I am officially set up now on my new website platform. There are new features and better functionality that I can see will help me to connect with the woodworkers to better share my experience and knowledge.
THE BAD NEWS IS…
Sadly, my workshop gallery is down for the moment. The new template was incompatible with previous gallery, so I will have to completely repost the shop tour. I know by the website stats, the workshop tour is the most popular feature and the pictures are downloaded constantly. And that is OK, that is exactly what it is intended for, to share and inspire, that is what the ACW philosophy of “Share the Love-Share the Knowledge” is all about.
Due to the time consuming work of loading galleries, I will hold off until I determine which template I am going to settle on. Some features are specific to templates and that mostly applies to the way galleries are laid out and function. So I will need to make my final decision between the last 2 template finalists.
NOW – STREAMING LIVE VIDEO!
One new page I have set up is the Streaming Live page. I have embedded my Ustream video and if I am working in the shop and streaming, you can stop by and see what is happening.
If you stop by, you might catch me sharing directly with the viewers to give some tips and techniques as I work on a live project. And sometimes I am just jammin’ to the shop stereo and knockin’ the project out. Either way, you are sure to glean some information as I share or you just watch the action.
Stay tuned as you will see the changes taking place and more content being added. And be sure to stop by, test drive the site and let me know if there are any issues.
I will continue tweaking the site, add the ACW Shop Tour back in, and get my portfolio gallery set up. I did not add my portfolio on the last site, but I will on this one. (It is partly due to just being plain time consuming and it is one area that I actually slacked on.)
Well, I better get back out to the shop. So be sure to stop by the Streaming Live page and see what I have going in my small pro shop.
Your friend in the shop,
