I won first place out of 100 entries!
I get a $150 DVD set on woodworking. It is the entire contents of FWW, every single article, tip, picture and project from the first issue in 1975 to 2009. I have been wanting one of these.

Eye Candy

Thanks to everyone that voted in mind and deed.
Your support has been overwhelming and encourages me.
Thanks again,

-- If I can do it, so can you.

I am excited for you Andy. The recognition is well deserved. As I have said before the box is simply gorgeous and your time and effort, as well as your artistic skill with its conception and design, certainly deserve recognition.
