  1. Journal Creating (Slightly) Better Thumbnails for the Showcase

    To put it mildly, the thumbnail images this website generates for projects and journal entries are terrible--small, fuzzy, and dull. I don't know exactly what the site does to generate the images, but it appears to scale them down to 150 pixels (on the longest side, I assume), then scale that...
  2. This is what's next...

    Continuing on with the laser engraving of photos here is the latest but not the last….. Before and after… Original pic Laser engraving on Masonite.
  3. Display Cabinet

    Here is a cabinet that I made for one of the offices we have.
  4. Presentation Rails

    Made these rails to display artwork. (Originally for a gallery show, but then I brought them home and put em up in my room…) The rail bodies are made from cherry plywood, and the endcaps are Spanish cedar. I made three of them… about 6,5,3 feet long. The rails are sized so that the gaps...

    Latest order for engraving by laser… onto Maple… Had to remove the background… it was a tad busy… Glad I have CorelDraw X6… makes it so simple..
  6. Serving Trays

    I made some serving trays for Christmas gifts this year based on the Woodsmith Oct, 88 plans. I made 2 of each so niece and nephew will get one of each. Frames are lightly stained slow growth pine and the bottoms are veneered Birds-eye maple and something dark and quilted ???. The label faded...

  9. Photo Display Blocks with Instructional Video

    I wanted a creative way to display a bunch of pictures that didn't require plugging in a memory card or battery powered digital frame, and I remembered the clear plastic photo cubes my grandmother had when I was a kid. This woodworkers take on that theme involves gluing pictures to a block of...
  10. 1st Bandsaw Box = Christmas Present

    This was my first attempt at a bandsaw box. It is the popular Pisces box design by Lois Keener Ventura. I made this from Purpleheart, Maple, and the thin strip in the middle is Mahogany. The box measures a bit over 5 1/4"deep, by 9" wide, ~ 6" high. It is finished with 5 coats of Formby's Tung...
  11. My shoehorn of fine-line veneer

    Hi! Today I have made a shoehorn of fine-line vereer in a very symple way. In Youtube is one videoblogger - Savvas Papasavva, his experience of making shoehorn of wooden veneer inspired me to make my own variant of it. Let watch my video of the process. (subtitles I'll add a bit later, but I...
  12. Coffee Table Photo Boxes

    It's been a few years since I've been active on this site, but I certainly haven't stopped making dust! Among other projects, this year I've been turning out these boxes for a wedding photographer. She sells them as part of her photography package to her clients as Coffee Table Photo Boxes...

  15. Wooden model of ballochmyle viaduct

    I made this viaduct from an elm that grew within 500yards of the actual viaduct it's based on. The bridge when built had the biggest stone arch in the world. It also featured in the film mission impossible. I built it to near enough a 1:190 scale
  16. Photo box

    Made this simple box as a birthday gift to hold 4×6 photos out of scrap pieces of white oak with figured maple inlay and redwood keys and inlay surround. Used barbed hinges and finished with Arm-R-Seal semigloss.
  17. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I thought I had seen a review of the different photo sites but can't find it. If you search for one of these every picture posted there comes up. Seems most Lumberjocks use Photobucket. Anyone use Flicker? Are there any major differences in them such as ease of use, problems, etc.? I want to...
  18. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Take a look at these beautiful pictures of our earth.
  19. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Rant On.. I really get discouraged seeing all the pictures that are posted sideways or even upside down. If I am looking at the forum on a tablet or phone, I can not turn the device to see the photo as the device has auto rotate and when I turn it the pictures turn and still are wrong. So...
  20. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I never had this problem before when trying to post a new project it flips my picture sideways. I could use some help.
