To really make it perfectly clear:

A board foot of all the same wood, with the project starting with a piece 12" x 12" x 1"

Yes?

One could glue up pieces of Poplar, in any way, to get a piece of Poplar 12" x 12" x 1" to Start the project, as if it were purchased that way…. Long Grain being LONG & not short! LOL

Yes?

chuckling … no matter how simple we think a challenge is, there are always clarifications needed.

A board is a board - even if it has been glued together-and in this case does not exceed the 12×12x1 limit.
"But"-- it is implied that the wood is all of the same kind; no mixing walnut and maple. You have to use stain/paint etc to get colour differences.

Question:

The normal dimension of 4/4 1" wood is really 3/4"

In this Challenge, the 12×12 x 1; is the 1" thickness really 1 full inch… or is it 3/4" thick?

Actually, Joe, one person has taken up the challenge and done a very nice job with it, I think one of us just needs to let him know to add challenge-15 as a tag, not just in the title.

Wow, I thought that was a typo, and the contest was intended to be 12"x12'x1". Not sure what I would do with just a 12" square.

Spring 2013 Challenge
Here's our spring challenge for you:
  • one board: one project-- except the board is a maximum size of 12" x 12" x 1".
  • You can re-saw it; cut it; carve it; drill it; paint it; stain it; add anything to it (other than more wood) and create one project with it.

How The Challenge Works
1. Take a picture of your "before" board: maximum size of 1 foot wide, 1 foot long, 1" thick
2. Create a project using the board. Anything can be added to the project EXCEPT more wood
2. Post it as a new project.
3. Tag the project as: challenge-15
4. Have fun.

EDITED - Clarifications
  • yes, you can glue pieces of wood together to get the maximum 12×12x1-"but" it has to be the same wood. No mixing walnut and maple, for example. And don't forget to show us the before picture.

Deadline
Although there is no "real" deadline, as this is an open challenge, projects for this initial challenge are to be posted by March 31st, 2013.
(We look forward to seeing many challenge projects, whether they are posted this month, next year, or ten years from now!)

  • Fun
  • Friendly Competition

I just found this challenge…
Do I read correctly that I could start with 2' X 2' X 1/2" ? (It read 2" X 2" X 1/2")
1 Board Foot?

2' x 2' x 1/2" sounds like a piece of plywood to me. Is that allowed?
Thanks

EDIT: Just running the math again-It felt like it was off a bit.
1' X 2' X 1/2" = 1bf
2' X 2' X 1/2" = 2bf
