Project Pictures Upgraded

01-20-2009 07:30 PM by Martin Sojka | 34 comments »

Hey, I hope you will enjoy a brand new update of our project pages. When entering a project page you will immediately see a larger version of the main picture. And the best thing is that this larger picture is not cropped anymore. Also, there is a list of all project pictures in a thumbnail format. Just click on any of the thumbnails to view enlarged version of that picture: Zoom Pictures button opens a slideshow view of the high-resolution project pictures. In addition to this upda...

Major Upgrade: Wider pages, Videos, Larger Pictures

06-11-2007 12:28 PM by Martin Sojka | 27 comments »

I’ve managed to finish some important upgrades today. Here they are in a list: wider pages – majority of the site visitors are already using 1024×768 or higher resolution so it is a good time to introduce wider pages. Content area now supports embedded images up to 640px wide – that’s the exact same width that photo sharing sites like Photobucket are recommending for the web use in their resizing options. As a result 640px wide pictures hosted on these sites ...

Mini-Browser or Asset Manager on Steroids

06-14-2007 12:39 PM by Martin Sojka | 26 comments »

I know we all love fancy time-savers.. don’t we? How would you love accessing your pictures or videos (maintained on the third party dedicated sites) directly below the text area when writing your loooong blog entry, project story or even new comment. Well, now this is possible here on the LumberJocks through our embedded mini-browser. You don’t need to open new window to paste in that picture anymore – do it 5 times per post and you’ll see how tedious this can be ;...

Taking Photos of Work

10-30-2007 10:03 PM by Blake | 13 comments »

I recently invested about $40 bucks on a large sheet of black velvet from the fabric store for a photo background. I just wanted people to know that It is easy to take great display photos with a small investment. Any black material would work well, including less expensive felt or cotton. Even a sheet would be fine. I splurged for the velvet because my wife decided she could use it for taking pictures of jewelry she makes as well. Just lay the velvet over your couch and give it good di...

Table Challenge #5-#5

05-30-2007 05:11 AM by jockmike2 | 13 comments »

2 days left and I got a finish coat of stain on tonight, after my wife got home from work and helped me get a burl. The city dumps trees and compost and dirt about a quarter mile behind my house and my cousin is on the DPW. So I have free access to all the fallen trees in the city. The other day I was back there with the quad checking out my lumber and noticed a big old maple burl I could’nt pass up. So I started working on it with my chain saw. I never finished it through the holidays ...

Workshop Pictures #2: Pics with a more artistic bent

10-01-2010 02:31 PM by David Craig | 12 comments »

Received some proofs of some pics after editing. I really like what Sue did with some of these. This one is my favorite. I love the chips and particles in the air - Like the Sepia tones used when I was sharpening - I like this pic, though I get teased about it. I am not holding the board with one hand while planing with the other :) I have the board in the vise and I am grasping it lightly for balance. And this is a nice one from underneath. Not usually a fan of pictur...

New Milestone

01-20-2010 08:11 PM by Jim Earl | 9 comments »

Well today marks a major milestone for me. I just got back from mailing out my first sale to an Art Gallery out of state. As you all has seen, I put pictures of my burnings on the internet and was surprised by an e-mail about a week ago from an Art Gallery wanting two of my Burnings. She said she had a gentleman wanting a couple of them. I sure hope this is the start of something. I am still looking for new pictures to burn on your boxws, any projects you may have. I am looking for a new woo...

09-28-2010 03:46 PM by David Craig | 9 comments »

Recently, I was lamenting to a friend about my limitations in the camera department. She wanted to take some pictures of me working so I demonstrated some tool use (well, the way I use them anyway ;), so now I have some pictures of me working in the shop. Lathing Here are a few pics of me setting up a block and turning with the roughing gauge - Sharpening Using the Work Sharp to put an edge back on the roughing gouge - I still can’t freehand on a grinder ...

"Workshop Principles" --by RusticWoodArt

08-17-2007 02:59 PM by frank | 9 comments »

Workshop Principles ….taking time out, as i waundered home after the days work, is an intoxicating drink of heady ale, where those who stop and drink can soon get lost in an-other time and era….And it is in these places where I oft do stop, to taste my dreams and set them free….so I invite you to come along and lets cover some ground in these forest of trees where ones, such as I can still dwell. These were taken around 7:00 pm the other night as I was coming in from a...

"Folk-Wood-Tales" --by RusticWoodArt

08-21-2007 01:33 PM by frank | 7 comments »

Folk-Wood-Tales ....deserted and hard pressed, peeled back from weathered exposure, i often think back to younger days, when those that passed me by gave thanks…. —-my scar is deep that runs within my trunk, and this i received at the hands of an-other, scars and wounds are but battle purging follies, while i am left to bear a showing of what re-mains…. —-tis better that i bear my pain of shame, in the silence of these forgotten woods, since when will come tho...
