This Fall, we want to see your best jewelry box!
Why a jewelry box you ask? That has something to do with our 40th anniversary. In 1978 our founder Keith went to a local hardwood dealer seeking help building a jewelry box for his wife Betty. The sales staff literally laughed him out of the shop for not knowing the basics.
The whole experience gave him the idea to start his own business – a different and better kind of retail experience for people just getting started in woodworking, or who just enjoy crafting beautiful things out of fine woods to make their home a warmer one.
This is our way of paying a tribute to our origin, and celebrating the art of woodworking!
You don’t have to be an expert to enter. We just want to see what you come up with and spend a Saturday evening recognizing everyone’s hard work and their love of handcrafted woodwork.
Want some inspiration? By all means, please check out the gallery of ideas at bottom. I’ve assembled them on Pinterest the bottom.

Frequently Asked Questions & Details
We only have so much space, so we’re asking for small projects.
It’s not judged.
Instead, we have a public vote system. This contest is more or less for fun, so we simply gather votes from anyone who comes to view the projects. That also means we encourage you to invite your friends and family to come down to browse the projects and log a vote.
Historically, the projects that win prizes are very creative or include dazzling details. Take a look at our past contests to get a feel for what wins:
Your project can look like anything you want, it’s your project. But if you’re interested in winning, it will need to stand out from the crowd.
Because we want to encourage you to build a project and attend a fun event!
Woodworkers Source is a different kind of woodworking shop, and this event is one of the things we do to say thanks to our customers.
We view this as a two-way street:
We love to see the projects you make. This contest is also a cool way to celebrate art, and gives us a fun and different way to say thank you to our esteemed customers.
Sure, but we’ll only accept one entry… So we’d suggest focusing on 1 really awesome jewelry box.
