ScrollSaw Information and Resources #60: New Scrollsaw Almost setup

154 days ago by jerrells | 3 comments »

My DeWalt scroll saw had a lot of miles on it. Now it still was doing just great but I still worried about it’s condition. I posted the DeWalt on my FaceBook page and with in three hours it was sold. So I had build up some extra money in my scroll saw account. I talked to Ray at Seyco and he said he had one Excaliber EX-16 and that size would just fit my needs. As a live not too far from his business I said I would drive down and pick it up. As it turned out that morning we had 3 inches...

Time to make some changes to the shop. #7: New tools are always a nice change to the shop... Hitachi Scroll Saw!

155 days ago by AngieO | 41 comments »

Yes… I can hear it now because I know what I would say… But I’ll just wait and let you say it ;) So… I have this friend that I’ve known since Jr High. He has had his own general contracting business and such and is now a maintenance guy for a local state institution. He can do it all. From woodworking to building a house. He is by far the best drywall guy I’ve ever seen. He has it mastered. Fast and looks great with hardly no sanding. He’s just go...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1240: This and That

155 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I got started on a new projects yesterday. This one is going to be fun. The project is mainly geared for painters, but will be suitable for everyone. It is one that I am doing for the “Painting With Friends” group and is inspired by Terrye French. I love having the opportunity to work with Terrye on these projects because working with another really helps us think in different directions. Even though Keith is my partner, he and I don’t collaborate on designs (at least we...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #59: Time for a new saw

157 days ago by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have had a DeWalt scroll saw for about three years and it has been one fine saw. I did buy it used but still got a deal, I think. It has started showing signs of wear and age. Perhaps a few parts would make it much better but who knows. So last night and again this morning, I talked to Ray at Seyco and they have put on reserve their last Excalibur EX-16. This is reported to be one of the finest saws on the market and well fits my needs. I know some people will say they like others and th...

"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

157 days ago by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #58: Embellish of existing patterns

170 days ago by jerrells | 4 comments »

I will be cutting a set of standard patterns but my goal is to have them stand out for all the rest who use the same pattern. There are several ways to accomplish this we all know. Let me explore a few and , if you would, add you comments or suggestions. 1. Choice of wood. Instead of using the standard oak or maple we all know that more exotic woods look much nicer when finished. The down side is they might only appeal to a select group of persons. 2. The use of gems, rhinestones to add...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #57: ESTY Pricing Decision

171 days ago by jerrells | 4 comments »

I am going to start stocking me ETSY shop. However the issue I find is that items like or similar to mine sell at half the price I get a local craft shows. Now I have enough marketing expertise to know that you either A) meet market price, B) sell a higher quality product at a higher price, or C) offer more and better services. Perhaps there are a few more but that is a start. I could make a reasonable return for the current prices on ETSY and (hope) to do volume selling). I see many produ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1224: Pretty Maids All in a Row

173 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

What a wonderfully busy day I had yesterday! Even though I arose early (just after 4:30) I got to work right away and remained focused for pretty much the entire day. I was excited about seeing my twelve little ballerina ornaments come to life as I painted them in one by one. What started out last week as a “just because” pattern has quickly turned into something that will be quite significant for me. Apparently I am not the only one who enjoys ballerinas, and as it turns ...
