I’ve been getting a bunch of nice images for the JPEG Wars that will be held as an extra, free event at Woodworking in America 2011.
This piece is by James Raines. He built this bookcase cabinet with highly figured walnut and curly maple. The sides, back and doors are all book matched fielded raised panels in mortise and tenon frames. Great work, James.
In case you didn’t know, James is now entered into a prize drawing just for submitting his images. He will also qualify for a really expensive hand tool if our as yet un-named guest judge picks his work as the best of the wars. Good luck, James, and for everybody else, keep the images coming in.
Which gets me wondering… what do you think about making a gallery of current work a regular part of the web page? Would you be interested in submitting JPEGs of your work to have other viewers comment or not? Or maybe a gallery of images where you could critique works in progress? I’m open to all suggestions and look forward to your comments.
Also, keep in mind that the early bird discount for WIA 2011 is August 14th, saving you $40.
