Practical Tips for Making and Marketing Your Woodwork

Customer's Photo Gallery

Steve Bundred - Wednesday, October 21, 2009

I've just completed scanning and uploading over 160 photos of intarsia projects made by my customers. The photos have been sent to me over the last few years and it's about time they saw the light of day.

Most of them are of Fantastic Woodworking projects but I've also included a Customer's Original Designs Gallery. This gallery will give you an idea what other woodworkers out there are getting up to. Some of the designs are fabulous. Some only so-so. But all are interesting.

I've also included a gallery of my Experimental Intarsia Projects. Some are quite good and I should probably get around to sorting out a decent pattern for them. Some of them are very ordinary and should be left out of the back of the shed. At least the termites could enjoy recycling them.

What is obvious from the galleries is that the majority of woodworkers don't know how to take a decent photo of their work. It isn't very difficult when you know how. A cheap digital camera on a cheap tripod with some cheap lights and a home made mini studio. Which, by the way, is very cheap and easy to set up. You won't believe what a difference this makes. An article on how I do it coming up very soon. And did I mention how cheap and easy it is? I think I may have.
