A tie equates to our next challenge!

It will have to be a collaboration between two members. The first pair that are collaborating together are the two winners of this one, and together they not only decide the next challenge, but pair up those that want to participate.

Congratulations Damon (@Woodworking Vet). An outstanding piece and well deserved win.

Congratulations also to Barb for her superb entry, I think this was the closest voting yet for one of the challenges.

Thank you to everyone who participated either with a project, or with commentary, I really enjoyed seeing the differing enhancements.

The ball is now in Damon's hands, looking forward to what he decides to challenge us with next.

Congrats @Woodworking Vet !

It's a very well deserved win with an exquisite piece Damon, and up against some very tough competition I might add! If you have some time, I'm sure all of us would appreciate a few additional comments on the techniquite to both turn the piece as well as the finishing process.

It's great to see how everyone keeps upping their game for these contests and I, for one, feel as if I'm getting better because of you all. Thank you!

What's next Damon? :ponder:

Congratulations @Woodworking Vet !!!!! Exquisite work. Damon and Tim’s work look like they are twins because of the same finish characteristics and patina. What a tight score till the end between Barb and Damon.

That's all up to you! Each challenge has been about a month in duration, more or less, and must involve turning something. Other than that, it is really wide open. I think there is a sticky listing all the past challenges, and the first post usually has the rules listed. The hard part for me (particularly as we complete more and more challenges) is coming up with a challenge that is new and will attract the most participants.

If you need ideas, here is a thread from January where many ideas for future challenges were put forth. https://woodbarter.com/threads/next-turning-challenge.44332/

Congrats Damon! That's a well deserved win. :) I'm out of town and finally got somewhere that I have a signal and was able to check.
