          Hey, this thing won't let me vote twice! Having lived in Chicago and then Hudson County in Jersey for about 28 of my 33 years, I think my civil rights are being violated here! I haven't voted only once in ANY election since my first presidential election when I was 12!!!

              So hard to choose. I definitely need a couple more votes.

                Stunning work. I'd never think that a simple 2 x 6 could me made into such beautiful pieces. Makes me realize how much I have to learn.

                  I felt terrible about having to make a decision! I thought this would be easy! I mean, what can you make with a 2X6, really?

                  I felt just as bad about choosing just one entry as I was happy that I didn't enter and embarass myself.

                    I am in awe of the creativity here - everyone is a winner in my book!! It is realy hard to pick just one. My hat's off to each and every one of you!!

                      Wow, some really amazing entries. One vote.........hard decision to make.

                      This contest was a great idea as it is truly inspiring to see what can be done with a simple 2X6. All the tools in the world and a lumber yard full of wood does not guarantee a great completed project.

                      This just proves that the most valuable part of woodworking is creativity and craftsmanship. These entries have underscored this and I for one have gotten a great deal of inspiration from these entries.

                      My hats off to all who posted thier entries. A GREAT job by all and to all my heartfelt THANK YOU !!

                        I have to agree with what's already been said. These are amazing pieces. I would like to know though.... Some of the non-turned entries look like they had to have had some turning involved.

                        This is a really tough choice, everyone obviously put thought into how they could really stand out in this challenge.

                          Ditto what's already been said. But WOW!!! You guys are good. I can only hope to have the talent to pull off some of these projects one day. GREAT JOB!!!

                            That was probably the hardest vote I ever cast. You guys did excellent work and all of you should be proud. As time goes on I hope I can learn more from your knowledge. GREAT JOBS!!!!!

                              Ditto what everyone else said. I had to go back and look at the choices a dozen times before I finally picked one, and even then I still wasn't 100%. There were easily 4-5 that I could have picked.

                              Someday I hope to have 1/10 of the skill you guys do! Bravo to everyone!
