Walnut and maple. Shows off the joints. Very simple hinge. Hinges can be addicting. So many styles and methods of construction.

Nice looking box… uh, I think. :)
Try standing back a bit, then just crop the picture on your computer. I think you’ll find that will work better than standing too close.

rance: thanks for the tip. I stood back and took some more pics. Then I went out and found me a nine year old to explain “crop”. He said it was an eye-dee-ten-tee problem on the computer. You know, I D 1 0 T on my computer. ME?

LOL. That’s funny. If you use Windows, Open the Paint program to resize, crop, and manipulate your pics. Don’t make it too small though or you’ll have the same problem. I look forward to the new pics.

OMG First it was “crop” now it’s “paint”. STOP!! My brain pan can’t handle the input. lol! I want to make sawdust not make my computer smoke or my brain.

Simple and clean is always a good idea.

I’ve got a Canon Powershot Sx100 IS camera that’s a few years old with 10X optical zoom and 8 megapixel. It does just about everything a camera can do, except get really really close. I can only get within about 1 ft. The zoom feature is pretty good and it even records video for about 10 minutes with my 2GB sandisk. I’ve been published and get a lot of compliments from folks about photos I’ve taken. I’ve finally started using the owner’s manual and manual features to know what it will do. I had a lot of camera features I wasn’t using instead I was using photoshop editor. I could have taken the picture the way I wanted it in the first place. Battery Life using the top Lithium by Everready is the best.
The upgade model after mine Canon Sx120 IS for $200 is a lot of camera. The “Auto” feature is really good. It’s rated very high 5 out of 5 in several reviews and 4.5 in the critics page, but they never give 100%
If I were to get a new camera right now I’d get the Canon SX130IS it’s a 12optical Zoom and 12.1 megapixel. The Macro feature lets you get within a 1/2”, a better wide angle and 20% better zoom, and w/ more megapixel that means photoeditor has more to work with. Enjoy.
