I posted in a previous blog how I was directed by a fellow Lumber Jock to enter Fine Wood Woodworking’s jig competition with my miter spline jig. I was hesitant at first, but eventually came around to entering it. Well, I checked in just now and seen ”I Made One Of The Finalist!!!!!”

I am so stoked to see the news. I am in disbelief I came in the top 5…. I will be honest… Right now I am on cloud 9…lol

Thanks for all the words of encouragement yall.

Thanks everyone! I wish I had half the confidence yall have with this…lol

I am along the lines of what Shelia mentioned…. I am flat out tickled to be in the top 5 of the competition. To me just the fact I made that spot is a complete honor.

Thanks everyone for the kind words…..
