« Part 2: blog roll Part 3 of ~ the love of wood ~ series Part 4: Blog's I Follow »

I purchase most of my nicer timber in rough slab form from Mal Ward from Boutique Timbers. They’ve recently asked me to help them set up a website for their business. They didn’t want much, just an online business card with contact details. Recently, I’ve grown to like blogger and thought I could use it to meet their needs.

Any feed back on site design, navigation, layout, information, etc I’d be more than happy to receive an email.

If you’re going to use it as just a website builder rather than an actual blog, I’d go into your template and turn of the entry date.

Nice site Dan; I didn’t realise that you could use a blog site like that – I thought all of the content had to be in posts.

My only suggestion would be to make the text a bit bigger in the main body. It’s fine in the side menus, but I found it a bit hard to read.

Off topic, but how’s that Roubo coming along, we haven’t heard much lately?

Hey Johnny,

Thanks for the q about the roubo. Got side tracked with a small kitchen bench top last week. Was just out in the shed oilling the sliding leg vice. It’s getting there… slow and steady… will aim to post something soon.

That’s a very nice site. It’s pretty cheap & easy to get a domain and insert similar HTML to what blogspot is generating (View Source-Select All-Copy-Paste). This allows you to have e-mail addresses like I think these little touches add a lot of professionalism to a small business. Feel free to PM me, my girlfriend is a very successful at programming/web hosting.
