Here's a tip from Volume 5 - Issue #1 issue of RodMaker magazine:
You should take good quality photos of each rod you complete. This allows
you to build a portfolio to show other potential customers. Take shots
of the entire rod as well as close-ups of any intricate or decorative
work. Antonio Davis
If you have any tips or techniques, send them
along! Help out your fellow rodmakers!
