Roger Weinreber’s Mission-Style Furniture Wins Best of Show, Excellence in Woodworking Show

by Mark Stephens | February 28th, 2011

If there’s a reminder about craftsmanship in woodworking to be found in Roger Weinreber’s project, it’s this:  attentive execution in a classic furniture design goes a long way.

Roger entered his mission-style piece in the Excellence in Woodworking contest that was hosted by the Arizona Association of Fine Woodworkers earlier this month.

His cabinet didn’t just turn heads, but also took the Best of Show award.

Take a look.  In woodworking, it’s awfully easy to get carried away with all the choices you have between design tweaks, wood types, joinery options, random visions that come to you in your sleep… But then there’s something to a project like this cabinet in which just good ol’ fashioned craftsmanship wins the big award.

Congratulations to Roger!


Here’s a closer look at his piece:
