Default Works I am trying not to mess up

Since I cannot seem to take a picture worth a darn, I am going to try and post three of stuff I am just about done with. They are all the first of their kind for me to try and make.

The first is one of the ornaments from the last issue.

The second is a couple crosses I made for my neighbors from the last issue. Those were not as hard as they looked for me, and my neighbors think I spent months on them.

The third is a nativity scene that a buddy of mine gave me the pattern for. I have no idea where he got it.

I would say both your pictures and your work came out just fine.

I am going to make one of those crosses for my wife before Christmas.

What type of wood is that you used for the Ornament?

Great cutting. I assume the Bud Light was after you finished cutting.

You need to have a GOOD light when you are cutting so you can see... And I see you chose a bud light.

Kidding aside you have some great cuttings there....your photos are in focus ald crisp. what is it that you think is not right.. redirect your flash so it bounces instead of straight at your topic that will help with reflection but it only show in the first one and doesnot hurt the subject....

Good looking work! A Bud Light is a good reward afterward indeed. The magazine had a good article on photographing your work a year or so ago - it had some good pointers.

I don't know what wood it is. It was scrap I had lying around but it sure was hard as all get out.
