I thought I would give everyone a quick update about what has been going on with MapleGroveWoodworks.com. As you can see, I have been making some “look and feel” changes to the website over the last few days. I am not done yet, but it is coming around. Even after I finish my “to do” list, I am sure I will always be tweaking it in some way. I am just that way when it comes to websites, I guess.
Besides all of the visual changes, you’ll notice an open space in the upper right hand corner of the home page labeled “Featured Video”. I am planning on some videos soon for the site and the most recent will be featured in this location. Some of the videos will be “how to” woodworking videos filmed in the shop, and others will be design oriented. The design videos will be Computer Aided Design (CAD) oriented, and will hopefully be helpful to some people.
Another noticeable difference is that the blog has been taken off of the home page. Don’t worry, it’s still here. It now has its own page on the site and can be accessed through the menu at the top of the page. I wanted the site to be “more” than a blog, although I am still contemplating what the “more” will really be. I just thought that it made sense, at this point, to move it off of the home page to make room for the “more”.
Feel free to look around at what I have so far. I am always open to constructive comments if you have ideas about how something could be improved.
