I’d like to remind you all that our Winter 2007 LumberJocks Woodworking Awards entry deadline is just one week away. So far we have 26 entries in Best Creativity and 23 ones in Best Craftsmanship.

I’m sure that our unique LumberJocks Awards deserve more entries – especially considering the number of projects posted here – so hurry up and submit your projects if you haven’t done so yet.

And one surprise – I’ve decided to raise the prize from $150 to $200 Amazon Gift Certificate in each category that will have 50 or more entries (originally it was 100 entries). You deserve it ;)

Two days to go and Best Creativity is on 36.. but we still need 14 more entries to justify higher prizes. So what do you think – are we going to reach 50 entries in one of the categories?

good strategy Martin—- hit the competition theme, not for the contest itself but for posting! You’ll be sure to reach 50 now.!

So the entry deadline is over and we have finished with 47 and 42 entries. Close to 50 but not 50 – and that results in the lower prizes. I will use the saved money to reward some voters. Expect more details tomorrow.

Thanks to everybody who decided to enter the project(s)! Aaand good luck ;)

That depends where you live, Obi. Midnight came a day ago.

Obi, the entry deadline was set exactly to Wednesday January 31, 2007 at 3 PM Central Daylight Time (CDT). So the timezone of the deadline was specified – same with the voting start and end dates.
