Blog gets a little make-over
I was getting kind of bored with the old Blog look and feel and after trying out a few theme changes in WordPress I realized that it wasn’t going to be a quick and dirty change to get what I wanted. I decided that I could attack some small changes and grow towards the look I want.
Not to be dissuaded, I opted for one or two quick changes I could make that would improve the look and feel (to me.)
The background is mahogany (which you probably already guessed, being woodworkers). BTW – I do not recommend googling ‘ebony’ images…well, unless you’re feeling lonely…nevermind.
The creepy tree roots picture is gone and I went out in the shop and grabbed a few tools and some rough cherry boards, a little decorating with plane shavings and some accent lighting and voila a new header picture. I was thinking of sepia toning the picture, but it didn’t work out as nice.
Lastly, now I show previews/teasers of posts rather than the latest blog entry.
Let me know what you think…
