Being electronically challenged amongst several other short comings I am trying to figure out how I can if at all separate my various projects.
The reason I ask is for those of you who have been following my blog “This Old Crack house” you’re aware that I am at the major rehab and remodeling stage with this part of the story.
I have had requests and several questions about various parts of this process.
I find often a picture is worth a thousand words when trying to demonstrate or show a part of a project.
There are several smaller wood working projects in addition to the major remodeling part of this house. For Example; I had to recreate and hand build all the old woodwork in the main floor of the house. This was no small task. The old wood work had been taken down and ended up in the garage for two years.
A large portion of it wasn’t salvageable. Thus the reason I had to build my own to match what I could salvage.
There are many other examples of this such as replacing the windows with my own hand made stained glass windows, several build ins, new doors, and other wood working projects that added to the project over all.
There are six levels to this house. In two levels I hand build over 100 pieces of both Mission and Arts and Crafts and other related styles. Several of these projects are already on display on my project page.
Every level of this house has a different style or period of furniture. Although mission/ arts and crafts is my personal favorite I have designed, built and furnished the other 4 levels of this house with various styles and types of different furniture such as these, for example.
There may not be any interest in seeing all of the other furniture that I build for this house. The reason I am asking if its possible to separate the pictures and various styles is to fold.
One, It would allow me to separate the various floors of the house and what style and furniture I build for each floor for the blog “This Old Crack House”. This helps to make sense of the project and the story that accompany s the furniture.
Two, I am contacted fairly often regarding various pieces of furniture that I have built. Both with questions of how to build something or how I built the project. Often I am asked where did I find the plan. I am often asked if I would give them my source or permission to use my plans. The shear number of projects I have posted some times makes it cumbersome and hard to find out the exact piece they are referring to. I have to manually go through the pictures to find the answer to there questions. I am happy to do this but time is a factor for me and it takes longer to get the answer.
I am the first to admit I didn’t do a good job of using tags.
Shame on me, now I understand the value of them.
I often get messages that say “Dusty I don’t have time to read your blog or reply to your posting but from time to time I see a project posted that I am interested in or would like to ask you a question about”. Also it seems the quality of pictures I post directly on the project page are so much better than the ones I have to use ImageShack to upload and host these pictures.
Should I just drop this idea of posting the various other projects and furniture?
