Box Building #4: Light Box Tweak

08-19-2011 04:00 PM by Kent Shepherd | 6 comments »

I updated my light box to make the lights more adjustable. The rods simply slip into the holes on the sides.I found an extra piece of an old stand for the top light. I bent it in my vice and screwed to my existing bracket. I think it is self explanatory, but ask if you have questions.

Box Building #3: Photography Light Box

I posted one of my boxes earlier in the week and promised I would blog my light box.If you have researched this you will know I obviously did not come up with this idea. In fact, I think there are others on Ljs. This is simply my version. I am a woodworker, not a photographer, so take all this with a grain of salt. As I develop the box further, I will add to the blog. I have not done anything yet I didn’t tweak over time, so why change now, huh! It’s called design evolution, not f...

What are your “Tips and Tricks” regarding photographing your projects? nbsp; Gateway to all Tips & Tricks Topics  Original Blog Posting8/9/11 Last week, I asked you how much effort you put into the photos of your projects.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #347: Photographing Your Projects

05-22-2011 02:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

One thing that I like so much about my job is that there is such a great variety of steps that need to be done in order to keep everything running smoothly. The saying that “necessity breeds invention” comes to mind when I am in the midst of doing so many of these other tasks. For someone such as myself, who is trying to make a living on my designing abilities, learning all the different aspects of what it takes to not only design patterns, but to produce and market them is a ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #77: A Day of Learning

08-19-2010 01:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a day of learning. For me, those are always good days. I had originally planned to take some quick pictures of the new project and one that my partner was just finished with and then spend the rest of the day drawing and working on the next one.

At least f...
