Project of the Week / Community Gardener for June 6, 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 @slomobile’s plans for a Maslow frame made completely out of chain.

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.

Time for the weekly polls (maybe a little past time, really, so vote quickly, before they close!) As always, there are two polls, so scroll down.

was really though to decide, I wanted to vote for all 3.


Thanks for the nomination! I think that bee hive is going to be hard to beat, picked a tough week!


Voting for the two categories had opposite outcomes. In the Project of the Week, ScrumdyBum’s Colorado Top Bar Beehive ran away with the prize. Meanwhile in the Community Gardener poll, we ended up with a tie between the Sled with Center Alignment Jig and the Working Desk. I loved Gero’s comment that he wanted to vote for all three. Well said! Great job, all!
