Sometimes we spend more time building a tool for a project, than on the actual project itself! Other times it's just better to build the specific tool we need rather than buy one.
The Build a Tool Contest celebrates "making-stuff-for-making-stuff" and is open to all types of homemade tools. The best custom-made tools will be eligible to win a $1000 Amazon gift card, welding kits, and more!
Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Feb 4, 2019 and Apr 1, 2019 (11:59pm PT).
Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Build a Tool Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.
Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.
When the winners are decided they will be notified and announced here on the contest page.
