My Knife Block

A couple of years ago I laminated some African Mahogany and Walnut together to make this block.

This is my first attempt at high def pix of any of my projects. I definitely need to do more to set up the shots and some are out of focus. It’s a learning curve.

Clicking on the images below will load a large hi-def image. It may take a while to load depending on your internet connection.

It usually sits on the shelf in my office.
The last pic in this series is a better quality shot of this view.

Clearly I should have thought more about staging the area reflected in the mirror. Even this late in the year the sun here is just too bright. It created a huge hot spot in the shots that I tried to compensate for in Photoshop.

Yes, there is a lot I need to learn about digital photography.

I’ll post more hi-def shots of some other/older projects as time permits.
