Woodworker's Challenge Coordinated by the Woodworkers Committee
An Annual Event that Showcases Member's Projects
A Competition Among Fellow Members !
The 14th Annual Woodworker's Challenge occured on Wednesday, November 6th. All Corporation members were invited to participate.
What is It? Members bring in projects that are entered into one of seven categories and compete against each other for awards. When is the Next One?Wednesday, November 4, 2020 - All projects must be checked in by 6pm. Where is It Held? The Woodworkers Committee meets in the Community Room at Station One of the Belgium Cold Springs Fire Department, 7920 River Road, Baldwinsville What are the Categories?

What-Not (a catch-all category that includes items that don't fit into other categories)
Are there Rules? The rules are simple:
You must be present and be a member of the Woodworkers of Central New York, Inc. as of October 16th to participate .[you cannot join at the November meeting or once you receive the November newsletter!]
No kit-based projects may be used. You can build from someone else's plans.
You may enter only one project per category.
Who Judges the Projects? Judging is done by members in attendance at the event. Voting starts at 6:40pm so we ask that all entries be checked-in at the front desk and delivered to the tables by 6pm. Each attendee has one vote for their 1st place in each category as well as their Best in Show project. Ribbons will be awarded for 1st thru 5th places as well as honorable mention. What Should Attendees Uses to Judge Projects? Leadership hopes that attendees will review each project presented for its quality of design, construction, use of wood, and finish and then vote appropriately. Can I See Past Projects? Below is a slideshow of all projects from the 2017 edition of the Woodworker's Challenge. Above is the 2018 edition. The Categories are Too Broad - Can They Be Narrowed? Each year the categories are reviewed to determine if we need to change, add, or otherwise modify. A team will review after this year's event and may make changes for 2019.
At the 2019 event, we had 59 entries, the most ever, with 30 members participating! Here is a photo gallery of all projects from the 2019 event.
