The Woodworking Network’s Young Woodworking Professionals Week kicks off today, January 8th, and there’s already a lot to see! The annual competition celebrates outstanding projects created by young makers aged 18-35, who submit their entries via the hashtag #YWPweek on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. This open entry process is pretty cool for us spectators, allowing us to easily check out all the goods before winners are chosen.
The competition is open to any type of project, including furniture, cabinetry, millwork and sculpture. Wanna vote on your favorites? Head to the Woodworking Network’s Facebook page this week, through January 12th. The Top 5 will be recognized at Wood Pro Expo Charlotte, and the winner will be announced on February 15th at 4pm at the Woodworking Network’s Wood Pro Expo booth.
Here are some of the entries contestants have shared:
@WoodworkingBiz I built this small table, bench, and two stools for my niece and nephews to enjoy. It has turned into a popular play space in their home. Their dad even gets in on the action! #YWPweek pic.twitter.com/i6YlvlhjO5
