Congrats to the winners and all the participants of this contest. I know I had such a difficult time making my votes due to the overwhelming amount of incredible work. It still blows me away thinking about all the incredible talent we have here in Lumber Jocks.

Thanks go to everyone that entered this contest and made it so lively.

And a big thanks to everyone who voted on my box!!!

I didnt expect to do as well as I did, there were so many great projects to choose from.
I had a difficult time deciding on how best to spend my votes, I felt like a kid with a nickle in a candy store.

Congratulations to Owen and RJ for getting the votes they deserved, these are both great designs.

Most important is the sense of comaraderie we all felt, and being a part of something bigger than ourselves.

Thanks again to all of you for your support.
