I don’t believe I’ve yet written about the recent award I won for my (lack of) design prowess – probably because I’m mildly ashamed. But only mildly, because it was for a piece I built in 1989, when to me all problems looked like a screw because all I had was a drill. And I won an awesome stuffed bunny, which I keep at my desk.

Yes, I am the not-so-proud winner of the Bridge City Toolworks annual Sh!t Bunny Award. You can read more about it on John Economaki’s blog, and indulge in a bit of woodworking schadenfreude.
