It was more that it was the first at hand than it was particularly chosen. :)

I’m hoping to have my reply up tomorrow if I can make it home before dark.

I don’t recall who else was planning to participate, but if you fellows are waiting on me, I’d say go on ahead without me and I’ll jump in at a later date. Too much on my plate right now.

The "storm of the century" is upon us this weekend, but I'll try to get one banged out by Tuesday.

Nothing too crazy. A simple 45⁰ downward cut to the left followed by a draw cut starting from roughly 6" away.

When should I post the next challenge? Two weeks is Tuesday, or do you want to this weekend?
