I would like to nominate Dan (danmart77) for the 2019 Golden Mallet award. Dan has been the guest instructor for multiple workshops, veneer, coloring, windsor chairs, dovetail x 2, marking gauges, and more. Plus all of his threads and posts have been educational and Dan is always willing to help.

+1 on Flying Ron. And ditto what Charlie said. If it hadn't been for the unique situation and Ron's extraordinary effort, I would have strongly concurred w/ Phil's nomination of Dan. Tough choices here.

I would like to nominate Flying Ron. This website wouldn't have survived without what he has accomplished during the past few months and continues to do.
I would concur except Ron is not eligible as he is a member of the Board of Directors

Well shucks! I forgot about the BOD issue. :confused: But at least Ron knows how much we appreciate what he did for all of us. Guess we'll start w/ a clean slate on Monday. ;)

I think Berta is not eligible this year as a Board Member and I'm not sure if Chuck ever officially became a member (I could be wrong, Berta can correct me if so). Both have contributed substantially to our Outreach Program so would be likely candidates. As Berta is not running for re-election this year, she will definitely be eligible next year.

I would like to nominate Graywolf (Richard Moore) his commitment to the site and continued participation teaching people the ways of hand tools and willingness to jump in and help answer a question - he represents the goals and spirit of NCWW!

Since Chuck is eligible then I second that nomination. Chuck has been to more Outreach Events than most of us combined and hauled the trailer there many times.

I want to vote for every one of them. The Golden Mallet Award is a great honor, and to have so many very deserving members illustrates what a great job NCWW does in promoting woodworking skills and knowledge. My hat is off to every one of you who are nominated, and to some others who probably should have been!

I should have added with the nomination of SkyMaster, he has quietly worked behind the scenes for several years, building all the burial urns for our Urns For Veterans Project. Not only did he procure all the lumber, machine all the parts, and assemble them, he delivered many, sometimes travelling many miles to deliver an urn when a funeral director called and needed it immediately. I personally know he also paid from his own pocket, to ship some by overnight mail. In most cases, only JackLeg and I knew about all his efforts, and this on top of the tragedy's that have struck him and his family. This nomination is based on what he has done to earn the Golden Mallet Award nomination.
