« Part 8: Giving the Tenon a Wedgie Part 9 of Step Stool series Part 10: Hey Brother, Can You Spare a Vote? »

So the big news of the day is that the results are out!

I really didn’t expect to win, or even to come close, with my step stool. I did have a secret desire that I would get a vote. If I got just one vote, I would have been ecstatic. Instead, I actually got 10 votes, including one vote for 1st place. Thank you!

No, don’t worry, fellow Jocks, I don’t have any delusions of grandeur. I can see the entries below mine just as well as you can, and that the originality and/or craftsmanship of many of them is far superior to that of my little stool. But I appreciate the support that so many of you have given me in my journey so far, and these few votes just made my day.

Now if only I can register my kids as LumberJocks, I can jimmy a couple more first-place votes as their voting custodian…

I’m planning to build something just like this. Well, not really. It won’t have the nice dovetailed corners and I’ll use the wood I already have so it will be a completely different look, but it will be a stool. Looks like yours, is being used by someone very happy to have it. That will be my main goal. nice work!

Great stool, I may steal… I mean borrow, your design. I know EXACTLY how you feel about the contest – my entry landed me about the middle of the road on the tray contest and I was thrilled. And… I also got one 1st place vote, WOO-HOO! ;-)

Congrats!

Tim, steal all you want, as long as you post pics and talk about the journey!

I don’t think of it as theft – I think of it as open source. :^)
