Hi everyone, davidbuzz here! - Just adding my personal note here, (as instructed!).
I think that my entry, which took two weekends to write (not including yurt building time of innumerable hours and 3 yurts), and includes nearly a hundred photos, and full details, is rather good, and really comprehensive. It's also backed up by the fact that it's already inspired at least 2 others to start building yurts themselves, which is fantastic. Thanks to everyone's interest, my instructable made it into BOTH the "top rated", AND the "most visits" lists prior to being a finalist, so it must be popular. Please vote for me to show that! (up-rate this forum post!)
As for winning the laser-cutter, I can promise you that I already have 20 different uses for it in mind ... including finishing my CNC table and building a 'reprap' (google it), and I'll be sure to post instructables on the good ones of them for everyone to see too!.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to offer the use of the laser cutter to any instructables members located in Australia, for the cost of the materials & postage ... if I win! Yes, that means I've just opened myself up to 22 MILLION possible users (the population count of Oz) ... so put your votes in NOW!
