Default 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...

I guess the whole thing doesn't make sense to me. Especially this part.
piece of material that has a 1/4 round over profile routed on the two edge and two ends of the front face then the router bit is changed to the 1/4 Cove bit and route the cove profile on the two edges and two ends of the back face.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
