UPDATE: We Have a Winner

Congratulations to John Beck, creator of Stool 101! He’s won this “round” of voting in the stool contest.

Tonight we’ll have a separate vote during the reception which will decide the winners of the tool packages and other prizes. Come to Practical Art at 7:00 pm (late is okay, come before 8:00 pm to participate in the live vote) tonight.

Come See The Exhibit In Phoenix

The 38 entries in this woodworking contest are made by Arizona woodworkers who have spent months creating custom wood sitting stools of all shapes and sizes. On November 14, we’re having a maker’s reception at Practical Art in downtown Phoenix. We’d like to award them some prizes, but need your help deciding.

We will have a voting system in place that night – anyone who comes can check out the entries and cast their votes for their three favorites. We’ll award prize packages of woodworking tools based on that vote.

But if you can’t come that night, we’ve set up this separate poll just for you. The winner here will get ag. We’re having a different vote Friday night for the other prizes. Be mindful of what you see here, we’re only giving you three votes and no more. Pretty simple, right? You get three pictures of each project to help form your opinion, so click ’em to zoom.

Results display on the right.

To cast your vote for a stool, send a text message. Here’s how:

  1. Pick a stool to vote for.
  2. Send a text message to 22333 with the stool code below each picture (ex: STOOL305)
  3. Send one text message for each stool you choose
  4. Repeat until you’ve voted for your three favorites!
  5. This voting closes at Noon November 14, 2014 (at the reception, different voting takes place starting at 7:00 pm)

Spread the joy, people . . . yes you get three votes, but you may only vote once per stool.

Go ahead and share your thoughts in the comments at the bottom, too.
