It had to happen, as the stage was set at the Woodworking in America conference in St Charles: Three women, all chasing the title of “Fastest Borer”. I won’t give away the ending – you will have to watch the video to learn who won.
Christopher Schwarz, Editor of Popular Woodworking and Woodworking magazines, introduced the contestants: Megan Fitzpatrick, Managing Editor of Popular Woodworking magazine; Heather Griffin, with the conference organizing group for FW Media; and Kari Hultman, The Village Carpenter. Each contestant had to bore a 3/4″ hole in a plank using a brace and bit setup.
I screwed up the exposure in part of the video – my bad! But I hope you enjoy the festivities.
