Another use for ShopFileR

Posted on October 15, 2008. Filed under: ShopFileR |

One of the main ways that I use ShopFileR is in doing initial research for a new project and saving that information,  keeping it organized and quickly available. 

I typically will setup a new project in ShopFileR then spend some time searching through the various woodworking sites and forums for pictures of similiar projects and gather construction and finishing ideas.  I save the ones I like, as part of the project, either as a web link, or as an .mth file, possibly with comments for later reference.  I also include links to the various suppliers that I may use when purchasing materials for the project, along with keeping an ongoing materials list and notes on the project. 

Its a nice way to keep all the links and information relating to a project together, especially when I need to go back a year or so later and remember, for example, how the finish was done or where to buy matching hardware.
