« Part 22: A Drill Press Table that will make your shop weep with joy! Part 23 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 24: The most UNIQUE drill press table you've ever seen. Drill, Baby! DRILLLLL! »

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for! Stumpy takes off his blue denim shirt and slips into a tuxedo for the biggest night of the Summer!

The second, semi-annual “Stumpies” is the world’s first low budget, mostly random and poory produced awards show just for woodworkers, and this time we’re giving out prizes for the best woodworking jigs. Who will win? Who will walk away with a free subscripton to Shop Notes? Which of Stumpy’s dumb jokes will be the biggest groaner? You have to watch to find out, and believe me… you won’t be disappointed!

Afterward, check out for more woody goodness on “the best woodworking show since the invention of wood!”

BRAVO!!!!!!!! One hand clapping. Two cup of coffee show! Like the Beatles sang “got to admit it’s getting better, getting better all the time.”

Was it me or was the camera out of focus? Probably me, first cup of coffee.

Just call me “Shamless”!

As always I’m in a category all to myself.

And I was hoping to win another bumber sticker (the first one didn’t stick very well…yes it’s still on)

I got mentioned! Wooo Hoooooo!!!!!!! Did y’all see that… the rickety looking sled made from plywood I found in the alley? I did that.. yeppers… that was my baby! I didn’t win a prize, or even get nominated, but I got mentioned and that made me smile. Thanks Stumpy!

Congrats Russ, I also like your sled best. In fact, I dismantled mine a few days ago because I needed the wood for something else. But I take pride in having shared the table saw sled category with you.

Tim, congrats to you too.. I looked at those shop machine plans the they’re nothing to scoff at.

Phil, you aced us all! And who doesn’t like reading woodworking magazines? Congratulations!

Stumpy, what a great show! And yes I most certainly am sucking up for next year’s contest. I’m gonna go buy me some pencils now. Get some sleep… you’ve earned it.

Hey Stumpy – great show. That was really a great turnout and ALOT of work on your part – good for you. Congrats to all the big winners, even Yanks I guess! He did after all, break the website with that post…...well deserved.
