Upcoming wood working contest! Answered

We've teamed up with Popular Mechanics to bring you a woodworking contest!

Any form of woodworking is eligible. You can use classic hand tools, power tools or even your granddad's whittlin knife to build something tiny or the size of a house. Share your woodworking project, and explain why and how you made it so others can learn from your experience, and marvel at your awesomeness. 

Contest details soon!

Oh, I'm sure. But I've never seen the contest within a half hour of publishing it.

Yeah, sorry about that. I featured your Instructable right before I posted the teaser. Only found out about it today myself. Though, I'm sure a nice matching coat rack would look good next to that table, maybe a chair?

Maybe if I wasn't moving into the dorms on Wednesday :) Oh well, it happens.

Hmmm, perhaps a rustic dormitory loft bed under which to put your cleverly compact workshop?

I am bringing my whole tool box. Unfortunately, the only power tool I have room for is my drill. Over summer I was the tool guy on my floor. Whenever people needed help adjusting their skateboard or lowering their beds, they came knocking. Maybe I can think of something small to work on while I'm there.
