    I voted but how hard is this to choose your favorite one when 3-4 are excellent and all are so very good.

    136 entries. WOW. I wish the pics were a little larger and clearer, but over all nice presentation. Thanks for giving us a vote!

    Those are some really a tough decisions to make. I have no Idea how the judges do it.

    C'mon everyone vote!

      I got my voting done. I thought it was interesting that there were way more intarsia/segmentation entries than any other category. Considering all the whining people do when there are "too many" articles on it in the magazine A few looked to be marquetry but it was hard to tell by the pictures.

      Great job everyone who entered!

        I'm still waiting (and waiting, and waiting) for the pictures to load. I get the dreaded x's and have to re-load everything all over again.

          Each time I reload I have to vote again to get to the next page - wondering if my votes get counted each time??

              There are some absolutely fabulous projects in there!

              I would have liked to have looked at the large versions in a slideshow rather than having to click on each individually. The thumbnails are fine for identification, but don't give any sense of the actual project and there was a lot of back and forth.

              I also would have liked to have been able to look at each set out of order.

              And with only four compound cut pieces I'm now REALLY sad that I didn't get mine done in time At least I have a head start for next year!

                I agree Rob, it took forever to open each one, then close it etc. Thumbnails were way too small to see. Seeing some side by side would have been good too.

                  Marvelous work!! Everyone who submitted an entry should be very proud! It's hard to pick from so many fantastic examples of woodcrafting.

                  I didn't see any work from "Junior Scrollers." Was that category eliminated?

                      Wow!!!

                      Now those are some great designs. I had a very hard time deciding which to vote for.

                      I too would have liked a scroll thru option per category.

                      That said great job all in all.

                      And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
                      He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
                      Many will see and fear
                      And will trust in the Lord.

                        Those were some great projects!!!!! The hardest to choose from was the intarsa/segmented work. (And, I agree with Janette on this one - I am not an intarsa guy but dang that was some beautiful intarsa work).

                        Overall, There were too many pieces that could have (and in my head - did) take my vote. But finally, I did choose one in each category.

                        Everybody who entered should be proud of their work and I appreciate that you shared it with us.

                        Thanks

                          Yes it was-because I was the only one to enter that category.
                          So they eliminated the category and put my two entrys in: Traditional Fretwork and General Scroll Saw.

                              Thanks for the feedback - yes, a slide show would have been more convenient - we'll work on that for the future.

                              As Nathan mentioned - we only had TWO entries in the junior category - and both were from Nathan... at least in compound there was someone to compete against!

                              Yes - I was also VERY surprised at the number of entries in intarsia/segmentation. And yes - we ended up putting marquetry in that category as well.

                              I'm eager to see what you guys pick!

                                For you and hotshot , remember to hide notes, chicken bones or beer cans in the stud cavities for the next remodeler to find.

                                I am partial to the folks who hide plastic skeletons in dead spaces under stairs, etc.

                                by Ennobee
                                My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                                Hi Jim.
                                glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...
