  • Designs for a Co-Worker

    Hi Everyone, here are a couple of special orders that were requested by a coworker. She was looking through some home interior books and asked if I could make her a couple of things out of wood instead of molded resin or plastic. She wanted them almost black but wanted the wood grain to show. She found a photo of a Corinthian Medallion that she wanted to see how close I could get at reproducing in out of wood and then she wanted me to design a three piece Wall Grille appoximatly 12" by 30" each piece with the center piece having a small shelf for the end wall of a hallway. Here is what I came up with and she was delighted. I used a Cabot ebony stain on red oak with a light laquer finish. The first photo is of the one in the book. The one that I made is 27" in diameter. Steve

    looks fantastic steve, although it would show better without the blue patterned background, and the grille is brilliant. Try using more natural light when photographing your items.

      Hi Steve, thanks for the comments. These pictures were taken with an older polaroid instant camera before I got my new digital. I had to scan them in and try to edit them so they were even viewable. But I have learned that the natural light gives better photos. Thanks, Steve

          They're very elegant, Steve. Timeless.

            Hi Mike, I do a fair amount of selling mostly around christmas but not enough to go full time. (darn it ) The red oak is solid wood 5/8" thick. Steve

                Worth a try, but very rarely works. During the install in windows, the software registers links (for want of a better word) which are required for it to operate. install is what is needed...

                I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as itโ€™s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

                Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!
