My brother in law would love this. He is forever making whirly gigs of all kinds and tin can soldiers.

If you don’t want to be a part of this community, please don’t sign up here. Please don’t use it just to try to promote your business. This is total BS in my opinion and your completely cold, impersonal response to the comments posted by others in your profession just confirmed my suspicion that you are just trying to promote your business. Please do take offense to this comment.

I have gotten to where I try my best to stay our of these arguments. The only reason I’m getting involved in this one is because, after looking at your other projects, I believe (hope I’m not wrong) that you do want to be part of this community and mean no harm.
That bing said, I think the best way you could promote your plans here on Lumberjocks would be to simply add a link to them in your signature. It can be added in the same place you typed up your signature that links to your facebook page. Other than that, I wouldn’t mention it unless someone asks where to get plans for one of your project. If I see a project I like, I often do ask people where they got their plans.
I’m not telling you it is wrong, or even against the rules to promote your book or your plans in responses like you have done above. The thing is though, in my opinion, that folks here have gotten tired of certain people joining here for no other reason at all except to promote their wares. We do have a forum section that is specifically for selling things is that is what they wish to do. The blogs and projects sections though usually are more discussion oriented instead of a promotional area. I truly don’t think it is against you personally. We’ve had a lot (a LOT, and I think I’ve seen more lately than usual) of new people promoting all kinds of stuff. Most of it isn’t even wood related.
I know a while back I was contacted privately with a link to where I could buy a penis pump. I’ve been approached by people trying to direct me to porn sites. It gets to a point where people just kind of develop their own zero tolerance for it.
Please take for what it is, advice. I’m not telling you what to do. I suggest though that you just link to your wares in your signature. Post projects that you yourself built. Be freindly. Answer question that arise about things like wood types and finish choices. In time, you will gain enough respect from the majority of participating members that you’ll have a little more freedom in what you say without someone trying to jump on your case.
I hope this helps you understand more about some member’s knee jerk reactions to promoting.
Welcome to Lumberjocks.
