Summer 2019 Woodworking Contest

Make something cool and want to enter it for a chance to win one of three amazing prize packs? Well, look no further! This contest runs from Monday, July 15, 2019, through Friday, September 13, 2019. Like previous contests, you can enter as many of your projects for a chance to win.

I want to remind the contestants that you have to upload at least 5 photos of your project. I've removed entries in the past for not having enough photos. These contests are here to inspire others! Here's a perfect example of a project post.

If you have a build video on YouTube, you can put that in your project submission but you still need to include photos of the finished piece.
