Rope Carvings

03-24-2015 06:09 PM by Luke Addington | 2 comments »

I prepared some rope samples a few weeks ago for a client meeting. Here’s the process I used: Layout Part I. Video for Part I of the layout process.

Photographing long or tall projects. #2: Adjusting Your Photos.

03-22-2015 09:34 PM by Druid | 4 comments »

Tips and Techiques #2: The Somewhat Invisible Hinge Tutorial

03-05-2015 03:49 AM by Jerry | 22 comments »

Okay, I was asked to post a how to for the, I guess I’ll start calling it “vanishing” hinge, since it’s not completely invisible. Anyway I struggled with posting this tutorial, because in this instance things went badly, but I think it’s just as important to publish the mistakes as the successes, because that way whoever reads this can see where the pitfalls are.
