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...

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...

New to Wood Carving #1: I have never attempted to do wood carving.

07-02-2010 10:50 PM by sandhill | 5 comments »

I have never attempted to do wood carving other than some chip carving but lately I have been fascinated by some of the work I have seen. I watched a guy in Savannah Georgia doing carving in front of a consignment arts shop and was captivated by his skill. My wife and I are looking for a motor home to travel the US and I was concerned I would not get to do any wood working which made me not want to do any traveling but now I think wood carving would be the ideal thing for me to do while on lo...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #521: Time for a Breath

11-13-2011 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I felt a great deal of relief last night when I printed out the final copy of my new pattern packets. it was almost 10:30 pm, and it was a good feeling when I laid my head on the pillow knowing that I was just about finished. I am still awaiting on the final proof reading, but for the most part the thinking part and organizing my thoughts is done and I feel a great sense of accomplishment. I am not sure why these patterns seemed a bit different than usual. Perhaps because I knew that th...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #3: Everything Includes the Scrollsaw

01-22-2011 04:56 PM 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...

Box making. My oppinion and theory.

05-22-2010 07:39 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 4 comments »

I have been making boxes for some time now. I was thinking today about my views of boxes and box making and thought I would share my opinion of the wooden box and maybe someone will take something away from this.Boxes to me are the best examples of functional beauty.A box is a square object used to hide away your valuables and jewelry. That being said I only put trays and compartments inside a box unless the customer specify. I do this because why limit the function of the box to just jewelr...

Wonderful Things #2: Sort of a Chest with Slideout Draw Trays

04-22-2014 02:12 PM by brucethecontrarian | 1 comment »

She Who Must be Obeyed spake thus; Seek ye out the land of Ebay and secure these 40 vintage wooden trays that have been made known to me and bring them hence. Thereafter shall ye build a cabinet such that it will hold all my supplies of craft that I might practice on them. And ye shall make it so it fits in a specific place and is neither too large nor too small. As She had spoken, so was She obeyed. The draws came from an old police station in the town of Preston (Watling Street...
