Project of the Week / Community Gardener for August 15, 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 and a weekend stay featuring deluxe accommodations at @Keith’s house.

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. 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 ( 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.


I nominate this one which could slip through the cracks:


Is this a valid one?


Yep. Since it’s in the Community Garden, it will be part of the CG poll. Thanks for nominating!

I like the clean lines of this one:

Simple project, but very nicely executed imho.

The community agreed with Bar and went for ScrumdyBum’s Random Projects. Sorry, @ScrumdyBum, we don’t have a lifetime achievement badge, so you’ll have to settle with Project of the Week. In the Community Garden, the voters were all over the Maslow CNC with Panel Saw mod by John Montani. Keep showing off your projects, folks!


We make a hall of fame and put scrumdybum in it :wink:
