    Congratulations to all the winners and to those who took time to enter. A lot of those boxes were "winners" even if they didnt get a prize.

    This bit should be completely ignored, although I know that despite this warning, you will read it through to the very end.

    Yeah well done to all those that entered and had a crack, It'd be interesting to know if any of the entrants didn't think it was worthwhile having a go as I reckon these things give much more than they take, skills aside being involved certainly activates the grey matter.

    I'm bordering on astonishment there weren't more entrants, maybe there should be a poll on why people don't want to enter these things, maybe you'd get a false reading though

    Um...from someone who didn't enter...got a good excuse though...but it's just an excuse

    You could have entered your shed in the "Pine Box" section perhaps.

    I like entering challenges cos A dead line kinda focuses the mind. And designing to someone else's criteria, I always find, stimulates a new direction. Not that I need yet another direction.

    It's not so much that you take a new direction, more like a new rotation.

    You could add dj-ing to pottery and turning. Yo mama, you could be tea ladilicioius...

    Default Why enter competitions?

    Why enter competitions?

    (1) to try and create a work that extends the grey matter and to develop new skills;

    (2) there is a deadline, which is a good discipline;

    (3) to participate with other members of our community, a sense of belonging;

    (4) and because of Neil our host, a bloke who brings us together ~ our community, entering this competition is a very small price to say thank you and to support the Woodwork Forums.

    (5) to learn from the results

    I agree with Tony but add,

    (5) to learn

    Hence I believe the Judges scores and rationale would be worthwhile to understand the major differences in the voting.

    Happy to add Billy's No. 5 to my list of the why to!

    Re Billy's further comment ~ "Hence I believe the Judges scores and rationale would be worthwhile to understand the major differences in the voting." I am not sure I agree with this proposition as their discussion is generally "held in camera" that is they should remain private.

    There is of course an opportunity for their rationale, e.g. a demonstration of how they arrived at their decision, if they are engaged to create the rules for the following competition.

    I hope that makes sense?

    Yep.....all that makes sense.
    So during the day.....I'll get together the judges comments on each entry and post them here.
    Bear with me, and I'll "git 'er done".

    OK that didn't work out really well..........a couple of the Judges don't feel comfortable with that idea.....and another I have been able to contact. (non-member)
    So..instead.
    Here are the Judging criteria used in this Challenge, which are exactly the same as the criteria used in the 2008 Challenge.

    Creativity
    Workmanship
    Originality
    Aesthetics
    Finish

    Each entry has been given marks out of 10 on each of those points
    So......5 judging points.......gives us marks out of 50 for each entry.
    50% poll.....50% Judges...makes the maths easy.

    I hope that makes it easier.

    You've lost me. Do you mean just do things to things that go around in circles? ........ I'm pretty good round a round about.

    That's a big job. If people want more general comments and feedback on their particular box maybe they could post them in the "critique" section. I still haven't been game to do that. Have to be up for critical feedback as well as pats on the back.

    Thanks for all your work Mr WWF Box Challenge. :bigkiss:

    post them in the "critique" section. :
    I hate having to explain a joke you seem to like those 'circle' things (pottery wheel, lathe) I was just trying to think of more circular pursuits.
    ...roundabouts, spinning yarn, beating eggs, grinder on a yacht... that sort of thing.

    there's a critique section???

    Cheers

    I tend to agree with the judges, the last thing i think we need is to end up having a 'discussion' (read bung fight) over judges opinions.
