Our Winter Awards event this year honours the mighty walnut by building, carving, cutting, staining, and/or whatever your woodworking heart desires, creating something walnut-y! Remember to describe your entry choice and how it represents “walnut”.

Can I enter a previously posted project or does it have to be a new build for this contest?

it actually doesn’t have to be made out of walnut at all !!! It just has to be walnut-y in some way.

Someone will carve a walnut from walnut dyed with stain made from walnut husks, that opens and has wood walnuts carved from walnut sapwood and win.
