Public Show

Consider this your official invite to come on down to our store to browse through the 200-or-so entries in our  latest contest for “Platters, Trays & Trivets.”

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.

Awards Night & Reception

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 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 200 custom made pieces of woodwork under one roof. It’s a unique event and 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.

    Mark, my sincerest thanks to you for organizing events like this, which allow the hobbyist WW to have a moment of fame while showcasing their work. It’s also a great opportunity for introducing and inspiring a crowd, young and old, to the craft. Thank you for hosting an awesome event with an amazing variety of creative pieces!

    Well done to everyone that entered and thank you again Mark/Woodworkers Source.

    • Wonderful! Thanks for the note, Phil! The event would be nothing without all the beautiful projects and participation. We’ll keep on doing this. Thanks
