Thanks, Martin. And CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners of this contest. It was Very difficult to vote on only a few of the many selections, but Gary’s picture frame was the epitome of Joinery and seemed to me the hands-down winner for that idea, regardless the quality of many other pieces. They were all wonderful, and what a wide range of work presented. Thank you to Lumberjocks and all the contest sponsors.
