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!

Hi, I've got a question, when does the contest really end? In the mail it says: "The contest closes on Sep 12, 2010" and on the contest side it says: "Contest closes Oct. 3. Enter now!" Thanks a lot

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?

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.
