Furniture. It keeps stuff off the ground, you need it, and it’s easy to build for yourself. Though it can be difficult to execute perfectly, there are few builds more rewarding then one that you see and use every day.

For your chance to win a MacBook Pro, Dremel Saw-Max, Dremel Trio, Dremel Multi-Max or Dremel 8200, enter your furniture project. Whether it’s a workbench, a formal dining table, or just a set of shelves, we want to see what you’re building to keep stuff off of the floor. Just submit a Step-by-Step, Photo, or Video Instructable to be considered for one of the awesome prizes.
