    I am not going to be able to make the convention this year but I am going to submit one of my slabs to the contest. Just have to make the time to get-ur-dun! I think my status will be more in line with participating and not competing.

    I was wondering about the projects submitted to the contest.

    "All project entries will be retained by LHR for demonstrations, trade shows & facility tours. They will also be posted on our community forum and may be used in our advertising."

    Will the projects ever be returned to the participants? Kept for a year or kept forever? If the projects are never returned, the entries will be limited to smaller, more trivial projects I would think. This point may need to be made clear. (I saw no reference to returning. Did I miss something?)

    These entries are to become part of our demonstration materials to show potential customers what can be done with the machine. A lot of what we take to shows is about 5 years old. These pieces have been ALL OVER the US and many are broken or they grew legs and walked away. We simply DO NOT have the staff to build these ourselves and need to replenish our supply.

    How many years has everyone been asking for a CarveWright Contest? We finally got approval and if you add up the prize winnings, it's a pretty hefty amount. Now, I'm thinking we should have spread out the prize money a little bit more. We could have just as easily gone straight to our customers and purchased the items we wanted. Whether we do this again in the future is going to largely depend upon the response. Frankly, I'm worried.

    First thanks Connie, I really like the contest idea and thanks for sponsoring it. For me the prize distribution as is was incentive to me to enter a more complex project. I read and understood that the projects would be kept by LHR. I'm building a clock nonetheless. This should be my best clock yet. When completed, this one would retail for about $500, in line with the contest's top prizes. But of course it will be LHR's win or not. Wait - everyone is a winner in this contest!

    Back to my project, wheels are nearly done. Pinions are being cut right now. I need to get more wood this afternoon!

    I can't enter as my machine is qwerky and needs a rebuild I can't afford.

    We need regular people's projects, too.

    LOL!
