ScrollSaw Information and Resources #51: How to Price your Scroll Saw work and sell it

06-03-2013 11:12 PM by jerrells | 0 comments »

First of all I will need to admit that I struggle with this area. After about four years of doing scroll saw work for both customers and arts and craft shows I have come up with MY set of rules. Now I will admit that I borrowed most of the information and ideas from others but that is a way to get sound advice. If you choose to use any of the information be sure to make it your own. By that I mean tweak or change it to fit your needs or environment. Here are the several ways I and other scrol...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1049: Getting There . . .

06-01-2013 11:01 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

What a beautiful morning I woke up to today! On this first day of June, it seems that we are finally getting warm and sunny weather. I heard, however that the midwestern United States got pounded again yesterday and I wish the best for all of you living there. Growing up in the Chicago area, we were very well aware of those violent storms that spring could bring and how frightening mother nature could be. It is certainly something that I don’t miss living here near the ocean. I had...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1048: Scroll Sawing a Dinosaur? I think not!

05-31-2013 10:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 18 comments »

Yesterday evening, I was directed to a forum topic here on Lumberjocks. The title of the post is “Scroll saws vs Lasers – Is Scroll sawing Doomed?” and you can read it here. Naturally, being in the position that I am in, I am somewhat curious as to what people think about this subject. After all, if scroll saws are doomed, then my own doom as a pattern designer for the scroll saw is soon to follow. For now however, I am not very worried. In reading the comments so ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1045: Nativity Key Ornaments Finished

05-28-2013 11:02 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I really want to thank everyone for all the nice comments on the Christmas box project that I posted yesterday. It meant a great deal to me – especially after the issues that I had with making it. There were times when I thought that I may abandon the idea of doing it altogether, and I am really happy that I stuck with it. In figuring some things out, I feel that it will open the door for future box designs using that construction method. As I said – it is a challenge to make ...

Thank You Jim Earl

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1035: The Start of Something "Fretwork"

05-16-2013 11:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It seems that there is always that bridge of uncertainty that I need to cross between one project and the next. It is when the afterglow of successfully finishing one project begins to fade and I am looking towards the next. Fortunately, most of the time I already know which direction I will be heading following the completion of one project, for while I am working on one thing, my mind is usually racing ahead and planning on what is to follow. Sometimes though, I get so caught up in wha...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1023: Moving Forward

05-01-2013 11:11 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a very productive day. Not only was the sun warm and shining bright, but manythings fell into place to start me on my next several designs. (Yes! I said several designs!) This is a good feeling. Perhaps after all of these years I am truly figuring our a process that works well for me in order to keep my new designs flowing. I find myself settled on projects for many different branches of my business and even got some things mapped out to develop some new area...

Plexiglass 2

04-30-2013 05:35 PM by nancyann | 6 comments »

Well my shipment of plexiglass came in Friday, and all I can say is What was I worried about! LOL I followed the instructions directions that Sloan’s Woodshop gave, using the double skip tooth #3 blades I purchased from them. I left the wrapper on the plexiglass, and placed duct tape on top of that. It was like cutting butter! No melting, no problems! Had the shape cut in a matter of 1 minute. I sanded the edges with fine steel wool. Loved it learned something new! Thanks to ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #48: Enlarging PDF Files

04-12-2013 02:32 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have a project that I am working on (to be posted in about a week) where I needed to enlarge a PDF pattern file. Have never done that before so I started out the very hard way. I would copy a section of the file, paste it into MS Publisher then draw some lines the right length and try to enlarge the pasted graphic to the size. Major problems were, time it took and the print were real fuzzy (pixel enlargement). Well after cutting the first several pieces I figured there had to be a better wa...
