"Eagle's Realm "Intarsia #3: Gaining on it

05-09-2012 12:09 PM by wdkits1 | 1 comment »

This has been a challenging project. The background has been difficult to get the proper depth but I’m gaining on it. . I will go ahead and finish the background as I have it drawn out but I’m sure I will change a few pieces until I get the effect I’m looking for. Woods used—Walnut, Holly,Spalted Beech,Spalted Sycamore, Yellowheart, Ebony, Fishtail Oak, Poplar, Lignum Vitae, Purpleheart, Afromosia, Vera wood, Peruvian Walnut, Tulipwood. 140 pieces so far.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #696: So, I Guess I am Back in Production

05-09-2012 11:12 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

A funny thing happened to me this week. I wouldn’t really call it funny in the comical sense, but rather it was more ironic. I was thinking about everything that I want to design and for some reason or another I haven’t really felt as focused and productive as I could be. Perhaps it is because Keith hasn’t been feeling well (he is doing better, and almost back to normal). Perhaps because my saw was ‘sick’ too. Or maybe it was just because I was overwhelmed by...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #695: Lots to Keep Me Busy!

05-08-2012 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I had a pretty decent day of work yesterday. As usual though, I didn’t get as much done as I wanted. There always seems to be lots of things to do that get in the way of woodworking and designing. It seems that Mondays are like that sometimes, as I am catching up on the things once the weekend is over. I did get the Happy Birthday pieces sanded and oiled. I made two sets with the intent of staining one set and leaving the other one natural. They look good and fit on the topper n...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #694: A Fish Out of Water

05-07-2012 11:27 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

We often hear the saying that “something is better than nothing” and I for one, am one of those people who truly believe that. Recently, I had a problem with my Excalibur scroll saw and while it is out of commission as I wait for the part, at least I have my back up DeWalt saw to use so that I can still get my work done. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be easy. I spent the last couple of days drawing and working on other things. But yesterday I got to the...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #26: Additional Tools to Accompany a Scrollsaw

05-06-2012 11:09 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I posted the forum topic here, and on other forums, and really did not get an answer. Perhaps it is not that easy to answer. Perhaps I misstated the question. Perhaps it depends on the type of scrollsawing one does (which in my case is mostly fretwork). Well after lots of conversation and thoughts I will attempt to answer my own question even if only for myself. In doing so I will make no mention of brands of tools but only types. First of all I think you will need tools to reduce stock to...

Intarsia Basics #4: Part 4 Coming Soon (Sorry)!!!!

05-03-2012 03:02 AM by KoryK | 9 comments »

I just wanted to update on the status of the class and inform every one of the delay. For those of you that do not know, I had a misfortunate (stupid?) accident and broke a bone in my right hand a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping that I had progressed far enough beforehand that it would not affect the class. Unfortunately the bones are not healing correctly and it is taking longer for ir it to heal. I tried again tonight, but do not have enough dexterity or hand strength to sand while I...

"Eagle's Realm "Intarsia #2: Just a few trees

05-02-2012 10:08 PM by wdkits1 | 2 comments »

I added a few trees to the background yesterday. Each tree is made from lignum vitae and Peruvian walnut. The lignum is brown now but will turn a vivid green in time. I use CA glue to hold the pieces of the trees together to form a single unit. 100 pieces so far..I have just about finished the design for the background so will be posting more progress pics soon.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #689: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like . . .

05-02-2012 10:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Hey! Wait a minute! Isn’t it just starting to get warm out? It is here in Nova Scotia anyway! While most of you are starting to get the garden ready and dreaming of days at the camp or the pool or the beach, I have been sitting here humming Christmas tunes to myself and getting my projects ready for the holiday issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. I was really happy about the responses I received on the bells yesterday. It seems like many of you are intrigued about...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #688: Clear as a Bell

05-01-2012 11:07 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Now things are come fast and furious. It feels good to be out of the mud and actually seeing the results of my work again. For those of you who are wondering, my kitchen is a mess. There is a corner of counter that is piled with supplies and finished pieces that still have that little something left to do on them before the final photography, and there is a pile of clutter. But that is OK. There is lots to show for it. Let’s get right to the chase . . . After allowing the pas...
