It's The Last Minute, You're Building . . . So Share

While I'm bogged down with very little shop time and a large holiday project still half-built, please do as I say and not as I do.

Hopefully, this will be a bench someday (soon).
The +Modern Woodworkers Association is running the Last Minute Elf project this year. We know we're not the only ones rushing to finish projects for the holidays. With the Last Minute Elf, we're looking to share each others projects and methods. Anything from an heirloom piece of furniture to a simple turned ornaments. Even quick and fancy ways to finish them. If you're working on a project for the holidays, or know a method or finish which would be helpful to others for their holiday projects, please share them with us. Please email the project or a link to your post about the project to

This year, with Gorilla Glue's help, we're not just sharing methods, we've even got some schwag and prizes to give out. We'll be awarding prize packaged for
  • The Best Turned Project
  • The Greenest Project (using recycled materials)
  • The Best Project What Will Fit Inside a Large USPS Flat Rate Shipping Box (12" x 12" x 5.5")
  • The Best Gift For A Child
  • The Best Gife For An Adult
  • The Coolest Tip To Build a Holiday Project on Time

We hope you'll join us in building and sharing for the holidays.
