For Drew

I recently completed this for a family whose son passed away from cancer last year at 4 years old. He loved trains and I found this image through a Google search. The picture was one of my favorites of him and a train. The lower right side is a copy of his first time writing his name.I was privileged to be asked to attempt this project. The finished size is like 16 by 20 from basswood. I applied Ipswich Pine stain and about 4 coats of gloss lacquer. I was inspired and informed by the ...

Scrolling with Asthma #1: My dumb move with Asthma

01-19-2015 02:27 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

I have asthma and have for many years. Been treating it for the last year. This past week we have been having our kitchen remodeled plus I was scrolling some soft maple (of course without a mask). One or both of these sent me into a severe asthma attack that put me in ICU and an over night stay in the hospital. I was released the next day and currently on steroids for five days and a Doctor follow up first of this week. The purpose of starting this bold is to share information and to seek ...

Making of a 30" wolf head

01-18-2015 05:11 PM by grosa | 1 comment »

Hello guys,On my posts I show large scale work and I mention templates to cut cutting templates to cut on a pin router. I realize some of you might not know what all that means so, I decided to do this blog to show you what has to happen to create a large scale wall art. It would be nice to just cut it out on the scroll saw but I am limited to 26” on my RBI. You all know what that’s like. So I draw the piece full scale and make changes as I go. You can see this in picture 1 where ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1467: Goodbye 2014 - Hello 2015!

12-31-2014 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It is hard to believe that the year is done. I must be getting old because it seems like not so long ago when we were welcoming the new millennium. I remember how everyone was concerned that the computers wouldn't be able to handle the change of the date and people were so worried. But that was 15 year ago! The year 2014 was a good one for me. Like anyone though, I have had my ups and downs. I think the most significant thing that I noticed was that many of my family members, friends...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1460: Bringing Joy Throughout the Year

12-11-2014 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

There are so many wonderful reasons that I take the time to write here nearly every day. Of course, in the beginning it was to get our little company more exposure and let more people know we are here. But as time progresses, I have come to realize the many, many other benefits of blogging. Not only have I been able to communicate better with my customers and bring them information regarding a variety of techniques, but I have made some real and lasting friendships as well. That – ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1459: Little Touches

12-09-2014 01:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I wasn't even going to blog today but I was up early working on some things and I was so amazed at the difference adding just a "little bit" extra to my ornaments made. I have some ornaments and gifts that I am in the process of finishing up for my own gift giving and in looking at my SLD486 Merry Christmas Letter Blocks, I liked them, but they needed that little 'extra.'They were pretty made with nicely grained maple, finished with clear shellac: But after all, this ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1457: #1456 More New Patterns

12-05-2014 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Today's post will be fast and furious.   (Umm – we'll see about that!)After posting yesterday and beginning working on the pattern packet for the SLD486 Merry Christmas Word Blocks: . . . a thought occurred to me.  While I had drawn up an entire alphabet for the SLD487 Alphabet Ornament Shapes  (well – two versions actually) I had only intended to include the letters for "Merry Christmas" in the other pattern. But I got to thinking . . . &q...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1456: Some New Patterns I Created

12-04-2014 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

We are getting ready for another site update, and I have a couple of new patterns that I have been working on that I hope to finish up today.It seems that people really like word art. We often get request for  personalized projects and plaques that have names or sayings that our customers like. That is one reason that Keith decided to do some personalized plaques, and they have been really popular. I also love cutting lettering. To me, the prettier the font, the better. There is som...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1454: Welcome December!

12-01-2014 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is hard to believe it is December already! The autumn months are always my favorite, but it always seems that they pass by so quickly. Here in Nova Scotia we have had several days of dusting snow and lately it has been cool and grey. Winter is definitely coming.The beginning of the new month is also a significant day for me. My oldest child (Phil) has turned 31 today. It is hard to believe that it was that long ago when he was just a little guy. It seemed like in a blick of an eye he grew ...
