Hi

I would suggest going to the DMOU http://www.designermakers.org.uk/MemberProfiles.html . This is a site run by makers, to get on the list the work of a maker has to be accepted by the other makers, so the standard of work is high. Possibly a long list like this is not as useful as specific recommendation, but it may help to find a maker you have heard of.

The NCFM http://www.northernfurniture.org.uk/ is a similar site but limited to the north of England.

Chris

Hi Tom

It should be ready in a few weeks, I'll let you know when it's up and running.

Some interesting sites and some of the work looks familiar :D

I really like this site http://www.nest-design.com/ check out Miss Calvel, she's a mighty fine table along with the rest of their work! Very cleaver..

Oh dear, I rather hate it!! I found it so frustrating, I didn't get to see your work.

Apart from the fact it doesn't draw properly (on my Mac at least) it take a bit of figuring out how to navigate it. I am with those who think that a site should be completely transparent in how it operates. Clear navigation being the number one priority.

Any devices that get in the way of that just annoy me so much that I leave the site as quickly as I found it. My site was designed and originally run by a professional but I copied all the layouts when I took it over. Even that annoys me sometimes by the way it loads - but that's the price I pay for doing it with a simple to use program for dummies.

The site doesn't scale very well does it?

Nothing wrong with iWeb I use it for my photo section. The rest of my site at home was made with other SW but for publishing pictures iWeb gets it done fast. At the moment I have 6.5 GB of pics and rising
The wood stuff is at My home site and uses the same colour scheme as yours

Was really enjoying having a look at the suggested web sites and thought it could prove very useful as a "reference tool".
In the posts there was mention of a google sites spreadsheet containing links to all these makers/ designers web sites but I do not seem to be able to access it - I get a message that the document no longer exists. Am I doing something wrong or is this spreadsheet somewhere else?

Thanks.

I like a lot of these sites but it's like Matt says, there are specific clienteles you have to take on board. The furniture I create are specifically for Parish councils and Church yards etc and so clear traditional is what works for me.

Mind you I really like some of these modern ones, maybe I'll have to look into something new!

Would it be rather rude of me to insert my own website for your perusal?

It's new and been a labour of love

http://www.customfurnitureandwoodwork.ie

If anything's not right, please say so so I can fix it.

Onto other makers, I nearly wept the first time I saw http://www.Johnleefurniture.com

I nearly wept because I know I will never have the kind of clients who buy this stuff

or this

http://www.josephwalshstudio.com

He made the Royal Bed for Kate and Wills don'tcha know

Wonder if those guys ever get phone calls from some batty old dear about gluing a leg back on a chair...

i am not allowed to post links as I am a new member, but I looked over some of your suggestions and I like cimitree for its simplicity.
Also, for designs, pictures and inspiration in almost any area from interior design, houzz - I find to be great.
We have a new website also called: georgequinn and we are really happy with how it looks like. We would love some feedback though. We noticed that there are some particular places where people don't click on. :? Any advice/feedback would be greatly appreciated.
