My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #357: Inspiration

06-01-2011 11:41 AM 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...

Scroll saw Heart shape bowl

01-26-2011 08:51 AM by devann | 14 comments »

After seeing all the fine scroll saw work on this site I wanted to share some pictures of a bowl that I acquired from a consignment shop where I sell furniture and other things that I build. First off let me be clear, I DID NOT MAKE THIS BOWL. I contacted Martin and he said this was the place for it, just credit the author. I do not know who made this bowl. The story from the consignment shop owner is it belonged to some fellow and had been handed down thourgh t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #24: Finished 3 Frames, Wrote Some Instructions, and Made Some Pizza :P

06-27-2010 01:14 PM 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...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #221: Busy as a Bee!

01-10-2011 02:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

There are some days when I just absolutely love my job. Yesterday was one of those days. It reminded me why I fight so hard on those not-so-good days to keep this job and keep doing what I am doing. Funny thing was, it wasn’t that much different from most days I have. I printed out some orders that have to go out in the mail today, answered some questions from customers, laid out and cut out my newest project, made a good dinner, and I even took my walk in the evening. We have ta...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #788: Do As I Say, Not As I Do

08-13-2012 11:24 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I never for a moment think that I have all the answers. In fact, I often think that the day I stop learning will be the day I take my last breath here on Earth. Sometimes learning something is an entirely new experience. We see something fresh and new and it is exciting to learn about it and expand our knowledge. We have a feeling of pride and accomplishment as we learn these new things, and it makes us feel great. Other times, we re-learn something that we knew in the past, but over ...

Intarsia Basics #6: We are Almost There!!

06-25-2012 01:00 AM by KoryK | 14 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...

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

08-08-2011 10:39 PM 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...

Shaped Wooden Hinges #2: The Cutting

10-15-2009 02:39 PM by littlecope | 12 comments »

Yesterday the first installment ended with all the holes having been drilled for the two pairs of hingesIt’s all Scroll Saw work from here! I took a few minutes first to police the area though. It had gotten a little out of hand, even for me!!The work begins with slicing off the waste area which exposes the side drilling.Next is the beginning of the shaping. Side cuts first. These are a bear to cut!! Scroll Saws are not Chop Saws! They’ll do this sort of cutting, through about 1 1...

foot powered Scroll saw #1: foot powered Scroll saw #1:

07-16-2009 12:32 AM by Tom8021 | 6 comments »

First off I wanted to do some marquertry but shelling out $400 plus for a slow speed scroll saw was too steep. I tried to find a used one locally, but after a couple of months it wasn’t happening. Then I was going through some old issues of “Woodwork” magazine and found an article on building your own foot powered scroll saw. If you can find it, they are no longer around, it was the October 2006 edition. Anyway the guy who made it was Brian Condran (briancondran@aol.com) and...
