It’s been a while since I posted any projects:

These two came from the same chunk of oak. The colored one is actually blue and green – what you see depends on how the light hits it. It is topped with mesquite along with a carved maple pole. The other was to nice with all the inclusions to color, it’s finial is maple that was ebonized with India ink. All top coats are just rattle can lacquer. all cracks and inclusions were just filled – endlessly – with CA.

Very pretty. Almost makes me want to go out and buy a lathe tomorrow.

Come on, man! You do such nice work, figure out how to get a nice photo RIGHT SIDE UP.

It’s worth it. And it’s not even hard.

Funny thing about photos, I’ve save them in the correct orientation and once project is posted it turns them on its own.

Here’s a comprehensive list of ways and apps to rotate photos. The first one in the list is….

Microsoft Windows Explorer. How easy is that?

And that’s after a 10 second Google Search.

Rotating your photos is easy. Certainly much easier than the fantastic work you guys do.

Give your work the photo it deserves. Don’t embarrass it by posting a sideways or even upside down photo.

And for those who are judgmental about my judgmental photo attitude, I’m not the one who’s slinging derogatory epithets around… It says more about you than me.

I’m just chiding those of you who are digitally lazy. Figure it out. Do a google search. Your woodwork is much harder…

I agree that this is a great project. Some seem to struggle with the orientation issue but it has been covered ad nauseam. Please take a bit of time to figure this out and keep posting your projects.

Ya man!!! – I was hoping to get down there over the summer – hopefully soon – BTW, I hope the text in this reply doesn’t end up side ways :-)

To all, thanks for the constructive criticism and accolades on the pieces.
