

Originals #1: Cupcake Box

11-10-2015 12:36 AM by Sioranth | 0 comments »

So, I’m having a bit of woodworking ADD lately while trying to work on holiday gifts. I have a million things to do so of course I’m procrastinating. I decided to attempt making my own pattern and went with a simple cupcake box. I’ve seen the ones that are round and look like actual cupcakes, but I wanted mine to be a flat box with a sort of intarsia top. I drew up the pattern in Inkscape and started cutting. The box is being glued at the moment so I’ll cut it tomorrow...
