I may have a bit of bias but I would like to nominate mfiore for taking the extra bit of work and finishing his oven with one nice tidy keystone...
That will add another candidate!!!

Not sure if Christo has won any of these or not, but since the subject is open to more than just ovens, I think Christo should be nominated for his dual arch curve allowing installation of lights thing. Absolutely one of the coolest inovations on the standard build that I have seen. If it was somebody elses idea, then maybe they should be nominated

Of course I mentioned Mike early on, but having gone through Les' build, easy vote for him as well. Amazing people, craftmanship, and inovations all over this forum!

Thanks Travis!

I stole most of my ideas from others on the forum (maybe embellished a few) - There are so many good ones out here!!!! Neill and I may have been working on arch lighting ideas at the same time - but he beat me to the punch and got his implemented before I did. - he deserves the nod for that innovation. I'll get him next time!

I love a good keystone mfiore did a great job!!

I certainly appreciate it. I joked around, but Dutch really did encourage me. I was going to just put a big plug in (I was really ready to finish off that dome!), but Dutch "challenged" me. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

I think we should award with Les an absolutely-best-dome-to-date award and move on to the the December nominations. It just seems unfair to nominate anyone else to compete with that dome!

I don't know about you lot, but that's the way I feel. I've got lots of ideas for BOTM December though...

I agree, Frances. Give him the inevitable award and move on to Dec. No vote required.

I concur. Les's dome is wonderful. I have stolen many ideas from him. It's a perfect example of pushing the edges of construction- in a good way, of course. Heck, the man hot glued things! You have to love that!

Let's get started!

Hey James

Just a thought. Looking at the most recent post, it has been difficult for our group to remember who has recently won Best of Month. In the future when you open a post of Best of Month, you might include a short list of most recent winners. Or have a post listing all past winners.
