In our latest woodworking contest, there were 74 entries. The constraints on the showdown were simple: build an occasional table no larger than 32″ in length width or height of any design or style. May the best one win.

That turned out to be a daunting task for our panel of 7 judges. The tables we received were all so different. There were modern style tables, Queen Anne tables, triangular tables, circular tables, hall tables, coffee tables, period replicas, unique designs, and everything in between. The judges selected their 10 favorites, then scored the semi-finalists by inspecting joints and workmanship and tallying up the results to determine the top 3 winners. They also chose 9 other tables for Honorable Mentions for outstanding details of one form or another. Like best finish, best fluting, etc.(You can see those here >>>)

So now we turn to you to elect the “People’s Choice” winner. Tell us which table you think deserves it. Browse the pictures of the tables below (there are 71, so be patient). I’ve removed the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. You can choose up to 5 tables as your favorites, and then the table with the most votes wins, and the owner will be awarded a Bora Wide Track Clamp Edge Set, Festool Toolbox, Trend diamond sharpening stone.

PLUS! Prizes for the 2 through 10 voted positions: Be sure to vote for 5 tables you like! We also have other small prizes for the tables voted into the first 10 positions: A Festool Toolbox, Tajima pull saw, Bessey tool bags, Trend table saw blade, Taunton books and DVDs, and a few other items.

Choose up to 5 tables, check them off on the right, then click “Vote”
