So much bad weather here in the UK I didn't get near the garage or my shed. I am really glad I didn't get to make anything as the entries are exceptional. Well done to everyone.

I thoroughly enjoyed looking over these Ho' Made Masterpieces....great fun !  The amount of ingenuity, workmanship and in lots of cases pure Artistic Genius evident on these builds, is nothing short of phenomenal. Good Luck to all participants...this was a tough call to make.

After spending a great deal of time carefully looking over each entrant, and judging them all on the same criteria which included the Artistic, Practical and Functional nature of each one, (as best I could without actually hearing or doing a closer examination),  I cast my ballot for Simon Stanbridge's Resonator Bukey, "Wok Around the Clock." Thank you for this...it was a real treat. Best wishes for you and yours this New Year.
