Hi everyone..after years..I mean YEARS!! of people asking me why I didn’t have a website..I finally had one made..At first..I attempted to do it myself, but a good friend stepped in and offered to help me get it up and running..I have to admit he did a really really good job.. so..if anyone is interested in seeing it.. here she is..

www.racfurniture.com

I will be blogging my adventures in furniture making there as I go.. I’m still learning the ropes but hopefully I’ll get it all down quick..

also..if anyone else needs a good web designer..let me know..I can’t recommend Sal enough..

Randall,
Great looking website, professional, clean and attractive. The homepage invites you in and showing a picture of yourself makes it more personal so people can see you for you and that you are not some factory furniture builder but instead a sincere craftsman!

I just designed and loaded my website 2 weeks ago, still trying to fix a few bugs. Would love some feedback if you had the time. www.woodsimplymade.com

Thanks,
Mike

Thanks guys..

Mike..I had some good help from Sal Morino.. you can find him at monsterwoodshop.com drop him a note..he’s always ready to help..I started to do my site and sought his advise..he not only came thru, but talked me into joining a completely different website software that had more for what I wanted to do.

Scott.. Sam was my friend and mentor too..I knew him well..sure do miss him..

Really nice website Randall, flows very nice and easy to navigate. What website software is it that you used / signed up with? This is something that I need to look into…...

Randall, it’s a very nice site and you make some wonderful pieces of furniture. I hope the site really works out well for you.

That’s a lovely website, and wonderful products. I like the homepage photo of you enjoying your chair! Many sites have no photos of the artisan, and I think that is mistake. Yours is more personal, and the text sounds friendly and inviting without being mushy. Nice job!

Thanks BarbS..I wanted a more personal site and not a monotonous one..I’m always looking for ways to tweak it to make it better..
