On June 8th there will be a drawing to see who wins $100 credit in our web store. This way you can select just about anything you want and finally get some respectable handles on your knives.

Here is how the contest works.
Make a post with your guess what type of wood this is. Only one guess. The post number is your entry.
I will use the random number generator at random.org to pick the winning post number. This way everyone has a chance to win.

You can make additional entries to increase your chances by posting a new joke, funny story or something entertaining.

The wood is a native Oregon hardwood. But, it doesn't usually look like this.

Wife - "Where the hell have you been? You said you'd be done with golf by noon!"

Husband - "I'm so sorry, honey...but you probably don't want to hear the reason."

Wife - "I want the truth, and I want it NOW!"

Husband - "Fine. We finished in under four hours, then I had a quick beer in the Clubhouse. I hopped in the car, and would have been here at noon, but on the way home, I spotted a girl half my age struggling with a flat tire. I changed it in a jiffy, and next she's offering me money. Of course I refuse it - Then she tells me she was headed to the bar at the Sheraton - and begs me to stop so she can buy me a beer. She's such a sweetie, I said yes. Before you know it - one beer turned to three or four, and I guess we were looking pretty good to each other. Then she tells me she has a room here, and suggested we get some privacy while pulling me by the hand. Now I'm in her room....clothes are flying ......the talking stopped....and well, it must have gone on for hours, because before I know it the clock says 5:30. I jumped up, threw my clothes on, ran to the car, and here I am. There. You wanted the truth....you got it."

Tom decided to tie the knot with his longtime girlfriend. One evening, after the honeymoon, he was cleaning his golf shoes. His wife was standing there watching him.
After a long period of silence she finally speaks. "Honey, I've been thinking, now that we are married I think it's time you quit golfing. Maybe you should sell your golf clubs."
Tom gets this horrified look on his face.
She says, "Darling, what's wrong?"
”There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-wife.”
"Ex-wife!" she screams, "I didn't know you were married before!"
”I wasn't”

Norwegian Joke.

Sven and Ole are standing on the 18th tee playing their club golf championship. They are the final twosome and tied for the lead. The 18th hole is a beautiful par three with a deep valley descending down with a slight dogleg right with the green disappearing beyond some trees.

Both Sven and Ole hit perfect, fading tee shots which disappear down into the valley and out of view towards the green. As they are walking toward the green, they see a ball about six inches from the hole, and after looking a bit more they realize that the other ball is in the hole: a hole in one.

Sven and Ole then ask each other what type of ball were they playing, and they both say they are playing Titlist #4 balls. They pull the ball out of the whole and sure enough it is a Titlist #4 and the other ball six inches away from the hole is also a Titlist #4. Sven and Ole look at each other and have no way of figuring out which ball is whose.

Sven looks at Ole and says, "We had better get a ruling from a tournament official to straighten this out." "This is the club championship and we don't want to be disqualified for making a mistake and hitting the wrong ball." "After all, we are tied for the lead."

Soon after, a rules official appears and examines the two #4 Titlist golf balls. He then looks up at Sven and Ole and says, "Well, which one of you would be playing the orange ball?"

True story:
I go to a walk in clinic, where the pretty Asian doctor tells me to unclothe and put the cloth rob on, handing it to me.
Well, I take off my cloths, unfold the rob to find out, it's actually just a big sqaure cloth...
Standing there naked, not sure what to do, there's a soft knock on the door, and the doctor re-enters.
At that moment, I decided to own it; I turned to her, arms at my side, in all my nude, hairy fatness, and proclaimed with a cheesy smile, "it wasn't a robe".
She was more embarrassed than I.

I went to college in Kentucky, and there was this old econ professor who was talking about when he relocated to Kentucky for his job. He was in front of class (intro micro), and talking about some crazy stuff he had heard about Kentucky and Appalachia. So he goes on: "I heard that they have sex with cows and horses and sheep out there. I've even heard some stories where they have had sex with goats, and occasionally pigs too -- both domestic and ferrel. And even though it breaks your heart, people around here have been known to commonly have sex with dogs and cats. Then this one time a person told me that it has been told that in certain parts people have sex with chickens."

