"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

204 days ago by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #58: Embellish of existing patterns

217 days ago by jerrells | 4 comments »

I will be cutting a set of standard patterns but my goal is to have them stand out for all the rest who use the same pattern. There are several ways to accomplish this we all know. Let me explore a few and , if you would, add you comments or suggestions. 1. Choice of wood. Instead of using the standard oak or maple we all know that more exotic woods look much nicer when finished. The down side is they might only appeal to a select group of persons. 2. The use of gems, rhinestones to add...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #57: ESTY Pricing Decision

218 days ago by jerrells | 4 comments »

I am going to start stocking me ETSY shop. However the issue I find is that items like or similar to mine sell at half the price I get a local craft shows. Now I have enough marketing expertise to know that you either A) meet market price, B) sell a higher quality product at a higher price, or C) offer more and better services. Perhaps there are a few more but that is a start. I could make a reasonable return for the current prices on ETSY and (hope) to do volume selling). I see many produ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1224: Pretty Maids All in a Row

220 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

What a wonderfully busy day I had yesterday! Even though I arose early (just after 4:30) I got to work right away and remained focused for pretty much the entire day. I was excited about seeing my twelve little ballerina ornaments come to life as I painted them in one by one. What started out last week as a “just because” pattern has quickly turned into something that will be quite significant for me. Apparently I am not the only one who enjoys ballerinas, and as it turns ...

I thought I’d share some pictures of some of my older projects. All made in the last 15 years. Scroll Saw Projects: Intarsia roses on wall sconces: I cut jigsaw puzzles for a while.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1223: Color My World

221 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today’s blog will be quick and to the point. I awoke a bit early this morning and I am eager to get to work and (hopefully) finish up painting my little ballerinas. I had many requests from my painters that follow me to make the ballerina scroll saw pattern into a painting pattern. While the thought of cutting many of these little girls for production was a little bit intimidating, I feel that I am up for the challenge and didn’t need very much persuasion. It would just take a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1222: Fine Tuning

222 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Yesterday seemed to fly by faster than usual. I had so many wonderful things to work on that even though I got an earlier-than-usual start, it seemed before I knew it time had slipped by me and it was dark and I was running out of steam. After I posted my blog here yesterday, I found I wasn’t really satisfied with the photographs of the little ballerinas that were wearing the tulle skirts. The pictures (while clear) seemed to have not shown the skirts very well at all. I decided...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1221: Tiny Dancers

223 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am running late with my blog this morning. It isn’t because I was being lazy or slept late – actually it was quite the contrary, as I awoke at around 4:30 this morning and starting working – but it is because I was getting a great deal done and didn’t want to stop. But I glanced up at the clock and see that it is after 8:30 now and time for me to report in. So here we go . . . we will do this quickly . . . I had another wonderful and productive day yesterday. I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1220: Making Progress . . .

224 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be another day that just got away from me, although I did accomplish quite a bit. I spent most of the day writing the instructions for the Bunny Toy Replica project that I had shown last week. I find that as time goes on my woodworking skills are improving and I find better, easier ways to do things and I like to incorporate that into my projects. It is nice to know that I am still learning and improving. The rest of the day I spent working on my little ballerin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1218: Ballerinas

226 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I felt that I had a good and productive day yesterday. I tied up a lot of loose ends on the business side of things and then I was able to spend some time at the saw cutting out my newest project. That is always a pleasure for me to do. As I showed in yesterday’s entry, the next project that I was creating was a set of ballet dancers. I have always loved the ballet, and as most young girls did in my day, I took some lessons at the local park district in the city of Chicago. One of...
