I posted my latest furniture projects to the LJ gallery before I put them in my own website, that just shows how you guys rate, but I did get them added to my site and they have many more detailed shots of the construction.

You will find them under the heading “Current Events” in the navigation bar.

I still do remodeling and my latest remodel project is posted under the same “Current Events.” It is not always just about woodworking, but it is always about design and quality. There is some built-in action and you may find it interesting too.

I am not trying to hold out anything on LJ, I just have to manage my available time (better.)

Remember to check on “Current Events” in the navigation menu for the latest. From there you can get to each project in more detail

I need to get going, my taxes aren’t going to do themselves. Yes, I filed an extension.

Todd, I enjoyed your site, well done. and although I agree with most everything written I do disagree with the cleaning your shop daily, I have become comfortable in the chaos of my work area, the time spent searching for my tools has become a familiar routine, tripping over countless unfinished projects (unfortunately many as yet unfinished commissions) as I walk through the few open paths or the cloud of dust that billows as I sweep my bench clean prior finishing a piece….all these I would truly miss if I were to chose a different philosophy. And my relationship with my wife, our conversations so often revolve around my shop, if I were to change at this late point in my life, these all too familiar discussions would be missed I’m afraid. I can see my bench from where I am sitting here through the shelves, although I can’t make out what is on it from this distance, I do recognize a jorgensen clamp right away. We should be cognizant of the example we set Todd and I hope you’ll accept this in the spirit it is given….my wife is looking for a screwdriver so I have to cut this short, but I did enjoy your site.

Ah, the mess in the shop does, over time, take on a personality of it’s own. Becoming as an old friend in the shop.

Todd you are one very talented man. I’d appreciate your sending some of your talent to me. I would put it to good use, I promise! Seriously Todd – well done. Your web site is amazing and easy to navigate. Looking forward to more from you——but get those taxes done first. :-)

Oh crap. If Pam sees that vanity in Lucy’s bathroom I’m in a world of hurt!
You’ve done more signature work there Todd. Seriously beautiful.

This is my first computer so I bought an Apple. I do the website myself with the iWeb program. I had a steep learning curve to climb for a while there. EVERYTHING was new to me.

Ok, I no longer buy your story of not being “tech savvy”! :)

Nice job on the website. I guess you can add web designer to your list of skills!

I do not consider myself tech savvy. I often have a vision of what I want to achieve and then I have to figure out how to make it work. This has been the case for my website. I am truly learning as I go.

I have to thank the LJ community because in the past they have given me tremendous help to figure out all things technical.

Scott, it is always good to hear from you.

That bathroom looks sharp, Todd.

Giving lots of photos before, during and after a project like that is a great idea for your website, I think. It will really give your potential clients an idea of how you are capable of transforming a room.

I’m assuming those shop photos are the the updated photos after the remodel? Looks like a fun playground!

Thanks for keeping us in the loop and giving us a great window into the pro world.

-- Happy woodworking!
