My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #766: Seeing Double - Part 4 of the Video Series

07-18-2012 10:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday I received my newsletter from Lumberjocks and in reading it, I noticed that Debbie had mentioned that I would be adding on to the class that I ran next year. I was glad that they thought it warranted being brought to the attention of the readers, as I am sure that many who followed the class don’ necessarily read the blog here on a daily basis and it was nice that they announced it so that those interested could again come and see what we are doing. So far, the feedback ...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #11: Class is Resuming! - "Reindeer Games" Layered Ornaments Part 1

07-17-2012 10:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Hello, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve been here at the class. Those of you who have been following my daily blog know how busy I have been with many different things. As usual, I wish that there were 48 hours in a day (and then some time to sleep on top of that!) But there aren’t and I have to make due with the same 24 that everyone else has to work with. And that is OK. Lately I have had a lot of people write me asking many of the same questions regarding dif...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #765: Part 3 of the "Reindeer Games" Ornament Video

07-17-2012 10:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 16 comments »

Yesterday was a different kind of day. I had some time alone here at home because Keith had some family things to do and was gone for the entire day and night. It is rare that he is not here, as with both of us working from home here we are usually both here together. It was odd not having someone here to bounce ideas and thoughts off of, although I did have my three feline companions to keep me company. I decided that since I had all of this ‘quiet time’ in front of me that ...

Tilting a Dado Set

07-16-2012 11:12 PM by rockinmichael | 4 comments »

I was designing a project a few days ago, and a couple of the joints would use angled dado’s. I’m wondering if anyone has done this and opinions on the safety of doing so.

This morning I will be brief (really!) I did get the second part of the video done and uploaded. It is about 16 minutes long and took over 2 hours to upload last night! I am continuing to get the subsequent parts ready, so they will be up soon. But for now, the video is here: You can also watch it here if you like: Thanks for all the good feedback on yesterdays’ post. I do appreciate it a lot. I will be incorporating these into the class ...

New (to me) Scroll Saw

07-16-2012 04:31 AM by lab7654 | 7 comments »

Last week I was sitting around in my cabin garage, shooting breeze with the contractor that we use up there. He is also a custom cabinet maker on the side, so we have a decent amount in common to talk about. He mentioned that he had a Craftsman scroll saw laying around that he hardly uses, and paid about $180 for. I asked if he would consider getting rid of it, and he said $50 and it was mine. Done deal. I figured that it would be in good shape, given that I know and trust this guy pretty wel...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #763: Scrollgirl/Videogirl

07-15-2012 10:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 20 comments »

Just when I thought I had enough to do . . . I was cutting out my recent project the other day and I was thinking (THAT is always dangerous!) I have been getting a lot of questions lately and I have talked to many newcomers to scroll sawing and for some odd reason I had the urge to teach again, so I thought I would do some more videos. There are so many times when I wish that I could just be with someone to show them how to do things. It would be far easier than trying to explain thing...

Scroll Saw Forum #1: Hey Woodworkers, Wanna Talk Live on Skype?

07-15-2012 01:58 AM by TripleB | 1 comment »

I’m contemplating setting up “Live” weekly chats via Skype conference calls on my Scroll Saw blog at This is open to anyone that loves woodworking, not just Scrollers, but it will probably be a lil Scroll saw intensive! If you don’t know what Skype is, briefly, it is a Free online program that allows people to talk to each through their computers. You can also do group webcam and conference calls (Web Cam is not necessary, so don’t worry if y...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #762: Progress Report on New Design

07-14-2012 11:54 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 16 comments »

I finished up the drawings for the new set of ornaments yesterday. Then I went to work getting them laid out and started cutting them. So far they look pretty good and even though once again the cutting isn’t what I would call ‘beginner’, I think that with a little time and concentration that most people will be able to do them. I am finding that the most difficult thing that I have had to encounter with designing is that my designs are getting more detailed and more ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #761: New Deadlines

07-13-2012 10:54 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I suppose that there will always be deadlines that I have to think about. But that is a good thing – the more deadlines, the harder I push myself. I think that is one of the reasons that I am here everyday writing. By writing about what I plan to do, it puts it out here for all to see and that somehow keeps me pushing to get what I say I am going to do done. It sure helps when we are self-governing and have a day when we aren’t quite as ambitious as we would like. I know that...
