My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #574: Valentine Ornaments are Just About Finished!

01-05-2012 03:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 18 comments »

I had another good day yesterday, and pretty much finished the work on the new Valentine ornaments I was working on. I am happy to report that I didn’t even break any of the small pieces while I was sanding them and cleaning them up. All the scrollers out there know what a plus that is when doing something like this. It seems that sometimes breaking off small pieces is just part of the project at times. I find when I do break stuff, that the new Gorilla wood glue is excellent for...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #573: Progress Report

01-04-2012 03:40 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Winter has arrived here in Nova Scotia. While we had a bit of snow just in time for the Christmas holiday, it only lasted for two days and was just enough to make it look pretty. Even then though, the air was warm and calm. This morning however, we awoke to a blanket of white and biting winds. As I write now, there are large flakes of snow accumulating and everything around is grey. The air is bitter, too and for the first time we need to dress in layers. But I am ready. For the ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #572: Some Intricate Cutting Tips

01-03-2012 03:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am on the final day of cutting my new little Valentine’s day ornaments. While it is a bit slow going, it isn’t at all unpleasant, and I have been enjoying making them very much. Since I am cutting these pieces several layers high (four to be exact) and using a very small blade in order to make the detailed cuts necessary, it is very much a lesson in patience, and I have to resign myself to the fact that I am not going to be zipping around the pieces at the speed I do when on...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #21: New Scroll Saw Score - Part 2

12-27-2011 02:00 PM by jerrells | 6 comments »

Well I guess I ran a foul of the posting laws yesterday. In my excitement of getting a new Scroll Saw I assume that I posted it in the wrong area. Not that I have not seen lots of other posting place there that did not belong – Oh well lesson learned. As I have stated in my past post, I have begun reviewing my “business plan” for 2012. One of the items on the list is/was a better Scrollsaw. The Dewalt or Delta was the two of choice in my price range. I have been searching...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #561: I Heard the Bells

12-23-2011 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well it is my own fault that I am running late today. I just got out of bed and it is already 7am. That is just about unheard of from me. I usually get up somewhere around 5am. It is my ‘quiet time’ and I spend it not only picking around the web and catching up on emails, but also writing here. I have a lot I need to accomplish today and the last thing I needed was to oversleep. But I must have needed it so I will go with the flow here and get what I can done when I can. To...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #20: On the way to the Scrollsaw

12-22-2011 02:34 AM by jerrells | 0 comments »

An interesting thing happen on the way to the scrollsaw, so to speak. Several customers have ask for special designs the Christmas. Well without LJ’s and all the many friends and excellant examples here I would have had a much harder time. A special thanks to Shelia Landry and to Steve Good for taking time to respond to requests. Also, to many LJ’s who have responded, invarious ways, to requests for information. It seems that the more you get into this scrollsaw stuff, the more...

Building the shop #5: Floor Plan for Shop - just a guess-timate

12-21-2011 07:42 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 10 comments »

Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...

Building the shop #4: As the garage turns (into a woodshop!)

12-20-2011 07:46 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 7 comments »

Over the weekend I made a lot of progress on the shop clearing out two more steel shelving units, leaving only one to clear out and move out. As part of the continued purging, I decided to dismantle my second Shopsmith, give away the bench (I love FREE signs on stuff – it’s how I get rid of SO much stuff!!!) from the Shopsmith. I am keeping my first Shopsmith, for now, but as I acquire more tools I begin to think that the 6 foot long by 30” wide machine is a huge space drain...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #557: Making Progress

12-19-2011 02:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I spent the day yesterday for the most part working on the fence pieces for Ellen. I am happy with the progress, but as usual it is taking me far more time than I anticipated. I have everything mapped out in my head as to how I am going to paint these, and that helps the process, but it still takes a lot of time to actually accomplish. I worked on the candy cane piece for most of the time. While it looks simple, painting all the stripes is really the hitch. It is a lot of sections and ...