At this point, a kid in the back of the room yells out rather shocked, chiiiiiiiikens???

You see, some people just have different values.

A guy gets home early from work and hears strange noises coming from the bedroom. He rushes upstairs to find his wife naked on the bed, sweating and panting.

"What's up?" he asks.

"I'm having a heart attack!" cries the woman.

He rushes downstairs to grab the phone, but just as he's dialing, his four-year-old son comes up and says, "Daddy! Daddy! Uncle Ted's hiding in your closet, and he's got no clothes on!"

He slams the phone down and storms upstairs into the bedroom, past his screaming wife. He rips open the closet door. Sure enough, there is his brother, totally naked, cowering on the floor.

"You bastard," says the husband. "My wife is having a heart attack, and you're running around with no clothes on scaring the kids!"

The New Yorker drinks his beer and suddenly throws his glass in the air, pulls out a gun and shoots the glass to pieces. He says "In New York our glasses are so cheap that we don't need to drink from the same one twice".

The Canadian drinks his beer, throws his glass into the air, pulls out his gun and shoots the glass to pieces. He says "In Canada we have so much sand to make the glasses that we don't need to drink out of the same glass twice".

The Floridian picks up his beer and drinks it, throws his glass into the air, pulls out his gun and shoots the New Yorker and the Canadian.

He says "In Florida we have so many New Yorkers and Canadians that we don't need to drink with the same ones twice".

A bright young fresh-out-of-school auditor joined the IRS, excited to begin tracking down high-powered offenders. He was a bit dismayed when his assignment was to audit a Rabbi. Looking over the books, the taxes were pretty straight forward, and the Rabbi was clearly very frugal, so he thought he'd make his day interesting by having a little fun at the Rabbi's expense.

"Rabbi," he said, "I noticed that you buy a lot of candles." "Yes," answered the Rabbi. "Well, Rabbi, what do you do with the candle drippings?" he asked. "A good question," noted the Rabbi. "We actually save them up and when we have enough, we send them back to the candle maker. And every now and then,they send us a free box of candles." "Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question actually had a practical answer.

"Rabbi, what about all these matzo purchases? What do you do with the crumbs from the matzo?" "Ah, yes," replied the Rabbi calmly, "we actually collect up all the crumbs from the matzo and when we have enough, we send them in a box back to the manufacturer and every now and then, they send a box of matzo balls." "Oh," replied the auditor, thinking hard how to fluster the Rabbi.

"Well, Rabbi," he went on, "what do you do with all the foreskins from the circumcisions?" "Here too, we do not waste," answered the Rabbi. "What we do is save up all the foreskins, and when we have enough we send them to the I.R.S."

"The I.R.S.?," questioned the auditor in disbelief. "Ahh, yes," replied the Rabbi, " the I.R.S. ...and about once a year, they send us a little prick like you."

A young ventriloquist is touring the clubs and stops to entertain at a bar in a small town.

He's going through his usual run of stupid blonde jokes when a large blonde woman in the fourth row stands on her chair and says, "I've heard just about enough of your denigrating blonde jokes! What makes you think you can stereotype women that way? What does a person's physical attributes have to do with their worth as a human being?"

The ventriloquist looks on in amazement.

"It's guys like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in my community," she continued,
"and of reaching my full potential as a person because you and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination
against not only blondes but women at large... all in the name of humor."

Flustered, the ventriloquist begins to apologize.

The blonde interjects, "You stay out of this, mister. I'm talking to that little guy on your knee!"

There was a blonde woman who was having financial troubles so she decided to kidnap a child and demand a ransom. She went to a local park, grabbed a little boy, took him behind a tree and wrote this note: I have kidnapped your child. Leave $10,000 in a plain brown bag behind the big oak tree in the park tomorrow at 7 A.M. Signed, The Blonde. She pinned the note inside the little boy's jacket and told him to go straight home. The next morning, she returned to the park to find the $10,000 in a brown bag behind the big oak tree, just as she had instructed. Inside the bag was the following note.... Here is your money. I cannot believe that one blonde would do this to another!

