    Latest Cutting,
    Many thanks to Randy for making the wonderful pattern for me.
    Took this one to the Markets on Sunday and sold it. Have two more, I'm just in the process of finishing frames for.
    Don't know why the pic has a "Blue" cast

      First--great cutting and love the framing.

      Second, for the camera part, take a photo outside in normal daylight. If it is very blue, check the settings in your camera. Mine got set to indoor lighting (tungsten) at a wedding and when I went to shoot some scenery, it looked like blue ink was washed across the image.
      When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
      Too early to leave, too late to call in.

            Beautiful work as always! As for the blue cast to the photos, Jim McD is right. It has to do with the color temperature of the light conditions. Your digital camera has a setting for white balance that will correct that problem for you. Just as a reference, tungsten light is very yellow. If the camera corrects for that, then the bright sunlight or fluorescent lighting will appear very blue when photographed. There is an automatic setting for white balance on most digital cameras but that is iffy at best. Just get into the menu on your camera, hunt up white balance. It's easy to set for the lighting conditions where you are.

                    G'day all,
                    Thanks very much for the kind words.
                    Thanks to Jim and Jan for info on the white balance with the camera. The wall behind he picture is beige so you can see the colour is not true. The frame colour is pretty accurate.

                      Nice work John. I didn't know who Slim Dusty was either but googled him and listened to a few of his songs. I can understand why he his so popular down under. Again good work.

                          Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                          That is...

                          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.
