Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #12: "Reindeer Games" Layered Ornaments Part 2

07-29-2012 05:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Ok! So I dropped the ball a little! I honestly forgot that I was posting these videos here in the class. I suppose that there was a bit too much going on, and then I took a short holiday and it completely slipped my mind. I suppose I don’t earn the prize as the smartest kitten in the litter, do I? But hopefully, you will all let bygones be bygones and we can continue on from here in our little adventure. Let’s see . . . where were we? We had our pattern applied t...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #38: New Mall to Sell my Scrollsaw items.

07-27-2012 12:42 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have had my scrollsaw items in a small shop for about a year. Done OK however not great. As I have posted I have considered other venues but till yesterday had not chosen one. Yesterday I made verbal commitment to take space in a “MALL” craft store. This location was a grocery store until converted into a craft mall. All kinds of product from old antiques to new hand made items. Based on the research I did this mall is very well traveled. I first found out about it from a fri...

Woodworking Contest - Whirligig Wars Winners

07-26-2012 08:41 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

All in all it was a great event with a lot of great entries. I would like to thank all those who participated in the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest. When I presented the idea of holding a whirligig contest to Steve Ramsey (Woodworking For Mere Mortals) he and I agreed it would be a fun summer event. The response was overwhelming with over 6000 video views of the videos relating to the contest and many great comments from woodworkers all over. So it was decided early on that this would be ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #37: Exploring Options ????

07-21-2012 01:45 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have been exploring new options for my scrollsaw. New items I can make or new areas I can get involved in. Is this a bad thing or not. The thing I like the best is scrollsaw fretwork. Little tiny cuts and lots of them. I think the thing I like the best is when you are finished customers will ask, ‘how in the world did you make that”? Well after all the cutting and glueing is done it was simple, right?. Now I sure that this will remain as the majority of my work. Lately I h...

Scroll Saw Forum #3: Been Doing Some Experimenting

07-21-2012 03:45 AM by TripleB | 3 comments »

A good friend and I were doing one of our very frequent Think Tanks (sounds better than just talking) and we wanted to do something a little different than just typical scroll saw fretwork style cuttings. Basically we came up with an idea to make typical fretwork a bit more exciting. Simply by overlaying shaped pieces of wood on top of a portrait style piece of fretwork. We decided that I would come up with a pattern and She would do the hard work of cutting them out and making the pieces, th...

Scroll Saw Forum #2: Something Different For Me, Intarsia?

07-21-2012 03:26 AM by TripleB | 1 comment »

This pattern came out of the book by Kathy Wise, “Intarsia, Woodworking For Beginners”. My Nephews birthday is coming up at the end of the month, and he loves Trains, so I thought I would give this a go. This is my first attempt at anything that resembles Intarsia, even though I don’t really consider this Intarsia, more segmentation even though it did come out of an Intarsia book, so not sure what to call it. Here are some more pictures of it. The woods I used were...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #36: ETSY - TAXES how to do them

07-19-2012 03:57 AM by jerrells | 5 comments »

I have considered for some time starting an ETSY site and selling my product there. However after I downloaded that ESTY sales manuel and read it the section on SALES TAX frightens the STUFF out of me. It sounds like you have got to keep track of every sale you make and send a tax check to every little taxing authority in the US. This may sound as over kill however that is the way I read it. All my CPA will tell me (for FREE0 is if you owe a tax you have better pay it. Now there has got to be...

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 ...
