    Hello every one It's time for snowmen.

    Ok so now that the holiday rush is over it's time to get back out in the shop.
    So we have just the reason to get you motivated.
    Last year we had some fun making snowmen so it's on again.

    THE RULES
    1 You must ship your snowman to the winner.
    2 You must put your mark on said snowman.
    3 A pic of the entree must be emailed to me.
    4 The winner will be decided by a poll of the members.
    5 No pics of your snowman to be posted by the maker until the poll closes.
    So last year it was a turned only thing this year it is open to how ever you want to make a snowman. It must be made from one or all of the following.
    Wood, bone, antler, acrylic, Or some other synthetic wood type material and lets not forget metal.
    So remember we don't care how you make it whittle it carve it turn it matters not just do it.
    The make part of this will run to February20th. Some time shortly after that a poll will be posted for 10 days and the winner will be announced.
    IF YOU WANT IN ON THIS YOU CAN POST HERE BUT YOU WILL NEED TO PM ME FOR THE EMAIL ADDRESS TO SEND YOUR PIC TO.
    If I do not have a pic of the finished snowman by 2/20/10 your not entered.
    And here would be last years group. And yes they are residing on my desk.

    Chuck, one of those snowmen on your desk looks suspiciously like Mr Hanky....

    Heck, If you let Mr. Hanky in, I guess you can count me in for a snowman...
