Outrageous Cab Contest December-January 2016-17
« on: December 02, 2016, 04:53:02 PM »

We're going to do a 2 month Outrageous Cab Contest this round.  With the holidays (and winter), we're going to have less entrants if we just do December.  So make your cabs and post them up to usher out the old year and ring in the new year!

 Rules:
1) Cab must be made by you.
2) Cab must be made within the time period of this contest.  Contest begins on the first of the month and ends on 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the month.  NO pulling old cabs from your storage baskets!
3) As long as the basic shape is considered a cab it's golden.  You can enter intarsias and carved top cabs such as cameos etc.  After all, this is the OUTRAGEOUS cab contest!  We love free form cabs!  Pull out the stops and give us the best you have!
4) One entry per person please!
5) Please show photos of your slabs and preforms if you can so we can see your thought process and how you did things.
6) No finished jewelry pieces.  Just the cab.
7) Cab sets are OK.
8) This is only for bragging rights and your cabochon photo posted up top in the forums unless someone posts a lapidary related prize and wants to ship it to the winner of the contest.

Let the games begin!!!   :toothy10:

With the holidays and winter I thought this would keep everyone interested. I'm going deep in my slabs to try and save shipping to someone else! LOL :blob1:

Hi All

Wow that is a crazy prize :headbang: So Phish you think it is already yours? Well I will do my best to make a cool entry. After I finish cutting stones for Christmas that leaves me like 35 days to come up with something killer and I have an idea if luck and skill are in sinc :LOLOL: But I have to try.

Love this forum

Bless

You guys can keep your winter cold!  I've been pissed that I have to put on a jacket at night the last month or so (and my jacket goes on when the mercury dips below 50).  I have no weather excuses for not getting a cab done yet, simply holiday related ones.  I'm fixing a Christmas gift that my wife ordered but it got screwed up (I'll share photos when I finish that one) and I do holiday caramels every year (I hand wrapped over a thousand of them last weekend).  My friends call them "Karlmels" (my name is Karl) and every year I try to come up with some new flavors. This year the two new flavors were peppermint and bacon.  Both are a hit. 

I'm just glad we extend this contest through next month also.  I'll be sure to get an entry in this time.
