Unlike trade shows, the Excellence in Woodworking show is more like a celebration of the craft, art, and science of woodworking and presented by the Arizona Association of Fine Woodworkers. It features a large display of superior completed projects from bowls and keepsake boxes to tables and rocking chairs, all handmade by woodworkers from all over Arizona.
If you’re in the area, why not be one of them?
You can enter your woodwork into the juried contest for a shot a blue ribbon, a prize, or legendary status with fame and fortune. Consider building a keepsake box, turning a bowl, or creating an heirloom-quality piece of furniture for entry in to the show.
There’s a special emphasis on the category of wooden toys at the 2015 show, so if you’re out of ideas, build a toy.
While the event is presented by the Arizona Association of Fine Woodworkers, you don’t need to be a member to enter the exhibit.
