Wow -- I cannot belive that I won.  I am humbled and excited at that same time!  There were a lot of great entries and I enjoyed reading every single one of them.  I also picked up a few tips and techniques along the way that I plan on using on future projects.  Congrats to everyone else who won and thanks again to Peter, Seth, Shane and Festool for sponsoring this contest!  Also, thanks to the judges for their time!

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to the organizers and judges.  I didn't win anything with my entry, but I enjoyed the contest all the same.  I hope that we can do something similar again.
Cheers,

 [eek] I actually won something with so many great contest entries!  Thanks to all those who made entries, voted, judged, and to Festool for prizes.  Even if I hadn't won a prize the contest was still a win for me.  I learned something from every entry and picked up several techniques and project tips and I don't do drywall (at least very well).

I think I will apply the Festool dollars for some OF2200 accessories.

You're supposed to apply the Festool dollars to accessories for a tool you don't own.  "Oh, honey, how could I be so silly! I forgot I don't have the OF-1800 XL Plus Set these accessories go with!  I'll need to buy that tool now or all these go to waste..."

Sorry I didn't respond sooner...

Congratulations to our winners, thanks to all who participated including our judges and a special thanks to our moderators who administered this entire contest start to finish.

I hope our members gleaned knowledge and saw some interesting projects from our participants. Many times, seeing someone else's work can inspire us.

Good stuff from all!  [thumbs up]

It was a privilege to be invited to help judge this contest. All the entries were excellent and each had features that were of value to FOG members. I learnt some interesting new ways of doing things as well. Well done everyone and well done to the FOG members who took the time to vote.
