Hey guys, Shane and Aaron here from the Baileigh woodworking team. We are almost ready to launch our next Baileigh woodworking giveaway. We are thinking we would like to have some sort of “woodworking” competition of some sort. We want to make it fair to the beginners in their basements as well as the veterans with the big shops and nice tools.


We are starting this thread to get some ideas rollin’ here.

Some ideas we are kicking around:

Build or duplicate a specific item?
Use the most types of wood in a project this xxxx size?
Build a unique item out of wood without any mechanical fasteners?
Best woodworking project utilizing the Baileigh logo?
Best wood hinge?
Best cabinet design?
Best project of something not normally made from wood (i.e. car motor, gun replica, etc….)

Please respond in this thread with some good ideas for our next contest. Please remember we want to cater to the majority and make it somewhat fair for all who want to play.

Perhaps a jig building contest.
If not that, then whoever makes post #4 on this thread wins!!!

A three way split of all the prizes going to Joe, Randy, and myself because we all responded unselfishly ;-)

How about something different,something that challenges a woodworker esthetically oppose to a choice of joinery,etc. like a table, or a cabinet, display case made to look vintage or distressed,something like pictures bellow:

Best use of a shipping pallet. You can just put the pize on a pallet and ship it to me. I am sure that I will be suitably unspired to create something awesome!

A contest which shows why Baileigh tool are superior, thereby justifying the premium price.

I would just like to see a machine sent to a member… One who LJ as whole votes on. That member then does a comparison to another in class machine with which he/she has significant experience.

We trust our senior members.

We also realize that you support this site, although we don’t know to what degree.

It could put to bed the certain theories about price point/quality/features as compared to competitors.

widdle by jove I think you’ve got something there. Truth over marketing since folks here are looking for good info for decision making.

Okay, here’s my artsy-fartsy idea: You give us an image, picture or word. Contest entrants make something out of wood that represents the image or word. Then it’s open to interpretation. Only rule is that the primary material be wood.

I like the ” make anything form X bf of material ” Idea. It will allow the contestants to make a wide variety of different projects from their imaginations.

People aren’t just here for “truth over marketing” some of us come on here to be inspired by the ideas of others, these guys are trying to get an idea going from the community and reward the best idea with a piece of their equipment, not quite sure why all the bad nature against what seems to be a genuine idea for a giveaway. I see no benefit other then a small bit of marketing to their already base marketing crowd anyway…

Anyways, I like Sandra’s idea, you could take something from the 4 pics 1 word app and devise it in such a way from the pictures to have it be an open ended woodworking interpretation.
