Take it easy, to be honest i never saw your project come across the site. When lots of projects are posted it’s easy to miss quite a few. I honestly feel like I discover a lot of older projects for the first time all the time. I wish there was a better search mechanism here to find stuff because I suspect there are a lot of under-appreciated treasures here. Re your set of shelves, I bet you’ll get more comments once you finish it up with some doors. For now it looks pretty decent. It shows you put the effort you have into the finish.
On a totally different topic, I browsed to your “home” page here on LJ and saw you mention you took wood shop at Cornell. I assume you took Tom Cooks course. I’m curious what year. I took Tom’s class in the fall of 2003 and loved it. I wish they hadn’t forced him out so they could take over the shop space for storage. :-(

Remember, the number of comments is not necessarily proportional to amount of time and effort you put into a project. I posted a Yellowheart full kitchen not long ago. That was a Massive project that came out beautifully.It represented months of work and a $25,000 investment. I think I got 8 or 10 comments. On the other hand I posted a wood gloat last week. It consisted of buying 4 pieces of wood, standing them up in my shop and taking half a dozen fotos. I got more comments on that post than any other thing I’ve done!
It is all fun, and a great way to meet other woodworkers and wood artists.

If getting comments and encouragement here is important to you, I suggest that you make an effort to make more comments on the projects other people post. A quick check on your home page shows that you have only made 26 comments in 153 days… and most of them are on your own stuff.
Like most things in life, LJs is a place where you are likely to get back what you put into it. We’re all here because we have a passion for woodworking. We all work hard and present our projects with pride. And we all appreciate comments.
Make the effort yourself… look at other people’s projects and make some comments. If you do, you’ll get a lot of great feedback, encouragement, advice, and even make some friends here.

I agree all the way with what MaryAnne said…it’s nice to a compliment on your work, or a comment…If you think you’re not getting enough feedback on your projects, don’t post them….you know what you can do…you have nothing to prove. Sure, we all like a nod every now and then, but don’t take it to heartFolks on here comment on what they like and have time to look at…. no worries, mate.I’ve been on here going on a year, and have posted 1 project (at the request of my wife), and a few blogs.When people see your work, they’ll comment on it, or maybe they wont….sit back and enjoy the ride…..
