I was really hoping GaryK’s box would win this contest. But he did get on the page of most commented on. I want to congratulate Gary on his master craftsmanship. Well done Gary. (I do think your box is nicer than the winner’s—but I wasn’t the judge.) :-)

I thank you Betsy and all the others that helped.

That was one of the last boxes I thought would win, but who knows what they are thinking. Oh, well.

They did add a link to Lumberjocks in my name anyway, so we’ll see what that does for Lumberjocks.

Congrats GaryK!! Is that box posted in your projects? I didn’t see anything that looked suspicious.

Congrats Gary!

I must say that I haven’t even noticed the winner box until it won the prize… it does look like a beautiful piece, I like it’s simplicity – but yeah, didn’t quite catch my attention till it was all over.

Again, Gratz GaryK!. That box of yours is truly a masterpiece. The judges must have been partial to someone or something else. I can only dream of having the skills that you have in creating a work of art such as that box.

Just an FYI. Locks of love sent a card back with a nice thank you note.

Gary, I don’t know what they are thinking….............. The winner “was” a nice box, but didn’t hold a candle to the masterpiece that you made….............. You’re a winner in my book Gary !!!!!!!
Keep up the good work.

So that’s the box you are talking about. What ever won the contest must have been something out of this universe!! I saw it almost 2 months ago. Geez, I hate this getting old, fat, slow and loosing my mind ;-)
