We had a chance to sit down with the winner of our Stanley Sweetheart Hand Tool Sweepstakes, Jan Tankersley, and ask her a few questions. In our recent giveaway, Jan won three Stanley Sweetheart planes: the No. 60-1/2 Low Angle Block Plane, the No. 4 Smooth Plane and the No. 62 Low Angle Jack Plane, as well as a Set of 8 of the new edition Stanley Sweetheart Socket Chisels AND Highland’s own European Workbench. Here’s what she had to say:
On entering the Stanley Sweetheart Giveaway, and her own woodworking:
“I have always wanted to get into woodworking. However, I do not have a shop of my own. Last year I bought a couple of chisels for my brother, who is a woodworker, and I signed up for your newsletter. Earlier this year I saw you had this contest. I figured I was dreaming, but I thought about how great it would be if I could win that prize.”
“My ultimate dream is to have a shop of my own where I can do woodworking and pottery.”
On winning the giveaway, and her plans for the prize:
“I was very, very excited when I won. I’ve been trying to make up my mind if I’m going to keep the prize completely for myself or let my brother have it. For now since I don’t have my own shop, I’ll let my brother use the tools, but if I ever get my own shop going, I may want them back. Who knows what that might bring about!”
Thanks to everyone who entered the Stanley Sweetheart Giveaway, and to Jan Tankersley for the interview and pictures.
