In just a couple of days, the Minnesota State Fair will begin. In years past, I’ve been able to judge the woodworking competition; this year, I had another commitment on the judging date. But I’m still planning to peruse the projects in the category — in between the corn dogs and the funnel cakes, of course. It’s great to see all of the hard work and unique ideas that go into the entries, and to see woodworkers get some deserved blue-ribbon recognition. In fact, it makes me wonder if any eZine readers have received your fair share of county or state fair accolades? How about it: any blue (or red, white, purple, whatever) ribbon winners out there?
