Okay, so I have thought about it. I think giving 2 clamps to one winner and a new pony band clamp to the other would be the best idea. So here’s the band clamp. I will pick randomly who gets what.

Photobucket

Hopefully that will instigate some more entries.

Really now. Who thinks of a contest and comes up with cross dressing as an answer. What’s this got to do with woodworking? By definition it’s not kid friendly and we’ve had the kid friendly conversation before so don’t go there. I can think of a half dozen other things off hand to contest besides cross dressing aptitude.

Best dovetail.
Best finish.
Best color.
Best wooden hinge.
Best hand plane shaving.
Best jig.
etc.

At least you can honestly concede that this is not for everyone and in the name of inclusiveness pick something else. Right? Right.

No sense of humor? I’m the one that has a well developed sense of humor. Along with a sense of humor should come a sense of what is not humor. Think about it. Notice, none of you addressed the substance of my remarks, just attacked me. Typical of people without a real argument to support their position. If you believe that a cross dressing contest on a woodworking site is a good idea, make the case. Otherwise, stay out of the discussion.

The contest isn’t about simply cross dressing. The contest is to dress up as the opposite sex, but look like a lumber jock. Notice how grizz has on a tool belt. The rules were simple.

“Men, you put your best dresses on and make up, as well as your WOODWORKING GEAR. The idea is to see who makes the best female jock.
Ladies, you put your coveralls on, a hat, and nail bags and show us boys how a real man should dress.”

Rules are simple. You have to dress up as a woodworker of the opposite sex. Attire has to be appropriate as there are minors here.

I swear there is always someone that has to try to ruin the fun. I made the contest woodworking related by saying you have to dress up wearing woodworking gear. You could put on a wig and wear your normal day to day attire and enter. If this contest was offensive in any manner and not in simple fun Martin would have pulled it when I first posted it. If you want to be a moderator start your own site. Until then let Martin handle that job. You don’t always have to start trouble when it’s easiest to simply walk away.

kol,

I read the rules and after rereading my first comment, I think it might have sounded a little harsh as it regards you and I apologize for that. But, I think you’re missing the point. Martin has the right to miss these things as well as catch them. It doesn’t make it right when someone agrees with you. Again, you only complain about me ruining the fun but you fail to make a case for a cross dressing contest “The contest isn’t about simply cross dressing. The contest is to dress up as the opposite sex”. I maintain that cross dressing is not appropriate for minors by definition. I maintain that there’s plenty of fun to be had in other ways. And, by the way, we are all moderators of this site by our comments and postings and any other contributions. Telling me to look the other way is how you’re trying to moderate the site isn’t it?

Lighten up. there’s a difference between being attacked as you put it and kind hearted razzing as I think most of us would put it.

The great thing about all these subjects posted is that there is something for everyone. Find the one you like an engage. As to the one’s you don’t like…don’t respond. I find this works for me and keeps my bloodpressure in check.

In this world of underwear bombers and global warming there’s much more important things to get one’s panties in a wad over. JMHO

If dressing up as a woman for a contest is innappropriate or is somehow going to effect your children then cancel Halloween. Until then, I think as a parent you can ensure that your child knows it’s a contest and for fun, so they don’t get confused and want to be something they aren’t meant to be when they grow up. Moderate what your kids see if you think this is innappropriate, and then remember this when your son wants to be a cheerleader for halloween.
Off to work I go.

JAG, my butt looks big no matter what I wear. The reason I picked this to complain about is that Ms DebbieP put it in the newsletter and brought it to my attention under a seemingly innocent heading. Shame on her too. When Griz posted his crazy pic in the projects, I let it go as just weirdness. So, I’m light enough. I think we have to ask ourselves sometimes whether we’re part of the problem or not when we fail to point out the error of someones ways.

kol, I said let’s not argue about how to supervise children on this site and stick to argueing “why do this?”. Can’t you make a case for why this is a good idea? I haven’t seen anything that recommends a crossdressing contest yet. If you can’t do that, how about telling me why a contest for best dovetail or one of my other suggestions wouldn’t do just as well and not run the risk of being offensive?

The problem is that there is to diverse of a group of woodworkers to have a “best build off” contest. I can hand cut dovetails better then a lot of people, and not as good as others. So to have a contest based off of that is difficult unless I have a prize for each skill level. I also believe that this site has it’s winners, based off of popularity more then quality or design.
Not everyone can afford time and materials to build a project. If you haven’t noticed I’ve held contests in the past as well. This isn’t my first one, and it won’t be my last. Martin is holding a contest for building something, as is fine woodworking magazine and numerous others. It’s my intention to come up with unique ways of giving away a prize that I personally paid for. You have to understand that I’m not financially capable of donating these things on a regular basis, but I feel inclined to do so to benefit someone. This contest is my way of thinking out of the box. I wasn’t thinking about it being innappropriate because it isn’t, unless you are a homophobe and have that fear. This is meant to be innocent, all in good fun, to give away a woodworking related prize. To be different from everyone else.
This site has a coffee lounge for humor and things that aren’t related to woodworking. I tried to respect the site and post this in that section, but I also tried to keep it related to woodworking in some fashion.
I really don’t see that this contest is a problem, other then the fact that someone feels the desire to make it that way. So there you have it. I chose to do this contest because it’s different then just building something. We are all woodworkers and if we have the time to enter a build off contest there are contests with prizes that far exceed mine. It’s just a random venture meant to be fun. Thanks for ruining it.

Yikes!!! Let’s all lighten up here!
If you don’t like the contest, don’t enter… but please chuckle at the idea!
It’s not “cross dressing”... it really is just a joke and a way to get a few laughs in a very crazy world.
Lets not turn it into something else.
Come on everyone… life is too short!

The only reason I’m not entering is that I’m a size 10 and my wife is a size 6. I can’t fit into any of her dresses, and to go out and buy something that looks nice on me would cost more than the prizes are worth.

Come to think of it, I do have a rather large female cousin whose clothes would probably fit me, but she has terrible fashion sense. I wouldn’t be caught dead in one of her frumpy frocks.

kol, your good intentions don’t make it right. My objections don’t make me a homophobe either. So far we have on your side:

1) I meant well, therefore; it’s ok.
2) I wanted to be different so it’s ok.

Sorry kol, I don’t think those are reasons that a cross dressing contest is a good idea or at least they are weak reasons. Here’s an idea if you just want to benefit someone without offending anyone. To give everyone an equal chance and not be influenced by popularity (see, I think I’d have a hard time winning any of your contests), just draw a name at random. Why all the grief anyway? Surely you can give me the benefit of the doubt and concede that I’m sincere and not just trying to ruin it for everyone? I don’t think you are trying to offend anyone with your contest because I give you the benefit of the doubt. I think you just didn’t think about anyone being offended by the contest. I’m just saying I’m offended by cross dressing contests at a woodworking site when there are so many ways to avoid it and not offend anyone.
