My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #590: Getting to the Finish Line

01-22-2012 02:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Did you ever have one of those projects that seems to go on and on (and on) and you find yourself wondering if you will ever be finished with it? I am afraid that is what I have been going through with the project that I am currently working on (the calendar topper). Perhaps it is because it has been a three part series and I started working on it in September that it seems like it is never ending. Now you all know that it hasn’t been all I have been working on, or even the main fo...

Farm - barn - toy

01-20-2012 01:01 PM by Muriel | 5 comments »

I have a dream … since I was as small girl I wanted a farm … never got one.Many years later my son received one for St Nicolas (in Belgium), he was 1 year old and played again and again … for years. Now the small plastic farm is resting in the attic like a treasure ! Few days ago I was asked by friends if I could make one big wooden farm box including “everything” ... for their little son.Remembering by son’s smile and hours of happines I said YES : a ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #587: One More Day of Drawing . . .

01-19-2012 02:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Even though I spent most of the day yesterday drawing, I am still not finished with the last sets of designs for the calendar. I really wanted to be, but it just didn’t happen. I took time choosing my subjects and it wasn’t as easy as I initially would have thought. I still have the months of November and December to finish up and I hope to do so today. Sometimes when I have too many choices it gives me more of a problem then when I am not sure what I will be doing. With so ...

Name plate for a toolbox...

01-19-2012 05:43 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

Okay so it’s not a woodworking tool box, but it does have a wooden scroll saw nametag. The story goes like this, Hayden (or is online name Hayd3n) a good friend who has helped me on a few projects (coffin , speakers for example) and will be helping on a few more soon like a couple of bed end trunks. He has also helps me organise the basement a little, and the ongoing joke is he is building his shop in my basement… Anyway, he is young and doesn’t have a lot of tools of hi...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #586: Still Drawing

01-18-2012 02:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am still working on drawing up the new sets for the calendar project. I spent the majority of the day doing as much and I am making good progress. Hopefully, I can finish up today and then tomorrow will be a day of cutting the pieces out and then on to writing the instructions. I made a little sample picture to show you: Today is just one of those days that I am short on words. I don’t know if that is a bad thing, or a good thing. I am quite focused on completing this assig...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #584: Sharing Ideas through Photographs

01-16-2012 02:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It seems that most of yesterday was spent catching up with things and getting back to normal. Being offline for the day caused me to really get behind in my emails and computer things. While I accomplished a lot on the saw Saturday, there was a lot of stuff that I needed to do on the website that took a bit of time. One area on the site that I can’t seem to keep up with is the place where I show other customer’s photos. I have decided to look into a way to simplify how that ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #582: Winter Is Here!

01-13-2012 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Yesterday winter arrived here in Nova Scotia with a vengeance! It arrived with a few flakes starting to fall in the early afternoon and within a couple of hours, the snow was blowing sideways and building up in drifts. It made me rather happy. I am not quite sure why I like the cold and snow so much. I think it has to do with the coziness of curling up with the kitties all wrapped in a blanket. I have good memories of playing in the snow too, and of enjoying outdoor winter sports like ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #581: Have a Heart!

01-12-2012 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I was gone much of yesterday, but I did manage to finish up my ornaments when I got home. I suppose that I was just too excited to leave them until the next day and couldn’t wait to see how they came out. I am really pleased with them and I hope that everyone else likes them too. After doing a final sanding on them, I dipped them in my usual mineral oil. I am finding this as my favorite method for finishing up fretwork and small pieces like this. It is quick and easy and doesn...

Making simple boxes with inlay designs in lid.

01-09-2012 07:50 PM by Jim Finn | 1 comment »

I make simple boxes, mostly of cedar with poplar inlays. There are many fine ways to make boxes and this is about the simplest. I make them 11”x8”x2 1/2” deep with hinged lid. 8” is my limit of the width of wood so anything over that will have a splice in it, which I avoid doing. I start by planeing and re-sawing the 1” thick rough eastern red cedar to 3/8” thickness on my band saw. I then cut strips to 2 1/4” to form the sides ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #22: What a Difference a Scrollsaw Makes

01-09-2012 04:36 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

As anyone knows who has glanced at my postings, I owned (still do but trying to sell) a Porter Cable scrollsaw. YES I had my rants about it but, all in all, I think that I made it produce to its maximum level. I never understood its problems because it was the only scrollsaw that I had ever owned. AND YES I defended it as an entry price scrollsaw because I feel that some just can’t afford the higher priced units BUT should still try the art of scrollsawing. I DID. Now with some extra money...
