Improving Dark Photos for Posting in LumberJocks

06-27-2010 06:40 PM by SawTooth1953 | 7 comments »

There are a lot of photos posted in LumberJocks that are barely passable for letting everyone see what you want everyone to see. I use Irfanview as my default photo editor. It is not Photoshop by any stretch, but with Irfanview (a free program) I can improve a dark picture in 10 seconds or less. I tested this last week by improving a project photo where I couldn’t see much detail and I emailed it to the LumberJock member that posted it. He agreed it was an improvement and replaced ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #23: "And Now For Something Completely Different . . . ."

06-26-2010 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I love the days where you can’t wait to get up in the morning to get going. I am usually a morning person anyway, but even more so when I have some fun projects in the works. Lately I have been in a ‘why do I have to sleep at all?’ phase and I can’t say that is a bad thing either. Yesterday was a good day. In the morning I finished off printing the material for and packing up three projects and three articles to ship out to the magazine. If it were a perfect day,...

I am going to assume you have read my previous entries for this series, this way I can just keep rambling without backtracking. So, putting a finished end on that base cabinet. There are more than a few ways to do this and unless you are building a galley style, wall to wall kitchen, you will need to think of a way to address this issue. There are more than a few ways to reach your desired destination and each way will give your finished project a look all its own. Let me begin by say...

Spice Cabinet

06-23-2010 01:30 AM by Troy | 8 comments »

THE COMMISSION  Last week, a gentlemen called me about a project he had in mind for his daughter. He brought over a custom, stained-glass panel that he wanted to use for a wall-mounted, spice cabinet door panel. The client is no stranger to woodworking but doesn’t have time and all his tools on hand or he would have done it himself. I am thankful that he trusted me to create his vision of a lovely gift though. We also had a good time talking about tools and such and I was pretty ha...

You’ll see the woodturning process from the very beginning along with edited clips displaying the various wood gouges chosen to cut and shape this segmented vase of mahogany, cherry, maple, and walnut. When the actual woodturning is completed we will break out the sandpaper and illustrate ...

Custom Cabinet Construction #1: Basic Base

06-22-2010 08:16 PM by rhett | 13 comments »

Thought I might start a blog to give some insight into how to build a set of custom cabinets for your kitchen. This seems to be on every woodworkers list, and with all the books and instructions out there, it can get a bit confusing. I will focus my attention on a faceframe set of cabinets with 1/2” overlay doors and drawers. The kitchen you build can be as traditional or as funky as you want to get. There are though a few guidelines that need be followed for everything to work out....
