I was asked by at least a dozen people over the last few months how I do my portraits. Particularly, how I get up to the point of actually putting blade to wood. In other words…… the Prep Work. I thought I would make Part 1 of my “Portrait Scrollsawing in a NutShell Blog” cover just that topic – getting everything ready to actually start sawing. The only “prep work” part I won’t cover in this section is designing the pattern itself – that will be at LEAST one, if not multiple future b...
Yesterday I got a little bit side tracked. Not really too far off the path I was heading, but just enough to change gears for a day and try something new. So it was for a good cause. I often receive many comments from people that I call ‘regulars’ here on the Lumberjock site. Even though this site is quite large at over 50,000 members, as with any place, we seem to fall into a niche or corner of the site where we feel accepted and comfortable. I am not different, as when I wr...

There are many different avenues that one can take and still be on a creative path. While having choices is good, there are times when there are almost too many things to choose from and only so many hours in the day. While most of us are familiar with the phrase ‘spreading ourselves too thin’, there are times when things are not as defined as we would like them to be as far as which path to follow and it is hard not to want to do everything at once. I often feel that this is t...
Hi all; After reading Douglas’s blog on marquetry I figured I would add a few comments about the fine art of marquetry. Rather than do a lot of typing here, it’s easier to just provide a link to the page on my site. I’ve always been a bit lazy. This is listed under the scroll saw index, as well as the veneering index. http://www.prowoodworkingtips.com/Marquetry_Basics.html I hope it provides some additional information for anyone wanting to give this a try. ...
As the sun begins to illuminate the morning sky, I look out and notice that once again the snow is gently falling on us here in Nova Scotia. This time is isn’t the windy, violent type of snowfall that occurred the other day, but rather the soft, large flakes that gently float to the ground. It is getting lighter out, and I can see that already several fresh inches of snow have accumulated on the ground. As yesterday things were all cleared up from the weekend storm and once again th...

Good morning on this beautiful Monday. Some time over the weekend, the season of autumn crept in and it is amazing how profound the changes in the morning are even though it is only a few days old. As I wake up each morning, I notice that it is just a bit darker outside, and the cool, crisp air simply smells of the change of season. I look across the road to the trees along the river and each day notice that they are beginning to blush a bit and every so slightly the leaves are changing c...
Everyone, I would like to Apologize with this Post, I have missed a Detail in my Video Editing, and a Fellow Jock has Brought it to my Attention and now i feel Embarrassed about it lol. There is no Audio in the First part of the Video, I would say pretty close to about 25 Seconds to 40 Seconds into the Video there is no Audio, The Scrolling Text at the bottom of the Video indicate the Fast Forwarding of the Video and that DON’T For sure have audio, that was on purpose so I can reduse...
I have spent a little time thinking about Video and Audio Podcasting. I am Slightly Shy in both aspects of Video and Audio. But I have been working on this shiness by overcoming it in Video and Audio Podcast. I have decided that, As long as I get my point across, others learn from my audio and video, then I am more satified with it then what I look like no matter how goofy or entertaining I may or may not be or even as boring as I may be, information, demonstrations and how-tos are a v...
