Can you turn junk into a woodworking treasure and serve it up with class?

July 01, 2008 – Well if you think you can, there are several chances to win great prizes from our fantastic sponsors in the latest Woodworking Awards Event held by LumberJocks.com.

Prizes include “Get The Most From Your Router” Prize Package valued at $299.94 donated by PriceCutter.com, home of “The Woodworker’s Best Values”. “A Cabinetmaker’s Dream” Prize Package at a value of $349.94 donated by Eagle America, the premier source of professional-quality American-Made Router Bits, Jack Rabbit Deluxe Set – $59.00 value, A Simple Varnish Finish DVD by The Wood Whisperer and unique LumberJocks rosewood trophy and plaques.

Twice a year, LumberJocks.com hosts a Woodworking Awards Event where woodworkers from around the world enter projects into two designated categories in hopes of being voted top woodworker of one of the divisions.

This year, not only are the woodworkers seeking the honor of being voted as the best in each category but they are also hoping to be selected as the top “overall” woodworker.

Summer Awards 2008
This event is free and is open to all woodworkers. To enter and vote one must be a member of LumberJocks.com. Joining the online community is easy and is also free.

The Summer Woodworking Awards is an interactive event, with participants discussing their projects and writing blogs about the creating process at LumberJocks.com. The Award recipients are then selected by the LumberJocks themselves, using a simple online voting system.

Submissions to this event’s project categories, “One Man’s Junk” and “Serve it up with Class”, will be received during the month of July, voted on during the first week of August and the Awards announced on August 8, 2008. For the Summer Woodworking Awards’ official rules visit http://lumberjocks.com/awards/summer_2008.

In honor of the respect shown by fellow woodworkers, the top woodworkers in each category will receive tools, DVD’s, trophies and plaques provided by the event sponsors and LumberJocks.com. Martin Sojka, the founder of LumberJocks.com, is thrilled about the support supplied by sponsors. Price Cutter, Eagle America, Jack Rabbit and The Wood Whisperer have all provided amazing products and services for the Award recipients.

LumberJocks First Trophy
The special excitement for the Awards event this year is the inclusion of a unique rosewood trophy. After the voting is complete, the woodworker with the most points, combined from the two categories, will be given the title of “Best Overall LumberJock” and will receive the commemorative LumberJocks trophy.
