A few weeks ago, we had a “Caption the Photo” contest, for which we received nigh-on 200 entries , so many, in fact, that out server kept timing out when I tried to view them in Firefox (Safari solved the problem).

So, I culled through them and picked my top-10 favorites, then had everyone else pick his or her top two from my list. My favorite was from Ric: “…. so what are you waiting for? There are lots of woodworkers waiting to chat with you! Come on and join the party, dial 1-900-…..”

However I’m sad to report, Ric, that you and I must have a skewed (ha!) sense of humor. The grand-prize winner, based on a semi-democratic vote, is Trevor: “Hello, Jack? You Know those 1,500 bowls we needed by tomorrow? Yeah, that was a typo, we only need 15…Jack? Jack? Hello?…”

So Trevor, as soon as I track down your address, I’ll be sending you your prize: Our new “The Best of Shops & Workbenches” CD, which has 62 of our favorite articles on building benches, setting up your shop and filling it with the jigs you need. (You can see a slideshow of the contents of our $15 CD here.)
