Are you knotty and keeping secrets?

Then it’s time to get busy and creative again and compete for some great prizes in our Winter 2009 edition of the LumberJocks Woodworking Awards.

You are welcome to participate in the following two categories:

A Knot Like No Other – It’s creativity time! Don’t let that big old knot get you down – incorporate it into a project, highlighting it’s beauty or uniqueness. You can knock out the wood (if there is some) and use just the hole or keep the wood intact and include it in your design. It’s time to get knotty with your woodworking. Be sure to describe how the knot inspired you.

A Secret Compartment – Sshhh!! It will be just our little secret—where have you hidden that special storage compartment in your woodworking project? Whether you are building a box, a chair, or any other creation, use your design and woodworking skills to add a secret compartment that no one will find unless they know it is there! This project is all about the “secret”.

There are several chances to win great prizes from our fantastic sponsors in both categories. And The Best Overall LumberJock will get a special Grand Prize – brand new DeWalt Tracksaw.

I know you’re eager to see the complete prize list and read all the details and rules so the last piece of information I’d like to share with you is the entry deadline and that is January 31, 2009 at 3 PM CDT.

Click here to enter the wonderful world of LumberJocks Woodworking Awards Winter 2009.

Have fun and spread the word… Good luck!

If anyone can pull off the resolute desk, I’d say they don’t exactly need the Dewalt tracksaw.
