Project of the Week / Community Gardener for April 18, 2018

Nominations are open for this week’s Project of the Week (PotW) and Community Gardener (CG) awards. You can nominate simply by replying to this thread. Self-nominations are allowed.

The selected project will be highlighted in the Maslow newsletter. The user will receive a “Project of the Week” or “Community Gardener” badge on the forums, a cold hard tungsten carbide prize from Bar and Hannah, and a first-edition of @pillageTHENburn and @MeticulousMaynard’s secret bottom mount linkage system, just as soon as they solve some balance problems…

The approximate weekly schedule is: nominations close no earlier than Saturday, voting Sunday & Monday, announcement Tuesday. After nominations from the community have been made, I’ll post a poll for the community to pick a winner. If we don’t get enough nominations, I will randomly select projects from previous weeks’ nominations, the back issues of the Maslow newsletter, Made on Maslow, and of course the Community Garden website to appear in a poll of at least three projects. Projects that don’t win in a poll can be renominated on subsequent weeks. Any project can only win once, but any person can win multiple times.

What makes a PotW? It can be a project (old or new) made on a Maslow CNC that shows off the Maslow’s capabilities, or demonstrates a new way of using the Maslow, or just plain looks cool. There is also a Maslow Community Contributor of the Week for great contributions to the Maslow community, which is run by TheRiflesSpiral; nominations which better fit that award will be forwarded to him.

What makes a Community Gardener? It can be anyone who creates or contributes to a project on the Community Garden website ( 12). By posting to the CG, you make the project available to the community and you create the opportunity for other users to improve on your design. Vote however you like, but I hope to encourage collaborative projects.

Final note: like most things here on the forums, the community is what makes PotW/CG successful. Suggestions for improving the PotW/CG and volunteers to help run the thread are always welcome.

P.S. Last week was a bad week for nominations. I know the projects are out there, so please post your projects to the forums or the community garden, and please nominate!

I nominate the Somersault Middle School Slim Chair from @mlugo.


Those balancing issues are turning out to be quite a problem! Not to worry though, I’m sure we’ll sort it out. xD

I second @blurfl’s nomination, seeing schools making stuff via the Maslow is awesome!


Another student entry, @Dustcloud nominated @Maslonians207’s Alphahawk map. School Project - Map of the Country of “Alphahawk”


Time for a poll. This week’s PotW has a “learners” theme. 3 of the projects are from schools, and the other is a first cut from a new machine.

SO much more than that! Fame, a forum badge, and a bit of tungtsten carbide goodness from the Maslow store!


We’ll be sending you some router bits! (which is all the fame and fortune which fits in a small size USPS flat rate box) :grin:
