Nice idea.

I'm a facebook user myself, and didnt even think of doing anything like that. Although my turnings pale in comparison..

Great job, I hope it does well for you.

Maybe it's not worth much, but I started VERY slowly, by word of mouth.  It slowly spread to a couple of exhibits at the local arts centre, then a craftsale...sold a couple of pieces.  Then word got around that I did woodturning, and people I knew expressed an interest...sold a couple more, and I believe in the near future, I may have more and more sales because of the exposure I'm getting here.  I just recently sold a piece (as a retirement gift)to a disrict attourney, and got more exposure there.  It's slow, maybe painful, but I'm in it for the joy, not the money.  Once it becomes too big, it stops being a hobby and starts being a business.  I like it the way it's working now, because my customers are spreading the word out there for me, and if they really like my work, they'll promote me to others.  Hope this was helpful to you.  I also have my work on facebook, and my own website, and to be honest, I got absolutely NO sales from it, nor any real exposure that means anything.  It's nice to put pieces up there, but I wouldn't count on business booming from it.

Nvu is good, Komposer is the upgrade from Nvu.
I highly recommend Komposer
