Project of the Week / Community Gardener for June 22, 2018

Special note: The next two competitions will be on odd schedules. This one will be finalized on Friday, June 22. The next one will be finalized on Wednesday, July 4. After that we will return to a normal schedule as outlined in the boilerplate text below.

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…“hey, does anybody ever read these, anyway?”, from your competition organizer.

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.


Rocking Horse Cut. I love this rocking horse.


I nominate these cabinets too:


And this amazing sign:


As much as I love plugging my own stuff, I don’t think I stand a chance against the sign. That thing is beautiful!

Also, it’s just the one cabinet, if that changes people’s vote.


I find I can never predict what the community is going to favor with their votes, and since I have no clue this week which is going to win, perhaps I’m right for a change! :wink: As always, two polls, so be sure to scroll down.

I was right! ScrumdyBum’s Rocking Horse barely (one vote) edged out Oscar_Solano’s PVC and Aluminum Sign to win PotW. Meanwhile, the Bolt Together Maslow Frame edged out (again by one vote) the Growth Ruler. So many great projects to choose from. Congratulations, all!
