Marble Machine

09-08-2011 08:18 AM by thiswoodshop | 5 comments »

I Stumbled on to this by chance, this is definitely a unique approach to woodworking. I love this. Per the description On Site: This is a Marble Machine (definition: A Do-Nothing or Rube Goldberg Type Machine) This is intended to be an awkward, overly complicated mechanism for the sole purpose of entertainment and to make noise in the process. People seem to enjoy watching gears turn and marbles running around in circles making noise. There are 16 gears hand-cut from ½” Bal...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #454: A Good Day

09-07-2011 01:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I had to do some errands yesterday and that took up most of my day. I also was able to meet up with a dear friend from my painting group in Bear River that I haven’t seen in about a year. It was a really good day on lots of levels. My bags arrived and I will be shipping out the second batch of skaters this morning. It will bring closure to another project and allow me the time to focus on finishing up the bird patterns today and getting them into a packet and up on the site. the ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #453: (Have you heard?) The Bird is the Word

09-06-2011 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

As I awoke this morning I couldn’t help but think that I made a good tactical move yesterday. Even though that above all things I wanted to stain in my bird ornaments, I made the choice to cut out the little skating ponds and get them ready to ship. Now I am the kind of girl that sometimes doesn’t look at the entire project. For example on the skating pond sets, I only seem to consider cutting the five characters on the scroll saw as the ‘work’ part of it. I tend...

Woven basket on the Scroll Saw

09-06-2011 08:22 AM by Leldon | 20 comments »

Hi all, I wanted to make this blog in order to show the process I use to make the woven basket that is shown in my projects. This will be my first blog, so bar with me, please! I didn’t come up with this concept of making these baskets, but after making 30 or so I feel I can make them better than the directions the author provided. These plans are available from Scroller Ltd. These are awesome baskets to make. And I sell them for a nice profit considering you are only using tw...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #8: Lesson 8 - Cutting Inside Curves and Swirls

09-05-2011 02:00 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

By now you have had some time to practice cutting inside and outside corners. While getting nice sharp corners is really important to your scroll working, one of the signatures of traditional fretwork pieces are the graceful curves and swirls that you are able to cut with the scroll saw. In Victorian times, fretwork was cut either by hand or by using foot powered pedal saws. It was a delicate and painstaking process and took years of practice to master and accomplish. With the intr...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #451: Sometimes "All Work and No Play" Makes Me Very Happy

09-04-2011 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

We have all heard the saying “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” but sometimes I think about that and I am sure that Jack didn’t do the same type of work as me. I love my job. I realize too that in that respect, I am very much the exception to the rule. Most people that I know go through each day doing their job so that they can come home to work on their woodworking or painting or being creative in other ways. I am very fortunate in that I have been able to...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #448: Everyday Business Stuff

09-01-2011 12:40 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Yesterday was pretty much an ordinary day. I spent a block of time laying out the patterns on the wood for my next set of skaters. I was planning to have everything ready to go by Monday, but then I realized that both here and in the United States was a holiday (Labor Day) and all the delivery facilities are closed. So Tuesday it is. I needed to reorder the plastic bags that I package the sets in and it will be interesting to see how long they will take to arrive. The company I use is ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #447: Lots of Stories - It Was a Busy Day!

08-31-2011 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well, I can’t wait to get at things today. There is so much to do and it seems like so little time to do it. I don’t feel stressed at all though, only exhilarated. It is the good kind of busy that people like me strive for, and depending on how things go, the next few weeks should be quite productive. I always seem to have stories to tell and today isn’t any different. Although yesterday started out simple enough, the day brought with it some interesting things that m...

I had a day off, on a Monday too. What a great day! Well, by the time I finished with all the phone calls and piddling. I finially got started on the collage. I did make some progress and finsihed the white tailed deer and started on the Elk bull and cow. I should be done cutting on it this weekend. Then It’ll take me time to sand the thin pieces. I’ll keep you posted.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #445: I Really Like When That Happens

08-29-2011 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

After a day of wondering and anticipation, we were fortunate to not be highly affected by the hurricane. We did get some rain, and it was quite windy throughout the night, but overall we did fine. We never lost power and this morning the sun is shining in a cloudless sky and even though it is a bit breezy, it finally cooled down to a comfortable level. Yesterday was quite sticky and warm – something we are not well equip to deal with here in Nova Scotia. Few people have air condit...
