Intarsia Basics #6: We are Almost There!!

06-25-2012 01:00 AM 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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #182: Nativity Candle Tray is Finished

12-02-2010 02:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It is amazing to me how things work out sometimes. In contrast to the previous tray where the poinsettia candle tray took twice as long as I anticipated, the following tray that I cut yesterday (the nativity scene one) took only half the time I though it would. Hooray!!! The kicker is that I think it is every bit as attractive as the previous tray. I really kind of li like it. I used a simply scrumptious piece of maple that to make it that has a wonderful figure to it. It has some nic...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #30: Stolen Patterns - Seriously Sad

07-03-2010 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

It’s times like these when I kind of get discouraged. It seems like there are times when no matter how hard you work and what you do, it just doesn’t pay off. With the economy so tough, I am certain that hobbies such as scroll sawing and wood working are not high priorities on most people’s lists. I believe I have talked about this before, as I realize that it is an ongoing thing and that people are going to do what they can to survive. I don’t really feel that thi...

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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #482: Out of the Zone

10-05-2011 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It’s raining again this morning and I am starting to think that I should scroll saw an ark. I think it has rained for about five days straight now, and even though it isn’t violent weather, it just seems like a lot. I usually don’t let the weather get to me, and it certainly hasn’t now, but I have wanted to go for a nice walk in the woods and take in the sites before the leaves all fall. Each day I notice more and more of them are turning golden brown. I am wonde...

basket weave boxes

08-25-2010 11:56 AM by TJ65 | 35 comments »

Ok a little while ago I posted a project that was a box that was made to look like a basket weave. It is very striking to look at if you dont know how it is made and is really easy if you have a scroll saw. A few people were interested in the making of it so here goes- First thing first get yourself a pattern, there are a few books about making basket weave boxes. Or alternately you could make your own. Once you have a pattern- You need two different patterns( look closely as these are...

Tool Gloat!

02-28-2011 03:59 PM by Cozmo35 | 25 comments »

Everyone that knows me knows I am a scroller at heart. In 2008 my wife bought me a Craftsman Scroll Saw for Christmas and I haven’t stopped since then. My Craftsman Scroll saw has provided me a learning experience from which I have learned the art of scrolling, met new friends and mad a couple of dollars. But most of all it has allowed me to give my friends and Family things I have made which have brought joy to them. As far as the learning experience goes,....I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER P...

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...
