« Part 3: Only 3 Days Left To Enter Part 4 of LJ Woodworking Awards - Winter 2009 series Part 5: WINNERS ANNOUNCED »

WOW… what a competition – this is going to be tough voting. We have 58 entries in A Knot Like No Other and 48 entries in A Secret Compartment category. And now it’s time to pick your top 5 list in both categories and cast your votes (and don’t forget that three lucky random voters will win our stylish LumberJocks Shirt).

Voting deadline is on February 7th at 3 PM CDT.

Also, if you who have submitted an Awards entry, you will notice that your project is not listed when you make your selections. (You are not allowed to vote for yourself.) So don’t panic when you do not see your entry in the voting list – others can pick your entry without any problems.

The results will be announced on February 8th.

Click on the big VOTE AND WIN button on the Awards pages to cast your votes now.

Thanks, for convening these contests.

There are examples of great craftsmanship, it is particularly note worthy that this competition has highlighted some brilliant examples of the use of wood Knots Like No Others and a number of very clever Secret Compartments.

Ha! Looks like GaryK got scooped for once. He usually gives his entry a name that would guarantee that his entry comes up on the top of the list (like on the Knot Like No Other). But “puzzled” beat him by one on the Secret Compartment!

He’ll still win, of course. :^)

Tomorrow will be the last day to get our votes in.

It’s going to be really hard to make a choice, because of all the high quality entries.

I wish all who participated, The best of luck.

There’s one thing I’d like to stress.

I’d like to see more of our members participate in the voting.

The last few contests, very few of our members participated in the voting.

I’d like see a huge voter turnout!

Hi Martin….........that was not easy selecting 1 thru 5 in either challenge. The best part for me was seeing that work by individuals I am familiar with, has obviously improved. Just great seeing skills develope. The challenges that you do are so important. Thank you for your effort in this regard.
