We all went to the State Fair this morning (10:30 AM- 1:30 PM) and I'm tired of walking! :x
I only went to see how my entrys scored......not too good but, not bad... :-?
What I thought was my best chance for a ribbon didn't do well.

See "Octagon Oak Table" was a dud"

This is the reason......a gun case TO DIE FOR!!!!

See "First place/best of show"

The "Wooden Watch" which was entered as an after thought should have stayed just a thought.

See "Wooden Watch was an also-ran"

But, the "Plywood Vase" brought home the bacon.....Well, a second place ribbon anyway.

See "Plywood scrollsaw vase took a 2nd"

This is some of the compition for the table. The tall nightstand :confused: took a second to the gun case. :confused:

See "Some of the comp."

Oh well, there is always NEXT YEAR! :D At least I got a second place ribbon insted of another third like the last two years, so I must be improving. :lol: :lol:


PS. Just a few notes about the Gun cabnet....It was about 7' tall, a corner cabnet with more glass in it than my house has, was made of cherry (I think) and beautiful workmanship. It holds 12 guns (rifles or shotguns) on a 'lazy susan' base and had lights inside and deserved the awards for sure. I do kind of wonder if the builder isn't a pro or at least very experianced (like years and years) wood worker.

Dont badmouth no strangers, they just friends you aint met yet.

An ounce of responsibility is worth a pound of State and Federal laws.

I spent most of my money on woodworking
tools and beer, the rest I just wasted.

I was at the county fair yesterday and as always I looked at the schools wood working projsects. We have some very good shop teachers teaching some dedicated students. Yet some schools just don't get it! The difference between the schools is enormous. It is good to see that some adults are still making projects to encougage the youth. I have often thought of entering some of my work at shows but I never seem to get around to making projects for shows. But then if I did I would probably get beaten by some of the better students.
