The Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers has issued a call for entries to its Fresh Wood student woodworking competition, which culminates with an exhibition and awards ceremony at the 2021 AWFS Fair in Las Vegas.
The competition is open to high school and post-secondary students in accredited woodworking or related programs. There are six categories – Case Goods, Seating, Tables, Design for Production, Open, and Remote Woodworking, a special theme added for this competition.
“Any wood project made while remote learning, or to improve aspects of learning or working remotely may be entered,” explains AWFS education manager Adam Kessler.
Design for Production has a new twist: students must design a functional item manufactured out of one 4’ x 8’ sheet of plywood. All structural wood components must nest inside of and be cut from the same sheet.
Entries will be rated by a panel of judges that represent different aspects of the industry. Finalists will have their work displayed at the fair.
The entry deadline is May 3, 2021. For more, visit www.awfsfair.org.
