Challenge and Trade
Feb 28th, 2017 at 6:21pm
 
Here is something we used to do a while back.  I'd like to try and bring it back again.
It's called a challenge and trade or C & T for short.
If you’ve participated before you can skip down to the challenge guidelines..
If your new to C & T’s, here’s how they work.
  Participants will turn a challenge piece within specifications.  After completion, post a picture of your creation in the "Turning Talk" section and in the Gallery labeled  "C&T Spring 2017".  The deadline for entries will be on April 1st.  The names of all the participants will be thrown into an electronic hat and randomized. We will then post the pairings in this thread. Once you know your trade partner, you will then be responsible for sending a PM for his or her address. Then simply ship the package and wait to receive your trade.  This is a “round-robin” type of trade, not a direct exchange.

   This is NOT a competition !  It is....
1. To expand your skills
2. To develop friendships across the WR community.
   All members are encouraged to participate.  NO MATTER your skill level.
   Lets have some fun.
...............................................................................
Guidelines

The Challenge....
Turn a lidded box.
                          1 ˝”  to 4” in diameter (38mm – 100mm)
                          2” to 4” tall (50mm – 100mm)
                          Design is your choice
                          Wood is your choice
                          Finish is your choice
                          Glue ups are OK

Challenge starts March 1st.  Ends April !st.
Participants must have a photo of their project posted by the deadline to be included in the trade.
Please post here if you intend to participate.
We do have some members outside the U.S., Please indicate whether you’re willing to ship abroad.
Hopefully we can get a dozen or more trades going.

I participated in some of these years ago.  They were a lot of fun.  I ended up trading a pen with a young girl in Australia, IIRC.  I would love to be part of this challenge but March is very busy month and I have no idea how I would make time to get on the lathe and do good job.  Thus, I will bow out of this C & T but I will certainly keep and eye out for future C & T's.

I'm due for a lidded box - I'm in.  Smiley
Guy, just to clarify - OK to assume that the 4in height is for the lidded box itself without a finial, but if desired, a finial could be added atop the 4" height?
