Its been a pretty good summer….but not a lot of shop time. I have been spending a lot of time fishing this year, for some reason, just hadn’t the desire for the shop. Well, to make a long story short, I didn’t go to TN this month so I entered a few items in the local county fair.
I am pretty pleased with the results.
I don’t have pictures of these yet…post follow up this weekend.
Sample Cabinet – Blue ribbon
Plant Stand – Honorable mention
The Honorable mention needs a little explanation. I had an old newel post left over from when I had the house built as well as some pieces left from my Thorsten side table project. So being a practical kind of guy, I made something out of it. There was a category at the fair for recycled material, so I entered it there. I forgot to include a note of where the materials came from so when it was judged, they left me a kind note.” Beautiful entry, but perhaps it belongs in the woodworking category” Oh well.
Some of the projects are in my projects, a few are not. I will upload pictures when I pick up the entries on Sunday. right now they are on display at the fair under a clear plastic sheet that doesn’t photograph well.
