During the shut in, I decided to make some toothpick holders. One is for me and the other two will be given away. Each one is slightly different. I was trying different techniques and profiles. My wife liked the shortest one, we kept it. It is the one with toothpicks in it. Sorry for the sideway pictures. I rotated before dropping and dragging, but they are still sideways.

Nice job Frank . Regarding pics, I never take them in portrait mode, or they turn sideways

I rotated and dropped once but it didn't do any good to my pictures either. It just hurt my knees.

Thanks for the kind comments. The toothpicks come from Cracker Barrel. I always have a toothpick in my mouth and carry extras in my pocket.

Now on to next project, putting a new caster set on my Jet 14” Bandsaw. Got tired of the original locking casters not locking. Also hope the new ones make the saw more stable.

Stick,

Your pictures sure look better rotated. Before posting I opened each picture and rotated. When I dropped and dragged them, they rotated 180 degrees. Next time I will try paint shop and rotate and crop and save as you suggested. One other question. Is it possible to edit or delete picture before pressing “post quick reply”? I have looked but could not find solution. Thank for your help. I hate doing something wrong!

Frank Those are great. Something I'd like to turn when and if I ever get back to my shop.

Niiiice, what wood did you use? Unfortunately, crafting is not that popular anymore, I used to do this together with my father. I started learning from doing toothpicks and matches. We had so many of them that my mom was giving them to our neighbors, lol. In the beginning, they were so bad that my father hurt his gum and developed an infection and had to visit a dentist ( General and Cosmetic Dentistry In Thousand Oaks, CA - Lombard Dental Studio ). After that incident, all I crafted was matches. Later I started making with him doors and windows. Working with wood is one of the most considerable talents one can have.

Since this nifty string has come back from the dead, I'd like to suggest that anyone who wants to post pictures download Irfanview.

Irfanview is free picture editing software, freeware that will also run video (although it won't edit video. Not nearly as versatile as commercial software, but performs basic editing, color correction, flipping, numerous filters including sharpening. Solves the rotation problem nicely I almost always wind up using its cropping capability on phone pictures. You can also downsize the jpg, png and several other formats with one click. I've been using it for more than a decade. FYI
