"Wurst" Hot Dog Eating Contest Trophy Ever!

We have a cookout on Friday at work for my department, and the group wants to have a hot dog eating contest. So naturally, had to come up with some type of trophy. I found a hot dog tree topper from thingiverse that I 3D printed, and the bottom is a combination of proof grade Walnut and acrylic, separated by a some standoffs.

Ha! I love to see 3d printing and laser come together. Nice use of the standoffs.

I’m up to 9 printers now. My wife just shakes her head at me; especially since they’ve been mostly sitting dormant the last few months.

The hotdog is amazing! was that 3d printed in color? I got a color 3d printer but still figuring how to put it together.

That’s a lot of toys. But, I have the same thing, only for photography gear,

Ah, I forgot the photography gear. What was I thinking?

But, she did make me get rid of the motorcycle when we moved.

In that case it’s completely reasonable. You need to fill out that empty space in your heart. :wink:

We crowned a champion today. Had 6 participants in the contest. Winner downed 6.75 dogs in 10 minutes. 3 others ate a respectable 6. Makes you marvel at Joey Chestnut for eating 72 at the Nathan’s contest. The trophy was very popular.

This is an incredibly wonderful trophy - sounds like the winner deserves it. I imagine the creator of the hot dog tree topper would find this an amusing application too!

That is really great–nice use of tech/materials and fantastic finished look!

just one suggestion: instead of “Champion” shouldn’t it say '“Wiener”?
