Yes, it will be interesting to see who is first, what they come up with, how long it took, etc. I have made a few “napkin drawings” so far, but that has been it. I need to get going before Obi gets those 14 sticks together.

If I show mine first, nobody else will enter…

Maybe I should show mine first…. then everyone would enter. That’s what I get for building it out of OSB and MDF.

That’s awesome JP!

I can’t show even a peek at mine, not without a cat scan.

If I don’t get started soon it’s going to end up being a piece of plywood on top of a milk crate…

I want to make the table, but like everything else I’m really nervous about starting. I wish I was more like Todd, or Obi, or Karson, or . . . heck all y’all intimidate me.

I’ve just got to go to out to the shop and get started.

Hey Doc, think of it like this:
They’re sticks. If you leave them in their present condition, they remain sticks. As soon as you put a blade to them, then they become something else.

Show the picture to your wife, then she’ll want one.

If you mess anything up, burn it. No, wait… there’s always something smaller you can make.

I make 3/8” dowels out of anything that get’s smaller than an inch.
