MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!


You asked for it, you got it.  We are doubling the fun!  A double header!

Announcing a new Challenge & Trade to celebrate reaching 6000 members.  Ladies and gentlemen, YOU are the reason Woodturners Resource exists.  Since we have reached this incredible count we want to celebrate by having another C&T.

This trade is open to all members, even new ones.


Here is how it works:
     Post in this thread if you want to participate, or you can wait until after you have completed your piece.
     Turn your piece and take a picture of it to post in the gallery at the designated time.
     Post again that you have completed your piece, and get it boxed.
     Names will be put into random.com to assign with whom you will trade your piece.
     This is a partner trade, so after the deadline I will post the pairings in this thread. 
     PM your mailing address to your trade partner.
     Get your package into the mail and then sit back and wait for a package to arrive at your house.

We have a lot of new members, so we are going turn something basic.
Your Challenge is to turn a BOWL:  5-10" in diameter;  At least 2" deep
Brownie points for: Natural edge, Thin Walls, Turned embellishments (as opposed to Pierced), Angel wings. . .
So, look at the specifications, turn your bowl, and let the Trading begin.

C&T Gallery will open:                                  Thursday, 8/08/13
Deadline to have photos in the Gallery:           Monday, 8/12/13, 9am PDT
Partners to be announced by:                       Tuesday, 8/13/13
Piece in the mail no later than:                      Tuesday, 8/20/13


For those of you who are new to our C&T's,  It is a Challenge to create a piece, to the best of your abilities, that meets the specifications given, & once completed, you will Trade it to another participant either in a Round Robin, where A sends to B, B sends to C, C sends to D...  or you have a Partner to send your piece, and your partner will send you their piece.  Trade assignments are given after pieces are completed and all photos posted.  If you haven’t posted a picture of your completed piece by the deadline, you will not be eligible for a trade.

The timing allows about 4 weeks to give people time to learn and practice if need be.      You can post in this thread as soon as your piece is done, but don't post any pictures until the challenge gallery opens.  Remember, No Photo, No Trade. Pictures need to be clear and less than 75KB to post in the gallery.  If you haven’t already registered in the gallery, do so using the same User Name as in the forum.  It uses different software, so it is necessary to register and sign in separately.

This trade will be a Partner trade.  I will use Random.org to select the trades on Monday, Aug 12.  I will then post the pairings in this thread, and you need to PM your address to your partner. Packages should be postmarked by Tuesday, Aug 20.

OK!  Now who is going to sign up to try this?   Are you in?  It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned turner or a relative newbie.  All we ask is that you make a serious effort to do your best.  If you are in, indicate whether you are willing to spend the little extra to ship outside the country if any of our Canadian or International members participate.

    
Everybody!  Lets Turn and Trade!!

Since I haven't used up all of the wood from the last couple of wood swaps I'll go this time with the C&T.  So count me in and I too can ship anywhere.
