This phase is currently closed to further activity.
We know the Maker Studio is filled to the brim with talent, so now is the time to pair that talent with some creativity. The task at hand: upcycle an item you find at a garage sale, thrift store, or tucked behind something in your workshop, and use your Dremel tools to transform it into something completely different.
Make sure you check out the rules below - we can't wait to see your projects!
Welcome to Maker Makeover Challenge
How to Participate & Challenge Rules
Find one item at a garage sale or thrift store for $20 or less, or find something you already have that you can upcycle. Your submission should only include one item.
Your item must be purchased and/or transformed between October 23 – November 17, 2019. Projects completed prior to this date are not eligible.
You must use at least one Dremel product in your project.
Submit your entry via the Challenge form before the submission entry period closes (November 17th).
Include ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos of your project, as well as any in-progress shots you may have. Please also list the Dremel tools used.
Only one submission per person is permitted. Members submitting more than one project will be contacted to choose which submission remains in the challenge.
