I agree - I tend to ramble on when I am passionate about a subject :wink: - best to let some thoughts cook a little bit - the good news is this one is taking hold and I have some really good people interested in seeing it go further... 8) I did the big orange thing earlier this week because that is ...

You are absolutely right Joe - its about the router... right now my only access to the router is through Bill or Dave, but I still have access to it. I can still offer a cabinet that is 42 1/2\" wide and 20\" tall if I darn well have to to make the customer happy and the router will cut it...

and ANOTHER thing...(sometimes I just can't shut up - it WILL be my undoing)... Rolf made the very good point that showing a room design is NOT the same as showing a CABINET box. I agree. But I just lived through this experience and lost a deal because I showed a really nice box, well made and all, ...

Good points Rolf - I'm always game for a good discussion - I suppose I could buy a CD of Kerry or Bill's designs, make some cabinets, and spend a lot of time and money creating my own mock ups of kitchens/ecenters etc. for my own idea book. For that matter, I should probably make my own doors and su...

You're good Dan, you're really really good... :) I'm thinking we could augment what you have here with some actual Kitchen shots from the design sharing library, and some of our own stuff and then we've got something. I'm not sure if the format of ordering is appropriate though. In my case, since my...

Paul, That's my plan as well. I am currently working as a system architect during the day and cabinetry and teaching cabinetry by night. I want out of the IT gig altogether and can't really do it until I have the cabinetry established with a backlog, hence my STRONG DESIRE to see this through and OV...

This is great, Dan! I was working on something similar in Photoshop for a brochure design...this is a great tool for tapping someone on the shoulder... Now, after I tap them on the shoulder, what do we show them? The larger need I think is for a catalog to display the designs that are in the design ...

to follow up what Joe said above - I DO have some pretty good computer skills (23 years in the business... :shock: ) , but not all the latest software for this stuff that Dan has - if you need any help Dan just let me know - I also am willing to help pay for the final outcome - I don't want to just ...

I hear you Joe - I intend to keep this going and get some momentum behind it - Good luck at the show - I am not attending this time but I hope that I can glean enough about what's going on from reading this and all the other forums to stay abreast of things - I just will miss the networking opportun...

I'm so glad this is finally picking up some steam. I tried to get this going when the furniture network became available but it seemed to fall on deaf ears. Bill Rutherford called Ken and via that call I was able to use some of the images from the furniture network on my web site. If you look over m...

Joe - by all means, let us walk in each other's shadow let the thunder be heard, we need to market these designs too!

I second the nod to Dan by the way...

(Joe, I grew up north of you in a little burg called Hastings...still have most of my family out there..)

Just to expand on that a little bit... As a cooperative member, its in ALL of our best interests for EACH of us to be successful at marketing our collective products. The overriding assumption here is that we are all comparatively small shops - many of us as the sole member. We are competing against...

Now we're talking, Dan... In my humble opinion, to really take advantage of this program, I would be able to download or purchase a catalog \"template\" if you will, of all the designs that are currently offered in the design store - augment that template with my own designs or samples of ...
