It’s time to let the creative juices flow again! Thousands of LumberJocks, five sponsors, a whole bunch of amazing prizes and one category. That’s the summary of our LumberJocks Woodworking Awards Summer 2010. Our goal is, as always, to highlight the creativity of all woodworkers – regardless of skill level – through the use of materials that are available to all. So here is the Summer 2010 topic:

Fluidity – “Like grasses swaying in a summer breeze, the fluid motion is visible in the solid form of the wood.” Create a woodworking project that portrays fluidity and/or movement, Be sure to describe your inspiration and vision – the interpretation is as important as the finished product.

I’m still working on getting my board square and you already want me to try and put curves back into them? This sounds like a fun contest for me to watch from the sidelines. I always struggle with the timelines, but I love watching our more talented members and seeing what they come up with. Those are some generous prizes from the sponsors that will undoubtedly be appreciated!! Thanks to all!
