2009 Holiday Wish List: Winners Announcedcomments (1) January 11th, 2010 in blogs
Congratulations to the winners of our "Giveaway and Poll: The Most Requested Woodworking Gifts of 2009."
Below you'll find the final breakdown of polling results in descending order of popularity (top three). Perhaps the most intriguing results came from the "Most Popular Shop Gear" category. Good old lumber took the top spot and we can't help but wonder if perhaps that is a reflection of the tough economic times we're facing these days. Folks could have gone with clamps for the top spot, or perhaps even a bench. Instead, it was a simple stock pile of materials that most folks were after.
