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...
I did accomplish a great deal yesterday, although much of it was the type of stuff that I can’t really show pictures of. I spent most of the morning and part of the afternoon editing the photographs that are going to be included with my Snowflake Damask project for the magazine. I shipped out the project already, and I must say I really hated to see that one go. I probably won’t see it back until sometime next spring. I did get to spend some time to do some painting, although ...
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...
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...

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...

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...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1064: Patience and Flexibility - Two Ingredients for Success
Today’s post will once again be rather quick. On Wednesday night, we received a reorder for Haunted Masquerade kits from Artist’s Club and we needed to switch gears so we could get them done: I was happy to get this order so early in the year. That means that they are doing well and hopefully there will be more orders to follow. We immediately turned into “production mode” and got about half the order done yesterday. The printing of the patterns actually ...
