Here is the information that appeared in Wood Magazine’s e-mail:

WOOD’s looking for a few good shops

The second edition of America’s Best Home Workshops is nearly complete and will hit newsstands in late May. Now we’re looking for candidates for the third edition. That’s where you come in. Do you (or someone you know) have a shop that other woodworkers love to check out? Is it especially well-organized, or full of great jigs, storage ideas, or other interesting shop features? If so, the editors at WOOD magazine would like to hear from you. We’re looking for hard-working shops of all sizes and descriptions: big or small, elaborate or down-to-earth. You can also nominate individual shop organizers or jigs for the project gallery section. Following is the web site:

Maybe I am somewhat biased but I have seen some shops here that are deserving of being entered in this contest.

If I was ready it wouldn’t be going to Wood mag.
They seem to have lost their way over the last few years.

I wouldn’t post post a pic of my shop for you guys to see. I am definitely not going to enter a contest.
