ScrollSaw Information and Resources #29: Scrollsaw Planning

06-07-2012 11:54 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

On my way out to the Scrollsaw several weeks ago I realized that I did not have the wood for the intended project. So it was either run to Rockler or find a different pattern. After pattern searching for about an hour I realized that this is pointless and a waste of time. Now I will admit to reading most all of Shelia’s blog’s on a daily basis. She always seems to have it under control. Also, I will admit that at one time, in my working life, I taught and sold Planning and Orga...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #716: On to the Next . . .

05-29-2012 11:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

We had quite a day here yesterday, filled with excitement. Not the kind of crazy excitement that you are probably thinking of, but we are ‘mature’ (ha!) country people and it doesn’t take much for us to be excited. My partner Keith got his new computer case yesterday. For those of you who don’t know, he isn’t only my fellow designer, but also the ‘technological genius’ behind Sheila Landry Designs. While I am the one who has most of the contact ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #715: Now We're Rolling!

05-28-2012 11:33 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It appears that I have found the solution for the dilemma that I was having regarding dividing up my time. I suppose that part of being a designer and the process of designing is that we learn more about ourselves every day. What may have worked for us at a certain point in our life may not be a good solution today. And even though we fins something that works in one set of circumstances, it does not mean that we can apply it to all similar instances and expect the same result. But at leas...

Tool Gloat #1: Delta 40-560 Scroll Saw

05-28-2012 03:30 AM by BrianC87 | 8 comments »

This may not be the greatest scoll saw out there but since its my first one I’m going to gloat about it anyway. I recently decided that I wanted to make some sort of rocking horse for my nephew’s 1st birthday coming up in a couple months. I decided on the Little Duckie Infant Rocker from Meisel Hardware Specialties. Since the project will have a lot of curves to cut out I decided I wanted something a little better than a jig saw to make all the cuts. Off to the local pawn ...

End Grain Floor #14: Leviathan Part 3

05-25-2012 03:36 PM by Nate Meadows | 24 comments »

Hmm, where was I…O yes. The red material had arrived and so I laid it all out on the table to decide which one would go into the eye. There was Redwood burl, Amboyna Burl, Red Mallee Burl, Roble Burl, Red Swirl Resin, and Red Sea Coral. I chose the Red Sea Coral not just because of its color but because it came from the sea and I am sentimental, I thought it would be cool to have it in the “SEA Monster” :) It was a bit disappointing because when I sanded it flu...

End Grain Floor #13: Leviathan Part 2

05-25-2012 03:04 PM by Nate Meadows | 6 comments »

While the Epoxy was curing on the Mother of Pearl, I started cutting out the body. I started with the lips which I cut out of Tulip. (I have to admit, the mouth looks creepy here:) ) I then started cutting the body out of the Snakewood. There was a small challenge here. I had to break the body up into section so that it would follow the pattern on the Snakewood, otherwise as the body of the Leviathan bent and curved the pattern would not follow it. I actually messed up on the first se...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #711: Double Duty

05-24-2012 11:10 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As you all have probably realized, things have been really busy here for us lately. It seems that the business is growing and that is a great thing for us – especially considering the way the economy is these days. We are really happy and feel so fortunate that things are working out, and we also realize that there is much to do ahead that is both fun and exciting. Finishing the latest wholesale order was yet another big milestone. Even though I had help with it, I was beginning t...

Intarsia Basics #5: Welcome back, Let's Start Adding Spacers and Shaping Our Pieces

05-24-2012 03:01 AM by KoryK | 11 comments »

Thanks for joining in again and I apologize for the delay. Hand is doing a lot better and it feels great to be back in the shop. Thanks for your patience and your encouragement to get better. In this section we will focus on shaping and sanding our pieces. In my opinion, this is the most important part of the process. Depth is what makes a piece really stand out and the more depth you use in your project the better you’re going to like the end result. We have all seen intarsia pieces...
