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...

Current Project #2

08-31-2011 02:54 AM by scrollingmom | 0 comments »

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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #444: On to Cutting!

08-28-2011 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am going to make this a bit short today, because I am on a roll. Hopefully by tomorrow, I will have some pictures to post here. It feels great to be back in the production mode again. Even though it always seems like I am doing something, there is a nice difference to see actual results at the end of the day. We all know that there are different types of work and even though the unseen work is necessary, every once in a while it is good to see some actual results of a busy day. I s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #443: Making Good Progress

08-27-2011 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I must start by saying that yesterday was a very productive day. I actually made a great deal of progress in my drawings and I am happy with the results so far. As usual, I am not as far as I anticipated, but I think that I will deal with only thing at a time for now. The important thing is that the designs look nice and that people are able to cut them. I am working on a set of songbird ornaments that are really quite cool. I suppose that they could be used for Christmas, but they cou...

"Wo kann ich Holz finden!?" or "Where can I find wood!?"

08-25-2011 05:02 PM by Ryan | 6 comments »

I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs. In my desperation, like Gollum, I snatched several up and clutched them to my chest as though someone was going to steal them from me. I feel like an addict, trying to find a fix.. HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #440: And On to Designing . . .

08-23-2011 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Well what a great day yesterday turned out to be! I spent most of the day working on drawing up the pattern for the commission job that I am doing. It was one of those days where once I got rolling, I really enjoyed what I was doing and the day just seemed to fly by. Once I was clear on what was expected, doing the actual drawing was a pleasure and by dinner time I was able to send my client some sample drawings for his approval before I added the final touches. I was happy to receive ...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #7: Cutting Inside Corners and Angles

08-20-2011 08:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 29 comments »

So far we have looked at how to prepare our wood, choose a blade, cast on and off a piece and cut outside curves and corners. Now it is time we do some inside cutting. Most people associate scroll sawing with cutting fretwork. At first many people don’t understand that in order to cut fretwork pieces, you need to drill entry holes in the ‘waste area’ (or the part of the pattern that drops away when you finish your cut) and thread the blade through that drilled hole ...

Myrtle Wood Burl #1: What To Do?

08-17-2011 04:21 AM by Trev_Batstone | 4 comments »

I’m just wondering what to do with this Myrtle wood burl that I picked up last month while travelling through Reedsport, Oregon while on vacation. It’s only a small burl measuring 15” wide by 12” high. I gave it a nice smooth sanding today in preparation of creating a project with it, but haven’t decided what yet. That’s why I’m putting out ‘feelers’ here if any of you have any ideas of what I could create with it. I’m not in...
