10 Years Today

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

Ten years ago today (January 24, 2006), GarageWoodworks.com was born.  The website has gone through a lot of changes over the years as I continued to try new things and learn HTML and PHP in the process.  I write the code for and maintain my own website which I feel gives me a lot of freedom and control to do what I want and when I want.

A few years after the website started I began publishing videos (videos started in 2009) which have taken on a life of their own!

The only support that I’ve received over the 10 years has been from woodworkers like you and a few sponsors. Garage Woodworks has always been Google Ad free.

Thank you for your continued support!

(I still have 10-year anniversary T-shirts for sale if you’d like to show your support)

January Makes Ten

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

This January, my website GarageWoodworks.com turns TEN years old (January 24, 2015 to be exact)!  If you’d like to see what my website looked like then, you can via TheWebArchive which started taking snapshots in May 2006.  Although I didn’t start producing woodworking videos until November 2009, the website served as a place to post my projects and offer woodworking tips and advice to other hobbyists.  Looking back at how my website used to look, I think it has improved considerably 😉

I think I am going to do something special in January to commemorate the event, but I am not sure exactly what.  I also plan on releasing a special 10-year anniversary T-shirt; if you have any design ideas for the shirt please let me know in the comments.

Bring it Back

Friday, March 6th, 2015

I am contemplating bringing back the viewer/reader project upload section to my website. Some might remember that I had this as a feature on my website a few years ago when I had the Forum portion. The new project upload section will be different in that it will not require a login. Anyone can freely upload and anyone can comment. No registration required. Kind of like what I have now for the new Sketchup upload feature.

Your thoughts?

More to follow.
