    Using My Own Two Hands

    Your photo must show, as its main subject, something that you built or assembled yourself. You may have had help, but it must be something that was predominantly assembled or built by you.

    Food or edible items are not eligible for this contest.

    Zz.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 800 x 600 or 600 x 800 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. The photo of the subject must be something that you took directly, not via in intermediary medium, and not taken by someone else. Unless otherwise noted, a photo of another photo, painting, print, etc. does not qualify.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread. Photos not meant for submission must not be posted in the contest thread. Posting of more than one photos by a member may result in an automatic disqualification from the week's contest.

    Zz.

    Sure, I'll report the initial post to have it deleted.

    My own design- the skeleton is helix-shaped, the dresser is assembled without nails.

    All this Creativity ! And the craftsmanship !
    I'm embarassed by my purely practical submission....

    The space behind a bathroom door is wasted.
    In a small retirement house with a 5X8 bathroom it's worth recovering.
    I nestled between two studs a 'makeup center'
    with outlet for hair dryer & curlers,
    storage,
    and mirrors centered precisely at Fair Anne's eyeball height.(she's 4'10")

    Lower doors hide twenty four rolls of TP.
    hmmm looks like i never quite finished the trim.....

    I feel so unaccomplished :(

    I would, however, have slightly better things to show for if this contest was not limited to “photographs”.

    I notice that many PF-ers like woodworking, too. Distinguished hobby? Yes. Something I would try? No, I'm afraid of splinters.

    Turns out this was due to my testing the HTML pages w/ IE, which is very forgiving of sloppy HTML but then failing to test in FireFox which is unnecessarily restrictive about HTML. It's fixed now. Thanks again for the head's up.
