Wondering how to make this Leap Day special?

I have the answer ;) Go to your workshop, pick one of your tools, snap 1-3 photos of that tool and post your personal review to extend our growing collection of the real reviews by real woodworkers.

And what makes it special, you ask? As you know, Leap Year Day is February 29th and is added to the calendar every four years (with few exceptions). So here’s the deal – out of all Leap Day review posters we will have 4 random winners of a very special $29 gift certificate. This chance only happens once in every four years!

I will announce the winners on Monday, March 3rd.

To get some inspiration, see our growing index of the reviewed products.

It ain’t the camera, it’s the computer! If I have the product can I post the mfgr’s web photos of it?

Hi,
I don’t no if I jumped the gun. I posted one already.

Was I supposed to wait until the 29th?

Looks like a number of people have posted reviews since Martin’s announcement besides Dick, so I jumped in as well. My guess is that Martin will accept any reviews that were submitted after his announcement.

Martin,

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!!!!!!!!

It is impossible to keep current with all these new posts. They are coming in so fast that I, for one, am simply going to raise the white flag and give up. I surrender. I just can’t do it.

Oh well back to posting.

Seriously, Thanks. With all the interest this has generated it is great for the site.

As if anyone needs $29 more than I do. LOL
