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...

Delta 40-601 speed control rotor repair #1: How do I remove the speed control rotor hub

11-09-2015 01:34 PM by LFB | 2 comments »

I have the problem described by Mr. Unix, a shattered speed control rotor on my 40-601 Delta Scroll Saw. I understand how and can make the replacement rotor that he developed. However, the axel on which the rotor hub is secured appears to be pressed into the cast iron housing of the saw. Moreover, the axel has a gear mounted to it. Finally, I am uncertain whether I have the skill or tools to remove the axel. Consequently, do you have a sequence or method to remove the axel? I apprecia...

WoodShop Thoughts. #1: Freaking Drawers

11-07-2015 02:54 AM by Matt | 7 comments »

So as most of you know I finished my cabinet a few weeks ago save the drawers. Since my mother’s garage cabinets that some of you have seen, I have had an outright war with drawers. I cannot seem to get them right, ever. I have tried the expensive soft close all the way to the under and side mount white roller slidey ones. This time was no different. I bought those crappy white roller wheel sliders because they were cheap and I wanted to try something new (not to mention it was fo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1649: Busy Work

11-06-2015 11:30 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was another busy day. I had so many parcels to package up and ship out that it took me most of the day to get everything done. I was fortunate to get to the post office by 4pm, as they closed at 5 and it took them nearly an hour just to process all the parcels. It was a good day. I am really pleased at the response to my little pumpkin surface. (SLDPK127 on my site) Talk about an unexpected response! I have another fairly large batch to cut again over the weekend as well. It...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1648: NOW I Can Call it Finished!

11-05-2015 01:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

These last few days have been both busy and fun. I am so thrilled at all the positive responses that I had regarding my little pumpkin shaped plaques. Before I could even finish them, I had lots and lots of orders for the surfaces. Many people ordered just one or two, as they were planning to paint their own designs on them. It felt good to have something that was liked so much by so many. I am really pleased. Needless to say, I have been quite busy these past couple of days. I hadn'...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1646: November, It Is!

11-02-2015 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yes – we are already into month 11 of the year.  How the heck did that happen? It seemed like yesterday that we were taking pictures of the nearly 4 feet of snow that had accumulated. Wow! How quickly this year has passed!But as I was outside the other day, on an overcast autumn afternoon, I couldn't help but notice the beauty. not only were the trees still half-filled with warm colored leaves, but the other plants and vegetation had also taken on deep, warm color. The air was ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1644: New Scrolling Patterns

10-29-2015 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

My goodness the mornings go fast! It is hard to believe that I have already been up a couple of hours. I love my mornings, as many of you already know, because it seems that I am able to accomplish so much in those first few quiet hours of the day. Yesterday was a really productive day. It was one of those (rare) times when everything went 'as it should' and I was able to tick off just about everything that I had on my list – and then some. I filled orders, did errands, hel...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1643: Online Learning

10-28-2015 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

When I think back to when I began painting and scroll sawing, I remember how different things were back then. I started both in the mid-90's and there was very little available online. I remember when we purchased our first home computer and I was thrilled at the thought of being able to type on it. My biggest excitement was that I would have a way to find and organize things like recipes and photos, as it was a time when my kids were young and my own little family was a focus. I never co...

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...
