    I have a log splitter I modified with a drop hitch so it would tow behind my 4wheeler. Off road only. I'm not sure the category it would fit within for the contest. Any ideas? thank you.

    that's what I was thinking too, but hoped for moderator ok, so no screw-up.

    The contest guidelines call the category 'shop tools' or improvements. Guess I don't look at my log splitter as a shop tool, at least not for metalwork. (being funny) I already added my bandsaw stand as a shop tool improvement. Maybe a moderator will chime in here before long. Thank you.

    True, but it is used to split wood to heat your shop!

    I don't have wood heat in my shop, but I use 6 cords+ every winter to heat the house.

    Does each project need to be started in a new thread? If so I may have just wasted a bunch of time because I've shown at least one project in an existing thread.

    I would say yes. As it's the only way to get the title.

    I must admit that I haven't capitalized on my time this winter. It seems my projects will have to wait for spring or summer time. A simple Wrought iron gate is in the works. That could be art although I'm not an artsy type of guy.

    Question: when is this spring contest going to commence? If at all possible can it be a spring-summer contest spanning both. That'll allow the snow to melt and allow for a lot more outdoor projects. Like maybe April or is that too late?

    Good morning, Tanh-
    This thread is associated with a contest from last Spring, not the current contest. The current Winter contest ends Feb 28 2013, when contestants and their entries are considered for prizes.

    Oh! Pardon me. I always jump the gun it seems. Thanks for the correction.

    I thought it was an introduction into this spring's contest. Although it doesn't make much sense as the winter contest is still running. That's what happens when you work straight night continentals. The gears don't turn as fast as they used to.
