How to Follow the Wall Shelf Build-Off

With the big day looming and registration now closed, I’d like to share some links so that you can follow along with the Wall Shelf Build-Off participants. You can also search for the official hashtag #WSBO.

Note that not everybody who registered provided links to where they are sharing their builds. Also, not everybody has committed 100% to participating.

Buzz about the Wall Shelf Build-Off

The Wall Shelf-Build-Off starts this weekend and you won’t want to miss it. In face, Jonas Jensen called it “the biggest event since the American presidential inauguration”.

Here’s some of the attention the contest has been getting around the web.

Jim Dillon @ The Thousand Dollar Shop

Garth @ Time Warp Tool Works

Megan Fitzpatrick @ Popular Woodworking

360 Woodworking

The Dusty Life

Jonas Jensen @ Mulesaw

There’s still time to sign up for the #WSBO!

Behind the Design

One of the design blogs that I follow, 2Modern, is beginning a new series called Behind the Design with the intent to “tell the story of the person behind the handcrafted pieces on the 2Modern site.”

Their first article is focused on designer/woodworker/maker Andy Johnson.

I will be watching for more of this series, for sure!
