Hey Mike… please consider adding my woodworking site/social links to your “Links” page on your site.
Sure thing! They’ve been added!
Lately, I have been designing many new plans for MyOutdoorPlans.com, as content creator. If you have time, you could take a look over the projects I feature on the site and maybe you find something worth sharing with your readers. Many of the plans have user submitted images with completed projects.
Nice site you have there. Can you actually download any of the plans in their sketchup format?
Hello Mike, I would be interested in exchanging links. Nice site you’ve got here!
