Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #4: Let the Scrolling Begin - Casting on and Casting Off

07-21-2011 02:04 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 69 comments »

Now that everyone has their patterns applied to the wood, we are finally ready to turn on our saws and do some cutting. Since the practice patterns that I have given you have no inside cuts, we are going to learn some practical ways to start and finish our cutting lines. I call this ‘casting on’ and ‘casting off’ the wood. Most people – especially when starting out – just aim for the part of the design that is closest to the edge and start cutting. ...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #5: Cutting Outside Curves

07-30-2011 12:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 23 comments »

Now that we have had a chance to practice casting on and off, we are going to practice a bit more on cutting outside curves. Cutting curves is probably one of the easiest things to do on a scroll saw. Most designs consist mainly of curved lines, with occasional straight runs from time to time. Once you get used to cutting curves and turning corners accurately, you are well on your way to being a great scroller. One thing that is important to remember is that the blade is stationa...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1044: The Christmas Box

05-27-2013 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 18 comments »

After a somewhat bumpy road of construction and design, I have finished my Christmas box. I say the road was ‘bumpy’ because there were a few issues that I had in both the design and the execution of creating this box. I can however say that I have ironed out all of those bumps and recreating this pieces should be very easy for those who wish to do so. I am happy with the results. Those of you who read saw that my first attempt of cutting the lid design included the misspel...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1221: Tiny Dancers

01-17-2014 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am running late with my blog this morning. It isn’t because I was being lazy or slept late – actually it was quite the contrary, as I awoke at around 4:30 this morning and starting working – but it is because I was getting a great deal done and didn’t want to stop. But I glanced up at the clock and see that it is after 8:30 now and time for me to report in. So here we go . . . we will do this quickly . . . I had another wonderful and productive day yesterday. I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #624: We Can Chalk Another One Up!

02-25-2012 11:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

While simple, this latest project took a little figuring out. As I stated yesterday, I wasn’t really happy with some of the things that I initially drew and like many of the projects I design, it took some revisions to get it how I wanted it to be. I know sometimes people think I just draw, cut and I am done, but lots of times there are some little things that don’t go together quite right or feel right and I have to tweak things just a bit and re-cut or remake them. Other times...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #611: Wrapping Things Up

02-12-2012 11:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

It snowed last night. Not quite the storm that they were predicting, but then again it never seems to be. I think that is how we become complacent and then when we are least expecting it we get hit. I can’t really tell how much yet because it is still dark out, but everything is white and I haven’t heard the scraping of the plows against the pavement yet. So I expect it isn’t too much. I am thinking that I would like to take a walk in the woods today. I haven’t d...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1308: A New Scroll Sawing Blog and a Free Pattern

05-03-2014 10:53 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was feeling a bit under the weather yesterday and not quite myself. It was nothing to worry about, and I think it was just a passing thing as today I feel much more 'normal'.  Fortunately, it doesn't happen often, as I accomplished very little in the way of work.  I suppose though that a good rest was needed as it seemed to have done the trick and today should be a great day. As a result, I have no progress reports on what I am working on.  I guess that goes ...

11-04-2012 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 17 comments »

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Those of you who read know that I frequently wish that my days had more hours in them, and today is the one day of the year that my wish actually comes true. A 25 hour day! Now how I am going to use that extra hour is hard to decide. There are so many wonderful directions that I am heading in right now that I could choose from a variety of tasks. Yesterday was a very productive and happy day for me. All week I was working on a new ornament ...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #12: "Reindeer Games" Layered Ornaments Part 2

07-29-2012 05:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Ok! So I dropped the ball a little! I honestly forgot that I was posting these videos here in the class. I suppose that there was a bit too much going on, and then I took a short holiday and it completely slipped my mind. I suppose I don’t earn the prize as the smartest kitten in the litter, do I? But hopefully, you will all let bygones be bygones and we can continue on from here in our little adventure. Let’s see . . . where were we? We had our pattern applied t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1003: Production Cutting

04-06-2013 11:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Well, guys and girls – I can tell you already that this is going to be a short blog today. Every time I do something here on Lumberjocks (add a photo, comment or blog entry) it is taking me about five minutes for it to do so. I am happy that I don’t have a lot of pictures to share today. There are days the site just gets like that, and today I have too much to do to wait for it to “wake up!” :) Yesterday I switched gears and Keith and I did some of the ‘prod...
