We Have a Winner!

Well over 300 entries were submitted for our latest caption contest, and for good reason. At stake was a chance to take home a beautiful marking gauge that was handmade by senior editor Matt Kenney. So now, without further ado...the winner of our latest Fine Woodworking photo caption contest is:

Rex Walters' promotion of a fictitious Asian handplane
"At first, the Japanese 'nanjakore' miniature elbow smoothing plane feels slightly awkward to use, but with sufficient practice, the results can be astounding."


Congratulations, Rex. I'll be popping your marking gauge in the mail today. Well done!


 

Please Don't Publish That

Poor Matt Kenney. Our youngest senior editor has a habit of being singled out by interesting readers—like the fellow who referred to his shirt on the cover of FWW #212 as "dandy"—as well as uppity web producers like myself.

This Photo is Begging for a Caption

During a recent video shoot for an upcoming Video Workshop project (look for it in August), I caught Matt off-guard with my still camera on more than a few occasions. And so, for our latest caption contest, I thought I'd present this more pensive, serious Matt Kenney. Did I say serious? Perhaps I meant "full of bologna." No? Ok, how about "non-chalant?" The choice is yours. Just come up with the most side-splitting, hilarious caption you can muster.

Best Caption Wins a Marking Gauge

wooden marking guageHere's the deal. Matt still has the marking gauge used in his article from FWW #211. He's willing to part with it in exchange for the reader who posts the most hilarious comment in the comments section below. Simply submit your caption between now (8/5/2011) and August 25, 2011. On or about August 26, we'll select the caption that's gotten the best response from the FW editorial staff and announce a winner. That winner gets Matt's marking gauge. It's that simple.

So sharpen up your pencils, polish up your whit, and start writing. Oh, and if you're intersted in building your own marking gauge, be sure to check out Matt's article on, well, How to Make a Marking Guage from issue #211.

Sorry, Matt.

No, I didn't glue my elbow to this board. What make you think that?

Assume a standing pose like The Thinker, place your elbow on the work piece, bear down on your elbow, and hold that position for 30 minutes. You may find it useful to use your fingers to hold your chin up for the duration of the clamping time, or scratch your nose, adjust your glasses, the choices are endless."

Then, when you see the sweat on his invisible forehead, drop your shoulder with relaxed confidence while you maneuver his elbow (also invisible) into the invisible hole in the table. It works every time, but takes lots of practice. Just like woodworking.
