it would be really nice if you had a contest of what we make, i think that would be better to show off the fact that we use our tools. wouldnt it??? not just hanging our tools on the walls of garages and basements.
Like <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/contest/workshopofthefuture/">this one</a>?<br/>
alexander.msays: why do you exclude quebec I'm thinking... we can't read french!!!
why do you exclude quebec
Legal issues. We would have to have a lot more French on the site, basically.
what is the point of a battery powered caulking gun. faster release. why is everything electric now auto hammer auto vise
Faster, uniform, easier, and good for people with bad hands
i'd better get to cleaning.
Awww, I thought the prize was going to be they will BUILD your dream space... now that would be awesome...
Hmm...Must get to work learning Sketchup, my current workshop is too much of a mess to share pictures of, the horror would probably cause seizures.<br/><br/><sub>I didn't even know that they <em>made</em> battery-powered caulking guns....</sub><br/>
my dad would like to enter this but doesnt have an account so could he enter it under mine (im 13) or should he make a new one?
He can use your account.
you could do it for him and then he could take the stuff but if you plan to stay with instructables signing up is easy as lifting a finger
This is a <em>perfect</em> contest for Dad! He's always complaining about his workshop and how he wishes he had a better one. <br/>
OH! This must be the contest you all were talking about! Cool!
This is one of them. The other one is actually much bigger.
Oh wow, just saw that one...20 K! I don't even know what I'd enter...it's so large as to be almost discouraging in a way...
That's one of the reasons we split it up with a smaller contest as well.
