A couple times a year we host a simple woodworking contest by establishing a project theme and a deadline — then we wait. Every time we do this,  the truth is I’m simply blown away and tongue-tied by the vast array of entries we get to see. It’s a delightful surprise to see the creativity and craftsmanship that folks pour into their projects.

And you should see them too! Consider this your official invite to come on down to our store to browse through over 100 entries in our  latest contest for “Wall Art.”  In fact, voting is open to the public, so you’re encouraged to cast a vote for your favorite 5 entries – you’ll be helping us determine the winners of some very fine woodworking tools.

Public Viewing & Voting

When: November 12, 13 & 14, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Where: Woodworkers Source, Phoenix (18115 N. Black Canyon Hwy, Phoenix, Az 85023)

Public Reception & Awards Night

When: November 14, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Where: Woodworkers Source, Phoenix (18115 N. Black Canyon Hwy, Phoenix, Az 85023)

This is going to be a cool event. I like to think of it as a woodworking art show. All the projects will be on display, we’re providing some hors d’oeuvres and beverages, many of the builders (hopefully all!) will be there, plus it’ll be your last chance to log a vote for your favorites — and then we’ll announce the winners and pass out prizes.

To clear the air, there will be no vendors peddling drills or sandpaper or any of that business. Instead, this event is about recognizing artwork and the people who build it. It’s not everyday you get to see a collection of over 100 custom made pieces of woodwork under one roof. It’s a unique event and I’d like to keep it that way.

I’d be overjoyed to see you there. In fact, bring your friends and family if you can (and make them cast a vote!) We expect to announce the winners and start passing out prizes around 6:15 pm, as it’ll take some time for us to tally up the votes.

So enjoy the hors d’oeuvres and beverages we’ll provide, peruse the projects, and chat with the other builders.

If you can make it to the event, please do come. You’ll enjoy it.
