Dear Paul,
You are my hero!
Not because of your amazing talent, but for being the man you are.
I still have to say that the coffee cabinet is one of the biggest wauuuuu projects I have ever seen. I simply love it!

All the best with the show Paul, there is a hell of a lot of hard work goes into making these shows a success.
I am sure your own entries will certainly help raise the bar to a very high standard.
Great support for your loved craft :-)
cheers

It really looks like a good cause, I wish I could have had that kind of opportunity when I was young. Good on you for your generous donations.

Thanks again.
I won’t be there Andre. The six days of driving back and forth from Az. kind of kills it. :-(

Please post an update here on the possibility of online bidding. I’m sure I can’t afford any of these, but if for some terrible reason they are going in my budget range, I would be on it.

Wow is right about these pieces , and a Fund for Woodworking Education as well. do they still teach woodworking in Schools other than Tech. or Vocational type schools ? I really enjoyed my time in wood Shop in HS but most of that is been shut down in favor of Computer Labs , Very Sad thing.
