My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #121: Building a Bridge

10-02-2010 01:40 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It seems like I have been all over the board the past couple days regarding work. I don’t know. Sometimes it just happens. I have so many directions that I could go in and I need to commit myself to going in one. Or at least one at a time. Doing only one thing is almost impossible these days. There has been so much opportunity from many different places and I don’t want to let any of them go. I find that I do one task for a while and then get distracted and do another task ...

A Special Unicorn Project #3: Starting To Look Like Something

09-30-2010 03:24 AM by William | 3 comments »

After much cutting, the body pieces are cut. Some of the larger pieces I just ripped out on the band saw. The more detailed pieces, like the head and tail, are done on the scroll saw.In the photo above, I wanted to show the the general positioning of the one and a quarter dowel rod that runs through the inner body pieces. Remember that this is based roughly on the carousel horse plans. Whether building the carousel horse or something like this that I’m doing, it is very important to be ...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #8: Carilynn - Stephen's Mother

09-30-2010 12:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

After a long day of cleaning the house and doing some baking for the holidays, Carilynn made a nice, comforting supper for her family. She had a steaming pot of chili on the stove and caramel baked apples with raisins and walnuts baking in the oven But where was Stephen? He was supposed to be home before dark. Carilynn left her warm kitchen and headed for the skating pond where she was sure to find Stephen playing with his friends on his beautiful red sled. He will probably be too tire...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #118: Yesterday is Gone (Good!)

09-29-2010 01:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Yesterday was a day that I could have done without. It started out fine and everything was going according to plan until about 10am. I received an email from a customer saying that he couldn’t get to my website. The previous day, Steve Good (who hosts this wonderful scroll saw forum and site) had presented one of the patterns I had donated and informed his readers (which are over 5000 scroll sawyers) about the sale I was having until Oct 1st. I had also sent email notices to my now...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #117: Learning to Cut Padauk on the Scroll Saw

09-28-2010 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Boy, I really enjoyed cutting yesterday! This project is turning out to be everything that a project should be: somewhat challenging, a chance to learn new things, and most of all FUN. I haven’t really cut padauk on the scroll saw before. I had heard stories of how difficult it was however, and I have been a bit intimidated by it. However, even though it has some challenges, once I figured them out things went like clock work and it turned out to be a really pleasant experience. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #116: Finished Drawing - On To Cutting

09-27-2010 01:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It was a good day yesterday. Again I am excited today because I get to cut out a new project. I finished designing my next candle holder yesterday and I have an extremely beautiful piece of padauk just waiting for the scroll saw this morning. It is so pretty, with bright orange and dark brown streaks running through it. Unfortunately with cutting a scroll saw design into it, you tend to lose the pattern of the grain. It isn’t like a box or something like that, but it is still a prett...

these are two spoons i made for a friend of mine in Arizona, one is a ladle and the other is a spoon, the ladle is made from red cedar and the spoon is made from sassafras , i used my scroll saw to cut part of the shape, then i used my dremel, my foredom and hand chisels to create the hollowed out portions, these were the first kitchen items i have made and they were fun, although taxing for someone who has carpel tunnel or arthritis…but they were enjoyable to make and certainly enjoya...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #7: Stephen - The Little Sledding Boy

09-25-2010 06:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Stephen loves sledding. Although he tried his best at ice skating, for some reason he wound up slidng on his bottom more than gliding on his skates. Last Christmas Santa brought his a beautiful red sled. Stephen was thrilled! He couldn’t wait to pull that sled up the highest hill in town and come soaring back down. Now THIS was fun! From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures No more skinny blades for him! He is riding in style from now on!

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #6: Anna and Jacqueline

09-24-2010 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Anna and Jacqueline are sisters. Although they sometimes quarrel, they are truly best friends. Anna, the eldest of the two is quite a tomboy. She loves to run and climb and play sports. Her mother bought her a wonderful woolen plaid coat in hopes of encouraging her to act more like a ‘lady’, but Anna sees it more of a nuisance. Why does she have to be a girl anyway? Jacqueline, on the other hand, loves being a girl. Her favorite playthings are her soft, cuddly teddy bear...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #111: A Woodworking "Beary Tale"

09-22-2010 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Once upon a time, there was a woodworker named Scrollgirl. She loved woodworking of all kinds and making patterns so others could join in her fun and make their own woodworking projects. One day, one of her friends on Lumberjocks asked her if she could do him a favor and make some bears for her. She was happy to do it and went right to work. She picked a beautiful hickory board to create her bears, with a warm golden color. “This would be perfect” she thought as she sanded a...
