There is a woodturning contest that started August 18th that you may not be aware of.
The Patriot Woodworker announced its first annual woodturning contest in partnership with Woodcraft’s National Turn for Troops Event and Easy Wood Tools. The contest runs through October 1st and entries are made via photo by email. 1st place will win a special Patriot set of Easy Wood Tools.
Any type of turning is eligible: pens, bowls, vessels, hats, etc. There are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places and a People’s Choice award. Once the top three finalists are determined, they will be asked to ship their turning to the Patriot Woodworker for final judging. Also, the pieces will not be returned, but will be auctioned with all proceeds donated to Homes For Our Troops.
