Greetings to Everyone! Last week we announced a Finishing Class to be held the weekend of September 19-21. This class has almost filled, so if you were wanting a spot, please get registered asap. Also, we received several emails from woodworkers who wanted to come but that weekend isn’t available for them so we are looking at adding one more. If you want to come to a class in the Fall, and the September date does not look good for you, please check your calendar for the two weekends prior or the two weekends after these dates and see if they work for you, email me as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you if we are able to schedule a class that fits for you.
Have a great week.
Hey Guys, CameraGirl here. Charles has been filming nonstop for weeks (Sherri & I are doing are best to catch up with all of the editing & uploading!) and he’s now got the Online Finishing Class forum (for subscribers) up and has posted a question. He asked me to drop ya’ll a blog, as “no one ever responds to him when he posts” (his words), so please, go check it out, post something so he doesn’t feel like I’m the only one who ever has a question.
Those of you who have subscribed to the on line finishing class, we are beginning to get some videos up. So go check it out.
We are starting at the beginning, and are breaking it up as much as possibe , thus the short videos, we wanted to keep it topic specific, so that we have alot of smaller videos , so it can be indexed better and you can go to a specific topic without having to wade thru alot of material. Check it out and let us know what you think. There are just a few up, and these are the basic stuff, but we are getting there, and will have a ton more to go Alot of actual project finishing pieces will be filmed as well , and walked through. I am enjoying doing this, , and I hope it will help alot of folks.
Did I mention its in stereo as well
Hey Everyone, it’s Sherri here….
In setting up the new ‘Finishing Site’ I did a few style changes, just discovered that it systematically changed each and every page, removing the bars on the right with all of the links. I just happened to notice it and am in the process of changing each one back to the way it was suppose to be!
That’s where I need your help, I am not a computer geek nor do we have an IT department. I kind of learn how to do these things when required and sometimes I might mess something up in the process. If you see anything change that you don’t think was intentional, please email me at email@example.com. By the way, that’s our new general email address. We have to switch our other email accounts and so we have set up the new one to get folks used to using it.
We’ve filmed a day of the finishing videos, I think 8 or 9 in all, I will begin processing and uploading and Crystal and Charles will continue to film. If you have subscribed, you will see videos begin appearing as they are finished, just a perk for registering early.
We have extended the $10.00/month special price through May 31st if anyone missed the window last week, you can use the links in the email you received or you can subscribe from our web site. Click Here to go to the ‘Learn More-Subscribe!’ Page
It seems that there are never any comments when I hijack the blog, I understand….but if you do have anything that you would like to suggest to make the site friendlier, please feel free to comment.
Again, I learn as the need arises so you may have a great idea that may take me a little time to figure out how to make it work.
Have a blessed day!
