I am happy to say that the winner of the Craftsman scroll saw returned the email and it's now Official. Jerry Bair Has won the scroll saw and Jared Schlabach won the $20 Amazon gift certificate for answering the bonus question first.
It was funny when I emailed each of them to let them know they won. They both replied that they never win anything. Now they can check that off their list of things to do.
In the picture of Jerry above he is holding his first scroll saw project. He cut it from Teak that a relative brought back from WWII. Now that's a great way to make a family heirloom. I am honored that he cut it using one of my patterns.
Jerry plans to give the saw to his son Brian who is just back from his military tour in Iraq. I am thrilled that the saw will go to such good use. Congratulations Jerry/Brian.
When I posted the video of the winner I had included a bonus question and Jared was right on the ball with the answer. I think it took him about three minutes to email the correct answer. I'll have to make the next one a little harder.:) Jared tells me he has been scrolling about one year and has cut several of my patterns. Thanks Jared it's great to have you with me.
Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Wish I could give you all a prize. You guys are all winners in my book.
