oak trestle bench

Have had a hard time posting pictures on my threads. Thought I would give it one more try. If it works this is a quarter sawn red oak bench with a scrolled trestle. Not my latest but I thought it was a little interesting. 98" long 14" wide 18" tall ...2" thick quarter sawn red oak. Family has six children and expecting another and wanted a large dining room bench with an aged look.
( if the pictures did'nt post I guess I'm just wasting space and making myself look stupit ...again)

If you click on the photo spots they show up. Table looks nice.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Your pictures are 97 KB, BMP but they measure 210 px x 158 px.
Question what do you have your camera set to in mega pix and is it adjustable?
I find that my 10 mp camera pictures must be "resized" to be accepted here...too many pixels! they are way more than 97 KB, the maximum allowed.
So I use my 4.2 MP camera with no resizing. Somewhere along the line you have resized them too small....kinda hard to see very well.
I'm a no expert on this subject, but by trial and error figured this out.
If you "Right Click" on the photos and look down for "image information" , you will see those specs.
Maybe someone can explain it better? bill

Right Click on this photo to see what I mean. This is a jpeg image.
The size is 640 px x 480 px, much larger.


The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

To the guys who could see the pictures thanks for the kind words. To those who could'nt see them I'm sorry (I can't see them either). I think woodnthings is probably right about my camera not being compatable with the forum, I'll look into that further. In answer to the questions about construction, the biggest challenge was the scrolled stretcher. I designed and cut a template for one side and flipped it to keep both ends of the stretcher identical and formed a dovetail wedge in the center. The ends were wedged through tenons. Could'nt find any 8/4 QS red oak locally so I had to do a lot of glue-ups for width and thickness. After roughing the edges with a sander, I colored it with AGED OAK gell stain. Had to do a lot of rubbing out and restaining to get the blend of lite and dark I was looking for. Finished with multiple coats of semi gloss and then satin oil poly. Table saw, band saw, router(one destoryed $50.00 pattern bit), chisel and sandpaper. Again , Thanks
