My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1149: Romance in the Air

10-09-2013 10:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Despite so many things that are going on, I was able to sit down and concentrate and get the drawing for my next project completed. It shouldn’t have been the task that it became, but there were just so many odd things going on that it seemed that I couldn’t get the job going. Once I started though, I put on a couple of good movies and was able to stay focused and get the job done. I think in the end it is going to be pretty nice. The project is for the February (I think!) i...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1144: Finishing Up Drawing my New Designs

10-04-2013 10:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It’s funny how those appointments (no matter how early they are) can mess up the entire day. Yesterday I had an early eye appointment, and even though it only lasted for an hour or so, it took quite a while to get back on track. My eyes have been giving me minor problems lately and it was time anyway for my annual checkup. I find that I am having a bit of trouble reading the computer screen – even with my glasses or contacts and as a result, in the past weeks I have been send...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #998: Progress Report

04-01-2013 11:23 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

What an extremely productive weekend I had! It isn’t always that I can claim that so I am pretty darn proud of all that I accomplished over the last couple of days. It feels good to work hard and actually see some physical results of that work right in front of you. That isn’t always the case. There are many times when I seem to work hard and even though every minute of the day is spent ‘doing something’ there is little to show for it. But this week, it will be a bo...

Finishing Tips #5: Finishing tips #5

03-27-2013 07:03 PM by pjones46 | 7 comments »

One of the parts of woodworking that many would like to do better is finishing, and that includes me. On my quest to obtain the background I have bought books, talked with professionals in the field, and searched high and low on the internet to find the answers to my questions. Some of the questions arose as I was completing a project but others were generated by what I had read. As I have gotten older I say to myself, “I know I have read something about this particular procedure”, but I...

Vintage Tools #1: For The Love of Tools!

03-08-2013 12:53 AM by dj1096 | 1 comment »

My love of wood I owe to my Great Uncle Albert. I have a picture when I am about 4 helping him in his shop. He loved wood but was not a very “fine” carpenter. For him you could never build it to sturdy with more wood and of course this was reinforced by more screws. I loved what he exposed me to but decided I wanted to become the best carpenter I could be and that would mean finding a teacher to help me reach that goal. I met a luthier when I was about 12 and was all to happy t...

Making of a cinderella carriage bed #1: Wagon wheels

02-03-2013 02:24 PM by grosa | 16 comments »

This is what the completed bed will look like. These are the spokes for the 48” back wheels. This is the rim for the front wheels. These are the front wheels. Front and back wheels. The radius at the bottom of the spokes was cut on the table saw by locking down the miter gauge and pushing the wood into the blade from the side and it was done in 4 passes. We used an 8” dado blade. This is the back of the wheel where the axle will go into Ne...
