Making of a cinderella carriage bed #1: Wagon wheels

571 days ago 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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #515: Baby Steps Can Take Longer, But the Results Are Often Worth It

1025 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

It seems that I am out of the gate quite early this morning. I wouldn’t think I would have been because I was simply exhausted last night and could barely keep my eyes open. But I awoke today well before 5 am and it was one of those times when there was no point in staying in bed anymore and I figure I may as well get something done and take advantage of the extra time. So here I am. I don’t remember having much difficulty adjusting to time changes before. Perhaps I am gett...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #516: Quality Takes Time

1024 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I finally got a bit caught up with my sleep. The last couple of days have been odd. I suppose getting up so early has something to do with it, coupled with the time spent at the saw. Yesterday I felt a bit tense, like everything was going on too quickly and I wasn’t able to keep up with things. Every time I tried to sit down and work, something else would pop up that needed my attention. As time passed on, I felt more and more anxiety because I know I wanted to get to a certain poin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #788: Do As I Say, Not As I Do

745 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I never for a moment think that I have all the answers. In fact, I often think that the day I stop learning will be the day I take my last breath here on Earth. Sometimes learning something is an entirely new experience. We see something fresh and new and it is exciting to learn about it and expand our knowledge. We have a feeling of pride and accomplishment as we learn these new things, and it makes us feel great. Other times, we re-learn something that we knew in the past, but over ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #794: Enjoy the Process

739 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As time goes on, it seems that the world is migrating more and more towards instant gratification. We are continually looking for ways to have things completed in record time, with fewer steps and the least amount of effort. While I realize that this is not news to anyone, I just wanted to bring it up to make my point. While doing things more quickly and efficiently can be a very positive thing, I sometimes find myself wondering what the hurrying is all about. Yes, I understand when we a...

We never thought at the time to chronicle this project with photos, so I will try to muddle through with the few I have. I wish we got a photo of the pile of lumber and panels when they arrived in our trailer, but I can tell you that the site of them caused me to think – - &$#)@ WHAT ARE WE DOING !!!!—- :) Below are some shots of some parts layed out on the floor in an attempt to make some sense of it all.
