Delta scroll saw restoration.

06-05-2011 12:39 AM by saddletramp | 13 comments »

This is my first ever Craig’s List find. Started with a brass wire brush and a lot of elbow grease. Too hard to do with out removing the table so I did some disassembly (actually took most of the saw apart and cleaned and lubed). More wire brush and more elbow grease, and some Boeshield T-12. Some more cleaning and lubing, and some reassembly and it actually seems to work. Now how did that happen. ;^O And now I have a Question. I seem to have to consta...

Lathes and Turning #2: Honey Dipper

06-03-2011 10:09 AM by swamps42 | 3 comments »

I finally made a honey dipper. It’s got a bit of blow out around the honey groves. I think that not only did the lack of an appropriate parting tool hurt this spot, but the generally poor quality wood was against me too. It’s also much too big for a proper honey dipper in my opinion. But whatever, I made a honey dipper. I finished it with a canned butcher block finish oil. I think I’ll coat it with a beeswax/mineral oil finish later too. Unfortunately, I’m comin...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #358: Busy Times, Good Times

06-02-2011 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am a little slow out of the gate today, but it wasn’t without purpose. Yesterday was a very full day and I accomplished a lot. My early start paid off and although I thought that by the middle of the afternoon I would have a bit of a letdown and get tired, that didn’t really happy. I didn’t start cutting until late afternoon and finished up around ten. Even after that I was still excited about the project and got some of the general sanding done on it and the first coa...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #357: Inspiration

06-01-2011 11:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I must be excited about June being here because I got up so early this morning (just after 4!) It was one of those funny times when you are just lying there for half an hour or so in the dark and can’t sleep. Nothing is troubling you or anything bad like that, you just are thinking about the upcoming day and can’t wait to get started. After a while, I thought “what the heck” and got up. I think the cats think I am crazy. :) Yesterday was a good day. I will ha...

52 Weeks #21: A day late…

05-31-2011 02:52 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

and not a lot to show for it. I have been spending the past couple of weeks practicing with my scroll saw, since I hate to do nothing I decided to work on a few signs and cut the letters out with the saw. This has given me a great opportunity to experiment with different blades and also prompted me to work on a dust collection concept for my saw. I finished the first sign this morning. I have had this saying hanging in my shop for a bit on a piece of paper; thought it would make a good...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #353: Finishing Touches on the Polar Bear

05-28-2011 01:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday was one of those fun days of working. I spent most of the day putting the finishing touches on my Polar Bear Pull Toy. Sometimes, as with a project such as this, that is my favorite part of designing. All the gritty work is done and it is time to have fun and do all the little things that complete the project. I went to my favorite little store where I get a lot of the craft and jewelry supplies that I use. Actually it isn’t even a store in itself, it is a grocery store...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #352: Rambling and Some Pictures for Dennis

05-27-2011 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

There is something about polar animals that enchant me. I don’t know what it is. I have always looked at them as creatures of great beauty. It strikes me as odd because as a painter, I am quite fond of color. I love painting wildlife and big cats and playing with the shading and tones and making them look realistic. Most of the Arctic animals are various shades of white and grey. You would think that would bore me. However, I did once paint a snow leopard in greyscale and it was ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #348: Writing Pattern Packets

05-23-2011 01:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Here we are at Monday again already. It is hard to believe that another weekend has come and gone again. I spent the majority of the day yesterday working on the pattern packet for the Grizzly Pull Toy and I do believe that it is finished. I only need to have it proof read and it will be ready to go. I wound up putting 19 step-by-step photos in the pattern and that is what seemed to take much of the time for me. I realize that it may be a bit of overkill, but after talking to lots of pe...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #347: Photographing Your Projects

05-22-2011 02:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

One thing that I like so much about my job is that there is such a great variety of steps that need to be done in order to keep everything running smoothly. The saying that “necessity breeds invention” comes to mind when I am in the midst of doing so many of these other tasks. For someone such as myself, who is trying to make a living on my designing abilities, learning all the different aspects of what it takes to not only design patterns, but to produce and market them is a ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #346: And Yet Another Tray

05-21-2011 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Will I ever get tired of seeing how walnut seems to come to life when it is finished with oil and spray shellac? I doubt it. Walnut is just one of my all time favorite woods. I think that I could make just about anything using walnut and as long as I take the time to finish it properly, it will look impressive. I cut another candle tray out yesterday. The wood I used was (you guessed it!) walnut! This time I made a moose scene and it seemed to me that walnut was really the only choice ...
