A Big Thanks
Yesterday, as I was learning to post photos on my new site, I got an email telling me that the image files were too big and it was leading to slow load times. I needed to optimize the photos for the internet.
A few emails led to a phone call from fellow woodworker Troy Bouffard of Fairbanks, AK. He took the time to walked me through PhotoShop for resizing photos. Thanks to Troy, the viewing experience will be better with faster loading images.
Who Is This Guy?
You might want to keep an eye on him as he is getting shop set up to go pro. His site is currently under construction but you can find it here: www.birchhillwoodcrafts.com
Watch for the launch date of Troy’s new site and be sure to give him feedback on any issues with appearance or function.
Update: The American Craftsman Workshop
Also be sure to let me know of any issues that you may find at my new site, The American Craftsman Workshop.
I will be constantly adding new content and you will see the major amount of work occur over the next couple of months.
I am going to reintroduce my projects with all the information that a woodworker is interested in. My current site is static and simply an online portfolio for potential clients. My new site is going to be directed to the woodworkers.
Clients are interested in some overview of construction process, but too much will turn them off. The new site will be able to cater to all the details that the aspiring woodworker wants to know.
My goal is to share in a way that will motivate, educate, and inspire other woodworkers. That has always been my goal no matter where I share.
Back to the shop!
Peace, Love, & Woodworking
