In order to do this, feedback is essential. We've received tonnes of
feedback so far, and for those of you who do visit regularly, you'll
notice the site is constantly changing. If we remove something (or add
something) that you like or dislike, then please tell us, and we will
do our best to rectify it.
I have received a lot of flack (and a lot of support) over the two
months for the site, so am taking this opportunity to "set out my
stall", as it were and respond the more prominent issues.
Your Feedback so far...
As well as much appreciated positive and negative, constructive
feedback we've recieved, we've also received a lot of unconstructive
feedback. Most of this is aimed at the fact we have Google
Advertisements on our pages, and implies that this site is constructed
solely for us to make money from you clicking on those ads. For those
of you who want more info on how I generate revenue from Google
Advertisements, then take a look at the link.
....and for a site like this, create a very small amount of income. If
you compare the amount of time I take over this site, to the income I
recieve, you'll notice that I'm not doing it for the money, just to
help pay towards the rediculous cost of internet in Britain!
On a typical day I make 0.42 dollars which is 0.217275 GBP (under 22
pence). Please also remember that I don't at any stage ask, force or
make anyone click on these ads.
Right. Enough of that; back to the point in hand.
Feedback has shown that the vast majority of people who visit this site
already know what they're looking for. So it has been decided to make
the site simpler to use, by placing everything in a Woodworking Topic
(or Genre), and then placing the results alphabetically; and binning
the Alphabetical Litings, the store and the forum. This will happen in
Also, thanks to constructive advice from Jim Barry at
www.woodworkersworkshop.com, I am in the process of updating my links
to include their sources, so once you've found what you're looking for,
you can get the advice and support of those who posted the plans in the
On a final note, a bit about me....
My name is Barry and i live in Northern England. I'm recently married
and have one son. I have been into woodworking from an early age, and
my first project was a very basic pencil case we made at school.
I have since made many different projects including a fish tank stand,
Coffee Table, Computer Desk, a bridge for the garden, pergolas, a
greenhouse, 3 sheds, and a house number plate, but have more recently
been concentrating on building my "ideal" workshop.
I've always been interested in computers, so mixing two hobbies seemed
like a good idea.
I hope you enjoy the site and keep revisiting and maybe add a plan/link
