no previous part Part 1 of LJ Woodworking Awards - Winter 2011 series Part 2: Cast Your Votes! »

It’s time to get busy again. The LumberJocks Woodworking Awards Winter 2011 are officially here and this time we have a very creative theme that should result in many amazing entries. As always, the goal is to highlight the creativity of all of our members (regardless of skill level) through the use of materials that are available to all woodworkers. And here is the theme:

The Art of Joinery – dovetails, mitres, and even the good old butt joint can turn a practical project into a piece of art. For this Winter Awards, show us your artistic joinery creations, whether they are in a piece of furniture, a sculpture or – whatever your imagination can design. As always we want to hear about your creation and how it came to life..










1st place – $200 gift certificate by Woodcraft

2nd place – $150 gift certificate by ColorCopper

3rd placeDremel Trio by Dremel


The entry deadline is January 31, 2011 at 3 PM CDT and you can enter the Awards page here.

Note to twitter power users: spread the word by clicking on the blue twitter share button on the Awards page and your linked tweet will appear in the live LJ Awards twitter stream.


Good luck and have fun!

Nice prizes Martin! Now if only my joinery wasn’t so challenged.
