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 #1212: One Bunny Toy Finished

01-07-2014 12:37 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As the deep freeze continues to grip both Canada and much of the USA, we here in Nova Scotia have been very fortunate in that instead of bitter cold and snow, we are having rain. In looking at our weather service, it appears that although we are slightly below freezing today and may receive a small amount of snow, our temperatures will be nothing like the biting cold that much of North America has experience. In fact, yesterday was almost ‘balmy’ as it rained for most of the day...

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...

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...

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 love of the Scrollsaw

01-19-2011 12:22 AM 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...

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...
