My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #133: Enjoying the Small Successes

1383 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

The light has just started to appear to the east but for the most part it is still dark out. My neighbor, who leaves for work every day at this time has started his truck up and it is warming up in the driveway. Over the sound of the engine, I hear a faint intermittent scraping noise. I looked out the window in the semi-darkness to see if I could distinguish the source. It was the windshield wipers on the truck, which was covered in a thin layer of frost. Wasn’t it just a few weeks ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #129: Moving Right Along

1387 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I made good headway yesterday. Although I still have some of the pattern packet writing to do, I did get through much of it and I also got some other important things completed. I finished drawing and cutting the charm pieces for my Wright Inspired candle tray. I think the charms are as cool as the tray itself. They would make key chain tags or even a necklace. I found a piece of thin walnut that was as dark as the tray and it looked pretty nice. It took me only about half an hour to cut...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #126: The Results

1390 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I laughed when I re-read yesterdays post last night! Not necessarily because it was humorous, but because my expectations couldn’t have been much further from reality. Even the other members of the ‘pink cloud club’ were probably laughing at me when they read it. As I was sitting here at my computer, positively exhausted with my body aching from standing at the scroll saw for over six hours, I just shook my head and thought to myself “What in the world was I think...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #125: My Own Self-Challenge

1391 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I am really excited again. Already I know that it is going to be a great day. I got up early again (well – maybe I should say earlier) because I can’t wait to get things rolling today. It is a good reason and a wonderful way to start the day. I have already read through all of my mail and it is still pitch dark out, but that is OK. By the time I am done here and showered and done my morning clean up it will be late enough to get going. Besides, we are having the roof redone a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #118: Yesterday is Gone (Good!)

1398 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Yesterday was a day that I could have done without. It started out fine and everything was going according to plan until about 10am. I received an email from a customer saying that he couldn’t get to my website. The previous day, Steve Good (who hosts this wonderful scroll saw forum and site) had presented one of the patterns I had donated and informed his readers (which are over 5000 scroll sawyers) about the sale I was having until Oct 1st. I had also sent email notices to my now...

Scroll portraits are becoming more and more popular this days. Many find them very striking and most unusual. It can serve as a very interesting one-of-a kind gift.

A Keychain is Born ~ 8/30/10 ~ With Video

1428 days ago by dustynewt | 9 comments »

I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...

basket weave boxes

1433 days ago by TJ65 | 35 comments »

Ok a little while ago I posted a project that was a box that was made to look like a basket weave. It is very striking to look at if you dont know how it is made and is really easy if you have a scroll saw. A few people were interested in the making of it so here goes- First thing first get yourself a pattern, there are a few books about making basket weave boxes. Or alternately you could make your own. Once you have a pattern- You need two different patterns( look closely as these are...
