Ditching the Numbers

Hi Folks, I just wanted to post a quick update that I am dropping the numbering from video posts. I’ve removed the numbering from this site and Youtube, but you will see them within the videos themselves to date, but not going forward. It seems a little antiquated to me at this point for video content that doesn’t have a large back catalog.

I hope to focus on more video content in the future and I wouldn’t want to “label” videos by how old or new they are, but rather they stand on what content they present on their own. More to come! Until then…

Keep experimenting in your shop!

A Couple Of Quick Updates

Hi folks. I just wanted to update everyone on a couple of changes here at The Wood Lab.

First, I finally got around to mapping the domain name I bought a while back to this blog. So less typing! You can reach this blog now at thewoodlab.net! Old bookmarks and links will still work; anything going to thewoodlab.wordpress.com will point to the new URL.

The second item has to do with videos that I do for the blog. A while back I changed all the embeded videos to the YouTube version, as I found it played nicer across a more varied set of phones and tablets. I had also been using Blip.tv to host the videos, but they have decided to axe many folks’ accounts, including mine, so that they only focus on regularly produced, higher production quality content. I wasn’t thrilled about it, but I also don’t think it’s a huge deal. I never really advertised that I had the videos available via Blip in the iTunes directory. My gut feel is that most folks visiting my site view the videos here, and not subscribe to them in iTunes or some other podcatcher. Hopefully that’s the case anyway, since the handful of videos I have are now just on YouTube. (If you did subscribe using iTunes or a podcatcher, let me know in the comments. I’m curious.)

Video Introduction & Shop Tour

After doing a couple of “alpha” test videos with the Narex chisel videos I did, I thought it would be cool to start adding video content more consistently to The Wood Lab blog. Here is the introduction to this video series, and then cap it off with a tour of my shop! Let me know what you think!
