« Part 35: Ohhh- You meant THAT kind of "stool sample"... Part 36 of Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About series Part 37: Funny Festool Video- The Finest Woodworker in the World? »

In case you haven’t heard on CNN or read in the New York Times, Rockler announced the results of their first annual Nordy’s video awards. (Named after the founder of the company) And guess who took home top honors? I don’t mean to “toot” my own horn, here… actually I do… I am pretty proud to be associated with a company like Rockler for my woodworking videos. I work very hard to make woodworking “info-tainment” and it feels good to be recognized for my work. So good, in fact that I just HAD to tell everyone about it. Yes, I know it’s a bit of a “no-no” to point out ones own accomplishments. But hey, I had a good day today and I’m gonna talk about it!

So, if you haven’t seen it yet, sit back and have a cold one with me and enjoy the sweet, sweet lyrics of “Rappin’ Roy Underhill”- a video about what inspires me to be a woodworker.

And consider this my public thanks to Rockler and all those involved in this year’s contest!

And if you liked that… here’s the latest episode of the regular show…

Shane- What did I win? The recognition for a job well done! The “atta-boy” from my colleagues after a year and a half of woodworking videos. The respect and admiration of a generation of young woodworkers who can look at me with a tear in their eye and say “I want to be just like Stumpy!”

...That and a $500 Rockler gift card. Which is pretty sweet.

Who cares about the $500? It is all about the respect of your fellow woodworkers. Right? Well done, what are you going to get?

If anyone deserves the recognition for all the hard work, it’s you!

Although, you might want to edit your second paragraph. I know it’s a typo, but ” Rapin’ Roy Underhill”...well…folks might get the wrong idea. A single P changes a lot sometimes.

So you never did tell us who took home top honors. Was it Roy? Everybody loves Roy. I bet it was Roy. Roy’s our hero…..

Congrats Stumpy’s father’s son!!!

A well deserved honor!!!
I bet it’s that new HD camera, that sealed the deal!!!
Go ahead, climb to the highest mountain, yell to the world your accomplishment as loud as you can, then crack a few cold ones.

Now remeber, you can have multiple delivery addresses for a Rockler order!!!
