Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #3: Applying the Pattern for Scroll Sawing

07-15-2011 10:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 50 comments »

I hope everyone was able to find the supplies that I suggested in the last part. If anyone had any trouble, please let me know, either through a personal message or on the comment section here and between myself and the others here, we should be able to help you. We are now ready to apply our patterns to the wood in preparation for cutting. But first of all you need a pattern. I have made up a sheet of some simple shapes that you can use as a practice scroll saw pattern. Just click on ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #394: And Now For Something Completely Different

07-08-2011 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Part of the reason that I like my job so much is that there are so many different aspects involved in the day to day activity of it, it never seems mundane or boring. Sure, it would be great if I could just scroll saw all the time and not have to worry about anything else, but I think that after a while, even that would lose its luster and not be much fun. Having a job that is fun and exciting is something that everyone wants and few people have. We have all heard the saying “It is...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #383: Decisions, Decisions

06-27-2011 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems to be one of those days where I am a bit unsettled on which direction to go next. I have about a week left for the deadline on the catalog that gets mailed in early September and I am not quite certain what to do next for submissions. Traditionally, this edition of the catalog is the kick-off for new Christmas items for the upcoming holiday season, but it also introduces many Halloween items too. Since it is probably the last of the large mailings to customers prior to Halloween...

When I was slabbing it you could definately smell the walnut but it was different from the Claro and English. These have great dark black lines that are marbled. Beautiful white sap wood and hart wood. These are pics of some of the slabs. Cutting Wood Is A Blast!!!

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #378: Odds and Ends

06-22-2011 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Boy, I got a lot of little stuff out of the way yesterday. You know those days – where there are a ton of small things to do and it seems like they just get in the way of moving ahead. I like days like that because when all is said and done, it feels like you accomplished quite a bit. I even thought through the next project that I am going to be working on today. I got a newsletter out. It was the second one that I sent in June, but it seemed that there was enough new stuff and p...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #375: I'm Starting to Plan the Scroll Saw Class

06-19-2011 01:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

As some of you may know, I have been asked to do a class on scroll sawing to present it here on Lumberjocks. I think that this will be a great way to introduce people to scroll sawing and get involved. Many of you that I have talked to already have a scroll saw sitting in the corner of your shop that is seldom used. I have had many requests as to instruction on how to use it properly, as well as blade choice, etc. As with many things that I do, in thinking about the class it is sometimes...

Scroll sawing #1: Ordering a New Saw

06-05-2011 04:29 AM by swamps42 | 6 comments »

I did it today. I went into Woodcraft, I admired the floor models of scroll saws, and then I bit the bullet. I ordered the 21” Excalibur. I should arrive Friday. I took out a loan from my best friend so I could buy the saw now, instead of in 6 months. This way I’ll be able to start using it now and have a HUGE stock of yarn bowls and ornaments for the holiday sales I’m a part of. Guy pal, who I borrowed the money from, was really sure I should get the Dewalt and save 300 ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #358: Busy Times, Good Times

06-02-2011 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am a little slow out of the gate today, but it wasn’t without purpose. Yesterday was a very full day and I accomplished a lot. My early start paid off and although I thought that by the middle of the afternoon I would have a bit of a letdown and get tired, that didn’t really happy. I didn’t start cutting until late afternoon and finished up around ten. Even after that I was still excited about the project and got some of the general sanding done on it and the first coa...
