Curved front hall table #1: The tapered legs

12-20-2014 04:07 AM by exelectrician | 11 comments »

After completing my hanging tool cabinet build I decided to push myself to attempt some sort of inlay work coupled with curved wood. This table in No 77 of Woodsmith Magazine caught my eye and I decided to have a go at it. Here are the results so far. In this posed photo I have the sled I made for this project, with the tapered on four sides leg. the rabbets cut on the top and bottom take the contrasting dark wood (sapele) 1/8” inlays. Then 1/4” rabbets are cut on all four cor...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1584: Scrolling Binge

07-03-2015 11:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

One good thing about doing lots of types of creative crafts is that every time I get to do something else, it is new and fresh to me and I am excited about it. I love painting and I love the recent needle artwork that I have been attempting, but I also love creating cool wood things on the scroll saw. There is something that is so calming and peaceful about following a line with a tiny blade to create 'graceful wood'. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with everything that is g...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #326: I Finished My New Project!

05-01-2011 02:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Well, yesterday turned out to be a wonderful day on many levels. The weather was nearly perfect. The sun was shining and it was warm enough for a light jacket. I even had the top down on the car when I made a trip to the grocery store. It is amazing how getting outside for a while can do wonders for your mood. Even if it is a short time. I definitely had “spring fever!” However, there was work to be done and I was also excited about seeing my latest project come to life. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #873: Happy Monday!

11-12-2012 12:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Another Monday is upon us. Why is it the Mondays come so quickly? It is hard to believe that we are nearly half way through with November already and approaching the end of the year. Again. Looking back on the past year, it all seems to be a blur. I know we had a car trip to Cape Breton in there somewhere. Several days in the summer were spent cutting out witches’ hats and boots and Christmas stockings and packages. The day on the beach when I drew the snowmen. It all went by so quick...

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #753: For the Birds

07-05-2012 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a good and productive day. I not only finished up my ornament set, but I also finished the drawings for the next project that I will be offering. I really liked working on these. After the large production order, it was a welcome change to do something that was so detailed and precise. It was a good exercise for my mind. I have decided to incorporate the birdcage into a design of a small plaque that I will be offering free on my site. I like to offer a fr...
