    I need photos for my web site - Please?

    In case you haven't noticed;
    I am not in the handle material business for the big bucks. All of you keep me busy enough so I can do this full time. I make enough to live modestly and be able to afford to buy more wood.
    Where I get the most enjoyment is from getting to see what people do with the wood they get from me. Not just the professionals either. I see some surprisingly good work and unique designs from the hobbyists and first timers as well.
    In a nut shell, I like looking at the pictures.

    So..... I wanted to ask a favor from all of you.
    Would you be willing to provide photos?
    What I am looking for are photos of knives made using Burl Source wood as the handle material. Sayas or sheaths too.
    I will be using the photos in a gallery I will be building on my web site.
    I will be rebuilding a new site that is separate from the web store. It will take a while but I will try to do a good job on it.

    I think the gallery can accomplish several things.
    Allow knife makers and owners to show off their knives.
    Provide enjoyment to people who like to see the photos.
    Enable other knife makers to get an idea how different woods will look when used on a knife as handle material.

    If you have photos or are willing to take photos;
    Please send them via email to itsaburl@live.com. Please include the knife maker's name so I can give them credit with the photo.

    Please make a post here letting me know if you will be sending photos to me by email.
    This way the other guys won't think they are the only ones.
    Please don't post the photos here, but send them by email so I can size them and whatever else I need to do to include them in the gallery.

    Thank You in advance for your help.

    I will have something for you as soon as the shellack sealer coat cures a bit and I can polish it out!

    I'm more than happy to send some pics but where do I start? Seriously I can't even think about going through them all.
