    2013 state fair results

    stopped out to the fair today with the wife , and got some pics of the results of what was entered. the cutting board took second place, and i've included a pic of what took first place. the walking stick didn't place, but they put it in the display, which is pretty good in and of itself. plotting and planning for next year.....

    Personally, I like your board better than the one that took first place and I'm not saying that because you're a member of the Family. Both boards took some planning to get the parts matched up. Maybe the judges liked the softened edges of the winning board. You still have a winner, though!

    Congrats, Dan. I like the 3-D pattern, but I also like the softened edges of the end grain board. I also like the looks of the jewelry box in the background of your cane pic.

    workmanship - 18.5/20
    originality - 14/15
    difficulty of project - 14/15
    usefulness - 10/10
    value in point of interest - 10/10
    value of article in relation to work done & material used - 10/10

    walking stick - design(beauty suitability, color) - 17.5/20
    workmanship - 17.5/20
    originality - 14/15
    difficulty of project - 13.5/15
