The San Diego Fine Woodworkers Association issued a call for entries for its 29th annual Design in Wood exhibition, scheduled for June 11-July 5, 2010, during the San Diego County Fair at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in Del Mar, Calif.
The 2010 exhibition will offer a theme-based award on "Taste and Fun" and the competition is open to all woodworkers. More than 350 entries are expected in 22 categories with awards totaling more than $21,000. A "Best in Show" award of $1,000 will be sponsored by American Woodworker magazine.
Entry categories include:
? Traditional and contemporary furniture and accessories
? Art furniture
? Made for children
? Model building (scale and not to scale)
? Musical instruments
? Wood turning (face work and center work)
? Embellished/mixed media
? Wood carving (animals, birds, marine animals, open class)
? Scroll saw (intarsia and fretwork)
With a view toward expanding the breadth of the Design in Wood show, the organizers are looking for further entries in the wood carving category to include birds and animals, clocks, made-for-children and traditional furniture pieces.
The deadline for entry is April 30, 2010. Mail-in entry forms will be available in January. For information, visit www.sdfwa.org.
