    YIKES, I miscounted the votes on Appearance and in doing so announced the wrong 3rd place winner.

    I'm sorry sorry. I figured I'd better make it right rather than leave my mistake. So, I apologize to everyone for being a dunderhead.

    How the judging took place:

    The judges voted for their favs in each category (ingenuity, originality, appearance, build thread and overall result). The winner of each category got 5 points, the second place got 3 points and then 1 point for everyone else receiving a vote. The Scattesquire got the most points total. Followed closely by the Palletcaster and the CADocaster.

    I'll tell you one thing kids, ALL of those builds had a lot going for them. It was not easy trying to find something to make one rise to the top.

    Kudos to everybody involved.

    Great builds everyone and congratulations to the winners!

    Scatter Lee's thread was simply one of the most informative and downright entertaining I've ever seen.

    I am surprised, thankful and honored to be included in the top 3... Thanks to Paul and the panel of judges and all the other contestants for a fun month of building, creativity and innovation. It was fun trying to see what I could make instead of buy and throwing caution to the wind and trying new things.

    Thanks Again to all and congrats to Scatterlee.

    Congrats to Scatter and Big Mike
    I can't believe I made the top three
    There was a point I was going to back out
    Special thanks to Paul and the rest of the challengers
    This was great fun and all I can say is

    Congratulations to everyone who participated. I enjoyed every single build thread, and learned something from each of them.

    I hope that those who didn't finish in time, stick it out and keep posting their builds. I'm looking forward to seeing those finished up too.

    ps. Scatterlee, do us all a favor and don't use that money on tools or parts. I really enjoyed your ingenuity and use of low-tech tools. Spend it on beer.

    Congrats ScatterMan! Hell of a job.
    Of course my disappointment at not winning is tempered by the fact that I get to keep my guitar. :D
