If anybody has crappy pics of their projects  that "didn't make the cut"  feel free to share them.
I'm sure you all have pics of things that aren't good enough to post as projects,
Feel free to post them here without giving a whole story, or just give a line or two.

Here is a crappy slideshow of some projects I did that I never got descent pictures of or don't have enough to post as projects.
WARNING:  May need to turn down volume.  I don't know what I'm doing.....

All look pretty amazing to me.  Given your work, I assume your business comes by referrals and word of mouth?  All look to be in very high end homes/businesses (i.e., I couldn't afford it!!!).

Bently,
Wow!  There is a lot of nice woodworking there, however . . . it goes way too fast for old folks like us.  Can you slow it down a little?  How can we nitpick to find a tiny flaw when we can't even keep up with them?  Actually we'd like to admire them a little more without having to keep stopping the video.

I slowed the video down,  I didn't think anyone would want to spend that much time looking.
(Not sure I want anybody spending that much time looking.  lol )
Should also be able to set your settings on your player to play at like 25% speed? (Check settings when the player opens)

Thanks, Bently.  We really appreciate your catering to us old folks!  What kind of wood is that in the huge, gorgeous office at the 1:20 mark?  Did you install that in a home or office?

You're welcome Lefty,
It's Cherry wood in a home office.  It looked much better in person.  
It's a shame I never learned to take quality pictures.  ☹️

You're too hard on yourself, Bently.  Your pictures are certainly well above average.  Taking photos on an install with limited area from which to shoot is much more difficult than setting up a photo of something you can move around, like furniture or boxes.

Blame it on the camera.  Perhaps you just need a different camera that has bellows that you can adjust to use a wide-angle lens but not end up with major distortion, like photographers use for architectural shoots.

Thanks Lefty,  You're too kind.  I'm just embarrassed that those are as good as I got.  

For a while I was trying to use a (very nice) Pentax Camera, with real film.  
After I got the pictures developed I couldn't figure which settings I used for the good ones or the bad ones.
I never did figure it out.
And then after waiting so long to get the film back, it would be too late to go back and re-take them.  

Long story short,  I don't think it would matter what camera I use,  it's not the camera.  lol
I needed to know Moke......

Thanks Pottz,  I have always tried to do my best.  
If I saw something,  I couldn't just let it go. I always lived by the rule that if I see it they will sooner or later.
Would never want anyone to think I was trying to get away with something.  Guilty conscious I guess.
