Just curious if anyone here could PM me and help me better understand how to start a website. I have quite a collection of woodworking antique hand planes and want to start a website for those who want to share their expertise and their passion for them.

I don't have a clue as to what it would cost or how to expand it, funding it though partners in the project, probably have to use my personal funds not knowing what the start up and running costs would be, and what some pitfalls may be in time commitment, and any laws I need to know about, or resources I can research.. Now that retirement is nearing, it may be something I can devote some of my time to advancing, A new site like this would be nice for people like me who want to make their own planes, restore antique planes, use them, and trade/sell them.

Tom ... The best advice *I* can give you is to take a big hammer (10 lbs at least) and whack the holy crap out of your big toe with it every time you start thinking about starting a web site ... smile Repeat as often as necessary to make the idea go away.

Seriously, though, PM both Paul (Baldeagle) and I and we can share some thoughts about what we've learned over the last 25 years of doing this site.
