My first thought is to question the appropriateness of a product advertisement here.

Bandwagon…..jump on.

I am a hobbiest who has gone full time doing what I love. Blake you are kidding aren’t you?? (—Check out my website! http://www.blakeweberwoodworking.com)

Pot calling kettle?

I share my projects here in an effort to receive constructive criticism on the build and design. It has worked well over the years and I have never received such comments before.

People need to ligthen up. Who is anyone to tell someone else how to describe their project on LJs??? good grief. Panga, your description and so called “advertising” (if you can even call it that) is COMPLETELY fine.

Now….what the hell is a duckboard???? :) (it looks cool by the way!)

and I did click on your website – I like the website a lot! Great design, and looks like great products!! Very cool to be doing something you love for a living!

Completely unique and can only be found at Panga?
I have a whole rack of cracked and knotted oak.

Only kidding you my friend, and I envy your marketing skills.

Very nice, first one I’ve seen on this site.
Maybe I have this wrong but I used to walk over duckboards out east in places like muddy paths and swamps where you could walk across without getting your feet wet or muddy.
Usually I find them in National Parks where they want you to enjoy the habitat without damaging the terrain.
In the woodworking world, you can place it over hard surfaces like a garage floor where you would be standing for long periods of time. This would make it a lot more comfortable on your feet.
I guess in this case, the bathroom where you would be standing in front of the sink brushing your teeth, shaving and whatnot.
Whatever you use it for, yours looks great.

I have read your description and it does seem like you are trying to sell the duckboard. I have looked at your other projects and this is the only one that the wording sounds buy me.

Oh dear.

I seem to have upset a couple of people on LJs here. Clearly not my intention at all.

Look…..in a nutshell for those that are not in the know. I was an Engineer up until March 2010. I had heart surgery, which lost me my job and after months of applications for work after recovery, I turned to my hobby/passion for wood in an effort to generate an income. Now LJ’s was an inspiration at this time, but most were posting that you could never earn a living from this.

I am a year or so down the line now, the website is up and running with healthy sales, I sell through Amazon also which is really successful. Farmers markets locally in Yorkshire have proved to be a success too. I’m not looking for sales through LJ’s, just advice, support and occasionally an ego stroke. I post stuff on here as it’s close to my heart and I know the majority appreciate it.

It’s been a tough 18 months and I’ve learned not only to be better at my craft, but a webmaster, salesman, semi pro photographer, market stall seller, van driver, brand promoter…...the list is endless. This often means being in my cellar (the workshop) from 7am to 6pm then eat, drink and do all the other stuff until 2am. It’s not for the faint hearted (no pun intended!) and I feel that LJ’s at 1am is a great place to be, posting the weeks new projects and discussing others projects with people who understand.

Hope that clarifies a little of what I am trying to achieve and the history behind it. Not a hard knock story, but the truth nonetheless.

Can you imagine my feeling when a guy from Holland found one of my projects on LJ’s, looked up my site and purchased a stool at over £280! It was a first, will probably be the last, but the broader you are able to spread yourself….....there’s that minute chance that you will be spotted…....for interest, for a conversation or if you are lucky…..a sale. I am not selling through LJ’s just promoting what I do and why.

Thanks to all for the positive vibe I got this morning when I opened my mail. It makes all the difference. x

Panga: I was not upset about your wording in your description, I was just making an observation. I too am an Engineer who lost his job because I had three aorta dissections and another dissection I have to watch. I also started woodworking to keep me busy. I apoligize if my comment made you feel any different.

Dakremer:
As for your comment; I do not have a website and the link you have provided is not to my project. I will not be commenting on this subject anymore because life is too short to be wasted on anything so trivial.

Nice looking duckboard. After reading the link, have a better idea what a duckboard is now. Glad to hear that business is coming along. Don’t let the naysayers get to you, LJs encourages the pro links.

Panga,

I’m not trying to stir the pot. But in the 4 years I’ve been here, there is someone every couple of months that starts making posts with the clear intention to use LJ for the primary purpose of free advertising. This post was starting to look a little like that again. Its a very slippery slope, and its not the intention of the website. This is a social networking community of workers with the intent of sharing the process.

And pot calling kettle, no. I use my real name and a photo of me as an avatar and not a company name and logo. I make every post on this site in a way that tells the woodworking story from woodworker to woodworker, and I post a link to an online portfolio that doesn’t even have prices much less a shopping cart. Its a website that I try very hard to make sure is just as interesting to fellow woodworkers as anybody who might decide to pay me to build something… hence the extensive blog on my site. I have always loved looking at other woodworker’s websites after seeing what they did on Lumberjocks because it is very inspiring, so I try to reciprocate.

I’m not going to pretend I haven’t gotten client interest directed to me through LJ. But I make sure the tone I use HERE is for the woodworkers. I tell the story behind each piece in my posts, not the appeal it might have or why you should want one. Its just my opinion, and now that I’ve said it I’ll shut up. But to be honest every time someone starts “advertising” here, members get annoyed. I wasn’t the first to say something and I won’t be the last, so just be aware of that. There is a fairly strong attitude of “if you wan’t to advertise, buy the ad space on the side of the page” and “this isn’t Etsy.”

By the way, you do good work and I appreciate what you are doing with the business, and wish you luck. I especially like your Stool/Sidetable. Its very unique.

-- Happy woodworking! http://www.openarmsphotography.com
