My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #323: Concerned About My Friends

04-28-2011 01:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I spent the last hour or so trying to find out news about my dear friend Leldon from Cullman, Alabama. Yesterday Cullman was hit with a vicious tornado that wiped out most of downtown. The pictures are devastating and apparently the local hospital was also hit. I worried about him most of the night and even though he was able to check in to his Facebook page after the storm went through his area, he said it was like nothing he has ever seen. I was a bit relieved to see that he reposted on ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #322: More Cutting

04-27-2011 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off by thanking everyone for their help on the oak pieces. I was glad to hear that the problem could be solved and worked on the two pieces yesterday. I made a bleach/water solution and put the board in the shower and sprayed them liberally with the mixture. I let it set for a bit, and then used a small scrub brush to work it in further. After a couple of hours, I rinsed them and allowed them to dry in a well-ventilated place. They really do look much better. By the ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #321: I Need Some Advice from You

04-26-2011 01:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

OK, now it is my turn to have the questions. I know there are many seasoned woodworkers out there that will hopefully be able to help me with this: What do I do to get the dark, moldy-looking streaks out of oak? I did my usual of Googling it, and most of the responses said to use some bleach, but I don’t want to ruin the natural color of the oak or have it blotchy or streaky. Let me tell you more about the wood: I have a couple of boards, let’s say half an inch thick an...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #318: New Project Finished

04-23-2011 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Throughout the week of still catching up and making videos and probably thinking a bit too much, I did manage to complete my first project(s) for my submissions to the magazine for their Holiday issue. Last year I was fortunate enough to have several different projects and ornaments accepted. Between my partner Keith and myself we were well represented. I believe that it was my all time high as far as number of projects published with four. This year because of many reasons, I am only ...

72 note Movement, Music Box #3: "Marquetry", for the Top.

04-22-2011 03:11 AM by Dennis Zongker | 34 comments »

I just finished the practice piece for the top of the music box. The method of marquetry I use is one that I have developed over the years. I used some of the techniques like the boulle technique and the packet method and combined them into what I call, ” the ten step method.” The veneer packet consisted of 8 different veneers and there were a total of 138 individual pieces. I used hot silicon sand for shading certain pieces of the veneers it gives the marquetry a 3D appearan...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #316: Sharing Through Teaching

04-21-2011 01:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am very pleased that you all liked the short videos that I posted yesterday. It shows me that there are lots of people who are interested in scroll sawing and would like to learn more about it. It also makes me want to do more teaching and help people understand how much fun and how relaxing scroll sawing can be. Earlier this week, I received some wonderful pictures from my friends Erwin and Edith (Bearpie here on Lumberjocks.) While I was away, I had received a message from Erwin tha...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #315: Two Short Videos for You

04-20-2011 01:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 30 comments »

Well, I actually was able to shoot a couple of short videos for you yesterday. I find that I feel much more at ease behind my keyboard writing than I do in front of the camera. I suppose that is natural, and I am sure with practice I will get better at it. These are both showing some of the highlights of the new saw. The first one shows the general set up and highlights the tensioning of the saw. I want to stress the point that the knob on the back end of the saw is used to raise and lo...

3 Girls & A Woodworker #5: Questions about Walnut and Scrollsawing

04-19-2011 03:14 PM by John_G | 15 comments »

I’m about to begin a scrollsaw project with a piece of 3/4” Walnut. My question is when i was sanding down the walnut ahead of time i noticed that it has “pores” or “open grain” or something in it. Is this normal for walnut, or is it something that will get compeltely sanded out if i spend enough time at it? Thanks Jocks…..

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #314: More on the Excalibur Scroll Saw

04-19-2011 01:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 20 comments »

I want to start out today by saying that I didn’t get the video done yesterday. There was just too much going on with things and my partner Keith and I were both kind of taking turns on the saw. We both have projects to submit to the magazine for the Holiday issue and it is kind of ‘crunch time’. as we were away for a while and need to really get our projects done. I did, however save a piece from my own arsenal to cut in hopes of making a couple of small clips today. ...
