no previous part Part 1 of WoodBuzz series Part 2: Features to include on Woodbuzz? »

I am still in consideration of making a woodworking website, since I am well versed in web work…and wood work. Please understand, this would not be anything like LJs; it would be more of a resource/reference/news site. The possible exception is a forum, but just about every community website must have one.

I think this niche is under served – with the possible exception of Fine Wood Working – but you need to be a member there to get any of their articles.

I won’t off any false pretenses; this site would be a for-profit venture – not through membership fees or donations (very few donate) – but ad based, as is LJs.

I’d appreciate any feedback on this endeavor.

-- Have a blessed day!

When I lived in NC, I frequented the NCwoodworkers website. It was only for NC residents. It was nice being able to actually meet and have functions with LIVE people. I have often thought that a person with the right web ability and motivation could create a series of state by state woodworking sites. You could probably find a moderator for every state fishing LJ’s.
This way you can interact with state locals, visit shops and so forth. I know that through the NC site, I not only met fellow ww’ers, but I bought a nice drum sander, sold a bench and alot of wood. I also got heads up on local deals. Seems like you could get tons of money from adds since you could target 50+ sites. Just remember me when you make your first million.

Well, the first thing you need before going into business is a general idea what you’re going into business to do – which you don’t really.
