My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #315: Two Short Videos for You

04-20-2011 01:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 30 comments »

Well, I actually was able to shoot a couple of short videos for you yesterday. I find that I feel much more at ease behind my keyboard writing than I do in front of the camera. I suppose that is natural, and I am sure with practice I will get better at it. These are both showing some of the highlights of the new saw. The first one shows the general set up and highlights the tensioning of the saw. I want to stress the point that the knob on the back end of the saw is used to raise and lo...

3 Girls & A Woodworker #5: Questions about Walnut and Scrollsawing

04-19-2011 03:14 PM by John_G | 15 comments »

I’m about to begin a scrollsaw project with a piece of 3/4” Walnut. My question is when i was sanding down the walnut ahead of time i noticed that it has “pores” or “open grain” or something in it. Is this normal for walnut, or is it something that will get compeltely sanded out if i spend enough time at it? Thanks Jocks…..

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #314: More on the Excalibur Scroll Saw

04-19-2011 01:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 20 comments »

I want to start out today by saying that I didn’t get the video done yesterday. There was just too much going on with things and my partner Keith and I were both kind of taking turns on the saw. We both have projects to submit to the magazine for the Holiday issue and it is kind of ‘crunch time’. as we were away for a while and need to really get our projects done. I did, however save a piece from my own arsenal to cut in hopes of making a couple of small clips today. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #313: My New Excalibur EX21 Scroll Saw!

04-18-2011 02:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 17 comments »

After several months of waiting and anticipation, the moment finally arrived when I got a chance to really get to know and work on my new Excalibur scroll saw! Even though I had the saw delivered to the show in Saratoga Springs, there was little time for me to enjoy it and really run it through the paces. I was very busy at the show and I must say that I was only at the booth a couple of hours a day, during which time I was usually talking to people who stopped by. Both Keith and I were ...

52 Weeks #15: Week 15- Balancing Wine, Knobs and Beds

04-18-2011 03:17 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Well although my week seemed a little slow to start I am happy to report that I was able to get a good amount of time in the shop. As of my writing I completed 3 different things. I have been looking at wine balancers a lot lately. Not entirely sure why as I do not drink at all but they seem really cool and I thought it would give me something to do with all of those bottle of wine that people have given us and just sit in our dining room buffet. My other thought on these is to make a number ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #312: Ready for Cutting

04-17-2011 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Just when I thought I was in the clear from this cold, it seems to have reared its ugly head again. Yesterday. around mid afternoon, I began to get pain in my head. It felt like it was in my sinuses, but I barely felt stuffy. By 9pm, I needed to take some medicine for it because it was really getting to me and not subsiding. I awoke in the middle of the night, again stuffed to the point where I couldn’t breath and had to take another dose. This morning my nose is clear, but I still...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #310: The Lectures

04-15-2011 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I can’t believe that I am still sleeping like I am. I am not sure if it is the cold or the relief of returning home or the adrenalin level finally returning to normal after everything. Maybe it is a little bit of everything. I just feel like I have never been so tired in all my life. The cold is really on its way out now, with just a little congestion and sore throat left. I haven’t taken medicine for it is a couple of days, and the fact that it is tolerable without anythi...

Marshmallow Catapult

04-15-2011 12:43 PM by Lockwatcher | 7 comments »

When I pulled this off of my cabinet, I did not expect so many would like to build these. Well, I took one apart so that we could make some notes – and then detail construction. Below: The marshmallow catapult in it’s finished form. As you can see below, the catapult concists of only 6 wooden parts & some miscellaneous hardware, all easy to build with handtools if need be. When we did this project with the scouts, we put it together as a kit that they could sand &#...
