Title: The Wall Shelf Build-Off: January 28-29
Post by: Chris Wong on January 10, 2017, 10:55 AM
Everybody is Invited to Participate!

The purpose of the Wall Shelf Build-Off (#WSBO) is to encourage woodworkers from around the world to simultaneously build a project in their own workshops and share the process online January 28 and 29, just like the Shop Stool Build-Off that I hosted four years ago. I expect to see many returning participants and lots of new faces.

#WSBO Rules are Simple:

Build a wall-mounted shelf during the weekend of January 28 - 29.
Share the process online via social media (#WSBO), blog, and/or forum.
To be eligible for prizes, pre-register, then submit your entry by Tuesday January 31 (see below). I have reached out to many organizations, including Festool, to sponsor prizes.

Start Thinking About a Shelf Design

You can work from plans or you can design on the fly. You can use wood, metal or even some other material. One great thing about a wall shelf is that the design possibilities are endless. Check out my Pinterest collection of wall shelf ideas if you need some inspiration.

Two Days to Build your Wall Shelf

I hope to finish my shelf in one day, but the build-off will carry on through Sunday for those who require more time.

After the shelves are complete, I would like to share everybody’s work on my blog.

We had a lot of fun and had a lot of participation four years ago with the Shop Stool Build-Off, and I’m really excited about this year's Wall Shelf Build-Off!
