Patricks's Blog #1: Recreating a process - Videos - Hand tools, veneer, picking machine and chevalet

04-10-2013 10:09 PM by Patricelejeune | 9 comments »

Couple years ago Patrick Edwards from Antique Refinishers and the American School of French Marquetry whom I work with, was featured in 2 videos published by Graham Blackburn and bought by Popular woodworking. They have been kind enough to grant us access to those 2 videos. Here is what Patrick posted on his blog: Graham Blackburn VideosI remember when MTV first appeared and for the first time we could watch music videos on our TV. Then YouTube was developed and we could watch videos o...

Wooden Letters #1: Fancy Wooden Letters

03-17-2013 04:45 AM by Kevbo | 4 comments »

I’ve done whole names of simpler style letters, and I am learning a lot as I go. Some of what I’ve learned is stated below. I’ve made “Charlotte” and “Oliver” letters that fit together like jig saw pieces. Both Charlotte and Oliver are 2 years old and I wanted to give them something to help them learn to spell their names. Charlotte is my daughter and it is really working! These letters are a little fancier as they are for older kids and I had li...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #984: A Bunny of a Different Color

03-16-2013 10:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As promised, I gave my little bunnies a new look with a dash of some pretty pastel colors. I had mentioned that when I cut these little guys out the other day that I stacked them, so I got double the mileage out of my cutting time. The wood used here is 3/16” maple. That makes it an ideal project to stack-cut. I attached the two layers of wood using hot melt glue in the waste areas of the corners and the added thickness gave me a lot more control when cutting these precise swirls....

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #983: All Dressed Up (Just a Bit!)

03-15-2013 11:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I am rather in a hurry this morning because I have a great amount of things that I want to accomplish today. Among them is to get the pattern packet ready and put up on the site for the bunny ornaments that I showed yesterday. I was very pleased (and a little surprised) with the great amount of responses I received regarding these little guys, and I am thrilled because I really love them too. So without further delay, below are the pictures of them “dressed up” (just a bit!) ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #982: Naked Bunnies

03-14-2013 12:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Alright everyone – get your minds out of the gutter. It gets to be rather hard thinking up over 900 unique blog titles that would peak your interest. If you are reading this far than I have done my job. And all of my bunnies are definitely ‘naked’. So we’re good. Yesterday was a day that I suppose I could call a ‘banner day.’ It was one of those days when lots of things happened, I was terribly busy, but I accomplished a great deal. Although it was d...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #981: An Occasional Day Away

03-13-2013 11:01 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I took the day off of writing here yesterday and spent pretty much of the time drawing. With all the organizing that I have been doing lately, I really needed some extra time for some work. I am approaching my 1000th blog here and have been writing to you for just under three years now. That is a lot of writing and sometimes it is difficult to think of something interesting to talk about that I haven’t mentioned before. While I realize that probably most of you who have become regula...

HOW TO MAKE COLOR COPIES WITH YOUR BANDSAW

03-06-2013 06:22 PM by stefang | 32 comments »

Welcome to my shop. Yes, today I will show you how to make color copies with your bandsaw. 1. Just take what you want copied and place into your bandsaw blade like this. 2. Now push it slowly through to the other side of the blade like this. 3. Separate and now you have a perfect copy! Well, book matched anyway, nothing is perfect. This is the outcome after some hand sanding with 80 grit paper. I rubbed on some ethanol to bring out the colors, but it evaporated so ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #976: Two Down and One to Go!

03-06-2013 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I finished two of the three packets that I am writing instructions for. While I would have liked to finish all three of them, it just didn’t happen. But if all goes well, I will be finishing them up today, along with completing the site update. Keith has been doing some additional work on the site, as well as getting his own new patterns posted. While I am in charge of most of the correspondences with our customers, his job is to work on the website and keep it organized...
