To All at Lee Valley,
My wife and I have looked to your company for our needs and wants in gardening [my wife) and woodworking (me). We have always been impressed with the quality and the descriptions of the products you sell. They are never exaggerated and have evidence of having been used for by someone really knowledgeable about the product. Your print catalogues are often used for browsing and ideas as well. The information about Mr. Lee contained in his remembrance piece in Finewoodworking, to which I have been a long subscriber, tells of a person whose character is reflected in the way he developed and shaped his company. Many thanks for your excellent service. I hope the company ethos does not change.
Thanks to all.

Count me in!!
I hope to win
Two great authors. Hard to choose between them.
I need a whittling book.
Yet another hobby to not be able to spend enough time on. Why not?
55 years ago I started whittling in the Boy Scouts for a merit badge. I've never stopped enjoying how you can turn a piece of "found" wood into something fun for myself or family (extended of blood relatives), especially our grandkids who love the whistles or hand propellers. My love of wood working has expanded over the years to where I'll be teaching a LifeLong learning class in whittling this fall at Stetson University. And, I've expanded my wood working over the years into cabinetry and turned projects so in retirement I'm enjoying a small furniture building business. My cane collection includes caricatures and designs I've enjoyed adding to their character. I greatly appreciate how Fine Woodworking is always there to expand my knowledge and horizons with quality information and inspiring projects.
Count me in too, thx
My son would love this book.
They look interesting.
Great addition to the library!!!
Good skills to have in my back pocket for when I'm old on my front porch! Also sounds fun at 26 tooooo.....non the less going to be handy to have a stick to help get out of my chair when I'm done whittling at 96!
Hoping to win one of these, thank you!
i love whittling!
Whittling and Walking. A very good combination indeed.
I haven't use a knife for this for some time. It would be fun to do it again.
Whittling is great way to break into woodworking... doesn't cost much to get started, minimum space needed, and very portable.
I would love to add these to my library, thanks!
Two great books for my Grandkids.
These look interesting!
Would love to add these books to my collection.
Count me in.
I've started off with spoons (can't claim to have mastered them yet!), but I'd love to learn more techniques and plans.
Whittling sticks... where I began woodworking. Count me in!
I'm doing more carving these days. Both of these books would be nice.
How I got started. I like to revisit this.
I would love to add these to my woodworking library.
These look great.
Looks like a couple of great books
I love woodworking books almost as much as I love woodworking. Thanks for the give away!
I love learning new crafts especially for the fairs. I try the wood crafts and last year I made kid's blocks. :) They were so cute and I love using the sander etc. So I would really enjoy learning more like the whittling and stickmaking. We are never too old to learn and we have alot of trees around the farm to choose from so I am set. I even have the wood cutting tools I found at a thrift shop. Thanks for the giveaways.
Really like simple carving designs.
I truly need these books so that I can improve my wit and beat someone with a stick.
I am always looking for more information to improve my carving skills. I would love these.
Look like books i will enjoy to read :)
Let the giveaway starts :)
Looks like fun! Sign me up!
WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY TO SPEND A DAY.
