You are jumping the gun Obi. Martin will get something posted on the welcome page. We don’t have all of the particulars as to finish dates etc.

Oh well … we can still have the challenge if it’s only between you and I. there doesn’t have to be any prizes … looks like all the other jocks are skeered anyways. Besides this is MY blog and I’ll lie if I want to, lie if I want to, lie if I want to, it’s my blog and I’ll lie if I want to… (you know the rest of the song)

I didn’t say that there wouldn’t be any prizes, I just said that there wouldn’t be any winners.

I’m famous for jumping the gun, Karson. It’s called walking by faith. IS there a door? Is it open? If not kick it in and see whats behind it. Besides, it’s easier to get forgiveness than it is to get permission.

If you recall I stuck a Lumberjocks logo on my website without asking. Tell the world that there’s a race and someone will show up. I expect Mark to put down his M&M’s long enough to build a table. Dick will build anything, I’m sure he can build one. If Dusty has gotten out of jail for freezin that poor old woman to death, I’ll bet he’s in …

Hopefully we’ll get all of the particulars out in a day or two. And then we can get to work.

But just to let you know you are probably behind because I’ve cut all the rough pieces and glued up the top. (Not the breadboards yet)

This maybe the preliminary, depending if I like it or not.

Just something that I had laying around. (not pine, I don’t have pine laying around.)

I’m going to get my two son’s to make one also. And if I like their’s better, I might say It’s my wood so I’ll trade you. No where in the rules is it going to say you can only make one anyways. Besides I’m making up the rules.

You bet, I’m going for the stash, but I don’t know which one will look better. This is no crap sticks. It’s imported Dude. But just laying around. Besides anything left on the property when I die, will probably be sold at garage sale disaster prices. So I might as well use it in the challenge.

There’s not enough there to build an entertainment center. And it’s tough to pick up one board, little lone a completed project.
