My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #751: Still Learning/Still Creating

07-03-2012 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I started my day today learning something. I suppose that is a good way to start things off, even if it wasn’t your intention. Some days I am sure we can get through the entire day without learning a thing. Here it is before 8am and I already learned something important. I feel like I am already ahead of the game and today will be a fine day. I got a lot done yesterday. I got all caught up on my financial and book work, (something that I have pledged to myself to keep up with th...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #34: ETSY Product Decisions

07-02-2012 06:43 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

As part of my decision to put some products on ETSY i did a little test. I choose three products, all clocks but a different designs. I E-Mailed pictures of all three to freinds of mine and ask the to choose one that they might take a second look at or be somewhat interested in IF they were surfing a WEB Site and saw them. The results: Clock A got 2 votes Clock B got 2 votes Clock C got (you guessed it) 2 votes. WELL I guess that helped my decisions process a lot.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #33: Deciding which products to put on ETSY

07-01-2012 11:22 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

So, in my last BLOG entry I posed that I was considering posting products on ETSY. I got a lot of good responses. Now the decision of “WHICH ONES”. If you do not know, ESTY has a “Sellers Handbook” available on its site. Problem is that it is all in little segments and, therefore, not easy to print. However, as I am doing a real careful search and study on this, I copied all of the important sections and pasted them into a WORD document, all 100 pages. They, also, s...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #32: Selling on the ETSY WEB Site

06-26-2012 02:20 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

I am considering posting my scrollsaw products on the ETSY WEB Site. Hoave any of you experience with this process and have you had success. The whole idea seems simple. Very low cost to post an item – 20 centrs for four months and then 3.5% or the sale if you make one. Looking at the site stats it seems to get a lot of traffic – 1.3 million page views per month and 3 million items sold. This really seems like a NO-BRAINER. YEs if you really want to be successful you have got t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #743: One Step Forward . . .

06-25-2012 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Two steps back. Well, you all probably have heard the saying. While we were forging ahead yesterday, I was finishing the last of my printing when I came across an error. I was doing the final proof reading for the last of the patterns before I printed out 150 copies and I was checking the item numbers of the DecoArt colors that I used for the project. I was sitting here at the computer and thought it would be easy just to type the number in the search box at the DecoArt website to make ...

Intarsia Basics #6: We are Almost There!!

06-25-2012 01:00 AM by KoryK | 14 comments »

Welcome back and again sorry for taking so long to get this post out. After my hand healed I was really backed up on some other projects. I’m almost caught up and will post some of those projects on my page in the next couple of days. When we left off we had all the sanding done and are ready for staining and finishing. I’m making two of these frogs, one that will need staining and one out of exotic wood so everyone can participate in this project. We will go over staining next. I’m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #742: Pieces Cut - On to Packaging

06-24-2012 11:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

We finished cutting the pieces for the 500 kits yesterday. Everything went quite smoothly. It took us less than three hours to finish cutting the 80 kits that were remaining. Not too bad, I think. Afterwards, we did a complete and thorough cleaning of everything. We vacuumed from the floor to the ceiling and everything in between. The whole process took about an additional half hour, which wasn’t too bad considering. We are now ready for our final stages of the projects. Near...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #741: Getting There . . .

06-23-2012 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

We had a really good day cutting yesterday. One thing that I learned early on when doing a project was to do the most difficult parts of it first and save the easiest part for the end. That way, you tackle the most difficult parts when you are fresh and excited. It wasn’t as if cutting any of the pieces were difficult, but some of the shapes were certainly easier and quicker than others. Of the four different sets of pieces, the Christmas stockings were definitely the fastest ones ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #31: Staining Baltic Birch Plywood

06-21-2012 11:52 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

OK this may be a really dumb question but here goes. Staining Baltic Birch Plywood. When you purchase it does it generally have some type of sealer on the surface. I just got finished cutting a fretwork clock out of baltic birch and staining it and it looks horrable. My only choice it to attempt to sand it and apply a different stain method. I generally get my wood from the local Rockler store but sometime purchase some from Lowes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #30: DeWalt DW788 Question

06-13-2012 09:08 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

On my DW788 where the upper part of the blade attaches it seems that that assembly is loose. There are two allen bolts that hold it in place but is seems looser than normal. The owners manual does not give instructions about tighten these or doing any maintainence in this area. Any adivice in this area – PLEASE.
