Tis the season to start planning your upcoming summer picnic.

Our 2012 LumberJocks Summer Awards are officially here so it’s time get busy again. As always, we are looking for not only the skills involved in the build but the creativity as well. Be sure to describe your project as this is an important component of the Awards selection process which will be done by your fellow LumberJocks.


Category: Personal Picnic Butler – Summertime means outdoor eating and outdoor eating often means having a plate and a beverage in hand and no where to set them down – until now! Build your version of a “personal picnic butler”, some type of plate and beverage holder for outdoor eating. Perhaps it sticks in the ground or maybe it is a table for one; perhaps it hangs from a tree branch or .. well, there are lots of possibilities! Be sure to include a photo of the butler in action.




  • Winner – $500 Cash Prize
  • Runner-Up – $200 Cash Prize
  • Five Winners (random draw) – LumberJocks t-shirt
