Here’s a sample of what to expect – the last show featured an amazing selection of handcrafted platters, trays and trivets.

Public Show

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 “Accent Tables.”

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.

Contest Voting

Anyone who comes to view the entries is encouraged to submit a vote for their favorite entries. But don’t worry — above all we want to host a fun and interesting event, so we’re not asking for a critical review.

Instead, the voting ballot just asks for your 5 favorite entries. Which ones appeal to you? Pick your favorite five, no ranking necessary, just pick out the five that you like the best.

Then we add up the votes. It’s as simple as that.

View and vote between 8:00 am to 5:00 pm March 27 through April 1, 2017.

Expect the ballot to look like this (sample from a previous contest)

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 just custom made wood furniture 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.

    Does voting end at 5pm sharp today, or what time?

    I stopped by today and checked out all the amazing entries. It looks like a few pieces were larger than the 20″ limit. How will they be handled?

  • Chuck Kight

    are they going to be posted on-line for voting or display

    • Yes. We will be sharing a few here and there on Instagram etc. throughout the week. and we’ll post a whole gallery right here next week.

  • Phil Crawford

    What was the final count for “accent table” entries?
