Well, I’ve done my best, but my best may not have been good enough. I’ve cast my vote. This was a most difficult thing to do. I am unworthy to judge such an exellent collection of projects. To say which deserves to hold the place of first, second, third, fourth or fifth place in the on going contest is a most difficult undertaking. If I could vote honestly…everyone of these projects deserves to hold the first place position for all are truly works of art, technique and design. This of course is not an option. From the professionals to the hobbiest on this site come great projects. At times it is hard to distinguish which ones are done by the hobbiest or the professional because many here are so well versed in their woodworking skills.
I would like to see in, future contest, that the pictures of the entries have a box next to them to input what place one wants to put it in. It was very difficult for me to go back and forth for each entry to view a larger picture so I could better appreciate the design, construction and finish of them. Maybe the difficulty was caused by the quality of so many entries and the desire to judge wisely?
I wish the best of luck to all in this contest and want all to know that all of you are winners in my mind, because you are enjoying your woodworking and helping your fellow LumberJocks with your inspiration, skills, talent, and weath of information.
Thanks to all,
-- Jesus is Lord!
