« Part 3: Submissions Are Open Part 4 of LJ Woodworking Awards - Winter 2008 series Part 5: The Voting Is Over... »

January has been an entertaining and inspiring month, as the entries for our two Awards categories came in. I am very pleased to see the excellent response – with 50 boxes and 34 2×4 projects. Also, the challenges that we host throughout the year are intended to provide woodworkers the opportunity to expand their own skills. I think you have outdone yourselves. Very impressive work. You are all winners already. Congratulations.

And now, an exciting week is ahead of us as we meet the biggest challenge of all – the voting! With all the amazing entries it is going to be really difficult to select a top 5. But, this is what it’s all about. It’s time to select our Award winners.

So, you have until February 7th at 3 PM Central to make your selections.

Only LumberJocks who have posted at least one project in the past are allowed to vote and, for those of you who have submitted an Awards entry, you will notice that your project is not listed when you make your selections. (You are not allowed to vote for yourself.) So don’t panic when you do not see your entry in the list for voting purposes – others can pick your entry without any problems.

Then on February 8th I will announce the Award Recipients. Good luck everyone (with the voting and with the Awards).

Click on the big VOTE AND WIN button on the Awards pages to cast your votes now. Yes… the button caption contains WIN word since the three lucky random voters will win our stylish LumberJocks Shirt ;)

Once again GOOD LUCK!

I think the real winner is those of us who get to admire these projects. There’s some very cool stuff there! ;)

Looked, listed, relooked, reconsidered, and then went with my first choices. IT IS TOUGH. Amazing talent here and this contest just touches the tip of the iceberg IMHO!! And after you look at them you have the Post Contest Stress syndrome of :”So many ideas, so little time!!” (Of course for you young whippersnappers, time is not critical problem!!)

WOW! Some great projects there! I’m still stunned by some of the 2X4 entries, it’s amazing what we can see in something as simple as a ‘board’! Great contest.

well.. I did it.. I can’t believe it. Now, I’m not looking again because I’ll feel guilty about my choices. They are ALL so deserving of recognition.
