Just noticed the change in the ‘Shops’ tab … IMHO, it is a real improvement.

Now, when I go to ‘Shops’, I can see which ones have photos and which ones don’t.

FWIW, I have never been interested in reading about somebody’s shop without pictures.

Agreed! I love looking at the shop photos. A description just isn’t the same.

Absolutely!

IMO, that alone helps me tell the talking heads from “real” woodworkers.
But then again, that is just me… ;-)

MsDebbie,
Any chance of adding a couple of “search” tabs, for such things as what “State” or “Country” and then maybe a tab for shop size (<500sqft, less than 1000sqft, over 1000sqft)?

This might help folks see what others have done with their shops of similar size and draw ideas from those similar shops.

THANKS MARTIN! +100

thanks re: feedback.

re: locations, I’m assuming the goal is to find woodworkers who are in your area. “Groups” is on the long-term goal list.

Thanks for the heads up. I stopped using that tab because it was a pain looking for the ones with pix.

I agree with the suggestions for searching, but I do like the new Most Discussed/Favorited feature that is currently there.
