You may remember my little walnut chair I made a while back and entered into the fair. Well, the Marin County Fair started on Thursday. I was totally blown away when I got there yesterday and discovered that my chair won not only 1st place, but also best of show. Holy cow, I’ve never won anything before. That’s a $150 prize!

congratulations Steve, that is quite an accomplishment, not to mention the $150, which could go towards a new tool, I am sure.
