My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #254: Evolution of a Design

02-12-2011 02:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

I really love the way we get to interact with each other through places like this. I know that the internet sometimes gets a bad rap because people abuse it, but I also think that the way we use it here in Lumberjocks and other similar forums is a fine example of how great it can be. I have met people from all over the world here who I consider friends. I have learned a lot from so many who are willing to help others, and I hope I have also helped some people too. A couple of weeks ago, ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #5: The Business Side of Scrollsaw, Part 2

02-07-2011 12:10 AM by jerrells | 1 comment »

So as I continue to look at the business side of doing scrollsaw work, that is earning money for your (my) work, I am collecting information from all available resources. Most of this information will be used, in the initial stages, to attend Craft and Woodworking shows. There seems to be so much information available that with a little research one should be well prepaired to attempt this type of operation. So here is the information I have found, so far. 1. Research the type of shows ava...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #4: Scrollsaw - The Business Side

02-01-2011 06:03 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

As I am now semi-retired and looking for new things to do I have thought, a lot, about using the scrollsaw to make a little money. First I think I am fairly good at the process of making things not that I don’t have lots yet to learn. I know that some of you have a business side to your woodworking and/or scrollsawing. Where possible I hace read and learned from each of you. I have, also, searched to Internet for information about “The Business Side of Craft Shows” and ̶...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #242: A Variety of Designs Nearly Completed

01-31-2011 03:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

The weekend was quite a blur. It seemed that just about every waking moment was spent working on the four new trays. As with most projects, it seemed to take a bit more time than I had anticipated. This wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. It would only be bad if they came out crummy. I am happy with the results (so far) and in the home stretch on everything. I hadn’t decided to do four additional trays for the catalog deadline until about last Tuesday either. The original dead...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #241: Pictures!!

01-30-2011 04:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I really made good headway yesterday. Today I am in the home stretch of things and it is going to be really fun to see all four of these trays come together at once. I have never really done four at a time like this, but since they are all kind of different styles, it is rather exciting. I will get right down to business and show you where I am at with everything. I took pictures this morning, but nothing here is finished or even sanded for that matter. I do sand things to be pretty sm...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #240: Getting Lots Accomplished

01-29-2011 03:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

It was a full day of fun and excitement yesterday. I even got some work done. I like days like that because even if I don’t accomplish everything I want to, I made a big dent in the list and it makes me happy. My new designs are all ready to cut, but the first order of business was to set up the final cabinet left from our reorganization and mount it to the wall. We received several cabinets for free last summer and although they were not of the highest quality, they were sturdy an...

Scroll Saw files on your computer

01-28-2011 08:23 PM by jerrells | 11 comments »

I would like to know if anyone has a better method of filing and finding scrollsaw files on your computer. For about six months I hadve been dumping them into a folder called Scroll Saw Files (how cute). Steve Good posted a neat way to preview the files as you scroll through them – works OK. Do you guys files them by type, design or some other method. I would really like some input here before I get any more out of control. Thanks

Scroll saw Heart shape bowl

01-26-2011 08:51 AM by devann | 14 comments »

After seeing all the fine scroll saw work on this site I wanted to share some pictures of a bowl that I acquired from a consignment shop where I sell furniture and other things that I build. First off let me be clear, I DID NOT MAKE THIS BOWL. I contacted Martin and he said this was the place for it, just credit the author. I do not know who made this bowl. The story from the consignment shop owner is it belonged to some fellow and had been handed down thourgh t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #235: Two Designs Completed

01-24-2011 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Well, the cats are still alive. When I awoke this morning, all the electronics seem to be working. Nothing was chewed. No one got sick on the floor (that I have seen.) The water dish was only dragged slightly from its normal place, with only a little water spilled. It’s going to be a good day! :D There is another 4-5 inches of snow on the ground this morning (more flurries!) and it is really looking pretty outside. I need to go to the post office today though to mail out an order....

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #234: A Rocky Start - But It Will Get Better, Right?

01-23-2011 03:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Today is already one of ‘those days’. Within the first hour of getting out of bed, I already found several mishaps that I had to deal with. First of all, I came to my computer to read my mail and I noticed my Wacom pen tablet wasn’t working. At first I thought nothing of it, as the USB plug sometimes pulls out a bit and just needs to be pushed in. But that wasn’t the case. Upon further inspection, I realized that my cat Coco had chewed through the wire. She goe...
