Marquetry Serving Tray #5: More construction on the tray frame

84 days ago by jmartel | 2 comments »

2 night ago, I was able to re-cut some of the letters in an effort to not have any broken pieces. The S and W continued to split on me, but I was able to get a nice M, A, and B so I will count it as a success. Last night was fairly productive. I was able to use my router with a 1/4” bit to cut a dado in the 4 sides of the frame to accept the plywood bottom. The 2 shorter sides had to be stopped dadoes so that they would be hidden when the frame is assembled. Once I cut the dad...

Marquetry Serving Tray #1: Introduction/Design

96 days ago by jmartel | 1 comment »

My mom approached me about doing something for my father for Father’s day. Only requirements were that it was to be something for their boat, and that it have the boat’s name on it. Other than that, I had complete creative freedom. I came up with the serving tray idea since they frequently prepare food down in the galley and have to bring it to the back deck for eating, and they currently just use some plastic serving tray. For the design, I decided that a prominent Compass ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1015: One Last Tray (for now!)

496 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

It was a restless night. The wind was howling and gusting so loud that it was difficult to get a restful sleep. It is muggy out, but opening a window meant hearing the violent swirling of the wind through the trees as they complained with loud rustling and creaking. I would say that it is raining, but besides a sharp smattering here and there against the window between the blasts of wind, it does not appear to be so. The ground is only slightly wet and there are no large puddles. When the w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1014: Pocket Full of Posies

497 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

This will be the final set of pictures of the new trays. When I showed this tray before, it was only oiled and had its natural maple color. While it was very pretty then, I wanted to add some color to it to brighten it up: When drawing this piece up, I thought that the border resembled a ribbon. The one part especially looked like a bow and I thought it made a nice base for the simple flowers. While I could have chosen any color of the rainbow, I thought it would look nice in...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1013: Float Like a Butterfly

498 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I had a good day yesterday and I feel that I accomplished a great deal. My goal is to have all of the new patterns ready for the site update that we will do by the weekend. That gives me two more days of writing and editing photographs. I finished up my photos though yesterday, and that takes a bit of time to do. We had a beautiful spring-like day and the afternoon lighting is optimal for getting nice, clear pictures that have the truest color. For smaller items, I usually use the photo ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1011: Playful Kitties Tray

501 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

After two weeks of going full-steam just about every minute of the day, I am finding that I am coming down off of my adrenalin rush that I have been experiencing with all these new designs that I have created. It isn’t that I am out of ideas, or even that I have completely finished with these that I have before me, but I found yesterday that I was just kind of running out of steam. I spent the day working on the pieces for the article that I am doing for the magazine. The article is...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1008: Butterflies and Posies

504 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 21 comments »

Today I have more pictures than I will post. Little by little everything is coming together and I keep going from one project to the next to the next as things are drying. But things are beginning to come together now and I am seeing the finish line on most of the new things that I am creating. I don’t want to overwhelm everyone, so I will only post pictures of two projects today. The first project that I will show today will be the “Butterflies are Free” candle tray. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1007: Project Progress

505 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

The next several days, I am going to be posting a variety of pictures from the various new designs in their various stages of development. It may seem a bit mish-mosh, but I have so many things on the go here that I need to do it that way in order to keep up with everything. When all the projects are finished, I will do a recap of all the new designs in one post so everything will be all together. This is really a fun time for me! I spent the day yesterday working on several of the pi...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #999: Strawberry Fields Forever

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

As I said yesterday, it was our day to go to Digby to visit our dear friends Ellen and Bernie and their daughter Cindy and have a nice dinner. Cindy needed to work on Sunday, so our plans were postponed for a day and pushed into Monday. One of the great things about working for myself is that my schedule is flexible like that. Most of the time I am able to shift things around when something like that comes up and we don’t miss out on anything. The key there though is that we need ...

Routed Out Serving Tray

641 days ago by ~Julie~ | 15 comments »

I decided to use some of my wood stock to make some trays. I started with a piece of wood that I needed help identifying and had help from fellow lumberjocks to do that. It turned out it was birch which I planed down and cut to the size of 25” long x 7 1/2” wide x 13/16” thick: For 3” at each end, on the underside of the piece, I routed out a depth of 5/16” using a bowl bit: (This was cleaned up afterwards with a sander.) Here you can see the profile ...
