"Eagle's Realm "Intarsia #1: New Intarsia

04-30-2012 05:34 PM by wdkits1 | 3 comments »

Hi EveryoneBeen a while since I’ve posted any new intarsia but here is a sneak peek of my newest commission. Titled—”Eagle’s Realm” it sets in a 16” x 20” cherry frame with purpleheart inlay. Woods used so far; Walnut, Holly, Ebony, Yellowheart, Spalted Beech, Fishtail Oak. 50 pieces so far. I’m still designing the background scenery of the pattern which is the hardest part to get the proper depth . I like to shape, sand, detail carve and apply ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #687: Stage 1 Complete

04-30-2012 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

I had a decent working day yesterday. I was happy that things went the way they did, and having a good attitude about what I was doing made all the difference in the world. I think in writing yesterday about not being afraid to fail, I did well in convincing myself that it would be OK if things didn’t work out for me the first time. Also, hearing from others that I have so much admiration and respect for and seeing that they go through the same thing made me feel like it wasn’t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #686: "Patience, Grasshopper"

04-29-2012 12:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I don’t feel so useless this morning about things. After spending most of the day playing around with my ornament designs, I finally feel like I came up with something that would be appealing and would be able to be explained clearly so that anyone who tries to make them can do so successfully. That may sound like an easy task, but for some reason or another, this time it was a bit more difficult. Maybe because I was working with a new product that I, myself was not so certain of. ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #25: Additional Tools to go with a ScrollSaw

04-27-2012 11:28 PM by jerrells | 0 comments »

As I continue my scrollsaw woodworking I am getting interested in a lot of ideas. Most of those ideas would be better served with additional tools other than a scrollsaw. Now I have a reasonable good table saw, a very good router, and a Dremel tool assortment that includes a router table, drill press and other accessories. There seem to be times when I am looking for a tool to do good percision work on a small scale. It seems that the router tabloe is one of the areas where I wish I had a ...

Intarsia Basics #3: Let’s Do Some Cutting!

04-19-2012 02:25 AM by KoryK | 9 comments »

Thanks for joining us for the third installment of “Intarsia Basics” and this is where it starts to get really fun. Cutting out the pattern is one of the best parts of doing this kind of art. It takes a little practice to get used to using your saw. You can look up some practice patterns or just make some zig zags, loop the loops, straight lines, gentle curves, and circles on a piece of paper and glue to a practice board. Cut out some of these and you will start getting used to the “feel ...

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

04-11-2012 01:20 AM by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #663: And Yet Another Idea . .

04-06-2012 10:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

After a full day of working yesterday, I am still finishing up the site update. Sometimes I think that my own ideas are the things that slow me down the most. Just when I think I am getting caught up, it seems that I have another idea and then I try to get it finished and include it in the current deadline. If I don’t, I start to feel that I am not trying my hardest and I get disappointed with myself. So I push. I used to do the same thing when I participated in neighborhood craft sales...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #662: A Nice Quick Little Project

04-05-2012 10:19 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was spent getting things ready for the site update. Between finishing up the patterns for the new stuff, designing and cutting the new free pattern that I am offering and even drawing up a couple of additional quick designs it kept me pretty busy. I finished the pattern for the calendar topper and that is about ready to go. It came out to be 22 pages long, and includes all 12 months. I left the April and December months for Easter and Christmas respectively, as people can stil...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #660: New Projects Coming Together

04-03-2012 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was one of those days where everything was falling into place. I had a lot of odds and ends to finish up with, but the satisfaction of seeing those project get done was really motivating and it kept me pushing to do more. I love when that happens. I finally got the cheese tray photographed. In speaking with my editor, I also found out that I still had several weeks until it was due to be in New Jersey at the magazine. After running right on deadline since last fall, it was a s...
