The winners of the 2015 Veneertech Craftsman’s Challenge were announced today at the AWFS Fair in Las Vegas and while I didn’t place “in the money”, I did manage to win special judge’s awards for my jewellery box in the marquetry category and my old Jack in the box in the specialty items category.
I’m pretty pleased, there were a lot of very good entries.

Neat. Congrats.
That jewelry box should have one first place money in my opinion.

Good for you,
Steve

Paul, your work is some of the most beautiful work that I have ever seen in the wide wide world of woodworking. There is no doubt that your work was deserving of whaterver awards you received and then some. Congratulations.

Well deserved, Paul. The table that won the marquetry category must have been really something to beat out your jewelry box.

Congratulations. A great finish in an unusually difficult forum. (for a jewelry box) Well deserved, and an award to be proud of. I never doubted that the box would be a winner! It’s an exceptional piece of work.
