My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #514: Bring on the Scroll Saw!

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

I was kind of proud of myself yesterday. I stayed focused. I was disciplined. I pretty much did nothing but draw all day. I did take an hour out to go for a hike in a new place in the woods near the house and that was nice and refreshing. The air was quite brisk and for the first time this year I had to put on layers of clothing to keep warm. But I was warm enough and the walk was just what I needed for a break from the computer. It reminded me how pretty things are around me. As we ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #513: I'm Really Getting Excited About This Next Project!

996 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Although I made great strides yesterday, I am still not quite at the finish line. Sometimes things are just like that. While I anticipated that I would be done with drawing this new set of ornaments yesterday, I just finished up the sixth piece last night and I was tired and had to quit for the evening. It was about 9:30 and I had worked on them most of the afternoon and my eyes just couldn’t take any more. I started my day early yesterday (the usual 5am) and I did accomplish qu...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #24: Finished 3 Frames, Wrote Some Instructions, and Made Some Pizza :P

1492 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be one of those days where the clock must have been spinning double-time. It seemed I got an early enough start, but before long the sun was setting and it was over. It is amazing how some days do that. It just seems that time is not always my friend. Besides the normal Saturday ‘chores’ of cleaning the cat box, kitchen and bathroom and doing some food shopping, I had the most intense craving for Chicago-style pizza. Now Nova Scotia has some of the be...

Intarsia Basics #5: Welcome back, Let's Start Adding Spacers and Shaping Our Pieces

795 days ago by KoryK | 10 comments »

Thanks for joining in again and I apologize for the delay. Hand is doing a lot better and it feels great to be back in the shop. Thanks for your patience and your encouragement to get better. In this section we will focus on shaping and sanding our pieces. In my opinion, this is the most important part of the process. Depth is what makes a piece really stand out and the more depth you use in your project the better you’re going to like the end result. We have all seen intarsia pieces...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #517: Almost There

992 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

I made a great deal of progress yesterday in my ornaments. I am truly happy with them so far and I look forward to finishing them up today. I finished cutting the final two by around noon, and I also remembered to take step-by-step pictures of the final one so that I can include them in the instructions. That is something that I sometimes forget about when doing projects such as this. I am so engrossed with seeing if things will work out as I planned, that I forget to do the obvious. ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #11: ScrollSaw Business - Making Money That Is

1084 days ago by jerrells | 2 comments »

So I have been Scrolling for about a year now and, I think, getting better at it all the time. First of all reading and watching all the tutorials I can find. Thanks a lot to Shelia Landry and Steve Good for their part in that. Then lots of practice – LOTS. As all of this comes to play, learning how to get the blade to go where I want it to, how to select the correct blade for the project, how to select the correct wood and then how to finish it to show off the work. It seems like an...

Myrtle Wood Burl #1: What To Do?

1076 days ago by Trev_Batstone | 4 comments »

I’m just wondering what to do with this Myrtle wood burl that I picked up last month while travelling through Reedsport, Oregon while on vacation. It’s only a small burl measuring 15” wide by 12” high. I gave it a nice smooth sanding today in preparation of creating a project with it, but haven’t decided what yet. That’s why I’m putting out ‘feelers’ here if any of you have any ideas of what I could create with it. I’m not in...

Woven basket on the Scroll Saw

1056 days ago by Leldon | 13 comments »

Hi all, I wanted to make this blog in order to show the process I use to make the woven basket that is shown in my projects. This will be my first blog, so bar with me, please! I didn’t come up with this concept of making these baskets, but after making 30 or so I feel I can make them better than the directions the author provided. These plans are available from Scroller Ltd. These are awesome baskets to make. And I sell them for a nice profit considering you are only using tw...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #357: Inspiration

1153 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I must be excited about June being here because I got up so early this morning (just after 4!) It was one of those funny times when you are just lying there for half an hour or so in the dark and can’t sleep. Nothing is troubling you or anything bad like that, you just are thinking about the upcoming day and can’t wait to get started. After a while, I thought “what the heck” and got up. I think the cats think I am crazy. :) Yesterday was a good day. I will ha...

Intarsia Basics #6: We are Almost There!!

763 days ago by KoryK | 13 comments »

Welcome back and again sorry for taking so long to get this post out. After my hand healed I was really backed up on some other projects. I’m almost caught up and will post some of those projects on my page in the next couple of days. When we left off we had all the sanding done and are ready for staining and finishing. I’m making two of these frogs, one that will need staining and one out of exotic wood so everyone can participate in this project. We will go over staining next. I’m...
