C&T - Cube
Jun 19th, 2014 at 11:32am
 
MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!


I have had several requests, so it is time for us to have a C&T. 

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 post again that you have completed it.
     Take a picture of it, but don’t post in the gallery until the designated time.
     Get it boxed so it is ready to mail.
     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 by the mailing deadline and then sit back and wait for one to arrive at your house.

This one is a bit of a challenge.  We’ll go back and revisit another oldie/goldie, the Cube Challenge.  Here's the  deal.  You start with a cube.  It doesn't have to be one piece of wood, it can be a glue up.  For this challenge we'll say no larger than 5" x 5" x 5".  Once the cube is established your task is to turn a piece to trade that will be a challenge to you but will also leave some part of the cube so that it will be known that you used a cube to start with.  Feel free to look back in the Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register of the pieces that were turned for the last cube challenge.  If you participated, do not do the same thing you did last time.  Even though we will all start with a 3" to 5" cube, your final size will vary depending on how large your cube is and your design.  However, try to keep as much of the size as possible.  I expect to see edges, corners, points, etc. as evidence of the original cube being used.

A couple of  Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register also fit the specs.

This C&T is open to all members, even new ones.


Schedule:  You can begin to sign up on this thread anytime and continue to sign up until the dead-line.
C&T Gallery will open:                                  Wednesday, 7/16/14
Deadline to have photos in the Gallery:           Sunday, 7/20/14, 9am PDT
Partners to be announced:                           Sunday, 7/20/14
Piece in the mail no later than:                      Saturday, 7/26/14

So, get your name on the list and get to turning.  Enjoy the challenge and do your best, someone will be adding it to their Rogue's Gallery.  You should learn something, or do something, new in the process.  That is the challenge.  I look forward not only to see who is joining me in this challenge, but what everyone comes up with.  There are always some that will surprise us with their imagination and interpretation of the "rules."  Have fun and let the games begin.

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 Sunday, July 20.  I will then post the pairings in this thread, and you need to PM your address to your partner. Packages should be postmarked by Saturday, July 26.

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!!

That is the whole purpose of the C&T's.  Challenging your mental limitations, imagination, and abilities.

5" cube is the maximum size, it can be smaller.

Come on everyone let's get some more people in this.
There are over 6700 members, lets try to get more than a half dozen to join in.

As Ed says, 5" is the maximum.  The minimum is 3". 

Ed, where is your cube?
