Default Thanks Andy Deane, one down....

Here is a completed gift for one of my neices. whew..... 3 crosses, 1 jewlery box, 2 chainsaws, and 1 thermometer to go.... All thankfully in polyuerethane phase...

I will definitely be building a photo box after the Christmas rush. Either I get a flash with a glare or it's too dark to register.

Thanks Andy, for a great pattern.

Brian

G'day Bian,
Talk about management by crisis

That's a very nice cutting.

I'm currently making a box (Trinket) for my wife. Doubt if she'll get for Xmas, perhaps a couple of days late.
I all ready have prezzies for her, but she loved the one I made Mum so much, that I decided to put another idea into practice.

Very nice job there. I'm sure they will be loved for a very long time.

A quick suggestion for you photos with the flash glare. I read something a while back that suggested taking pictures of your framed pieces without the glass in. I do this now and it works pretty good. I still get a bit of a bright spot on it depending on the type of finish I use and the angle I take it at, but it is significantly less. A light box will definitely make a big difference though and I'm still considering making one myself.

One other thing to try for the hot spot glare and that is to place one or two layers of a white handkerchief over the flash to dim the light a bit. The flash output is for six to ten feet of distance and most project pics are closer than that.
