Rockler Woodworking and Hardware, in partnership with The Modern Maker Podcast, has just announced winners of its #RocklerPlywoodChallenge. Participants were asked to make something using one sheet of plywood, any type, and to then post their entry on Instagram using the hashtag #RocklerPlywoodChallenge. The top three winners were "Modern Coffee Table" by OSODIY, "Bentwood Chair" by Sami Chi, and "Standup Paddleboard" by PC Makes.

The 2nd Place winner of #RocklerPlywoodChallenge was the beautiful “Bentwood Chair” by Sami_Chi.

Chris Salomone, Mike Montgomery of Modern Builds and Ben Uyeda of HomeMade Modern – all of whom are key Rockler content partners - judged the entries. Chris Salomone summed up the judges’ comments with, "I think I speak for Mike and Ben when I say we were absolutely floored by the quality and the quantity of participation that this challenge garnered. And when I think about the thought and execution that went into some of these projects, it blows my mind.”

Another stunning design with incredible craftsmanship was the third-place winner, “Standup Paddleboard” by PC_Makes.

“It’s as if every participant challenged themselves to transform a basic building material into a work of art,” says Nathan Ensminger, marketing manager at Rockler. Ensminger adds, “Building something from a single sheet of plywood might sound simple, but the projects shared by the community were anything but basic.”
