Everyone who is taking up the 30 day build challenge from TSDC… this is the place to talk all your smack.

I’ll start off.

Your desk organizer is so ugly it entered an ugly contest and they told it “sorry no professionals”.

My desk organizer can beat up your desk organizer!

I’ve seen something as ugly as your desk organizer, but I had to pay admission first.

Your desk organizer would make the most wonderful kindling, but not much else.

You killed a tree to make that?

As a desk organizer, that thing makes a great paper bag

seriously. i entered my name in the contest.
I have to admit to being seriously offended when i listened to the details of the contest, and heard him say he was entering his boyscout troupe against us.
after hearing that, no way i will waste any of my time or wood.
don’t really care what the project is.

So JuniorJoiner, what your saying is that you are scared of competing against boy scouts? Its a waste of time and wood because you have no chance at beating them?

YES!! We are talking some SMACK now! :)

JuniorJoiner,
It’s taken me about 1 hour now to decide whether to post this or not, but I guess I’ll do it anyway…

Seriously, I’m shocked. The mission, maybe not the history, but the mission of the podcast is to get beginning woodworkers more comfortable with woodworking. Trying to get children involved has always been part of that. I’m truly surprised to hear that anyone would be offended by this.

Contest rules are in place for very specific reasons. If you’d like to discuss the finer points and the reasons for the rules then I invite you to please join me as a guest on the show. I’m absolutely willing to listen to opinions on how to make the next contest better.

I’m really just flabbergasted at the thought that someone would be offended by allowing groups of children to compete in a contest that is offering 14 prizes. I’ve never even heard of a woodworking build contest that offered that many prizes. That comes out to a little over 1 prize for every 3 contestants. And if I can assume I know which contestant you are, you were an early registrant and won a subscription to Woodcraft Magazine as long as you complete the project. Plus, you wouldn’t be competing against the Boy Scouts, they are beginners and you listed yourself as an Amateur.

In comparison, when you join a marathon or triathlon, are you offended by the many rules, or at the officials for allowing professional athletes to race also? So then you don’t race? Are you offended when you buy tickets to a raffle and someone right behind you bought twice as many tickets?

I guess I just don’t understand your logic here…

-Rick

JrJoiner, don’t mess with those boy scouts they have hunting and tracking skills to find you! Lighten up man, who cares about the prizes, the designing is the most fun.

Well I don’t want to pick on JuniorJointer. This is a thread for talking trash among all contestants. I would like to offend all of you equally. All of you who’s desk organizers look like they were designed my a drunken monkey as a practical joke to be played on other drunken monkeys. CHA HAAA!

your right, maybe i misunderstood. I took it that the contest was for other beginner to intermediate woodworkers as we find here on lumberjocks.
and yes, I do have a problem with comparing any project of mine to something made by children. I’m sure some of them are quite good, probably better than me. thats not the point.
as for rules or a race, if i signed up for a 10k and realized it was for children, no i wouldn’t run.

I meant no disrespect at all by what i posted, I just voiced my view.

as for prizes, i really respect what you are trying to do. and it is great that you are.

Spaids, sorry if what I posted hijacked some of your thread.
I read enough of your posts that i Know nothing is meant to offend.
keep up the great work.
