I agree with Roger….there should be delineations (beginners, intermediate, advanced, pro (broken out by years of experience or by those that do it for a living) to allow the less experienced woodworkers to have a go. This will certainly boost the participation – most of us know there are some highly talented folks here on LJ’s that even very experienced wood workers don’t feel they would stand a chance against in a competition. I would tend to agree….myself not being good at artistry. My work tending more to the mechanical aspect. Categories then could be as mentioned in the main post – or something like – freeform, classic, joinery, hand tool, etc…etc..these can be decided before the competition and then the participant can submit their entry as a “beginner, hand tool” or “intermediate joinery”....etc.

I do not enter contests myself as I never win anything (I can prove it for sure)...LOL. Truthfully, though, I do not enter contests as I have way too much on my plate and too little time to do it….I do not need the extra stress involved. I would be happy to help in the judging as a “disinterested woodworker”....I can at least tell the difference between a dovetail and a box joint….LOL.

-- Woodworking.....My small slice of heaven!
