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.
