Project of the Week for March 20, 2018

Nominations are open for this week’s Project of the Week (PotW). 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” badge on the forums, a prize from Bar and Hannah, and a piece of the Tiangong 1 space station (via airdrop; time and location of delivery TBD).

Nominations close no earlier than Saturday, voting (if needed) Sunday & Monday, announcement Tuesday. We’ll keep it to one PotW each week for now; hopefully someday we’ll have so many wonderful projects we’ll have to go with Projects of the Week. 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 both the Maslow newsletter and Made on Maslow 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 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.

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

With no nominations from the community, I’m going to nominate one and grab a couple of randomly selected projects featured in the past. So here’s this week’s poll:

  • ChuckC’s Workshop Stool
  • Bryan_Pollock’s Standing desk
  • Onelonedork’s keyboard cart

ChuckC’s Workshop Stool

Since we are including projects from previous weeks when there are not enough new projects, should we be including all previous nominations?

Perhaps when there are 2 (or 3) or more projects in a week we can vote on just the new projects, and when that is not the case, open it up to previously nominated projects like the Barky bowl?

Yes, I have been adding the non-winning past nominees to my spreadsheet. So far, none have been randomly selected, partly because the previous two weeks I didn’t need to fill in any past projects, and also because they are outnumbered by past projects that have been featured in the newsletter…
