If you’re into building furniture out of wood, you’ll want to enter our contest. The details about what to build, the rules, how to enter are at that page, but we thought we’d list the prize packages here on this separate page.

And the prizes are downright fantastic – a JET mortiser, Kreg Jig, Tenryu table saw blades, and much more. There are over $2000 worth of prizes. All you need to do is dazzle us with your craftsmanship!

In short, build a small occasional table (no larger than 32″ in length, width, or height), put your best effort forward, then turn it in on March 1st. On March 7, we’ll announce the winners, post an online gallery, and announce a public exhibit of selected tables. Go to our contest page to register.
