Scrollsaw Portraits in a NutShell #1: The Prep Work

1150 days ago by KnotCurser | 17 comments »

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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #640: Sharing Our Passion

866 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

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 #946: Pushing to a Higher Level

545 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

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...

Audio Podcasting

2000 days ago by Handi75 | 5 comments »

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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1311: Some Beautiful Work and a Video From a Friend

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

Today I am doing some cutting for the topper for my banners and writing the patterns packet, so I really don't have much of my own work to show you. However, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to share a video with you that my friend Leldon Maxcy just made on how to cut inlay pieces for scroll sawn ornaments.I have known Leldon for probably about 15 years.  That's pretty long considering how young he is!  I met him at a woodworking show when he was only a ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1064: Patience and Flexibility - Two Ingredients for Success

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

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 ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1195: Snow, Memories and Frienships

223 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

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...

Marquetry #1: An age old craft

2219 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 8 comments »

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. ...
