I had a decent working day yesterday. I was happy that things went the way they did, and having a good attitude about what I was doing made all the difference in the world. I think in writing yesterday about not being afraid to fail, I did well in convincing myself that it would be OK if things didn’t work out for me the first time. Also, hearing from others that I have so much admiration and respect for and seeing that they go through the same thing made me feel like it wasn’t...
I don’t feel so useless this morning about things. After spending most of the day playing around with my ornament designs, I finally feel like I came up with something that would be appealing and would be able to be explained clearly so that anyone who tries to make them can do so successfully. That may sound like an easy task, but for some reason or another, this time it was a bit more difficult. Maybe because I was working with a new product that I, myself was not so certain of. ...
I wonder how I will build a database like this photo. Circle is in the feet and I have no ideia.Gostava to know your opinion and help! Thank you friends!
As I continue my scrollsaw woodworking I am getting interested in a lot of ideas. Most of those ideas would be better served with additional tools other than a scrollsaw. Now I have a reasonable good table saw, a very good router, and a Dremel tool assortment that includes a router table, drill press and other accessories. There seem to be times when I am looking for a tool to do good percision work on a small scale. It seems that the router tabloe is one of the areas where I wish I had a ...
Thanks for joining us for the third installment of “Intarsia Basics” and this is where it starts to get really fun. Cutting out the pattern is one of the best parts of doing this kind of art. It takes a little practice to get used to using your saw. You can look up some practice patterns or just make some zig zags, loop the loops, straight lines, gentle curves, and circles on a piece of paper and glue to a practice board. Cut out some of these and you will start getting used to the “feel ...
The first step in making one of these puzzles is spending some time in front of the computer. You have to have an image to cut as well as create a properly sized puzzle overlay. If you are cutting something like a dollar bill or a playing card, you will still need to create a puzzle overlay. I have decided to make something for my wonderful Mother-in-Law who happens to be one of the most dedicated Baltimore Orioles fans I have ever known. I know she loves Brooks Robinson, so I found an ...
I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. As I watch the pieces pile up, even I can’t believe that I got that much cutting done in such relatively short amount of time. And I was there. Here’s what we have so far: You would think that this much cutting would be painful and boring, but it was much more the opposite. Considering that I have only about three full days of work invested, in the actual cutting, plus a couple of hours here and there, I think I am doing...
What a good day yesterday turned out to be. After the sluggishness of the past several days, it felt really good to have a day where I felt like I moved ahead and accomplished a great deal. I think my lull is over for now, and I hope that I can keep this momentum that I have and continue to cross things off of the list. My goal yesterday was to get through cutting the witch boots for the kits that I am making. I need 1200 of them to make the 100 kits and it is somewhat of a daunting ta...
Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...
I am a new member to Lumberjocks and am just starting to do this type of networking. I am also pretty inexperienced with doing scrolling, only have had my scroll saw for 5 years but have not done very much with it. A long those lines, I am also starting a blog of my own, www.scrollingdesign.com. On my blog, I am going to be relating my experiences as I learn more about scrolling and scrolling designs. There is so much information and I am hoping to be able to help others by telling the reader...
