Hi everyone
Just got the results from the NC Woodworkers 2010 Calender contest and it appears that my rendition of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello won the spot for artistic scroll saw work. Very excited to say the least as there was a lot of excellent talent displayed.

Thanks everyone for the comments.There is a lot of talent in the NC group so I feel honored for my art to be chosen for the calender. To Jerry—I am sure that the calender will be offered through the NC Woodworkers site.
