Here’s your chance to showcase your latest woodworking projects while competing for prizes. The rules are simple and, like everything else at LumberJocks, there’s no fee to enter.

The best part of this competition? There will be no designated jury of experts. You and your fellow LumberJocks will cast the votes. This creates a truly democratic voting process from our exceptional woodworking community.


  1. Garden Project - Why waste your summer hours just sitting by the pool and smelling the roses when you can sit by the table saw and smell the sawdust instead!! But wait, it gets even better -- now you can build that summer project AND enter this year's Summer Contest Category "GARDEN PROJECT". Set aside those water goggles and build something cool for your garden to compete in this outdoor theme. Let the summer games begin!!
  2. Wood Joinery - Let's get technical - but without glues, metal nails, screws or other mechanical fasteners! Yes, this is the "WOOD JOINERY" challenge for all you LumberJocks out there. Let's see what you are made of - or rather what your woodworking project is made of. If you can build it with screws, you can build it without. Pure and Simple: Envision it, build it, enter it. Note that entries in this category should have at least one joint and NO glue or mechanical fasteners should be used to create the joint(s).
