Production on a CD would be lfar ess costly and easier to distribute… and would save trees for more lumberjocking.

Certainly the nominees for all the contests should be in there. Then you can throw on several of the multimedia elements that have appeared.

great idea Dan…I would think a published book could be something that would make this an even moe uniqique place…assuming as the site owner this would need to go through Martin (which from my perspective is a good thing)...this has become a respected site for all its talent (not counting me!) and this could become a truly marketable book if done well…

your design expertise could make it a really nice book…and if it takes off it could be an annual addition…all the best designs and projects from the previous years…with plans and details on how to make them???

cool…

I’m thinking there are several options on a printing… CD idea fits in nicely as well. Everything will be digital anyway.
We could make a bunch of pdf files

It would be great if we could vote on items we want to include….maybe a set of plans or sketchups for each one selected….a few pics of the results…and maybe a quick write up by the builder as to difficult parts and shortcuts.

We could also add some of the great tips we see in here alot…..we could do voting by blog…and select items by subject…we could also ask for submissions from each subject and vote on those….would be a nice summary of the great stuff on this site…

Oh…and would be nice to have some of those great items we have favorited the most….every once in a while I senior moment and can’t find what I saw a while back and wanted to refer too…

Anyway…a few pennies from me there…
