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

09-29-2010 01:51 PM 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...

Make a Scroll Saw Portrait

09-04-2010 03:06 PM by EMVarona | 6 comments »

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. When I saw them in the web for the first time, I felt the urge to learn how to make them. The process is shown in the link below. http://www.flickr.com/photos/edurink/sets/72157624851778690/

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

08-30-2010 10:29 AM 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

08-25-2010 11:56 AM 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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #80: Lots of Good Ideas From You All

08-22-2010 01:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I want to begin by thanking all who gave me their tips and advice on how they stay on top of things. Sometimes I think that we are so close to our own situations that we can’t see things clearly – especially when we are in an overwhelmed state of mind. The first thing I did was make a list of what needed to be done. Look the beast(s) in the eyes, if you will. I am a “list” person to begin with, but sometimes when I get caught up and everything is going according ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #76: Fretwork Cross Candle Tray and Charms

08-18-2010 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

After the initial delay of the morning yesterday, things went pretty well. The power remained on and as I understand it, it was out all the way to town for the time that it was. Although it remained overcast for most of the day, the misty rain subsided and by the time in needed to do the quick routing on the candle tray, the pavement was even dry. Things went very well. Since I changed my router bit, I have had little problem with burning. Apparently the dull bit was the culprit, and I...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #75: Back to the Drawing Board!

08-17-2010 02:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It turned out to be quite a productive day after all. It feels good to be back in the swing of things. There is something that I find quite comforting in following a routine and it was great to feel ‘normal’ and productive again. The welts are all but gone from the bites on me and I no longer feel need for the medicine (although after finding the proper one, it wasn’t as much of an issue) My it was cool yesterday. It remained slightly overcast all day and it felt so muc...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #65: New Musical Instrument Ornaments (With Pictures!!!!)

08-07-2010 03:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well, I started today off with a bang. Literally. I barely had the sleep out of my eyes and a couple of sips of coffee in my body and I began finish sanding the set of ornaments I was working on. I accidentally caught the corner of the sand paper on a holly leaf and it broke off. I went to the freezer to get my cyanoacrylate glue and I had a not so nice surprise. It seemed that yesterday I was pretty hot and pretty busy and I had put a can of Diet Coke in the freezer “just for a m...
