Default Toot my own horn

First time I ever entered anything anywere. My wife told me I should enter the local country 4H fair so being a good husband I did. The judge picked my work as being champion of the woodworking class!

Just about forgot the most important thing. The pattern maker is Kerry Hallam. It was in the 2012 issue 47 of SSWC mag. The title he gave the pattern is "Setting Pretty". Thanks Kerry for making such a great pattern!

You should be tooting your own horn. That is beautiful and I love the way you framed it.

Your choice of matting and the frame really set it off! Excellent.
