The Vermont Wood Manufacturers Association is holding the 2011 Vermont Fine Furniture and Wood Products Design Competition. The competition is open to state woodworkers at all skill levels and is divided into three sections: professional, apprentice and student.
The professional competition will be further divided into production furniture, custom or studio furniture, production woodenware, custom woodenware and carvings/sculptural categories.
The competition will be held at Union Arena in Woodstock, Vt., in conjunction with the eighth annual Fine Furniture and Woodworking Festival on Sept. 24-25.
Each piece entered will be viewed and evaluated based on quality of craftsmanship and integrity of design by a team of industry professionals.
An evening award reception will be held Sept. 24 at Union Arena for entrants and invited guests. The VWMA is currently collecting prizes for the winners of each competition.
