Consider this your official invite to come on down to our store to browse through the 100-or-so entries in our latest contest for “Handcrafted Toys, Games & Puzzles.”
Woodworkers from all over the state have made a vast array of handcrafted projects and they’re on display in this show. Come check them out. (What’s this contest all about? Details are here >)
In fact, voting is open to the public, so you’re encouraged to cast a vote for your favorite 5 entries – yes, it’ll be tough to decide but your contribution is one way that makes this event so much fun.
First place winner is going to get $500 credit to use at our store!
This event is a celebration of woodworking that gives woodworkers a chance to do something with their craft that helps out our community. In this case, we’re helping local non-profit Southwest Human Development do something nice for the children they place in foster homes in Arizona. We’ve asked our customers to make a toy, game or puzzle and bring it in for this event.
So, come on down to see the projects! You’ll be pleasantly amazed at the work, and at kindness of strangers who want to being a little goodness to the world.
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.
This is a special show. There won’t be any 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 just custom made wood projects under one roof. We think of this as a special kind of even that you can’t get anywhere else.
I sure hope you’ll come experience it. 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.
