“I am a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down…”
— Abraham Lincoln
Hard to believe, but the Pasadena version of Woodworking in America begins on Friday. Can’t wait to put the Dream Team to work… We will have 5 Jointmaker Pro’s making components for Cooter Ditchman’s Earthquake After Detector..
You can purchase this freshly made and unbelievably accurate device at WIA for a minimum donation of ten bucks–ALL funds go to the Roger Cliff Memorial Fund which provides need based scholarships for the Marc Adams School of Woodworking.
We will have 5 brand new Jointmaker Pro’s with our new Precision Fence Systems that can be taken home on Saturday at end of show. First come first served is the deal. We are throwing in the stand for…. FREE!
We will also be demonstrating the HP6v2, the DJ-1 and the AS-24v3. Mainly though, we just want to have fun with our customers.
The votes are tallied and here are the winners for the 2012 Rarest Wood in the World contest;
FIRST PLACE (with 33% of all votes)
SECOND PLACE (with 25% of all votes)
THIRD PLACE (with 22% of all votes)
This was a complete sweep by one Dr. Peter Franks. I know it looks rigged but I am from Des Moines, not Chicago.
Congratulations Peter–that is a whopping $850 Gift Certificate coming your way. And due to the overwhelming benevolence of your favorite Tool Potentate, the LOSERS are now WINNERS too–each of you finalists will receive a $50 Gift Certificate for your entries. I really want to do this again next year so put your thinking caps on and let’s create together the Rarest Woods in the World Museum.
I hope to see some of you in Pasadena!