A defendant was on trial for murder in Oklahoma. There was strong evidence indicating guilt, but there was no corpse.

In the defense’s closing statement the lawyer, knowing that his client would probably be convicted, resorted to a trick.

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all," the lawyer said as he looked at his watch. "Within one minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this courtroom."

He looked toward the courtroom door. The jurors, somewhat stunned, all looked on eagerly. A minute passed. Nothing happened.

Finally the lawyer said, "Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I, therefore, put it to you that there is reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed and insist that you return a verdict of not guilty."

The jury, clearly confused, retired to deliberate. A few minutes later, the jury returned and pronounced a verdict of guilty.

"But how?" inquired the lawyer. "You must have had some doubt; I saw all of you stare at the door."

Answered the jury foreman: "Oh, we did look. But your client didn’t."

An older couple went to a sex therapist's office. The doctor asked, "What can I do for you?"

The man said, "Will you watch us have sexual intercourse?" The doctor looked puzzled, but agreed. The doctor examined them and then directed them to disrobe and go at it.

When the couple finished, the doctor reexamined them and, upon completion, advised the couple, "There's nothing wrong with the way you have intercourse." He then charged them $32.

This happened several weeks in a row. The couple would make an appointment, have intercourse with no apparent problems other than the lack of vigor which is to be expected with the elderly, get dressed, pay the doctor, and then leave.

Finally after almost two months of this routine, the doctor asked, "Just exactly what are you trying to find out?"

The old man said, "Oh, we're not trying to find out anything. She's married and we can't go to her house. I'm married, so we can't go to my house. The Holiday Inn charges $60. The Hilton charges $78. We do it here for $32 and I get $28 back from Medicare."

Congratulations theLawlCat
The random number generator selected #31 as the winning post.

Type of wood......I don't know.
I know it is a variety of Oregon Oak that has spalted.
Most likely white oak. Kind of weird in a good way.

NO ChoP!

I sent a PM to the winner.
We will give a few days waiting for a response.
If I don't hear anything by Tuesday afternoon, then there will be a new drawing.

Thank You to everyone who entered.
Those of you who guessed some sort of oak, good guess. This wasn't an easy one.

Those of you who posted jokes, thank you.
I really enjoyed most of them.

Congrats lawlcat. And for what it is worth, if he doesn't answer, I think cclin (charles) should get it as he had the posts both before and after #31.

thanks, Karring. I think new drawing is more fair if lawlcat is not response. I enter this contest just for fun:biggrin:

Yeah, you're right. I was just highlighting your almost good luck (or bad luck) -- depending upon how one looks at it ;)

I'm sure the winner will step forward.

Well..... the Lawlcat hasn't been around for about a week.
I tried sending a PM and no response and I am unable to send an email because they are not set up to receive emails.

So......we will try again with another drawing.
The new winner is post #92. Congratulations DaveB.
If that is you, send me a PM with your first and last name.
Make sure you are registered in the web store so I can post your store credit.

06-12-2013, 05:54 PM
No hard feelings though congrats to #92

I was on the phone with Dave and he was willing to give thelawlcat more time.
Then I got a PM from the cat.
So......theLawlcat still wins the $100 store credit prize.
and Dave gets a block of stabilized Bog Oak as 2nd place for being so cool about everything.

Kewl! Timing was a almost bizare, glad it worked out all the way around. Many thanks Mark.

First of all, everyone is really nice here and this is a great place. I really want to apologize for being absent for the last week, very busy and I honestly didn't think I had any chance of winning so it went to the back of my mind.

But I absolutely insist on splitting the prize money with Dave, I would not feel good about myself at all otherwise.

Sorry about mixing things up with the contest but it looks like everything is going to work out well for both of the winners.

You did good on your first three handles. I am looking forward to seeing what you do next.
So don't forget to post photos of the handles you do with the prize wood.

Got some cool looking walnut with the prize money. Still have enough for another handle. Thanks Mark for putting on these contests.
