« Part 4: Questions & Answers Part 5 of Get Published - Bookcase Challenge series Part 6: And The Winners Are... »

Don’t forget that the entry deadline of our Bookcase Challenge is on Sunday.. so there are just 4 days to go.

I suggest to read the rules carefully before posting your polished entry. Here they are again:


  1. The primary function of the entry is as a bookcase. You won’t gain points if the piece is a dining table with shelves located below the apron ;) Plus it must be able to be built in the real world – not just in the computer program.
  2. Design must be your own, not copied from another existing piece.
  3. Design your entry in Google SketchUp or other 3D/CAD program. Hand drawn plans are accepted as well.
  4. SUBMIT your challenge entry as the regular blog entry (not as the project) and tag it with challenge04 (of course you may add any additional tags too):

    Note that you don’t need to use ‘challenge04’ in the blog entry title.
  5. You can submit only one entry – give it your best shot.
  6. Describe your modeling process in a blog entry and add at least one screenshot of the finished bookcase design created by you.
  7. You must include the final model file in your entry – if you’re submitting other than hand drawn plans. SKP SketchUp file or DFX file if you’re using CAD-type program.
  8. The entry deadline is April 20th.
  9. Winners will be announced online at and on April 25th.

I’ve been trying to get to it and was thinking I’d just sneak in under the wire. Now just this morning I was asked to work on a super double top secret project proposal all weekend. Not looking good. That and the surf is supposed to be great tomorrow…..:). If I do it it’s going to have to be quick and dirty.

Can you be more specific on the deadline. Does April 20th mean entries will be accepted through April 20th (April 21 too late….) or is there a more specific timeline that I may have missed? Thanks for the clarification.

Yes.. 21st April is late. Consider April 20 in your local time zone and it will be fine.
