ScrollSaw Information and Resources #3: Everything Includes the Scrollsaw

1307 days ago by jerrells | 0 comments »

It is interesting, to me, that once I have started this process now everything includes some element of the scrollsaw. My sister-in-law needed a new 4” x 4” mail box post. You know, simple get some 4×4’s and half-lap them together or purchase one of the ready made kits. NOPE! Not this time and not me, now. Yes I purchased the 4×4’s (recycled wood) and I half-lapped (yes, I got that joint TOOO tiight) them together. Now comes the fun part. I included victor...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #2: Dirk Boelman

1310 days ago by jerrells | 4 comments »

After a little reading I have run across the name of Dirk Boelman, “proably the most talented and productive designer and developer of fretwork patterns today”. You can do a Google search and find lots of information about him or go the The Art Factory web site and see (or purchase) his patterns. as I continue to research and resource the area of Victorian Fretwork it seems that there is a lot in good information out there.

My love of the Scrollsaw

1311 days ago by jerrells | 5 comments »

About three months ago, I purchased a scrollsaw to add to my small collection of tools. Now it has become my favorite tool to use. Easy to set up, turn it on and scroll for a few minutes or hours. Also, I think I have picked up the techniques of this tool faster than any other. I have completed about five projects (some posted here) and have a list of many more I want to try. One of the greatest things I have fount is Steve Good’s blog and pattern site. Once I found that, with all th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #193: Getting "Unstuck" by Changing Gears

1348 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I really like when I get so involved in doing a project that I can’t wait to get up in the morning to get at it. Today was one of those days. After feeling kind of stuck for a while on what to do for someone special on my list, I finally got the idea on Saturday and since then it has grown like a well cared for seed and looks like it is going to be turning out to be a pretty cool project. I decided to paint a wooden sewing box for a friend of mine who loves to do counted cross stit...

Gramaphone Restoration Project #1: The Initial Teardown

1354 days ago by Robster40 | 0 comments »

A good friend of mine had bought a Columbia Gramaphone at an auction a few years back and has had it sitting in his storage garage ever since. I’m not sure as to how old the actual unit is, but I could guess the 1930’s to 1940’s at best. It’s a pretty generic model and I suspect it wasn’t the deluxe unit by any means. Since he and I only met within the last year, he never bothered to do anything with it. When he found out that I was pretty good with refurbishi...

SPOON, SCOOP, COFFEE or otherwise CLUB/Challenge

1379 days ago by rivergirl | 50 comments »

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!! Yes, Virginia we now have definitive proof that cavemen did enjoy scooping coffee! In fact cromagnun man (and woman) were the precursor to modern day Starbucks. In response to my recent posting of a neanderthal period coffee scoop, that was presented alongside a lovely model crafted by my L/J friend Jerry W, it was suggested that we begin an archelogical study, a challenge or showcase if you will of scoops and spoons. Because it was my shamelessly (or was it shamefacedl...
