First Prize In A Wedding Contest

Earlier in the month I was very lucky to have placed among the finalists in the Instructables “Wedding” contest!  Judging finished on the 4th of July and to my pleasant surprise I came joint first with two other creators! is a fantastic website where a community of makers and creators upload DIY tutorials for others to learn from.  You can find everything from great recipes to wood working plans and I have spent many a rainy afternoon scrolling through the website for cool projects to try.

Every month Instructables host a number of competitions which anyone can enter and they always give away bundles of rad prizes!  The brief for the Wedding contest was simple: craft something for your big day.

I entered my tutorial on How To Make A Metal Ring With A Wood Inlay.  Rings are a big part of weddings so I knew it would fit the brief perfectly.  This simple wood lathe project is easy to follow and a great skill builder.

I was far from expecting to win a prize so when I received an email saying that I was a finalist I excitedly clicked through to the competition page and saw that I’d placed joint first!  The prize was a swanky Garmin Forerunner GPS watch which I will be using to me train for an obstacle course run later in the year!
