Well I cant say I would blame anyone for not using the site I put up after all it did keep crashing. When it seemed like all was well it was not. I am not a programmer so I took a few classes and kept trying again and again. I even used software that I bought but that turned out to be a disaster. I will say no more about that. Now after about 6 weeks of running its still up and seems to be doing very well but because of past failures no one has knows its there. If you have some items you are looking to get rid of I hope you will post them here

sandhill, If its not an infrigment on Martin, contact every LJ who is selling wood and at least that would be a start. If I am correct, you are not charging anything for this so it would be a great place to find items.

I’m using firefox and it went to a different site. Be sure to put a www in front – see if this works better:

There is no charge. As far as contacting everyone here I would feel like I was spamming everyone so I will let the word travel on its own merit Thanks for the encouragement. I just wanted to get something going that was for the Woodworkers and ween out the other stuff as it fills up.

I see some people who sign up just to sell one machine recently. Maybe you can direct some of those guys to your site. Like Jim and David said, you just need one break and once traffic builds up posters will be rolling in. If posting is free some people will bite

Selling is allowed here and there I guess it would be another resource. I hope it is anyway… Its free for anyone even businesses. IRS, EX-Factory M-MLS Just no forums or show case Only buy sell or trade its always evolving so who knows what will come next if anything.

OK; I looked, I joined, and I think it’s a good idea. I will as soon as I get time put some items on here that I want and need to get rid of. I’m not a computer GEEK but will try. Most of my items that I need to get rid of are large but I do have a new item “Shopping Cart Caddy” that by the 22nd of this month should be online on our new website. Plus Howard Products wood restoration and cleaning products. We will be working all week-end getting the site up and running. The url will be Thanks for putting up a site like this

Thanks for the effort to provide a new resource to us woodworkers. Just put it on my favorites, hope it takes off and gives CL some competition.

There are 4 new features Poll take the survey Random Ads This previews the ads on top of the classifieds ad sections so each ad gets to be showcased with its photo and all ads are rotated through each time the page is brought up in a new browser. Video Link This is a new video I have found on YouTube, I will change the video as I find new ones out on the NET and as they come down I will archive them for you to search and view again. Some people prefer not to have there videos on other sites and ask that they be removed so this will be the only time I will remove them and it will be noted as such. Web Links These are links to resources as well as Craftsmen sites that sell there crafts. Check them out and enjoy I will ad as much new content as time and space allows .
