Lazy Raccoon scroll saw project. [Work in progress]

10-28-2015 08:26 PM by htl | 3 comments »

Got the fall 2015 issue #60 of Scrollsaw Woodworking to build another project but found the patterns for Lazy Raccoon and had to give it a try.I’ve never done a intarsia before so just thought I’d give it a try.Have got it pretty well all cut out and shaped but will do some fine tuning tomorrow but just wanted to show my progress. I found a walnut cutting board while scrounging the other day, was chopped up really bad but nothing my planer couldn’t fix.I started out with ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #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...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1638: Meeting Deadlines

10-19-2015 12:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It isn't often that I am able to proclaim that I am 'caught up' with things. Usually I have several things on my plate that are lined up that need to be doing. In the past month or so, I have had six major deadlines that I needed to meet for various things that I had committed myself to doing. I can't tell you the relief that I felt yesterday when I completed the last one right on the deadline. All of the others came in on time, as well.  It was as if a weight had been li...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1637: Becoming 'Real'

10-16-2015 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am finding that it is remaining darker for a longer period of time each morning when I awake. I have been up for over an hour, started my second cup of coffee, and have already been visited by all three of my cats this morning. (Pancakes is still here on my lap and Richard asleep at my feet, curled up in a ball on his little pillow with a blanket wrapped around him. I can hear him snoring quietly. It is so peaceful) The sun is just beginning to illuminate the eastern sky. This morning it is...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1636: Evolving

10-14-2015 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

As I sit down and write this morning, I find myself struggling a bit as to which direction I want today's post to head. It seems that lately there have been so many new avenues that I have been exploring that it is somewhat difficult for me to discuss them all here without having extremely lengthy posts. While some of you may not mind that, I realize that other just don't have the time, as they are much like me – exploring the different avenues and wondering which one would be t...

Concept Ideas using SketchUp #5: Scroll Saw

10-13-2015 07:49 PM by George_SA | 3 comments »

This is on my woodworking project bucket list. Every time I see the prices of these machines I just turn away and decide scroll sawing is not for me. Thanks to YouTube I have seen that it is possible to make an affordable homemade alternative. This drawing is a combination of several different homemade scroll saws on the internet. It is designed to have a 600mm (Aprox 24 inch) throat depth and a tiltable table as well as a toe to hold the work down. The arm that supports the toe could also be...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1635: Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!

10-12-2015 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

There are two times when I really feel that I am not living in the USA anymore. One of them is in July, when the US celebrates Independence Day. It is sometimes hard to get used to the 4th of July being just 'another day' here in Canada. Although they do celebrate "Canada Day" – usually within a day or two of the 4th, it somehow just feels different. The other day that I really feel that I am living in a different country than I was raised is Thanksgiving. While i...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1633: Everyday Stuff

10-07-2015 11:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Sometimes when I am at my busiest, I have the least to show you. There are so many things that Keith and I do to keep the business running that is 'un-glamorous' but necessary that sometimes I feel I have nothing interesting to show you in the mornings here. Yesterday was a busy and productive day. On Monday, it was my turn for my Art Play Date 2015 project to play, so I have been busy cutting skate surfaces to ship out to those who requested them: I really loved making these ...
