no previous part Part 1 of LJ Woodworking Awards - Winter 2012 series Part 2: Announcement »

It’s that time of year again and, here, you are getting a sneak peek at our upcoming Winter Awards. The category is:

Your Inner Child
Children love to play with toys, explore the mechanics of an object, hide things, find things, touch things, listen to things, and just look at things. Our Winter Awards, this year, is for the children. Create something for a child, something that he or she will play with in some way and, as always, describe the project for us – your inspiration, how the project will be used by a child, what you have done to make it child-safe, and any other tidbit you would like to share.

You an review all past LJ Awards here.

Get ready and start planning ;)

Interesting. If the contest will be starting in January as usual, I’m glad I seen this so I have time to think on it. I have made many toys. However, I think that if I want to enter and have even the slightest chance of competing with the talent here at Lumberjocks I would have to step it up a notch (or three or four).

Great! That give me time to think about it in the tiny bit of free time I’ll have from now until the kids go back to school after Christmas. It is amazing how fast time is slipping away lately. I wrapped the first Christmas presents of the year this week. The holiday mayhem really doesn’t sink in with me until I wrap those first presents.

Looks like another fun and challenging adventure! As usual, it will be a pleasure to see the talents – novice to master level, of all Lumber Jock participants from all walks of life. Small or large, your project will be admired if done with TLC.

That’s why I love, there’s no wall to keep you from joining and enjoying the sharing atmosphere here.

My inner child’s interest has been piqued, Martin.
