Sorry everyone, The entry fee was that you had to be in The great Pen trade that Tim got started around many days ago.
Here how this 391Challenge got all started.
Stewart made a comment in “You might be a LumberJock if” and it was as number 391 in that blog series.
Someone stated that this log will be forever known as #391
I asked Tin to send me the pen trade first so that I could put 19 pen blanks in. One for each member of the pen trade. I asked everyone to make the pen and we’d post a challenge on LumberJocks.
So if you got one of the blanks, then make your pen and post a project entry telling any difficulties that you experienced, How easy or how hard it was. Post pictures of the blank before and after if you have a before picture.
We don’t have any SawStop saws for the winner, But I’ll send a piece of the log to you, for you to do what you wish. (If you win the big challenge) Post 391challenge (no spaces) in the title somewhere and post a tag of 391challenge (no spaces) in the tags so that we can find the entries. And then lets say get your entry done by July 4, 2009 we will let the members of LumberJocks vote on the winner at that time.
If anyone else wants to post a prize to be given to the first, second or last place
The rules might change at any time if we deem it necessary.
I know some have already made their pen, I haven’t even started mine. There was also a 391BChallenge blank in the pen blanks. So also make your 391Bchallenge pen and post it like the 391 but label it as 391BChallenge.
This is an informal challenge. It’s had a OK by Martin even though it’s not open to all LumberJocks.
So let me throw this challenge to everyone who makes pens Make your best entry and post it as 391XChallenge as an extra entry. And we’ll vote on them also. That way everyone can get involved and we’ll see if we can get some prizes for the high vote getter’s.
