« Part 1: Pics of me ummmm... Working...Yeah Part 2 of Workshop Pictures series no next part

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 -

Rounding a log, roughing gouge

Like the Sepia tones used when I was sharpening -

Sharpening Roughing Gouge

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.

Block plane on board

And this is a nice one from underneath. Not usually a fan of pictures of me, but I like this one -

Thanks for viewing all. Happy Friday!

Sue did a great job, she should be a professional, well actually she is, she just doesn’t call herself that. She is very artistic and what a valuable friend. Very nice too, nice pics.

Pretty neat. There is no way to get good pictures of yourself without someone else helping.

Thanks all for the look and the comments. I passed them along. I guess she used to be really into photography and, due to life, had to back away for a little while. We all know how that goes when you have a passion and no time to explore it. I am helping her get back to work with the camera.

Jim Hamilton – You are right, my ugly mug doesn’t make much of a subject :) I have some old tools and items I picked up over time that I would like her to make subjects of for poster sized prints in my living room. I have cobbler tools and old handmade toolboxes, some old Stanley items, etc. I will share anything that might interest the community here :)

Have a great weekend all of you,

David

I love the first one – that’s something you should frame.
