Flash! Contest extended
Many forum members did not know that there is a contest running. The rules are simple: build a plaque which is 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" x 3/4" thick from either Ash, African Mahogany or Lyptus. The top edge needs a roundover and the bottom needs a cove cut to create a shadow line. Other than that the sky is the limit. There are prizes for the best design, but you can also win a prize by discussing the diferences in the way the woods are machined. You must build your own plaque and submit a photo of it to enter. These woods are available from many sources but our member and friend Keith at The Woodworkers Source is offering a special project pack with enough wood to make 3 plaques of each type of wood.
To be fair to all forum members this contest has been extended until August 31st, 2009
. There are nine prizes, the least of which is a $25 gift certificate for Oak Park, the home of The Router Workshop. I bought one of the project packs and split it with Rob (SNRGRAILROAD) and James (JW2170). So the three of us will each be submitting 3 entries. Everyone has a very good chance to win, why not enter? Unless of course you would prefer that the three of us split all the prizes...
