I have just retired from teaching Science for 35 years. I use to have a small part-time craft business. That was 25 years ago and between my daughter's activities and my work, I have done very little woodworking. Now that I have sometime on my hands I am interested in getting back into making different items (my sister and my wife have already given me a very large list of things they "needs".) Boy am I rusty and I'm going to need a lot of advise to get going again, so if I put out a question that seems very simiple, please bare-with-me. I started with some real simple projects - a tie or scarf rack and a note-paper roller. I am going to try to start making different kinds of boxes - tea box, junk boxes, etc. to get use to putting together joints. Well all for now and thanks in advance for any help you can give me. Bob

I’m not sure , but maybe you should try reducu=ing your image to 100×100 megapixels. See if that’ll do it.
