The site is exceptional. Thanks to all who worked so hard on it.
I have been going over the testing pages and see the addition of some MS test knives shown in their group shots. This is a nice feature for those who want to see what choices that previous makers made as their test knives. As far as I know, this is the only place, even on the internet, that you can find this. IMO, this should be built upon as the years go by. Click on the link and scroll all the way down. After reading, of course. Lin

Fantastic...the site looks great Dan! What program did you use to make the site and the graphics?

Thank you. The new website for the American Bladesmith Society is really a suite of applications and consists of the traditional informational Website, Membership Application, ABS Store, Google Apps Educational Edition, YouTube, Constant Contact Email Newsletters, Forum, and Gallery.
Sally and I worked on this project full time for more than 18 months and the development, configuration, and integration of each application into the total system was different for each component. Our main goals were education and more effective communication.
Call me anytime and I will share what I learned during the development process as it may assist you with the administration of the CKCA website.

All your hard work shows Dan. It looks like a modern up to the minute site and very much needed. Thanks so much for taking on the job. We all win!
BTW, I couldnt help but notice you used my MS Dagger on the front page. :)
