Cast Your Vote!

It’s time to cast your vote in the 2010 LJ Summer Woodworking Contest. There are 77 great expressions of LumberJock creativity to choose from and you can pick your top 5. The theme was “Fluidity” and there are some great interpretations of this in the wood medium.

Voting lasts from Aug 1, 2010 through Aug 7, 2010 at 3pm CDT. Martin will be announcing winners on Aug 8th.

You Can Win Just For Voting!

The woodworkers with the most votes are not the only ones that will reap the rewards.

To help support the LJ community and Martin for all of his hard work, I am donating 3 hats from the American Craftsman Workshop as prizes to the participating voters.

LumberJocks are seeing these first as they have yet to be released even at my own site. I am offering these up as prizes at LJ first because I still consider it my home for sharing with woodworkers.

Simply casting your vote on the projects enters your name into the drawing to win one of the American Craftsman Workshop hats! You could be one of the first to be sporting the new American Craftsman Workshop baseball caps.

Names will be drawn from the pool of voters and announced after the voting has closed.

Sportin’ American Craftsman Workshop Quality

In an effort to encourage woodworkers to do their best, I had to pick a nice hat (I have a reputation at stake here.) These are high-quality baseball caps with a low profile. They have an adjustable strap as a “one size fits most” so they will fit without a problem.

So be sure to vote for your favorite top 5 entries and automatically be entered to win! After Martin announces the winners I will be contacting them by private message to get the vital shipping information.

Here are some images of the hats you can win, there are 4 colors to choose from.





That is all for now…so go vote & get a chance to win for yourself!

Your friend in the shop,
Todd A. Clippinger

Sorry Napaman – you can only vote once.
