Project of the Week / Community Gardener for July 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 an immediate “Hurrah” from @Jayster.

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 @Jose_Miguel_Giraldez’s “My son’s bed” for project of the week!


While not completely original the finishing of it was: Mountains Jewelry Rack

Ugh, I just realized I missed arne2050’s Toybox with a Rabbit for the PotW. Discourse won’t let me change a poll after a very short time, so I can’t fix it. I’m going to save that one for next week. Apologies @arne2050!


It was a short poll period this week–sorry for those who didn’t get to vote–but the votes we got yielded clear winners. Strolling through the Community Garden, the Cat House was a clear favorite. For Project of the Week, Jose_Miguel_Giraldez’s My Son’s Bed took the prize. Great projects to choose from, keep 'em coming!
