A good week at the fair


I have made a total of three of these Jeffersonian bookstands. Donated the first two and I entered the third one in the blue ribbon competition at the Salem Fair, which is the largest fair in the state of Virginia. It won blue ribbon 1st place in woodworking, it won blue ribbon for Best in Show, and it won the ribbon for Grand Champion. I apologize for tooting my on horn but I am simply shocked and amazed and wanted to share with all of you.
