Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let you all know that I have entered my box into the Fine Woodworking Contest.

I was hoping that I could get your support by going to their site and leave a comment on it for me.
(Positive I hope). You will need to register to be able to leave a comment.

I am pretty sure that after the contest is over I can still edit my entry. If so I am going to put a link to Lumberjocks
to get more woodworkers here. I haven’t yet because I don’t know how they would react to a plug for another

This is the box they wouldn’t print in the magazine due to the space required to show all it’s features.

You can fine it here:

You can also click the ”Thumbs Up” button in the upper right corner.

Thanks for your support. I really appreciate it.

What a great box. I like how everything is compact and available, Jenn is just taking up this kind of needle work so I can really see how your wife needs something like this to keep every (small) thing organized.

Oh yeah… you got my thumbs up as well.

Thank you all for your great comments.

majeagle1 – There aren’t any votes. Fine Woodworking magazine are the sole judges, I was just asked for support by comments.
