The LumberJocks Woodworking Awards Winter 2010 is just a month away. This year we are focusing on just one category. The goal is to highlight the creativity of all of our members (regardless of skill level) through the use of materials that are available to all woodworkers. And here it is:

Yin Yang - the dark and the light. Where would one be without the other? Create a project that uses colour (dark and light wood, stains, etc.) to convey how contrasts work together to make the whole. When you post your project describe the Yin Yang effect that you created.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



1st place - $400 gift certificate & Bench Cookies by Rockler
10 runner-ups[/B] - Bench Cookies by Rockler

Not everyone can be "the best" but everyone do try their best. For this reason The Wood Whisperer will offer three random winners the 6-month TWW Guild membership.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The entry deadline is January 31, 2010 at 3 PM CDT and you can enter the Awards page here.

Note to twitter power users: spread the word by clicking on the blue twitter share button on the Awards page and your linked tweet will appear in the live LJ Awards twitter stream.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We usually see about 50-60 entries. Can we reach 100 entries this time? That's the challenge ;)

Good luck!

Thanks for the sneak preview, Martin. Sounds like a good challenge. My thinking cap is already on and I'm looking for just the right pieces of wood…

Debbie, thanks for the inspiration. I get the black and white part, I just don't know what to do with it. :) Somehow, I don't think a plain chessboard is going to cut it for this contest.

This is a wonderful idea for the contest. I hope I will have something to enter. I'm not very creative, but my oldest son is an art director in a advertising agency, so my first thought was to get an idea from him, but I promise I won't do that. If I manage to make an entry it will be my own idea for better or worse.

personally, I think it is a great idea to use your resources for inspiration and generation of ideas!! But if you want to make it a personal challenge to come up with your own idea as well, then that is also an excellent idea :)
Regardless of which way you go-best of luck with the process! :)

Hey….don't be too hard on the "chessboard". I don't know if it will win or not but if that is someones skill level let's encourage them to participate too. The contest is not all about winning (I've seen the projects that do win…Great work Gary and others and lord knows I can't beat them) but if we are going to get 100 people to join we need everyone to feel they can put a project in. I know no one was being mean spirited with the comments but just wanted to put in a plug for the chessboard, they can be very nice projects.

you're right Duane.
I was going to say that in my comment but decided just to stick with the joking. ... I should have considered the bigger picture :)
thanks for pointing it out.
