Would Like To See Your Work

I saw a interresting thread lately about "what type of work do you do?" and found it to be very interesting and with many of us responding to our jobs and background! One of the things I enjoy about this forum is being in contact with other woodworkers, both those who do it for a living and those who do it just for fun. For most of us this is a great way to learn! I've clicked on a lot of the member's links and have seen some great pictures of their work but I was also surprised to find that many members with quite a large number of posts had no albums or pictures of their projects. I know everyone would most likely enjoy seeing what others build as much as I would enjoy it. Please share some of your photo's...

Who Dat...Every step of any project should be considered your masterpiece if you want the finished product to reflect the quality of your work. Have a nice day, unless you have other plans! "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."

Your post prompted me to check my profile, and sure enough....guilty as charged. I only had one project listed....for some reason I thought I had several posted. Thanks to your reminder, I've added a couple more, and will likely add more.

One of the modern day tricks that continues to elude me is figuring out how to post pictures. It is not easy being a Neanderthal in this age. I must make a real effort and apply myself to this task. If I ever master it you will likely be sorry you made your request.

That is some very nice work! I's sure you are very proud of it and thanks for allowing myself and others to view it...

Gerry,
I am 61, a neandrethal in the computer age, and just recently learned (well I hope I learned, anyhoo) how to post pictures to this forum. In fact, since my wife and I got a digital camera last year it became possible. My first 3 or 4 ( or maybe 5 or 6) attempts at posting digital photos didn't work and I am still struggling each time I try it.

I get tired of resizing and editing them so they fit in the gallery. I put an example of the little boxes I make to pay for this hobby in mine.

I agree with the enjoyment of looking at others photos of their work. I have a few albums, but I really need to add some more recent ones. Hopefully soon.

Thanks for the reminder. I have to update my album by first taking more pics. I lost all of my old pics in Hurricane Katrina 3 years ago.

Another Katrina victim? I lost 40+ years of collecting tools and a house full of wood projects I built during Katrina. I was only able to save a solid teak dresser I built in 1975 and a cypress headboard I built about 10 years ago. Luckily these wooods are pretty much impervious to sitting under water for 3 weeks. If there was anything good that came out of Katrina for me it was moving to a much larger piece of property in Prairieville and being able to build the workshop I never had room for in New Orleans. Besides, before Katrina I was completely out of spece in our house to put anything else I would build. Now I get to built enough to fill 2 houses and a great new shop to do it in. Strange who stuff works out.

I am on several forums, and I got tired of posting up galleries here, there and everywhere, so I put up my own user web page...

I guess it only goes to prove I am more of a computer geek that enjoys woodworking than a woodworker that happens to make a living with computers..

http://home.earthlink.net/~dbhost

Just like my woodworking, and workshop, the website is always a work in progress and never quite finished...

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See http://wildersport-outdoors.blogspot.com

Sorry to hear about your losses in Katrina. The older I get the more I realize that all things serve a purpose. The problem is that we don't know it at the time.
I was living on my boat in Slidell, La, also had a mini-storage unit in Slidell, my shop and most tools were in Gulfport, Ms. and another mini-storage in Biloxi. I was wiped out straight across the board.
I now own and live on a much bigger boat with a much smaller shop which is due to grow soon. For me, I guess I can say it all worked out for the best.....maybe. LOL

One thing I learned long ago is that you can find either good or bad in every thing that happens in life. I have always chose to find the good in everything and it makes life much better.
