My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #702: Up and Running

05-15-2012 10:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I finished all my cutting yesterday. There was a little more to do than I had originally thought, but it was certainly manageable for me to finish. I finished in the early afternoon with a decent part of the day left to do other things. The next thing on the list was to tidy up the area where I was cutting and get everything back in order. While I cleaned in between sessions, I wanted to make sure that things were nice and fresh and everything was back to normal. It is important to kee...

Woods used—Walnut, Holly, Spalted Beech, Spalted Sycamore, Yellowheart, Ebony, Fishtail Oak, Poplar, Lignum Vitae, Purpleheart, Afromosia, Vera ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #701: Making Choices

05-14-2012 10:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Choices. We all have them and make hundreds of them every day. Some are automatic and simple (do I want cream or milk in my coffee) while others can be more difficult and have a lasting impact on our lives or businesses. This is especially true if you have your own business. While it may seem to be really glamorous and ‘cool’ to be able to make all the decisions regarding your future, sometimes it can get taxing. Some decisions aren’t as easy to make as others and the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #700: Everything's Working (that's scary!)

05-13-2012 11:24 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Sometimes we plan things and they actually work out like they are supposed to. When that happens, it can be puzzling and confusing. Have I finally found the ‘magic formula’ to make things work? Humm . . . I spent the day yesterday cutting. (And cutting and cutting some more) It wasn’t a bad thing. In fact it felt really good to be at the saw. As I watched the piles of wood grow I felt a great sense of accomplishment. While I was working, my little Canon printer w...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #27: A Good Day in the Shop - Kinda

05-12-2012 11:18 PM by jerrells | 0 comments »

Is was a good day in the shop – as Shelia would say – kind of. I have been organizing and throwing out. If I have not touched it in several years – OUT OF HERE. That is what I did not of the day. But then there is that scrollsaw sitting over there. A friend of mine wanted a hook to hand a quilt on the wall. OK first project. Now to the second. Well I wish I had gotten to the second. As I looked at the project I did not have enough wood for that one. OK another project ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #697: A Nice Surprise

05-10-2012 10:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well yesterday was just a dandy! Even though it poured rain and the wind was howling most of the day, it didn’t put a damper on my spirits. I got a lot accomplished AND I discovered something that was pretty cool. It was a great day! In receiving the new for a second order on my Halloween painting kits, I knew I needed to kick it into high gear. I had some wood left here from when I made the last set of kits, and there was also more left that we had stashed at Keith’s paren...

"Eagle's Realm "Intarsia #3: Gaining on it

05-09-2012 12:09 PM by wdkits1 | 1 comment »

This has been a challenging project. The background has been difficult to get the proper depth but I’m gaining on it. . I will go ahead and finish the background as I have it drawn out but I’m sure I will change a few pieces until I get the effect I’m looking for. Woods used—Walnut, Holly,Spalted Beech,Spalted Sycamore, Yellowheart, Ebony, Fishtail Oak, Poplar, Lignum Vitae, Purpleheart, Afromosia, Vera wood, Peruvian Walnut, Tulipwood. 140 pieces so far.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #696: So, I Guess I am Back in Production

05-09-2012 11:12 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

A funny thing happened to me this week. I wouldn’t really call it funny in the comical sense, but rather it was more ironic. I was thinking about everything that I want to design and for some reason or another I haven’t really felt as focused and productive as I could be. Perhaps it is because Keith hasn’t been feeling well (he is doing better, and almost back to normal). Perhaps because my saw was ‘sick’ too. Or maybe it was just because I was overwhelmed by...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #695: Lots to Keep Me Busy!

05-08-2012 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I had a pretty decent day of work yesterday. As usual though, I didn’t get as much done as I wanted. There always seems to be lots of things to do that get in the way of woodworking and designing. It seems that Mondays are like that sometimes, as I am catching up on the things once the weekend is over. I did get the Happy Birthday pieces sanded and oiled. I made two sets with the intent of staining one set and leaving the other one natural. They look good and fit on the topper n...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #694: A Fish Out of Water

05-07-2012 11:27 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

We often hear the saying that “something is better than nothing” and I for one, am one of those people who truly believe that. Recently, I had a problem with my Excalibur scroll saw and while it is out of commission as I wait for the part, at least I have my back up DeWalt saw to use so that I can still get my work done. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be easy. I spent the last couple of days drawing and working on other things. But yesterday I got to the...
