Denni,s the problem here is I am a wood worker not a computer wiz. Up loading a picture and commenting on it is one thing but, going to different sites an reading crap I don’t understand It makes me want to go back in the shop and build a life size replica of the Statue of Liberty made of hickey. I think this will be my last attempt to post projects on the blog. I will still come here, read and comment. If you right click and open picture to a new tab it dose show the full picture.

-- Have a great day.

Martin has a blog tutorial that I found very helpful in learning how to post. It’s a short video-type demo—easy to follow. (I’m computer-illiterate and could follow it.)

You might want to do your blog in a series and put a few of the photos in each blog (especially for those of us who don’t have high-speed—we have difficulty opening large blogs with mega-pictures). ;-)

I hope this might be helpful.

Dose anyone use sketch up for renderings. It is a free design software by Google. Its all in 3d, very easy to use. If you down load it, download Google sketch up not sketch up 7 pro. Pro only gives you half the program then they try to sell you the other half. Its great for the home shop or small company. You can Google tutorials on u tube. The videos show you how to use it. We use it all the time.

-- Have a great day.

I think you are having issues with picture size. That might account for seeing only parts of the photos in this forum. If you would like a free photo editing program, try downloading GIMP.
I see that some of the photos seem to be sideways. It could be that you’re turning the camera for vertical format. That’s OK, but the image has to be turned upright when you post it here.
I also see some blurry pictures. It might be camera movement (jabbing the shutter instead of sqeezing it gently is one possibility) or out of focus. Closeups are difficult with some cameras. Perhaps there is some way to manually correct for focus.
Your woodworking, from what I can see, is wonderful. We can hardly wait to see it more clearly.

Here is a link to a free photo resizing program that is extremely easy to use. That’s all it does- so uploads will be faster, save some hard disk size and they will display correctly here. Use the “Apply Recommended” option for the best results.
