For starters I am in Iraq and have a little time on my hands from time to time. I have windows 7 on my laptop and like the features of how to customize it. BLUF I am making a custom theme that is “Woodworking” inspired. Windows 7 has some cool features with themes, like scrolling backgrounds and so forth. Basically I am looking for up-close shots of hand-tools, workbenches, and old school woodworking stuff like old Stanley ad’s.
Here is kinda what I’m thinking about, the last pic of my Stanley’s and a pic of the bench.

!Click for details!

If you have pictures you want to share that do not have a copy right I will give this to whoever wants it when I am done. So send me some pictures of workbenches, tools, old ad’s, toolboxes, so on and so forth. Thanks and be blessed my friends.

Sorry about my ignorance, but do you have an email address you want them sent to, and what are you looking at in the terms of file size?

I haven’t tried this but can you copy pics directly from LJ project pages. If so you are welcome to use any of mine. If not I’d be happy to e-mail photos. If there are specific things of interest to you, such as my antique tool collection, I’d be happy to take some pics and e-mail them.

Barryvabeach- Sorry I didn’t add my email. Here it is, michael.garner@iraq.centcom.mil Also any size of pic will do.

Bigike- Sorry friend no bench will be given away. I am looking for pictures of woodworking tools, benches, and tool chest to make a custom theme for Windows 7

Glen- Yes you can copy pictures off of LJ. I don’t do it without permission so that there are no rules broken. Thank you for letting me use yours. I will post the Theme for anyone to download once it is done.

Big Ike, I think what the OP meant was that he will give a copy of the Win 7 theme to anyone who helps out and wants it—not the actual workbench. Cheers.
