    I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday. I have been given the go ahead to start the monthly challenge. Members will have the opportunity each month to present a project that fits the parameters of the monthly challenge. Because we are a diverse group of woodworkers I will try to come up with a challenge that con be done across many areas. The challenge could be a material, technique, etc... after the posting deadline there will be a poll and a winner of the month will be chosen for bragging rights :cool:

    Please post any questions here...I will have the first challenge posted shortly.

    Does it have to be a project completed within that month? Or can it be a project you have previously completed?

    I would say a recently completed project is acceptable if it fits the parameters.

    I will add that it should be something that hasn’t been previously posted.

    Happy to see this contest only because there is a project I've been wanting to do for over a year now. Maybe this will motivate my lazy ass!!! Probably will have to ponder on it for a while though.:lol2:

    I have an idea for a challenge.
    Make a wooden toy to give as a donation for a local charity. And they can be featured in the next calendar.
