Scrolling with Asthma #3: Vacuum Cart

02-13-2015 07:47 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

So I was surfing the net and found a video about a guy (a real woodworker) making a cart for his vacuum and accessories. This is of real interest to me as I have got to be real careful of breathing and the lungs. So I said, ” I have already got the cart so just build the rest. Started by rounding up all of my vacuum accessories (I think) and planning how to best store them. I came up with a system of three shelves. The first on has a cut out to fit the different size vacuum ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1496: Just About Finished!

02-12-2015 01:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I spent the day yesterday finishing up my three new patterns as well as taking the photos for the pattern. It filled up most of my day (along with my usual errands and post office trip) and by the time I was finished, it was nearly bed time. I am going to be working on the pattern packets today, and hopefully by later on in the day we will send a newsletter out letting everyone know that the site is fully updated. As usual, it took a bit longer than I expected, but the results I feel wer...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1495: Micro-Cutting

02-11-2015 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Everybody likes a challenge now and then. I know that when I challenge myself, I not only usually learn something new, but I grow as an artist and designer. If I don't push myself into doing something that is a bit out of my comfort zone, then things start to lose their excitement. Sometimes it is hard to take the time to challenge yourself when you are self-employed. It seems that we are working from deadline to deadline, and it is easy to slip into the habit of taking the path of l...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1494: Immersed in Creating

02-10-2015 01:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is snowing out.Again.I must say that this has been one of the snowiest winters we have had here in Nova Scotia since I came here to live eleven years ago. We already have an average of 2-3 feet on the ground and they are predicting more snow by the weekend. I laugh at the predictions because I think that they are merely guessing. As I checked today's forecast before I began writing this post, it said "Precipitation not expected in the next three hours." Yet as I look out my w...

For Drew

I recently completed this for a family whose son passed away from cancer last year at 4 years old. He loved trains and I found this image through a Google search. The picture was one of my favorites of him and a train. The lower right side is a copy of his first time writing his name.I was privileged to be asked to attempt this project. The finished size is like 16 by 20 from basswood. I applied Ipswich Pine stain and about 4 coats of gloss lacquer. I was inspired and informed by the ...

Scrolling with Asthma #1: My dumb move with Asthma

01-19-2015 02:27 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

I have asthma and have for many years. Been treating it for the last year. This past week we have been having our kitchen remodeled plus I was scrolling some soft maple (of course without a mask). One or both of these sent me into a severe asthma attack that put me in ICU and an over night stay in the hospital. I was released the next day and currently on steroids for five days and a Doctor follow up first of this week. The purpose of starting this bold is to share information and to seek ...

Making of a 30" wolf head

01-18-2015 05:11 PM by grosa | 1 comment »

Hello guys,On my posts I show large scale work and I mention templates to cut cutting templates to cut on a pin router. I realize some of you might not know what all that means so, I decided to do this blog to show you what has to happen to create a large scale wall art. It would be nice to just cut it out on the scroll saw but I am limited to 26” on my RBI. You all know what that’s like. So I draw the piece full scale and make changes as I go. You can see this in picture 1 where ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1467: Goodbye 2014 - Hello 2015!

12-31-2014 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It is hard to believe that the year is done. I must be getting old because it seems like not so long ago when we were welcoming the new millennium. I remember how everyone was concerned that the computers wouldn't be able to handle the change of the date and people were so worried. But that was 15 year ago! The year 2014 was a good one for me. Like anyone though, I have had my ups and downs. I think the most significant thing that I noticed was that many of my family members, friends...
