High School Woodworkers in Texas. What do you think?

These are photos of the woodworking projects that were entered in the Texas SkillsUSA (formerly know as VICA) Skills and Leadership conference this past week. As you can see from the first photo, there were a large number of projects entered. The projects were judges by a group of about 20 professional cabinet makers. The students are enrolled in Cabinet Making and Carpentry classes.

All had to compete at a district level and receive a blue ribbon at that level to advance to state. While looking at the primary project in the photo, you can see some of the many other projects that were entered. Projects with multiple ribbons were group projects.

One of the Best of Show entries.

This hutch was Best of Show at the District contest I chaired. Glad to see it received a Best of Show at the state level as well.

Another hutch with a granite work surface.

Not all projects were large. This was produced with a CNC router.

This small case was for shotgun reloading supplies.

This hutch and desk was a single entry by four students.

This is an ice chest, Texas sized! The liner appeared to be made of stainless steel, welded to prevent leaks. Another Best of Show.

How about a natural edge cedar picnic table.

Unique folding chair. If I count right, there are 36 hinges.

How about another chair. How much plywood and sandpaper did this take? Also another Best of Show.

This photo shows about half the projects that were entered, some of the examples of what I think is outstanding work for high school students.

Hope you appreciate the efforts of the students and their teachers.
Very impressive work from everyone.
